Mayor Parker clarifies controversial statement

Headline Goes Here

HOUSTON - Houston Mayor Annise Parker is weighing in on the Duck Dynasty controversy.

On Saturday the mayor sent out a tweet, clearing up the statements she made during an interview with Lone Star Q, a LGBT news source.

"When I called Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty "a redneck wingnut whose views are completely irrelevant" I was serious. Who cares? -A" Parker tweeted Saturday.

Robertson was suspended from the A&E Network, after an interview with G.Q. Magazine in which he voiced his opinion on homosexuality.

Parker's comment has sparked quite a response, including a call for an apology from Republican Texas Agriculture Commission Candidate Sid Miller.
