'Duck Dynasty' Star Gets Kicked Out of The Trump Hotel For Looking Like a Homeless Person

If you have long grizzly hair and a long grizzly beard to match, then you should carry your room key in one of those clear pouches around your neck when staying at The Trump Hotel in New York.

Jase Robertson, one of the stars of "Duck Dynasty", a reality TV show about the family who manufacture duck calls, revealed on Live! With Kelly and Michael that he had been kicked out of the Trump hotel near Central Park for looking like a homeless person. Here's what Robertson said went down

"I asked where the bathroom was and [the hotel employee] said, 'Right this way, sir.' He was very nice, he walked me outside, pointed down the road and said, 'Good luck.'"

Robertson later joked that the hotel had been "facial-profiling" him. It probably didn't help that he was also wearing camo pants. But he was a good sport about it and continued to stay at the hotel. (He just put 'em on blast on national TV.)

Meanwhile, the Trump gave this statement to Fox News:

We are investigating this very unfortunate situation,” said Suzie Mills, the general manager for Trump International Hotel & Tower, in a statement to Fox News. “Mr. Robertson is a valued guest of our hotel and the members of our staff know who he is.”

We've always advised dressing up when checking into a hotel if you want an upgrade, but clearly when you're staying in a luxury hotel like Trump, dressing up will mean much better overall service--and hopefully, not get you kicked out.

Way back when I just started working at the Front Desk of an upscale downtown hotel, my supervisor spotted a slovenly character in a baseball cap who had been sitting in the lobby for an extended period. She called Security to have him removed. Fortunately, the Security officer recognized him to be Michael Eisner, then CEO of Disney.
