FOX News-- Duck Dynasty star Willie Robertson has been axed from speaking at a Family Ministries benefit in Bristol, Tennessee. 


The faith and bible based organization decided Robertson shouldn't attend after the family announced they will be launching "Duck Commander Wines" next month. Family Ministries believes allowing Robertson to speak would "send mixed messages to the young people who go through our Adolescent Drug and Alcohol program."
