“Every time I go to Walmart, I feel like all eyes go straight to me. There’s one about ten miles from my house. You walk in, and there are TV’s on display, and each of them has ‘Duck Dynasty’ on. Then you see things like ‘Duck Dynasty’ band aids. That is so weird to me, but people like it.”

4. She Said Fame Is Not an Excuse to Lose Faith
In March, the young Robertson interviewed with Fox411.
She talked about how people use popularity to give up on their religion:
I think people use fame as an excuse to lose their faith. Faith is obviously my number one priority and I think you need to put God at the top of everything you do.
The family-oriented teen also reiterated that the intentions of the reality show were always pure.
“When we began Duck Dynasty, we weren’t starting it for fame,” she said. “We started it to get the message of God out there.”
5. She Has a YouTube Show Where She Quotes Scripture
She dished to Fox about why she started the inspiration program:
We started The New Different because we saw all of these people get famous from doing stupid things on Vine and YouTube and we thought if they can put the stupidest things online and have millions of views, why don’t we start a Christian-based video series?
