The men of A&E's massively successful "Duck Dynasty" series are known for sporting long, shaggy beards that seem to contradict the clean-cut stereotype of American wealth.

Though the unscripted series' fourth season premiere scored a whopping 11.8 million viewers on Wednesday, star Jase Robertson told "Live! With Kelly and Michael" that he'd been sent out of his New York City hotel when an employee confused him for a homeless person.

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

"So I circled back around, and my wife said, 'What happened?' and I just said I just got kicked out," he added.

The 44-year-old reality star and millionaire said he had experienced "facial profiling," but didn't take the incident too seriously and finished out his stay at the hotel.
