'Duck Dynasty'

Cracker Barrel Bails On Phil's Products

Exclusive Details

1221-phil-duck-dynasty-cracker-barrel
Cracker Barrel has become the first sponsor to cut bait with "Duck Dynasty" ... but not entirely.

The Southern-themed food chain reacted to Phil Robertson's anti-gay comments by removing "selected products which we were concerned might offend some of our guests" from their stores and restaurants.

We called a bunch of Cracker Barrel stores, and the managers told us the products that were removed were the ones that had Phil's face plastered on the packaging.  Almost to a person, the managers added, "We still offer a wide variety of Duck Commander products," and then we heard a click.

C.B. offers this explanation ... "We operate within the ideals of fairness, mutual respect and equal treatment of all people. These ideals are the core of our corporate culture."

As for most of the remaining products ... we're told you can find them in the sale bin.

It appears to me that Cracker Barrel IS SUPPORTING Phil Robertson by removing Duck DYNASTY merchandise. The Duck DYNASTY stuff is an A&E trademark and profits go to A&E! Duck Commander is the Robertson family brand! I am eating at Cracker Barrel! Thank CB for standing for freedom of speech and against political correctness!

GLAAD, LGBT's, NAMBLA have received a free pass from the media and government to trash Christianity,
morality and clean living in the most graphic and despicable terms. No more! We will boycott these
businesses who support these aberrant lifestyles and vote out their government protectors.
