'Duck Dynasty'

Cracker Barrel Bails On Phil's Products

Exclusive Details

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.

And do they actually think this will affect their pocketbooks ? The merchandise these stores carry make more for A & E or the Disney Corporations. Duck Commander products are control solely by the Robertson family. Duck Dynasty products are not.

That's funny as hell since Cracker Barrel is a homophobic company. Remember a few years back they were suied by a group of lesbians for discrimination.
Besides their food sucks.

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.

This is rich. Cracker Barrel has been in the media quite a few times for their own s***. They're just trying to save face. Carrying merchandise with Phil's face on it would, in their eyes, have people believe that they support his beliefs, and ultimately negate every defense Cracker Barrel had against their own lawsuits and negative press. You're not fooling anyone Cracker Barrel! Food is good but your past reputation isn't too far off from what's going on now.

I find it a bit ironic that a company named "Cracker Barrel" would dump Robertson.. He should be their mascot.

I usually patronize a Cracker Barrel just 1.1 mi. from my home. If they can play the political correctness game, so can I. Cracker Barrel is now "offensive to me". There is an IHOP just 1 mi. further away.

I can't beleive that CB would cave to this foolishness. This was Phil's free speech that appears to be another set up . The media needs to DISTRACT for BHOs failures again(IRS,NSA,BENGHAZI,OBAMACARE CLUNKERS,SOLYNDRA)! nEED i GO ON?? I am considering boycotting CB!! Maybe the 2% gays will fill my spot.
