'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.

Good luck catering to those with a passion for anal sex. I guess Cracker Barrel and anal sex is now synonymous

If these sponsers were concerned with fairness they would not have pulled their products period. Even an opinion that does not fit in with yours is an opinion that we are free to have. Gays and lesbians state their views every where all the time. You are supposed to agree with them but never are Christian values ok to have or put voice . This will hurt A%E and any sponser who withdraws any product. Even if they leave others on the shelves. Come on. We have the freedom of speech or we don't. You can't have it your way all the time, We are still a Christian Nation no matter what the main stream media and idiots try to push. Get Over It Already.

What's the difference between gays and a refrigerator? A refrigerator doesn't fart when you pull out the meat. :)

I've heard from people who actually work there, although I cannot confirm, that Duck Dynasty products have been removed, but not Duck Commander products. Duck Dynasty is the name of their show on A&E (ie, Licensed by the TV Channel), while Duck Commander is their actual company owned and operated by the family. Please confirm before bashing Cracker Barrel, because they might actually deserve praise instead.
