'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.

Your gods may have given him a "god given right" but other people's gods told him that all men/women are created equal. Organized religions are, for the most part, violent, intolerant of others and ignorant. If this show gets high ratings, then it's just people watching a train wreck for entertainment much like the Christians and the Lions. History keeps repeating itself.

Good! the "Duck Dynasty" logo is a A+E thing.

The Robertson's brand is Duck Commander. The logo merchandise there is less expensive because it does not carry the A+E mark up. GLAAD sissies were not buying these products so I doubt it can hurt sales much.

Cracker Barrel tries to act country but just manages to prove they are not!

Cracker Barrel is discriminating against Phil for his religious beliefs. Stand up for religious freedom and:

So, if I read his comments correctly not only will homosexuals not inherit the kingdom of good, but drunkards and adulterers...which is exactly what Phil Robertson is. Seems to me Jess awfully good at judging others harshly but needs to take a look in the mirror. Hell be in hell with everyone he judges, according to his "god"

Good to know. Cracker Barrel will no longer be considered as a place I will spend my money.

He didn't make any racist or "homophobic" (whatever that means) comments. Unlike LGBT's, he expressed no hatred and didn't demand that others accept his opinion. All he did was utilize his 1st amendment right when asked a question. And BTW, he has an adopted biracial (black) Grandson whim he loves.
