Skip to comments.Cracker Barrel Bails on Phil's Products
Posted on 12/21/2013 11:14:03 AM PST by Andy'smom
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."

No more Cracker Barrel products for me. Join the boycott.
be eating there anymore
>>equal treatment of all people.
Adolph Hitler, the ultimate Socialist figurehead, is equal to you and me and Mother Teresa in the new faggotty world order.
Time for those million or so who clicked “Like” on Facebook to find somewhere else to eat. Anyone for Chick-fil-A for lunch?
Buh bye CB. Nice knowing you.
Restaurant decides to commit suicide.
I’ve never been to Cracker Barrel. None near me. But, if I ever got the chance, I wanted to go eat there.
Not any more.
Cracker Barrel just lost my business and gained my influence to convince others to never spend another dime there.
One suspects that CB (lawyers?) made a huge miscalc, here.
My ongoing question, about this situation, and situations such as Paula Deen, is:
if someone says something which the liberals object to, does that person have to disappear from public life? Do they really have to be shunned, have their TV shows and book deals cancelled, and disappear as if they never existed??
And, why is it that the liberals decide on the criteria for something said, which is so shocking to liberals, that the liberals decide who is allowed to be on TV?
And, since Phil was basically quoting Bible verses, have we reached a point at which the Bible itself is considered hate speech, per liberal criteria? And again, why is it that liberal criteria are the criteria which decide who is allowed to be a public figure?
Plenty of product at Wally world still.
I do want a duck call for the upcoming
Tea Protests and campaigns.
Their service is SOOOOO SLOW. Ya can't just eat there quick if you are trying to make time on a long haul drive.
They need to take their “corporate culture” and shove it.
You would think that the Cracker Barrel people would understand what it is like to be persecuted in this country for being conservative, Christian, white, male and from the South.
Here is the email I just sent them:
You people have literally NO gay customers.
By pulling Phil Robertson products you have rejected your normal customers.
Good bye, I will not ever stop there any longer since you took the side of the gay bullies.
Ya know, I travel a lot, have for many years, 80% in an Auto. Never ate at a cracker barrel except once. Now I have a reason to not do it again.
I would suggest everyone do not tune into A&E, unless DD is on. Kindergarten, show and tell.
Time to slam the door on these jerks too. Facebook, company comment site etc.
Screw you, CB... you are dead to me. I’ll never eat there again (and I really, really like their mac&cheese! Mmmmmmmm......)
Somehow I suspect this is where Bill O’Reilly dines out.
Except for Phil Robertson, of course.
CB is still gunshy after their own brush with the PC Gestapo about a decade (or two) ago.
But, they’re off my restaurant list anyway. Any place that chooses sodomites over Christians is not a place that I want touching my food.
Cracker Barrel's statement led to confusion among some customers who wondered if the restaurant was removing Duck Dynasty products owned by A&E or products owned by the Robertson family's Duck Commander business.
Cracker Barrel did not return phone calls seeking clarification or comment.

Apparently, they don’t know who their customers are. Gays don’t eat there.
LOL! Know your market! I dare say, many of the folk who chow-down at CB also watch DD and do not like this asinine PC maneuver. I think CB just shot off its own foot! Phil and family must be sitting around bemused at all the frantic silliness.
that is the exact reason I had to stop seeing a gay hairdresser, didn’t want him touching my hair
Cracker Barrel management can go piss up a rope.
(And I've never watched D.D.)
Just make sure you buy from Duck Commander, and not Duck Dynasty (Walmart).
A&E gets a share of all Duck Dynasty merchandise sold. Duck Commander is the Robertson family's business.
But alas, that's not the case here. Especially at this time of year.
Big mistake Cracker Barrel!
Oh well, this will be an opportunity to explore some new dining establishments.
I love their grilled catfish with a side of biscuits and gravy, even though that stuff didn’t do my diet any good. But until things change, no more for us.
Less of a restaurant, more of an elaborate practical joke.
You need to understand that liberals are hypocritical.
Remember how all the liberals stood up in support of Martin Bashir when he said those awful things about Sarah Palin?
Remember how all the liberals stood up in support of the Dixie Chicks when they said they were embarrassed George W. Bush was from Texas?
But, now they attack Phil Robertson for speaking about his views on gays and want to prohibit his Freedom of Speech!
They are all hypocrites.
CB is DEAD to me!
You don't alienate your core customers just for the sake of getting kudos from a tiny, oppressive minority that will still hate your guts anyway.
I like their food. But they’re not the only restaurant around that sells it.
My understanding that the merchandise being pulled is Duck Dynasty merchandise licensed by A&E.
The Duck Commander merchandise , which is licensed through the family is still on the shelves.
Never heard of this place but if I did I would NEVER do business with them
There are many Cracker Barrel restaurants near us and my family and friends go there frequently. Not any more. Not after this. And I don’t even watch Duck Dynasty.
Duck Dynasty brand is owned by A&E.
Duck Commander brand is owned by the Robertsons.
It appears that the A&E brand has been taken out of their stores, but not the Robetson’s brand.
But . . . but it worked so well with Howard Stern.
I was at Dick’s and they had plenty of Duck Dynasty stuff.
I’d boycott them, but I don’t think I’ve ever been to a cracker barrel in my life. If I have, I’ve forgotten it.
Most of these corporate types would enjoy that.
The Left (and their supporters) need to take its own medicine.
It just astounds me how many corporations are completely clueless when it comes to knowing their customer base.
It also appears that many corporate execs don't follow the news well enough to have noted the disastrous self-inflicted wounds that other businesses have brought upon themselves by choosing to knuckle under to the pc gestapo.
Cases such as these prove the old adage, "Stupid Hurts".
