Posted on 12/22/2013 9:30:37 AM PST by ColdOne
On Sunday, just two days after announcing it would be pulling some Duck Dynasty products featuring Phil Robertson from its stores, Cracker Barrel announced that it had reversed itself and would reinstate all Duck Dynasty products. In an announcement via Twitter, Cracker Barrel wrote:

Translation: We realize more Phil Robertson fans eat in our restaurants than homosexuals. Whoops!
Nice try. Too late. You foolishly made the call and jumped to conclusions and I hope your customers become your X-customers. Since there aren’t any of your stores where I live you won’t be losing me anyway but I know there’s a bunch in the south and I hope them “ignorant” red necks stay away in droves.
Duh! They’re still stupid. If they want to atone, then the head of who ever thought the fag lobby mattered needs to roll.
Maybe we have turned a corner on the stranglehold which political correctness has on this country? We’ll see. This turnaround sure didn’t take long.
All hail meatloaf and cornbread...
They should have written, “We realize that sometimes you can’t please everybody. We’re going where the money is, not adhering to any specific principle of freedom of speech.” /S
I don’t eat the crappy slop that Cracker Barrel serves and trys to pass as food. I eat healthy and I don’t think they know what healthy food would be if they ever had any there. But KUDO’s to Cracker Barrel for doing the right thing for their customers.
“All hail meatloaf and cornbread...”
Are those characters on Duck Dynasty?
Too late in my opinion. They are just as bad as A & E siding with the gay community. If I had a Cracker Barrel in my area I would not eat there nor accept their apology.
Might A & E be next?
In my opinion, they never should have weighed in on this in the first place. They could have just kept the status quo and then nobody would have been offended. Instead, now everybody is offended in some way. Liberals have to be angry that they reversed course. And the rest of us were offended in the first place by their knee jerk politically correct reaction of pulling the merchandise in the first place.
Way to go. Nice to p.o. everybody.
"....they got more backwash then they ever knew possible...screw em, boycott them for another week anyway for being so stooopid"
I was shocked that CB jumped in AFTER it already became obvious that GLAAD had overplayed their hand and a full throated backlash was in progress. Too little too late, I’m afraid.
They just announced this late in the morning today (Sunday)
I’d be curious what their breakfast revenue will be today compared to previous Sunday mornings...and a Sunday morning before Christmas.
There are a hell of a lot more Phil Robertsons living in this country than there are homosexuals.
I forgive them and will continue to eat at CB at the same rate I have for the last 20 years ever since that Thanksgiving fiasco where we waited over an hour and I think a portion of our food were table scraps from someone else’s dinner.
Somebody in the Cracker Barrel management team is definitely going to get nailed for this one. Offending customers right before the last minute retail gift push!
I bet their yesterday’s sales receipts just tanked. When their daily numbers came in to the corporate HQ, there must have been a whole lot of shrieking.
Not many in the “Pajama Boy” crowd eat at CB. Who ever made that decision should probably be canned for not understanding the customers. It’s Christmas, so I don’t really hope anyone gets canned, but I wouldn’t be surprised if that happened.
Now go fire the idiots who made the knee-jerk decision.
Didn’t Lonesome Rhodes pontificate over some cracker barrel?
the fact that i live in Southeast Florida means I’m an ignorant red neck?
Amazing how many stupid executives a’re out there. Educated idiots. Don’t they even have a clue of.who their customers are?
Hey, YO! QUACKERBARREL!
WANNA BUY A DUCK?
What kind of quackery is this anyway?
Where was the part about how you fired the fools that called that shot?
The suspense is killin me.
Dear Cracker Barrel Customer:
When we made the decision to remove and evaluate certain Duck Dynasty items, we
offended many of our loyal customers. Our intent was to avoid offending, but
thats just what weve done.
You told us we made a mistake. And, you werent shy about it. You wrote, you
called and you took to social media to express your thoughts and feelings.
You flat out told us we were wrong.
Today, we are putting all our Duck Dynasty products back in our stores.
And, we apologize for offending you.
We respect all individuals right to express their beliefs. We certainly did not
mean to have anyone think different.
We sincerely hope you will continue to be part of our Cracker Barrel family.
Another thread if anyone is interested in reading the comments thereon:
Remember: $ spent on “Duck Dynasty” products goes to A&E. $ spent of “Duck Commander” products goes to the Robertsons.
VICTORY! VICTORY! VICTORY!
h/t the “Daleks”
HAHA. I am one of the many who sent them a little note. This thing that glaad does is preposterous and we need to fight back hard.
The fact that glaad was able to get such an immediate concession from A&E tells us even more clearly that this was all intentionally done. As a vehicle to promote glaad, and stifle Christians at CHRISTMAS TIME. Why do you think A&E used the wording that they are “champions” of glaad?
This is strange - just pulled up an ABCNews article (written today) that Cracker Barrel is pulling DD stuff off their shelves...
ABC - a Day late - a Dollar short - and Defective reporting
Do you remember Bonanza and Ponderosa restaurants?
The Duck Commander brand will most likely move into the restaurant chain business.
Yes, but now stiff em. To hell with quacker barrel. That bell has been rung!
CRACKER BARREL....yah, sounds kind of racist to me.
....hmmm...Quackers...wonder if that brand is taken. Yeah probably.
Nope, and their classmates are running the country. Heaven help us.
You mean, unlike A&E, they didn’t care if their gay employees were offended?
CB was wrong. They admitted it. That means I am now happy, happy, happy.
This show has been the ONE AND ONLY show on the air that has NOT
pushed a liberal agenda down our throats! I watch the show EVERY
week not because I really like it, but, because I want their ratings to
succeed, the show is at most just OK! Americans ARE TRULY fed up
WE WANT OUR DAMNED COUNTRY BACK! This DUCK family has given me hope MAY GOD BLESS THEM, they have truly brought the
American people to their fight! I have hope again and I thank them for
showing me that AMERICA IS AWAKE NOW! GOD BLESS THE DUCK!
I'm not amazed.
They're a major reason why the economy and America is in the toilet.
They need to be rewarded for correcting their decision.
I'll be eating at Cracker Barrel for dinner tonight.
How do you spell “Handwriting on the Wall”? In any case, somebody at Cracker Barrel has noticed it. Probably the CEO who followed it up with his “You did what?” phone call.
They got the message from all the empty chairs in the dining rooms.
It's all about negative and positive reinforcement.
They caught hell from us (negative reinforcement) when they made their initial decision about Phil Robertson products.
We need to reward them now (positive reinforcement) for correcting that bad decision.
Others will learn from our treatment of Cracker Barrel.
