Cracker Barrel returns ‘Duck Dynasty’ products to shelves after public outcry

Cracker Barrel returns ‘Duck Dynasty’ products to shelves after public outcry

In a quick reversal of its previous decision to remove some Duck Dynasty products from its shelves after recent comments made by Phil Robertson, Cracker Barrel announced Sunday that it is putting all its Duck Dynasty products back in its stores.

“You flat out told us we were wrong,” the company said of the public’s response to that previous decision.

Here’s the full statement Cracker Barrel posted on its Facebook page Sunday morning:

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 that’s just what we’ve done.

You told us we made a mistake. And, you weren’t 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.

We listened.

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.

In its previous statement, Cracker Barrel said it would “continue to offer Duck Commander products in our stores,” but it indicated that it had “removed selected products which we were concerned might offend some of our guests while we evaluate the situation.”

Dear President of CrackerBarrel,

I cannot believe that you did not anticipate that your core customer group would be offended by this move. So, here is a humble suggestion: Try visiting your restaurants and see who is eating there!

Sincerely,

Matt Musson

Own Goal!

A&E Wins!

The Duck Dynasty line is owned by A&E. Y’all pressured CB into abandoning their rejection of A&E, and go back to sending them money. Way to go!

Phil Robertson’s line was Duck Commander They hadn’t dropped that.

Made cowardly decision then cowardly backtrack. Would have done nothing if not forced to by outcry. They are not your friends or allies.

Whichever gay-sympathizer executive made the original decision to bend over (if I may turn a phrase) for the GLBT noisemakers needs to be fired.

DC is the most watched show on cable ever, they say. It makes many millions of $$$.

Anyone who thinks A&E is going to walk away from that over ‘principle’ raise your hand.

Anyone who thinks the Robertson family WON’T walk away over principle, raise your hand.

OK, you in the back with your hand up – question ? Yes, you may be excused if you want to go to the bathroom.

A columnist at Forbes nailed it. She called Cracker Barrel’s moves a clusterduck.

It looks like Cracker Barrel has its own eggs on its face while ducking from a huge pushback from the customers who, partially for the nostalgia, come to their restaurant/store (and also have sex… home-style).

OMG ! I done think I found the guy at A&E that tried to boot Phil Robinson from the show !

‘Duck Dynasty’ creator Scott Gurney starred in indie ‘gay porn’ film

http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2013/12/20/duck-dynasty-creator-scott-gurney-starred-in-indie-gay-porn-film/

The producer and creator of the A&E show “Duck Dynasty” once starred in a dark, homoerotic indie film about the gay porn industry called “The Fluffer.”

BuzzFeed reported Friday that in 2001, Scott Gurney played a “gay-for-pay” meth addict who acts in erotic videos. The film premiered that year at the Toronto Film Festival.

“The Fluffer” revolved around the destructive relationship between Gurney’s character and a gay college student — played by Michael Cunio — employed to keep Gurney aroused on set during filming.

For now, noted BuzzFeed reporter Kate Arthur, the film remains proudly displayed on Gurney’s IMDB page.

Go Ducks! Boo Dodos!

The always admirable and high minded Charlie Sheen declared that Phil’s GQ comments roughly quoting 1st Corinthians are,
“..horrendously and mendaciously unforgivable.”

Shortly thereafter Mr.Sheen demanded another toke on his crack pipe and directed a well paid ‘Ho to service him.

**Phil: I’ve never seen your show, but you’ve jumped 100-points in my book. GO, QUACK-QUACKS!!**

Duck gear will become the wearable merchandise of dissent, and people will wear it with pride because it now makes a statement that is socially acceptable and loud, clear. And mainstream.

Cracker Barrel climbdown is a huge victory over the Gay lobby and their power of intimidation, and probably one of the last such efforts of businesses to be politically correct that we will ever see.

The spell of pandering to thuggish bigots has been broken, people are no longer afraid and it’s now cool to be a dissenter.

It also goes a long way towards freeing gay people from the hateful activists/extortionists that hijacked their cause.

And it will have wider effects too, the PC brigade has lost it’s first skirmish in their upcoming Waterloo, the fear has gone, the way to win has been demonstrated, and many other victories will follow from that.

This is the equivalent of the East German wall coming down, after the first few bricks went, the duck was cooked.

    AMEN!

    RE: “It also goes a long way towards freeing gay people from the hateful activists/extortionists that hijacked their cause.”

    Many GLBT people who come out of the “closet” quickly find the “gay community” (one huge oxymoron) is shoving them into another gay community closet of bigotry, hate, shame and suffering – all inflicted by the “gay community.”
