Well, at least they tried… for a day.
Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson said some offensive bullshizz about the LGBT community and pre-civil rights black people, so Cracker Barrel restaurants went ahead and did the right thing by banning Phil's merchandise because they were concerned about "equal treatment of all people" and a little thing called "mutual respect."
That's when the company got blasted by customers who share in Phil's de-humanizing ideals…. So much that Cracker Barrel chickened out on doing the right thing and literally said this:
We're pretty sure PETA has always wanted Duck Dynasty off the air, mostly because of the fact they made their millions making duck calls that have tricked untold amounts of ducks into their own slaughter. This whole anti-gay and racism thing just happens to be the perfect opportunity for PETA to go on the offensive!
Here's what they said about Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ:
Did you hear the one about the missing bath soap? Cops say it was the work of a… robber ducky!
LOLz, this Duck Dynasty debate is a super intense one and we're just trying to lighten the mood!
Last night, A&E suspended one of its top reality stars for racially insensitive and extremely homophobic quotes he gave to GQ, but now some of his staunchest supports are
cracking quacking the eff up about it!
Over 400k Facebook petitioners and over 40k Change.org petitioners are pissed off by the network's decision to force Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson to, uhhh, fly south for the foreseeable future and they've come to his defense!!
Apparently his supporters — including Sarah Palin — woke up at the
crack quack of dawn this morning, read the news, and were outraged because
Oh COME ON!!
We are SO confused as to how anyone could believe anything like this, even one of the beloved (by many, but not all) guys on Duck Dynasty!
First, Phil Robertson was crystal clear to GQ on how he felt about homosexuality and the AMAZING people in that community, and who support that community (and how it's sinful and super wrong)… and now he's saying he's pretty sure black people were happy and just fine before the civil rights movement!!
We aren't joking. Seriously. Here's what he said about pre-civil-rights-era Louisiana:
This guy has some SERIOUS explaining to do!
The boys of Duck Dynasty recently did an interview with GQ that was published online, and a few comments by Phil Robertson are rubbing people the wrong way!
Ha! That's ridiculous!! We can't believe that just happened!
This guy is lucky he didn't lose a finger!
A sea lion just popped up outta nowhere and stole that guy's fish!!
They were filming a reality show, Chef on the Water, for the Mexico travel channel when the theft went down.
We bet that even though they lost that fish, it'll make for one hell of a TV storyline!
Check out the video (above) to see one sneaky sea lion steal himself a meal!
