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:

On one hand, we're very glad to hear that any LGBT visiting/competing/covering the Sochi winter Olympics will be safe from Russia's archaic (yet, rather new) anti-gay laws….
But, on the other hand, this isn't stopping the millions of LGBT citizens in the country from being wrongly terrorized by their own homeland any other time when the Olympics AREN'T there!
Which, unfortunately, is most of the time.
Here's what Vladimir Putin said specifically, though, in an attempt to put out the fire around his nation's upcoming Olympics:

Earlier, we listed all the ways that Cher was a badass and included one reason was the fact that she turned down an opportunity to be an ambassador and perform during the 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia!
We all know that the passion behind that was because of Russia's backwards anti-gay laws, too! And now, know we know more about why she made her decision.
Here's what she said about the decision to decline:

We had a feeling that Johnny Weir wouldn't be competing in the Sochi Olympics, despite some hints as to a possible bid — but we thought if he DIDN'T go, it would be more because of Russia's archaic and offensive anti-gay laws!
Instead, the two-time Olympian did not register for the qualifiers for the national championships, as the deadline to register was Sept. 1.
Johnny hasn't competed since withdrawing from Rostelecom Cup last year, and we all know he finished sixth at the Vancouver Olympics. We bring this up because only those who placed in the top five at last year's nationals or who won medals at the most recent Olympics or world championships are eligible to skip the qualifiers to go to the next games… which means that Johnny is officially not on the team.

Sophia Bush threw some serious shade at the Kremlin, and we loved it!
Sophia took to Twitter on Monday calling for an all out boycott of Russia, and the upcoming Winter Olympics as a response to the punitive anti-gay laws currently in place, as well as a recently documented incident of intolerance, where five Russian men beat up a trans woman.
Ch-ch-check out her moving and strongly worded tweets…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
