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:
"You told us we made a mistake and you weren't shy about it … you flat out told us we were wrong. We apologize for offending you."
The offensive thing that happened are Phil's comments! How can you lose sight of that after one day?? We feel like we live in the Twilight Zone here!
So basically instead of taking a stand against ignorance and supporting gays' harmless way of life, they're more worried about offending people who pay them money for things. Business is business but this was so shady and cowardly!
P.S. — Catch up on the rest of what we know about this mess HERE!
