Cracker Barrel Dumps (some) 'Dynasty Stuff

Sure, I've eaten at Cracker Barrel. Food is OK. Portions are HUGE and prices are slightly higher than average. I'd rather eat at a locally owned greasy spoon.

These Cracker Barrel restaurants have an attached store. As you wait to be seated, you can shop. Until today, they carried some Duck Dynasty merchandise. They decided to stop selling all or some of it. Reports differ. Here is the complete corporate statement from Cracker Barrel:

“Cracker Barrel’s mission is Pleasing People. We operate within the ideals of fairness, mutual respect and equal treatment of all people. These ideals are the core of our corporate culture. We continue to offer Duck Commander products in our stores. We removed selected products which we were concerned might offend some of our guests while we evaluate the situation. We continually evaluate the products we offer and will continue to do so.”

What specifically could be offensive today that was non offensive last week? It looks like da barrel is trying to play this one on both sides of the fence.

By the way, I NEVER tell people to boycott.  This is because I give you credit to know the right thing to do.
