Cracker Barrel Reverses “Duck Dynasty” Decision
(CNN) Cracker Barrel restaurant executives admit they made a mistake in pulling some “Duck Dynasty” merchandise from store shelves.
The restaurant made the decision on Saturday. A portion of the merchandise that could be seen as offensive was removed.
On Sunday, there was a change of plans after Cracker Barrel received thousands of complaints on its Facebook page. The items were returned to the restaurant stores.
The controversy surrounds A & E’s decision to suspend Phil Robertson, one of the show’s stars, after he made remarks about homosexuality in an interview with GQ magazine.
It is not clear if Robertson will return to the show.
He is featured in some episodes that have already been shot. They will begin airing on the network in January.
The Robertson family has released a statement supporting the family patriarch.
