Cracker Barrel restaurants and shops reversed their decision to pull “Duck Dynasty” products from their businesses less than two days after they took a stance against Phil Robertson’s anti-gay remarks and controversial comment about African-Americans, according to ABC News on Sunday.

The Southern country store and restaurant took to Facebook on Sunday morning to respond to the negative responses received after customers expressed support for Roberson, the patriarch of “Duck Dynasty” – the A&E popular cable television program.

Cracker Barrel acknowledged that when they made the decision to remove and evaluate certain Duck Dynasty items, they offended many of their local customers. Their statement said their intent was to avoid offending – but, they claim, that is what they have done. They concluded that their customers told them they were wrong – and, they say, they listened.

Cracker Barrel was the first major retailer that asserted a stance against Robertson since the scandal broke early last week. Robertson, 67, has been removed from “Duck Dynasty” – the television program – since his anti-gay and controversial statements about African-Americans were made public. He made the publicized comments in an interview with GQ magazine.
