Cracker Barrel goes squishy. Pulls "offensive" Duck Dynasty merchandise

I haven't eaten at Cracker Barrel since I was served a plate of chicken livers that oozed blood. I had intended to let that matter pass until today when the restaurant chain announced that it would continue to sell Duck Dynasty but it had removed a few items that might be offensive. That announcement evoked the same visceral reaction. Their Face Book post reads;
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.
That seems to have gone over like a pregnant pole vaulter.
"After you are done removing the selected products, go ahead and remove a bunch of tables and won't be needing them any more." wrote one commenter.
"Well while you are evaluating this "Problem" I will be eating across the street..... I stand on the Bible, along with the Robertson family." posted another.
What would Cracker Barrel find offensive? One assumes they mean items that have Phil Robertson's likeness on them.
To hell with them. If I have to eat every meal out at Cheeseburger in Paradise and buy all my clothes from Rural King I will not patronize any business that kowtows to GLAAD or advertises on A&E.
