Duck Dynasty Star's comments now affecting some of their business relationships

The fallout from Phil's controversial comments continues.
The fallout from Phil's controversial comments continues.

Several companies are continuing to stand by Phil and Duck Commander's side.  Skyjacker Suspensions has released a statement on their website showing their continued support.

"Proud to be standing with Duck Commander and Phil Robertson "The Duck Commander". Two Christian companies standing on principles. This goes beyond the Constitution...to the Creator. We are a Christian-based company and actively share our faith so standing with Phil Robertson is an easy choice for us. You can email us with your support at support@skyjacker.com"

Our sister station KARD FOX 14/KTVE NBC 10 in West Monroe, Louisiana is reporting that "the West Monroe-West Ouachita Chamber of Commerce is expressing its support to Phil Robertson and the Robertson family following A&E's decision to suspend Robertson."  You can view the Chamber's comments here.

Under Armour has announced that while they do not agree with Phil's recent statements, they have no plans on severing their ties with the Duck Commander/Buck Commander brand.  The Baltimore Sun has more on this story.

Despite the tremendous support that the Duck Commander brand has seen the past few days, other companies are deciding to remove their products from their shelves.

Cracker Barrel released the following statement yesterday on their facebook page, "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."

Zynga, an entertainment app developer, has received a ton of backlash on their Hit It Rich! game forum for their recent removal of the promotional graphics teasing the new Duck Dynasty game.  One of their employee's made the following comment on the community boards, "Our slots that are based on licensed properties (movies, TV shows, comic books) can sometimes be delayed because the people who own the rights get to approve the slots we've created. Sometimes this can take longer, and we have to switch up our schedule. We've been anxious for both Ted and Duck Dynasty to be released and as soon as we can release them, we will!  Thanks for your understanding."
