Cracker Barrel restaurants have reversed their decision of two days ago to stop selling some items associated with "Duck Dynasty."

The restaurants, which feature country-style meals and gift shops, released a statement via Facebook on Friday saying that some Duck Commander items would not be sold in the store after "Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson made statements to GQ magazine that homosexuality is a sin.

The restaurant was flooded with messages threatening a boycott if the decision wasn't reversed. On Sunday, it was.

"When we made the decision to remove and evaluate certain Duck Dynasty items, we offended many of our loyal customers. Our intent was to avoid offending, but that’s just what we've done," Cracker Barrel posted to Facebook.

"You told us we made a mistake. And, you weren't shy about it. You wrote, you called and you took to social media to express your thoughts and feelings. You flat out told us we were wrong. We listened."

The statement said all "Duck Dynasty" items are being returned to the shelves.

"We respect all individuals right to express their beliefs. We certainly did not mean to have anyone think different," the statement said.
