Chick-Phil-A Day: Duck Dynasty Fans Plan Day of Appreciation For Phil Robertson

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Diehard fans of Duck Dynasty are planning to display their loyalty by holding a day of appreciation for Phil Robertson at their local Chick-fil-A franchises.

According to the Chick-Phil-A Day Facebook page, Phil Robertson fans are encouraged to wear their "Duck Commander or camouflage gear" to lunch.

The January 21 event planned to "stand for free speech" and "sit for good food" has over 24,000 likes and 60,000 listed attendees since its announcement.

Robertson has been the target of a media firestorm since making comments on gays and gay sex in a GQ magazine interview earlier this month.

The scandal led to his "indefinite suspension" from A&E.

Despite the apparent appropriateness of the location, the Southern-based fast food chain is already working to distance itself from Chick-Phil-A Day.

Reps have adamantly stated that the upcoming day in honor of the Duck Dynasty patriarch is "in no way sponsored by or affiliated with Chick-fil-A."

Chick-fil-A entered the national debate on same-sex marriage in 2012 after CEO Dan Cathy said in an interview that he firmly believes in traditional marriage.

His remarks led to strong backlash and protests against the chain, followed by support from conservative backers who organized Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.

Former Arkansas governor and Fox News contributor Mike Huckabee was one prominent supporter of Chick-fil-A Day and Cathy’s stance on same sex marriage.

Former Alaska governor and Fox News contributor Sarah Palin was also a fan, and likely will attend Chick-Phil-A Day too, even though she has no clue what he even said.

Of course, in 2012, Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day was shortly followed by Same Sex Kiss Day, a nationwide "kiss-in" for gay and lesbian couples to protest the chain.

We know where Palin, Huckabee, Miley Cyrus and Cara Delevingne stand on the issue ... and that A&E is in the middle of a PR nightmare right now.

What about you? Where do you stand on Phil Robertson? Duck Dynasty? Chick-fil-A? Same-sex marriage? Anything? Hit up the comments below.

I support anyone's right to express their opinion. I just left Cick-fil-A with lunch thinking they were supporting my wishes as well. After reading this anti-support article and seeing that they are "distancing themselves" from this, I have to wonder....How much will it take from the public to keep falling for this foolery? I thought you supported us, but I guess not. I eat your food at least 3x weekly. Now that will stop. What religion do you defend?

We are NOT die hard Duck Dynasty fans. We are die hard Americans who believe that we should not be persecuted for the things we say or believe. They were his own beliefs and you don't have to agree with him, but gosh darn it, don't tell him he can't be on a show because you don't agree. Right or Wrong, what A&E did was wrong. I will be at Chick-Fil-A with my Duck COMMANDER shirt on NOT my Duck Dynasty shirt.

I believe in traditional marriage between a man and a woman and that everyone has the right to their opinion without any flack.

Phil Robertson was right in his thoughts and what he believe you can't fault a man for his personal belief . As long as he is not talking about killing , or harming gay people his thoughts and beliefs are his . I don't believe in the gay life style and I would never promot gay rights . God put us here as man and women no more and no less that's what we were born to be . I am tied of hearing some gay people say they where born that way that's a lie . When you say this your saying God made a mistake whith you and that also is not true . God gave us free will and you chose this path that your on . Man was not mint to be a women and women was not mint to be a man . And it is a sin to do so . I don't hate the people I hate the gay life style .
