Phil Robertson Fans Planning to Show Support by Eating at Chick-fil-A

Some fans of Phil Robertson plan to show their support for the embattled Duck Dynasty patriarch by eating at Chick-fil-A on January 21. They’re calling their campaign “National Chick-PHIL-A Day,” though the restaurant chain says it is not involved.

What’s the connection? As you know, Robertson has caused a stir with anti-gay comments he recently made to GQ magazine. Chick-fil-A faced a similar controversy last year, when its owner voiced his opposition to same-sex marriage.

Facebook page for the campaign calls on supporters to, “Join the movement to support Chick-fil-a and Phil Robertson by wearing cameo/Duck Commander gear to eat at a Chick-fil-a on January 21, 2014.” It also declares, “Stand For Free Speech. Sit For Good Food.”

So far, more than 42 thousand people have committed to the cause.

The Facebook page notes the campaign is not affiliated with Chick-fil-A. Nevertheless, the chain tellsTMZ it is not a sponsor of the campaign, which it says was created by an “independent group.”

Aside from the fallout from Robertson’s GQ interview, his family’s business, Duck Commander, has an unrelated issue to deal with. TMZ reports Duck Commander has been sued by a winery called Duckhorn Wine Company. The California-based plaintiff claims consumers are confusing its brand with the Duck Commander wine the Robertsons sell through Walmart, which is much cheaper, because they both have “duck” in their name.
