Cracker Barrel has reversed its decision to pull Duck Dynasty products off its shelves, saying customers called the restaurant chain out on its "mistake."

The U.S. chain, which also sells apparel, toys and collectables, said in a statement Sunday it initially removed the products because of concern they might offend loyal customers after one of the main characters on the show called homosexuality a sin.

"You told us we made a mistake," the statement on Cracker Barrel's Facebook page said. "You flat out told us we were wrong. We listened."

The statement added, "We respect all individuals (sic) right to express their beliefs."

Phil Robertson was suspended from the popular A&E show on Thursday after he told GQ magazine homosexuality is a sin and is similar to bestiality and being promiscuous.

The Human Rights Campaign and National Association for the Advancement of Coloured People (NAACP) also called for Robertson to apologize for racist comments in the same interview.
