About

Cracker Barrel Has Fallen is an online catchphrase repeated in mockery of a 2023 tweet by the Texas Family Project bemoaning the brand "going woke" by contributing to an LGBTQ Pride Month event (not to be confused with a 2022 controversy when they were accused of "going woke" for introducing plant-based burgers). The phrase's overdramatic tone was widely mocked on social media in June of 2023.

Origin

On June 8th, 2023, the Texas Family Project[1] (@FamilyProjectTX) posted a tweet bemoaning that restaurant chain Cracker Barrel had participated in a Pride Month event, writing, "We take no pleasure in reporting that @CrackerBarrel has fallen. A once family friendly establishment has caved to the mob." The tweet was referencing Cracker Barrel catering a 2023 Pride Month event in Nashville, Tennessee.[2] It gained over 600 retweets, 5,000 quote-tweets, and 2,400 likes in one day (shown below).

Ben White @speedofwhite My Dearest Gertrude, It is with great sadness that I write to inform you that Cracker Barrel has fallen. This may be my last communication as the enemy advances unabated. Pride month is young still and we have not the fire power nor the rations to weather the drag queens assault.
