In what has become either the biggest egg in the face or the biggest social media whisper campaign success ever, Cracker Barrel Old Country Store appears to be at the center of a hilarious (sorry, not sorry) trolling campaign in honor of a former employee who, at this time, we’ll refer to as Brad’s wife. According to social media posts and a story picked up by Inquisitr, Brad’s wife was fired from a Cracker Barrel store after 11 years of service. This wasn’t the worst part of the story, however. Online sources indicate she was let go on the day of Brad’s birthday, and without explanation, and that left Brad wanting answers. Enter social media.

In a post on the Cracker Barrel corporate Facebook page, Michelle Bowmen Neuhauser responded to a number of #justiceforbradswife posters identifying that “Bradley Reid Byrd’s wife, Nanette, worked at the Corydon, Indiana Cracker Barrel for 11 years, was fired by a district manager named Gwen Alexander. Reason given was, ‘She wasn’t working out.’ She’s an older woman whom coworkers/customers say was hardworking, averaged 50-60 hrs a week. Since CB wouldn’t give Brad and Nanette an answer, he posted his question on their FB page, and #bradswife took off from there.”

Dating back as far as December 19, 2016 (and frankly, we stopped looking after that), the Cracker Barrel Old Country Store corporate Facebook account has had a number of comments regarding the firing of “Brad’s wife”, ranging from a little absurd to truly inspired comedy. Without comment from the company on any of the postings, the effect appeared to have snowballed, recently leading to YouTube comedian Amiri King posting about the subject on his Facebook account. If it snowballed before this, it was now a veritable avalanche for Cracker Barrel!
