VIDEO: Cracker Barrel Rockers Wrecked

Rocking chairs cracked at a local Cracker Barrel causes quite the uproar on social media.

The video was taken at Cracker Barrel in Evansville. It now has more than 100,000 views on Facebook.

Two people are seen on camera pulverizing Cracker Barrel's famous rocking chairs then tossing the scraps in the dumpster.

The restaurant does sell their chairs.

But, the video is creating conversation about what should be done with the rockers, like possibly finding a new home that isn't a dumpster.

As for the restaurant's side, the local store manager told us no comment.

However, the corporate communications team did give Eyewitness News this statement:

“As a home-away-from-home and respite on the road, we understand the trust our guests place in us to provide a safe environment for them and their families. We take that responsibility very seriously and one aspect of that is ensuring that our products, like the rockers that line our front porch, are safe and without damage. When we learned that two rockers at our Evansville, Indiana location were damaged, as part of company policy and routine operating protocols, we immediately discarded them to ensure the safety of our guests and others.” -Janella Escobar, Cracker Barrel's Director of Corporate Communications.
