Last week, fans expressed their disappointment in the show for continuing to sell merchandise of the former American Pickers star on their online gift shop.
The backlash came after the Twitter account for the show posted a tweet to promote their holiday items.
One follower said: “I think it’s time to boycott American Pickers. It really bother me they kicked Frank to the curb.
“With friends like that who needs enemies. Just makes me sick.”
Still another bluntly asked if Frank was still cashing in from his former employer: “Hope you’re still paying the bearded charmer. He deserves it.”
Frank, 56, last appeared on the popular show during a March 2020 episode. His firing was seemingly due to an ongoing feud with costar Mike Wolfe.

In an exclusive interview with The Sun, Frank revealed he is feuding with Mike, 57, who continues to appear on the History Channel show.
Frank said: “I haven’t talked to Mike in two years. He knew my back was messed up, but he didn’t call me up and ask how I was doing. That’s just how it is.
“The show is tilted towards him 1,000 percent. I can’t even bend that far down to show you how much.
“That’s fine. It’s like you’ve got Aerosmith and there’s Steven Tyler and he’s the front man. I found my spot, I’m second and he’s number one on the show. That’s no problem with me, maybe he does have a problem.”
Frank also admitted it would be “hard” to put the show on after not talking to somebody for so many years..
He explained: “You couldn’t just stick two people in a van and get the chemistry you get from me and Mike. We’ve known each other for about 40 years. We can finish each other’s sentences.
“When everybody is getting along and there’s no drama, me and him are very good together.”
The collector added: “I’m just trying to get through life like everybody else and be as happy as I possibly can. Life is what you put into it. If you don’t put much into it you don’t get a lot out of it.”
Frank doesn’t seem to have held ties with co-star Danielle Colby either as both her and Mike failed to recognize their ex-colleague’s 56th birthday last week.
Instead, Danielle, 45, shared a nearly naked photo of herself on Instagram wearing nothing but a teal robe covering her breasts to promote a makeup line.
Mike also didn’t acknowledge his former partner’s special day on social media, as he hasn’t posted anything to his page since announcing his new project on October 1.
Despite the diss, Frank seems to be doing fine since leaving the network.
The Sun revealed the first pictures of Frank since he last appeared on the show back in July showing off the results of his healthier lifestyle.
The star lost 65-pounds and has been sober from alcohol after he entered rehab for alcohol addiction in Iowa for 77 days.
“I’m feeling really good. Life is good and I’d like to get back into the swing of things. I wish I had done it five years ago, I would have been a different person,” Frank confessed.
“It was the best thing for me and I wish I had done it sooner or I wouldn’t be in the position that I am right now.”
Frank has been open about wanting to return to American Pickers after his hiatus, as he said: “I’d still like to get back to my job, I miss my friends and my people and being on the road and meeting all those different characters.”
