 In light of recent controversy over the Confederate flag, many major retailers - such as Amazon, Target, Walmart, and others - have pulled any merchandise associated or affiliated with the flag.  Now, it appears TV Land is also pulling reruns of the classic Dukes of Hazzard TV show due to the prominent adornment of the flag on their prized ride, the General Lee.



From the A.V. Club:

In the latest case of " I don’t think you understand the real problem,” TV Land has stopped airing its twice-daily reruns of The Dukes Of Hazzard in light of the recent controversy surrounding the Confederate flag. Yes, the flag is still flying down in South Carolina, but third-shift workers who want to watch a little "hicksploitation” in the afternoon are out of luck…

Everyone seems to have an opinion on whether the stars and bars should still fly in the South. Even the actor who portrayed "Cooter” on Dukes offered his in an all-caps rant on Facebook that included the phrase, "And we know that in Hazzard County there was never any racism.” And if "Cooter” says it, then it must be true. Perhaps the Warner Bros. could hire the team over at ILM to digitally alter the roof of the General Lee for future reruns?
