The General Lee To Be Stripped Of Its Rebel Flag?
Say WHAAAAT? The rumor is that Warner Brothers is going to stop using the Confederate Flag on the General Lee, in the new Dukes of Hazzard movie. Warner Brothers apparently has also decided that no more toys can be produced using the iconic flag on the car. What’s next, you gonna tell me Santa Claus ain’t real?
Dukes of Hazzard fans are obviously upset, and have started a Facebook petition.
Ben Jones, who played Cooter on the series, writes on Facebook that “knuckleheads” who don’t understand the South are behind what he calls a case of “boneheaded reverse discrimination.”
So, what do YOU think? Is it a horrible thing to strip the General Lee of it’s flag, or is it time to ditch it and move forward?
