When we last left the Duke boys, they were mid-jump in what looked like an inescapable situation. Friends, let’s see how that turns out for ol’ Bo and Luke…
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.
According to TV Line, “this move follows a decision by Warner Bros. to cease anyDukes merchandising deals involving the Confederate flag.” The treasonous battle flag had been emblazoned on the roof of the Duke boys’ orange 1969 Dodge Charger, affectionately called the General Lee. But now that Warner Bros. has ceased licensing any Dukes merchandise involving the flag, models and toys of the famous muscle car are going to be hard to come by, even at your local Winn-Dixie.
