Looks like them Duke boys are in a heap of trouble! It’s been reported that TV Land has dropped The Dukes of Hazzard from its schedule completely!
The network had previously been airing the iconic series — which starred John Schneider, Tom Wopat, and Catherine Bach as mischievous cousins in Hazzard County, Georgia — twice a day.
While TV Land hasn’t revealed why it decided to drop the show from its broadcast, we’re pretty sure the choice has something to do with the boys’ getaway car, the iconic General Lee — which has a Confederate flag noticeably displayed on its roof!
The Confederate flag has been the subject of extreme controversy after last month’s racially motivated shootings that took place at a Charleston, South Carolina church.
TV Land’s move isn’t surprising — huge retailers like Walmart and Amazon recently announced that they would stop selling all merchandise related to the Confederate flag.
Is TV Land being overly sensitive or did they make the right decision to drop the program? SOUND OFF in the comments!
