The "Dukes of Hazzard" might've just been some good ole' boys never meanin' no harm -- or so said the theme song -- but their famous set of wheels are a whole different story altogether.
The General Lee, widely regarded as a character in and of itself throughout the series, is about to become a thing of the past thanks to its controversial roof insignia -- the Confederate Flag.
Per Vulture, Warner Bros.' Consumer Products division has now joined the legions of commercial brands stepping away from the much-fussed symbol, and will stop licensing the rights to make toy cars of the General Lee with the flag adorning its roof, the way it had appeared on the show.
Apparently, the studio only had one licensee still developing replica toys with the "stars and bars" -- a company based out of Indiana which die-cast and sold the model cars.
Warner Bros.' decision follows a rapid series of corporate pullbacks from Confederate Flag-adorned merchandise, including Etsy, Amazon, Walmart and eBay, which began after South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley announced on Monday (June 21) that the Confederate Flag would be removed from the state's Capitol Grounds in light of the tragic Charleston Shooting which rocked the nation last week.
