Dukes of Hazzard Toy Car Axed Amid Confederate Flag Controversy

The national debate over the continued use of the Confederate flag in the wake of the deadly church shooting in Charleston, South Carolina, has reached The Dukes of Hazzard and the show’s famed car.

Warner Bros.’ consumer division says it will stop licensing toy cars and models featuring the General Lee with the controversial flag on its roof.

“Warner Bros. Consumer Products has one licensee producing die-cast replicas and vehicle model kits featuring the General Lee with the confederate flag on its roof — as it was seen in the TV series,” a spokesperson said in a statement to EW. “We have elected to cease the licensing of these product categories.”

The move comes after a number of other retailers, including Walmart, Amazon and eBay, said they’d stop selling Confederate flag merchandise. Political leaders in South Carolina also announced a push in recent days to have the flag removed from the grounds of the state capitol.

This isn’t the first time the Dukes’ mode of transportation has been at the heart of a controversy. Back in 2012, after it was rumored that the Confederate flag would be removed from the General Lee, Warner Bros. Consumer Products released a statement saying the reports were false.

“We were not and are not planning to change design of the General Lee on merchandise,” said Warner Bros. Consumer Products to the New York Times. “All reports to the contrary have been inaccurate to this point.”

General Lee models featuring the Confederate flag are still available on eBay and Amazon.

Vulture was first to report the news.
