Now, the memorable 1969 red-orange Dodge Charger known as the “General Lee” from the CBS program “The Dukes of Hazzard” is getting the boot. The show ran from 1979 to 1985 and revolved around two cousins, Bo and Luke Duke of Hazzard County, Georgia and their car.

The company follows in the footsteps of retailers Amazon, Sears, eBay, and Walmart, all of whom elected to ban sales of the Confederate flag and its image this week after the racially motivated murder of 9 people in Charleston, S.C.

Warner Bros. has not said if it will continue to sell versions of the car with the flag removed, and if so, whether the company will need to change the General Lee’s name.
