Amazon considers removing ‘Dukes of Hazzard’ from its streaming library over Confederate flag: report [Video]

Amazon is reportedly considering removing the immensely popular 1970s series “The Dukes of Hazzard” from its streaming library as it reviews its content offerings in the wake of racial tensions and protests happening throughout the U.S.

The TV series ran on CBS for seven seasons from 1979 until 1985. It follows the adventures of Bo and Luke Duke, who create mischief in their fictional small town of Hazzard County, Ga. The show has been criticized over the years, specifically for the boys’ well-known car, The General Lee, which is emblazoned with a confederate flag on the roof.

As a result, Bloomberg reports that the popular streaming service is thinking about removing it so as not to court any controversy with the ongoing movement happening throughout the U.S. Amazon currently offers “The Dukes of Hazzard” both for free on its ad-supported streaming service, IMDB TV, as well as for sale on the Amazon store.
