"Dukes of Hazzard" fans don't have anything to be upset about after all.
A Warner Brothers Consumer Products spokesperson says they "were not, and are not planning to change the design of the General Lee on merchandise."
Reports on the Internet had claimed that Warner planned to remove the Confederate Flag from the roof of toy versons of the General Lee. Fans started an online petition asking Warner to change its mind. And Ben Jones, who played Cooter on the show, issued a statement opposing the plan. But the spokesperson says the reports are "inaccurate."
