Why Is Warner Bros Banning The General Lee?

General Lee
The General Lee is no more. Well, kinda.

According to Vulture, the recent push to remove images of the Confederate flag has had an unintended casualty: The Dukes of Hazzard's iconic Dodge Charger. The consumer licensing division of Warner Bros has announced they will no longer put out any products sporting the Confederate flag, and that includes the General Lee, which famously had the stars and bars printed on the top of the car.

Strangely, Warner Bros is nixing some of its General Lee merchandise outright, while simply editing out the flag on others. General Lee t-shirts, apparently, wil...

Spotlight On Hillbilly Celebrities

Hillbilly celebs
A hillbilly celeb is like a young NBA player who came from nothing. Before they were popular they would eat at McDonald's, belch and swear in public, and do whatever they wanted. But now they live in a much different culture.

There are plenty of celebrities that came from nothing and turned into something. But what makes a hillbilly celeb different is the typically uneducated unsophisticated behavior that everyone enjoys watching.

Britney Spears and sister Jamie Lynn are perfect examples of hillbilly celebs. They are from the small town of Kentwood, Louisiana, and before they were mu...

Three Best & Worst TV Shows Turned Into Big-Screen Films

The Dukes of Hazzard
With so many long-running series coming to an end lately, it hasn't taken long for message boards and fansites to buzz with ideas for big-screen reunions. There are a ton of television shows already green lit and in various stages of development (The A-Team, Dallas, and I Dream of Jeannie to name a few).
