TV Land says it is ending reruns of the “Dukes of Hazzard.” Actor Ben Jones says nothing brought people together more than the show.
Jones played “Cooter” on the show. He tells Fox News’ “Fox and Friends” that kids of all races love the show and we have to stop this “cultural cleansing.” TV Land declined to give a reason for why the show was pulled from their line-up. The move comes amid controversy over the Confederate flag which appears on the roof of the show’s signature “General Lee” hot rod. Fans of the program quickly took to social media to vent their frustration
Ben Jones has made appearances in ENC a number of times as his wife’s family is from Washington, NC.
