Bubba Watson: Time to paint over Confederate flag on General Lee


The famous “General Lee” car used in the TV show “Dukes of Hazzard” will be getting a long overdue roof makeover.

In line with the wave of reconsideration about the use of the Confederate flag after the tragic shooting in Charleston, South Carolina, the car’s owner, two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson says that he’ll painting an American flag over the current one.

Per the Pensacola New Journal, Watson, a Florida native who attended the University of Georgia, paid $110,000 for the General Lee at an auction in 2012. In January, he got the car autographed by John Schneider, the actor who played Bo Duke.
