General Lee, the famous "The Dukes of Hazzard" car, arguably became a symbol of the South –– but now it's losing one of its distinctly Southern attributes.
Professional golfer Bubba Watson announced via Twitter on Thursday that he plans to paint over the car's Confederate flag, and replace it with an American one.
He tweeted, "All men ARE created equal, I believe that so I will be painting the American flag over the roof of the General Lee #USA." Watson reportedly bought the car at auction in 2012 for $110,000.
