Dukes of Hazzard Gets Dropped From TVLand, John Schneider Cries For His Residuals


- In this recent post, John Schneider - known as Superman's Dead 2nd Daddy and Tyler Perry White Guy Villain complained about the movement against the Confederate flag since the characters in Dukes of Hazzard used it in a good ol' boy way and that cancels out all those racist bigots apparently.

- Schneider is still showing his ass by tweeting the following yesterday:

While Schneider says he's trying to defend the show, not the flag - he obviously thinks it matters or they could just use the same green screen tech they use to CGI in brand names into old shows to photoshop out the flag and end the controversy.
