No- Time to send that Racist symbol to a museum.
It was an unbelievably silly decision made for an incredibly ludicrous reason.
The show was never remotely about racism.

advise viewers at the beginning of [any] show if it may be offensive for any number of reasons. this is done in a lot of cases D for drugs, S for sex, L for language, A for adult themes
then the viewer can choose if they want to see the show
it was before my time but i've sen a number of episodes, even if you think the flag is offensive, i don't see how that overrides the entire rest of the show and warrants a total removal of it from the network
its a slippery slope
if we are going to go back and pull all shows ever made that could possibly offend someone, then there's not going to be anything left on tv
how many people were still even watching it on tv land?
if it offends you, just don't go to the tv land channel, or just don't watch this particular show. and yes, tv land is a company and they are of course well within their rights to pull the show if they thought they were going to take a PR hit.
just the mindset of "that offends me - it should be off the air" instead of "that offends me - i won't watch that show" that is concerning to me
Definitely stupid. The show had nothing to do with the Confederacy.
The fact that it was about two criminals selling moonshine and driving dangerously never seemed to bother anyone either.
