reports that the happiest place on Earth got a bit happier after removing the flag from the entrance of The American Adventure theater.
The flag taken down was the last official flag of the Confederate States of America, which is actually white with a red stripe on one end and a small version of the popularized flag on the other side.
The removal comes after Tuesday's banishment of another embarrassing Disney artifact: a Bill Cosby bust. The bust was removed from Hollywood Studios after the Associated Press revealed Monday that Cosby had said in a 2005 deposition that he obtained Quaaludes to give to women before he had sex with them.
We reached out to Disney for a comment about the removal of the flag, but have not received one.
In even more Confederate flag news to saturate your day, Walt Disney World joined other companies who have distanced themselves from the flag and removed a version of it at Epcot Wednesday.
