First the Cosby statue was pulled from Disney Hollywood Studios earlier this week, and now a Confederate flag has been pulled from the American Adventure attraction at Epcot.

The attraction located in the American Adventure Pavilion at Epcot features some 40 flags that were displayed throughout our country’s history.



The flag that was pulled from the attraction was the third version of the Confederate flag, pictured above, which made its debut on March 4th,1865, a short time before the collapse of the Confederacy.

The Confederate flag has undergone scrutiny since a shooting that killed 9 people last month in a black church in Charleston, S.C.

Do you think Disney was right for removing the flag?
