With the ongoing Flint water crisis, the Harlem Globetrotters announced on Friday they are removing the well-known "water bucket skit" from the team's show in Flint next week.

According to the Globetrotters, they are leaving the water bucket behind for the Jan. 25 show out of respect for Flint residents affected by the recent water crisis.

On top of that, the team is also donating 90 tickets to Joy Tabernacle Church to distribute the tickets to volunteers and local families in need of a smile.

The game begins at 7 p.m. Monday at the Dort Federal Event Center in Flint.
