Red Wings Condemn Use of Logo at White Nationalist Rally

The Detroit Red Wings have released a statement condemning the use of their logo by white nationalists at a rally in Charlottesville.

The team said in a statement it "vehemently" disagrees with the rally and is in no way associated with it.

The Red Wings say they are "exploring every possible legal action as it pertains to the misuse of our logo in this disturbing demonstration".

On Saturday morning, several marchers were seen carrying the Detroit Red Wings logo, an incongruous symbol among the more blatant displays of Nazism. "The Red Wings believe that Hockey is for Everyone and we celebrate the great diversity of our fan base and our nation".

There is a Michigan-based white nationalist group called the Detroit Right Wings that uses a logo almost identical to that of the Red Wings.

Charlottesville has declared a local emergency due to the conflicts between the two groups.

As a result of the protests, which turned violent, the University of Virginia has canceled all of its on-campus events, including a scheduled Meet the Team football appearance.
