Detroit Red Wings Threaten Legal Action Against White Nationalist Rally

Detroit Red Wings to white supremacists Stop using our logo

The Red Wings released a statement Saturday afternoon saying they "vehemently disagree" with the use of their logo being used by right-wing marchers at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Over the weekend, various white supremacy groups marched on the grounds of the University of Virginia in Charlottesville.

The Red Wings had earlier issued a statement via Twitter threatening legal action and denouncing the "misuse of our logo in this disturbing demonstration". That thing inside the wheel is an SS pattern.

USA Today reported that a MI white supremacist group called the Detroit Right Wings uses a slight variation on the team's logo - a red and white auto tire with two bird wings attached. The team adds that it believes hockey is for everyone and celebrates the diversity of its fan base and the country.

One person died and 19 were injured after a vehicle plowed through a crowd Saturday at the rally.

Things have gotten truly ugly in Charlottesville, Virginia, where white nationalists are clashing with counter-protesters and police ahead of a rally that was scheduled to begin at noon Saturday.
