  • Detroit Red Wings condemn use of logo by white nationalists at Charlottesville rally

The Red Wings released a statement after members of one of the right-wing groups that descended upon Charlottesville this weekend were seen carrying white shields with the Red Wings logo on the front.

The Detroit Red Wings are threatening legal action against those who used their logo at a "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Va. on Friday night.

How did this happen?

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

"The Red Wings believe that hockey is for everyone and we celebrate the great diversity of our fan base and our nation".

The logo has been altered slightly in the center, and the people holding the signs belong to a group from MI called "The Detroit Right Wings".

The Red Wings are exploring legal options.

. This specific use is directly contrary to the value of inclusiveness that our League prioritizes and champions. The GoFundMe raising resulted in only $328 from four total donations.

On Saturday, a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia turned violent as protesters and counter protesters clashed, causing the state's governor to declare a state of emergency. One person died and 19 were hurt when a vehicle was driven intentionally into a throng of anti-racism demonstrators.
