Detroit Red Wings to white supremacist group: Stop using our logo

13 August 2017

Scores of white nationalists with torches marched, chanted racial slurs and attacked counter-protestors in Charlottesville, Va. last night. In some instances, the spokes in the wheel were altered to represent the Nazi SS logo.

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".

Among the white-power supporters is an anti-immigrant group called the Detroit Right Wings, which has co-opted a pretty familiar-looking logo.

In a statement, the NHL shared outrage with their Red Wings over the appropriation of the team logo, saying, "This specific use is directly contrary to the value of inclusiveness that our League prioritizes and champions".

This comes just hours after a security personnel was injured when militants attacked an army camp in Kupwara district of Kashmir. He further said, "Pakistan Army again initiated unprovoked firing on Indian Army posts in Krishna Ghati sector at around 5 pm".

Photos on social media showed members of the Detroit Right Wings holding crude rectangular shields, with "their" logo.

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

With a state of emergency declared in Virginia amid violent protests by white nationalists in Charlottesville, the Detroit Red Wings said Saturday that their logo, displayed on some protesters' placards, has no place at the "Unite the Right" rally.
