Red Wings explore legal action over logo used at Virginia white rally

Red Wings explore legal action over logo used at Virginia white rally

The Detroit Red Wings were quick to condemn the use of their logo in such a disturbing and hateful manner.

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

"We are exploring every possible legal action as it pertains to the misuse of our logo during the demonstration", Red Wings Director of Public Relations Todd Beam told For The Win. If you saw pictures or videos from Charlottesville, you may have seen the Red Wings' logo. "The Red Wings believe that Hockey is for Everyone and we celebrate the great diversity of our fan base and our nation".

On Saturday morning, several marchers were seen carrying the Detroit Red Wings logo, an incongruous symbol among the more blatant displays of Nazism. It is not yet evident whether that group was in attendance in Charlottesville. The rally was organized to protest the college town's decision to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee from a city park.

Scores of white nationalists with torches marched, chanted racial slurs and attacked counter-protestors in Charlottesville, Va. last night.
