White nationalist demonstrators hold their ground as they clash with counter demonstrators in Lee Park in Charlottesville, Va., Saturday, Aug. 12, 2017. Fights broke out Friday night when hundreds of white nationalists marched through the UVA campus carrying torches. "The Red Wings believe that Hockey is for Everyone and we celebrate the great diversity of our fan base and our nation". At least one person was arrested.

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

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.

Katie Strang of the Athletic Detroit reports that NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly told her the league is "offended and outraged" by this and will explore legal actions to "address offensive and unauthorized" use of property. "We will take immediate and all necessary steps to insure the use is discontinued as promptly as possible, and will vigorously pursue other remedies, as appropriate".

Among the white-power supporters is an anti-immigrant group called the Detroit Right Wings, which has co-opted a pretty familiar-looking logo. The group tweeted that members of their group were in Charlottesville.
