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

0:34 | NHL         Nashville Predators Sign Ryan Johansen to 8-Year $64 Million Contract

Some of the protesters were seen carrying signs that appeared to have the Red Wings' logo on them.

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.

"The Detroit Red Wings vehemently disagree with and are not associated in any way with the event taking place today in Charlottesville, Va.", the statement read. There have been fist-fights and screaming matches going on during the protest, which has been called a "Unite the Right" rally.


The Red Wings had earlier issued a statement via Twitter threatening legal action and denouncing the "misuse of our logo in this disturbing demonstration". 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.

A group that goes by the "Detroit Right Wings" uses a red and right wing logo that is similar to the hockey team's logo.

The group has been marching with the Red Wings logo and displays it on their YouTube channel, which has a total of 16 subscribers.
