Red Wings denounce use of logo at white nationalist rally

The Red Wings released a statement Saturday afternoon saying they "vehemently disagree" with the use of their logo being used by right-wing marchers at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Their responses may include pursuing legal action regarding "the disturbing demonstration".

There is a Michigan-based white nationalist group called the Detroit Right Wings that uses a logo almost identical to that of the Red Wings.

Colorful Balloons was released early this year through a separate Chinese company, according to the New York Times . The company is registered in Beijing and with no trace of affiliation with USA based Facebook.

The group has been marching with the Red Wings logo and displays it on their YouTube channel, which has a total of 16 subscribers. The team adds that it believes hockey is for everyone and celebrates the diversity of its fan base and the country. The group posted on its Twitter account that members had arrived in Charlottesville, the home of the University of Virginia and about 100 miles from Washington. The protesters are incensed over the removal of a statue of Confederate general Robert E. Lee.

On Saturday, fights erupted and a few people were injured after a white supremacists group and counter protesters clashed in Charlottesville, Virginia, forcing local police and Gov. Terry McAuliffe to declare a state of emergency.
