The Detroit Red Wings have denounced an alt-right political group currently using the team’s logo and are exploring “every possible legal option.”
The Michigan-based group, which calls itself the Detroit Right Wings, has co-opted the hockey club’s famous “Winged Wheel”, and is one of several organizations to make the trip to Charlottesville, Va., for a white nationalist rally, dubbed “Unite The Right”.
Thousands have conglomerated in a display Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer called a “cowardly parade of hatred, bigotry, racism, and intolerance march down the lawns of the architect of our Bill of Rights.”
