Detroit Red Wings condemn use of logo in Charlottesville protest”

"The Red Wings believe that Hockey is for Everyone and we celebrate the great diversity of our fan base and our nation". As of Saturday afternoon, the group was using the altered Red Wings logo as its Twitter avatar.

A white nationalist group from MI that calls itself the Detroit Right Wings tweeted Friday night that members had arrived for the rally in Charlottesville.

The Detroit Red Wings were forced to release a statement dissociating themselves from a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., after a group of demonstrators were seen using the team's logo. It is not yet evident whether that group was in attendance in Charlottesville.

Virginia's governor has declared a state of emergency in response to a white nationalist rally that is expected to draw up to 6,000 people.

A right-wing blogger said he planned the "pro-white" rally to protest Charlottesville's decision to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee from a city park, according to The Associated Press.

The protests began Friday night when nationalists converged on the University of Virginia's campus and marched while carrying torches.
