Detroit Red Wings Threaten Legal Action Against White Nationalist Rally

On Friday night, protesters at a “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Va. used the Detroit Red Wings' logo on posters.

The team issued a statement on Saturday, condemning the demonstration, and threatening possible legal action for the use of their logo.

The protests stemmed from the removal of a statue of Confederate general Robert E. Lee.

Here is the response from the Red Wings.

White nationalists continued the protests Saturday morning at the University of Virginia, carrying tiki torches.
