DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Red Wings say they are considering legal action to stop white nationalists from using their logo as part of a “disturbing” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The team said in a statement Saturday it “vehemently” disagrees with the rally and is in no way associated with it. The logo of the NHL club could be seen on items held by people at the rally.

The Red Wings say they are “exploring every possible legal action as it pertains to the misuse of our logo in this disturbing demonstration.” The team adds that it believes hockey is for everyone and celebrates the diversity of its fan base and the country.

There is a Michigan-based white nationalist group called the Detroit Right Wings that uses the Red Wings’ logo.
