Several of the right-wing sign holders have held up signs that feature the Detroit Red Wings' logo, which led to the team's statement.

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

The Detroit Red Wings said they "vehemently disagree" with the use of their logo by far-right extremists at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, that turned violent Saturday and led to at least three deaths.
