White Supremacist Logo Snuck Into Destiny 2 Is Being Removed

News 12 Sep , 2017 0

The Road Complex AA1 gauntlets, a legendary item in Destiny 2, was discovered to bear a slightly tweaked logo that bears a non-coincidental resemblance to a white supremacist logo. Bungie has been made aware of the issue and is moving to get it removed.

The logo, which looks disturbingly like the hate symbol for “Kekistan,” was discovered this morning by Waypoint, who then reached out to Activision and Bungie about the issue. Unless Bungie comes out and explains how this got into the game, it is unlikely the public will ever know.

The “Kekistan” flag resembles the Nazi third reich flag and emerged from white rights image boards. Popular white supremacists encouraged white people to write “Kekistani” on census data to claim themselves as dispossessed and oppressed people in order to make a point about white rights.

The flag and logo were prominent during the Charlottesville nazi rally and the Southern Poverty Law Center has identified it as a symbol of hate.

Our Take
Bungie has said in their twitter statement on the subject that the texture was not intentional, but it seems exceedingly unlikely this was just happened upon by accident.
