  • Destiny 2

Bungie has removed a Destiny 2 gauntlet that featured a "hate symbol" from the FPS, saying that the similarity pointed out by the game's players was "not intentional".

Bungie CEO Pete Parsons later added to Bungie's statement.

Though it has not been formally announced which item features the hate symbol, Reddit has concluded that its likely a legendary gauntlet named Road Complex AA1, which features lettering and coloring reminiscent of the "Kekistan flag".

2/2 Our deepest apologies.

The Souther Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which chronicles hate groups, has an entry on the so-called "satirical religion" and the group's actions. This symbol has become a popular white supremacist symbol.

In the same post, the legal advocacy organization notes the flag was included in a poster for an August 12 "Unite the Right" demonstration in Charlottesville, Va.

Even though the gauntlets hadn't been brought up as problematic by the Destiny community at large, the reality is that nipping this thing in the bud is absolutely the right move.

Today's removal of the gauntlets coincided with the game's scheduled maintenance, which was supposed to end at 11 a.m. PDT.

The flag is modelled after the German military flag used in Nazi Germany, and was used by alt-right groups at the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia last month. "It will be removed from inspections and icons in a hot fix planned for next week".
