Bungie has been called out by Destiny 2 players for the Road Complex AA1 gauntlets that have a stylized version of the word Kek emblazoned down the sleeve over a green background. Many felt that this was eerily close to a similar symbol used by a white supremacist group that was seen during the recent Charlottesville rally where a woman was killed by a car that plowed into a crowd of counter protesters.
The "National Flag of Kekistan" also features a stylized version of "kek" over a green background and is said to be modeled after the Nazi swastika war symbol.
Bungie responded first on Twitter:
1/2 It’s come to our attention that a gauntlet in Destiny 2 shares elements with a hate symbol. It is not intentional. We are removing it.— Bungie (@Bungie) September 12, 2017
2/2 Our deepest apologies. This does NOT represent our values, and we are working quickly to correct this. We renounce hate in all forms.— Bungie (@Bungie) September 12, 2017
Later, Bungie CEO Pete Parsons weighed in on the issue:
At Bungie, our company values place the highest emphasis on inclusion of all people and respect for all who work with us or play our games. https://t.co/lox0XuYhgJ— pete parsons (@pparsons) September 12, 2017
