Bungie Removes Destiny 2 Glove With 'Hate Symbol' On It

Bungie Removes Destiny 2 Glove With 'Hate Symbol' On It

"It has come to our attention that a gauntlet in Destiny 2 shares elements with a hate symbol", developer Bungie tweeted earlier today.

As freaky as it might sound, the Cult of Kek even has its own flag, called the "Kekistan flag", which bears a resemblance to a "German Nazi war flag", according to the SPLC.

The "Legendary" item was removed during Destiny 2's update on Tuesday, which went on a little longer than expected with a further three-hour outage for fans, with servers going back online around 10pm British time.




The word "kek" originated as a meme in World of Warcraft many years ago, but later became adopted by the alt-right as a quasi-symbol of white nationalism. We are removing it. This does NOT represent our values, and we are working quickly to correct this. As the Southern Poverty Law Center points out, alt-right protesters have carried this flag at various rallies and demonstrations. "We renounce hate in all forms". Well, they are the "Road Complex AA1" gauntlets, which bear a design that is worryingly similar to the "KEK" logo found on the Kekistan flag. Though the gauntlet had yet to draw any complaints from the game's players, it seems that its developers wanted to remove it as swiftly as possible before any controversy could arise.

Destiny 2 is now undergoing a scheduled maintenance today that was supposed to last for 4 hours.
