Bungie Removes Destiny 2 Gauntlet Featuring a 'Hate Symbol'

It's unclear exactly what the whole situation is regarding these Destiny 2 gauntlets.

Bungie has removed a gauntlet in Destiny 2 for looking too similar to a hate symbol, the company announced today.

In a series of tweets, Bungie explained, "It's come to our attention that a guantlet in Destiny 2 shares elements with a hate symbol. It is not intentional. We are removing it." The company also added, "Our deepest apologies This does not represent our values, and we are working quickly to correct this. We renounce hate in all forms."

Bungie didn't actually announce which gauntlet the company was referring to, but Reddit users quickly assumed that it's the "Road Complex AA1" gauntlet, which is a pretty safe bet.

The problem here is that the Road Complex's forward "K", backward "K" with bars sandwiched in between mirrors a similar design for the "Kekistan" flag, an alt-right flag that is pretty clearly based on Nazi symbols and 4chan elements.

Despite the mistake on Bungie's part, it is good that the studio has taken measures to remove the gauntlets before it had a chance to create a larger misunderstanding. It's unclear at this time if this was an intentional move from an artist at Bungie or an unfortunate misunderstanding.

We've reached out to Bungie to confirm that these are the gauntlets removed, and whether Bungie is looking into how it slipped into the release version of the game.
