Destiny 2 apology for 'Nazi-inspired' Kekistan flag

106

Destiny 2's developer has apologised after featuring armour in the video game that resembles a flag associated with the alt-right and internet trolls, BBC reports.

The item matches the design and colouring of the Kekistan flag - a banner made for a fictional country, which anti-racism campaigners say was modelled on a Nazi war flag.

Developer Bungie said it had already removed some instances of the imagery.

It added that others would be wiped by an update planned for next week.

"It's come to our attention that a gauntlet in Destiny 2 shares elements with a hate symbol," the Washington State-based firm tweeted.

"It is not intentional. We are removing it.

"Our deepest apologies. This does not represent our values, and we are working quickly to correct this. We renounce hate in all forms."

The firm has not provided any other information about how the art came to be included in the first place.
