Bungie is working to remove a Legendary piece of armor from Destiny 2that features what looks like a well known white supremacist symbol.

As reported by Waypoint, the armor piece, known as the Road Complex AA1 gauntlets, has what resembles the "KEK" logo featured on the Kekistan flag, which serves as asymbol of white supremacy. For comparison, check out the symbol on the gauntlet below, and the strikingly similar logo featured on the aforementioned flag here.

Bungie took to Twitter to confirm the gauntlet will be removed from Destiny 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," the developer said.

In a subsequent post, Bungie apologized for the item's inclusion, saying,"This does NOT represent our values, and we are working quickly to correct this. We renounce hate in all forms."
