Blackhawks Involved in Another Controversy



Last week, some of the newest members of the Chicago Blackhawks held interviews.


During the press conferences, they stood behind a podium featuring the team's black, red, and white stripes.

However, some people were offended by this because it resembled the design used by the Third Reich.

Rectifying the Situation



The Blackhawks addressed the issue by posting pictures of the players zoomed in, removing the podium from view.


While it appears to be an honest mistake by the communications team, it still angered many people.

Do you think the Blackhawks should apologize?
