    Alright so, as some may know, I've got my crew going. For unknown reasons, we aren't very popular. Our emblem is (or WAS) a celtic cross with a red drop in the middle, created in Rockstar's own emblem creator.
    Now you'd think if Rockstar had the time to go after certain crews they'd go after the ones with custom/modded emblems or whatever they are called. But no no no. They go after something as innocent as a celtic cross. It was made in their own emblem creator so there weren't any fancy details or anything as they describe as "offensive".

    I found out by getting this mail [​IMG] .

    I've submitted a request at Rockstar support asking what is happening. I don't expect much since their support are run by bots.
    Has this happened to anybody else? It makes me sick that people simply cannot have their crews for themselves. We didn't show any 18+ images, we don't copy any real life organisation, we are but a random crew with a few good guys to have fun with.

    So I'm guessing that someone thought it looked like a Swastika? If it did then fair enough but I don't see the harm in a genuine Celtic cross.

    Does this look like a swastika?

    Rockstar needs to get their act together and start acting like a professionel company.

    No it does not. Either you've pissed someone off or it means something to someone.
    Makes no sense to me.

    Perhaps as the Celtic cross is a form of Christian cross they thought it was making a religious statement? Whether or not you intended it, that symbol has been around far longer than you or I. The ring around the cross possibly dating from the ancient Egyptian Ankh.

    We never attemp to get people going nuts. It happens that they get into our parties to talk smack and scream into their microphone when we bring actual arguments.
    The question is now, where is the limit? My friend and co-founder brought it up. 'It really gets to the point where we could have a big giant pink pony as an emblem and still get taken down because some horse-activist finds it offensive'.

    The thing is, Rockstar even admitted we didn't break their rules. Some over sensitive a$$ simply decided he wanted to be offended.

    Your username has a K in it, my name has a k in it, cultural appropriation alert!

    That'll be it. Excuse my ignorance, I never knew that.
    Google search for "white power symbol".

    So because some WP dummkopfs use a historical symbol for their own agenda, it should be removed completely because SJW finds it offensive? EVERYTHING offends someone these days and a company that relies on customers should have no say in what is offensive whether it is a celtic cross or a BLM crew.

    I can think of a few we've pissed off but come on, Rockstar should let the weak people cry and use some common sense.
    I googled 'White Power Symbols'. Indeed, the cross was there but so was a fist and a power button from a laptop. Still it is not justified that a symbol from the early middle ages is removed because some wannabe skinheads uses it.

    I completely agree. It was a Celtic cross way before WP learned what a pencil was but what can ya do?
    Redesign. There are other Celtic crosses out there if you really want one.

    After seeing this on GTAlogo.com (a site where you can get some good free replacements) I'm starting to think I was a bit naive earlier.
    This blatantly racist WP logo that I just reported looks almost identical to what you had removed. Now I'm not blaming R* at all.

    Racist material within the spoiler.

    I see the similarities but come on, Even the KKK doesn't go back to the early middle ages. Looking for WP stuff in random symbols is like yelling 'ILLUMINATI CONFIRMED' when seeing a triangle.

    Every Scandinavian flag can look like a swastika if you til it and add some lines. Even easier to do it with a Scottish flag. Doesn't mean they are bad flags.

    Somethings ppl make can walk a thin line, I think it makes R* paranoid. They'd rather throw it out than question it. In the past I had a emblem banned cause of a red background, they couldn't explain why and gave it back. Another was banned in which they said there was hidden symbols in the layers?? I told them they might be looking to hard and seeing what they want to see, they gave it back.

    yeah its unfortunate and i disagree that it should be removed. but i think we at least found a reason why as opposed to the dead silence r* provided. and hate groups have a way of stealing benign symbolisms from the past and perverting them. i mean take this infamous example and apply it to your situation. think if you had a buddhist passivism crew hell bent on bringing peace and tranquillity to los santos youd be banned in an hour
