Tiki Brand Denounces Torch Nazis

CNN Money reports:

Tiki Brand is distancing itself from white nationalists who used tiki torches in a protest march in Charlottesville, Virginia. “Tiki Brand is not associated in any way with the events that took place in Charlottesville and are deeply saddened and disappointed,” the company said in a statement Monday. “We do not support their message or the use of our products in this way.”

Tiki Brand, which has 70 employees and is owned by Lamplight Farms Inc. of Wisconsin, said its torches are intended for positive events. “Our products are designed to enhance backyard gatherings and to help family and friends connect with each other at home in their yard,” the company said.
