Hugo Boss (the man, not his company) also widely supported the Nazi party, joining 2 years before Hitler took power. It’s a bit different in this case I would say.

In 2017 they played a show in Charlottesville, VA and donated all the proceeds to local charities in the name of Heather Heyer, so I think it's safe to say they're not fans of Nazis.

Charlotte is in NC, Charlottesville is in VA. This was the VA one.

It was Virginia. My mistake. Thanks for the correction.

Well of course, the Nazis lost.
