A man who was one of the Charlottesville white supremacists that attended a planned, peaceful nationalist rally has lost his job after being identified on social media.
Cole White, who was outed on Twitter, was fired from his job at a Berkeley, California, hot dog chain, called Top Dog. White had been employed as a cook at the fast-food restaurant.
Top Dog hung up a poster outside of its store that read:
“Effective Saturday 12th August, Cole White no longer works at Top Dog. The actions of those in Charlottesville are not supported by Top Dog. We believe in individual freedom and voluntary association for everyone.”
On Saturday, a Twitter account called “Yes You’re Racist” that has been uploading images of rally participants in Charlottesville posted a picture of a man and exposed him as Cole White.
