Charlottesville white nationalist protester fired after being identified by Twitter account

A white nationalist protester identified by the Twitter account @YesYoureRacist has since lost his job, the East Bay Times reports. Cole White, an employee at the hot dog chain Top Dog, was fired Saturday, just hours after being noticed in photographs from the Charlottesville Unite the Right march:

"Effective Saturday 12th August, Cole White no longer works at Top Dog," the hot dog company wrote in a statement. "The actions of those in Charlottesville are not supported by Top Dog. We believe in individual freedom and voluntary association for everyone."

@YesYoureRacist also identified protester Peter Cvjetanovic, who claims he has "received death threats" since being spotted by the account.
