After his employers Top Dog restaurant, in Berkeley, were alerted that White attended the rally, he was sacked, according to Daily Mail.

YesYoureRacist has been on a mission to "expose casual racism" on Twitter since 2012, and the account has amassed 323,000 followers.

One of the photographs you couldn't avoid is of Peter Cvjetanovic, a 20 year old, student from Reno, Nevada.

He added that he wasn't the "angry" person seen in the photos but defended his beliefs as "a white nationalist".

A torch-wielding white supremacist caught on camera marching in the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville claims he is not "an angry racist" and just wants to preserve European culture.

Cvjetanovic, who was shouting with other white nationalist group members, was photographed by Getty Images, which provides images to hundreds of news outlets nationwide. "It is not ideal; there are flaws to it, of course".

A white nationalist has been fired from his job as Twitter begins naming and shaming alt-right supporters involved in yesterday's deadly Charlottesville rally.

Reactions to the news quickly followed on social media.

"They were undisguised in a massively contentious rally surrounded by the media", he said, noting also that there's "a big difference" between making a thoughtless or offensive comment online and marching in the name of white power. "He wasn't a ideal man, but I want to honor and respect what he stood for during his time".

The protests turned deadly Saturday when a vehicle plowed into a crowd of counter-protesters, killing a 32-year-old woman and injuring 19. I went to the Trump rally as a Nazi and they kicked me out and disavowed me.

"We have been witness to the violence that has taken place this weekend during the white nationalist march in Charlottesville, Virginia".

"I have received death threats", said Cvjetanovic, who plans to report to the Reno Police Department at least five instances that he feels are legitimate threats. "These movements do not represent our values as a university", the university's president Marc A. Johnson said in the statement.

Identifying participants of a public rally by name doesn't violate Twitter's terms of service, though publishing private information like an address, phone number or social security number would.

One torch-bearing white nationalist wearing a University of Arkansas shirt was misidentified as an associate professor Kyle Quinn, who was at an event in Arkansas at the time. What struck me most was that these people aren't afraid anymore.
