In the aftermath of the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville VA on Saturday which left three people dead, one Twitter account is calling out those protestors who participated in the deadly event.

The “Yes, You’re Racist” Twitter page made a call to action to help pinpoint these radicals:

“If you recognize any of the Nazis marching in #Charlottesville, send me their names/profiles and I'll make them famous #GoodNightAltRight

Once you send the owner of the page information he will investigate them further, contacting their employers or schools letting them know of their participation in the protest.

The Twitter account has already exposed Cole White who has been fired from his job at Top Dog restaurant in Berkley.

A statement from his former employer:

“Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We apologize for the delayed response however we have been inundated with inquiries regarding the incident involving one of our employees that attended the rally in Charlottesville, Virginia…for now we feel it’s imperative that you know Cole White is no longer employees by top dog.”

The page also helped identify perhaps the poster boy of the protest, Peter Cvjetanovic, as seen in the photo at left. He is a student at the University of Nevada, Reno.

The University of Nevada, Reno President Marc Johnson released a statement after he got word that Cvjetanovic had participated in the rally;

"Racism and white supremacist movements have a corrosive effect on our society. These movements do not represent our values as a university. We denounce any movement that targets individuals due to the color of their skin, their religious beliefs, political beliefs, sexual orientation, ability/disability, or whether they were born in our country."

Cvjetanovic has said the image of himself puts him in a negative light,  "But I hope that the people sharing the photo are willing to listen that I’m not the angry racist they see in that photo.”

The “Unite the Right” rally was organized by Neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other alt-right groups in response to that state removing a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee from Emancipation Park.

One person was killed and several injured when a car slammed into counter-protestors then sped away.

The driver, James Alex Fields, Jr. of Maumee, Ohio faces one count of second-degree murder, three counts of malicious wounding and one count of hit-and-run after the incident,
