White Supremacist Resigns From His Job After Being Identified At Charlottesville

Just days after white nationalists descended upon Charlottesville, Virginia, to protest the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee, the consequences are starting to catch up with participants.

After Twitter user @YesYoureRacist made it a mission to out as many of the white supremacists as possible, one California man has already lost his job.

According to Top Dog, a popular restaurant with locations in Berkeley and Oakland that has been in business since 1966, Cole White, one of the first protesters identified on social media, has resigned from his job.

According to a statement from the restaurant, they "spoke with Cole White. During that conversation Cole chose to voluntarily resign his employment with Top Dog and we accepted his resignation."

The restaurant, which received credible threats following White's resignation, went on to say, "There have been reports that he was terminated. Those reports are false. There have been reports that Top Dog knowingly employs racists and promotes racist theology. That too is false."

"We pride ourselves on embracing and respecting all our differences and every individual's choice to do as that person wishes within the boundaries of the law," the statement continued. "We do respect our employees' right to their opinions. They are free to make their own choices but must accept the responsibilities of those choices."

The statement concluded, saying, "Individual freedom and voluntary exchange are core to the philosophy of Top Dog. We look forward to cooking the same great food for at least another 50 years."

The restaurant also posted a sign in its window to let people know of White's ouster:

And the news made its way around Twitter:

Apparently it wasn't White's first time at the racist rodeo:

One down, hundreds to go:
