Following the violent protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, earlier this month, VICE News released a documentary which featured interviews with many of the white supremacists participating in the march. One of the most prominently featured white supremacists was Chris Cantwell, who became known as "the crying Nazi." It turns out Cantwell's newfound prominence was a bad thing.
