Charlottesville marchers have been fired, disowned, arrested
It's been almost two weeks since the white supremacy rally in Charlottesville. Since then, several participants have been identified online, led by a Twitter account, @YesYoureRacist. Here's a look at the backlash they've faced:
- Cole White and Ryan Roy - unemployed: The Washington Post reports that White resigned voluntarily from libertarian restaurant Top Dog. USA Today reports Roy lost his job after appearing in a VICE News documentary about the protest; he said this "proves [his] point."
- Pete Tefft - disowned: His father said he "is "not welcome at our family gatherings any longer," according to the New York Post.
- Peter Cvjetanovic - receiving death threats: He told Channel 2 News, he is "not the angry racist [people] see" in the viral rally photo of him.
- Christopher Cantwell - in police custody: The New York Times reports Cantwell, the focus of the VICE documentary about the protest, is facing three felony charges.
