UPDATE: Top Dog released a statement Monday saying that the employee voluntarily resigned.
BERKELEY (KRON) — An employee at a hot dog restaurant in Berkeley was fired after attending a violent white supremacy rally in Virginia.
Cole White was fired from Top Dog after being ousted on Twitter Saturday by @YesYoureRacist.
The original post with White’s identity was retweeted over 19,000 times.
White worked at the popular hot dog restaurant Top Dog on Durant Avenue near the U.C. Berkeley campus.
On Sunday a sign was posted on the restaurant’s door that read:
Effective Saturday 12th August, Cole White no longer works at top dog.
The actions of those in Charlottesville are not supported by top dog. We believe in individual freedom, and voluntary association for everyone.
