People who attended the Charlottesville protests over the weekend are now being called out online. 

Images of the protests have gone viral and a Twitter account called, 'Yes, You're Racist' is shaming those who marched by asking the internet to identify and expose those who participated in the violent demonstrations. 

According to the person running the account, some protestors even lost their job due to their participation in the protests. 

Cole White, who was one of the first people identified, lost his job at Top Dog, a restaurant in California.

Another man called a local news station to defend himself after his photo was posted on social media. 

It's not a flawless system, though. ABC News reports a professor was mistakenly identified online as an attendee and had to defend his location over the weekend. 

The 'Yes You're Racist' account is gathering information from the public by posting photos on Twitter and asking people for information. 

The account has identified two of the attendees as Ohio men.
