Jennifer Lawrence has joined many celebrities who have used their platforms to denounce the actions of white supremacists—but her new approach is slightly different. She needs your help.
The actress, who's only public social media account is Facebook, shared images of people at the white suprematist rally that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia, over the weekend and included a homework assignment for folks online.

"These are the faces of hate," she wrote. "Look closely and post anyone you find. You can't hide with the internet you pathetic cowards!"
While no one seems to have put names to the faces in the comment section of her post, @YesYoureRacist has been identifying people for inflammatory and racist language online since 2012. Over the weekend, the account posted a similar call for help with identifying people in the images circulated online.
While online people are still identifying these tiki-torch wielding assholes, some have already lost their jobs after being affiliated with the rally. Additionally, GoDaddy has banned neo-Nazi site for violating terms of service.

Of course, we should always be careful in the online rush to doxx people. It doesn't always work out as planned.
Still, it's validating to see someone at the level of Jennifer Lawrence's celebrity speak out so loudly against hate.
