NEW YORK, NEW YORK
UPDATE: NY lawyer booted from office space, internet to sent Mariachi band and taco truck
A video of a man berating workers at a New York deli for speaking Spanish has gone viral...and it’s not his first disturbing tirade.
Attorney Aaron Schlossberg can be seen arguing with an employee at a Fresh Kitchen deli in midtown Manhattan and complaining that every member of the staff is speaking Spanish to customers when “they should be speaking English.”
“This is America,” Schlossberg says to a man who appeared to be the manager. “Your staff should be speaking English.”
Witnesses chime in, calling Schlossberg ignorant. But he’s not done yet: he threatens to call I.C.E on the workers.
“My guess is they’re not documented so my next call is to I.C.E to have each one of them kicked out of my country. I pay for their welfare, I pay for their ability to be here. The least they can do is speak English.”
The husband of the woman who recorded the video posted it to social media where it already has more than 4 million views.
“So my wife and her best friend just experience what America is becoming,” writes Edward Suazo. “They were on their lunch time and ordering their food and just because they where speaking in Spanish to the waiter this a**hole jumps in and started to call the waiter and my wife and her best friend all types of names and threatened to call I.C.E on them and the employees !!!!”
But this is not the first time the George Washington Law School grad has been caught making discriminatory remarks.
In 2017, he was part of a group of protesters at an anti-Linda Sarsour rally against pro-Palestine Jews.
“You are not a Jew,” he screams.
Another video shows him confronting Hispanic activists in New York City.
YouTube user Willie Morris posted a video in 2016 of his encounter with the disgraced lawyer but updated it recently after the deli tirade went viral.
“HOLY COW HOLY COW I THINK THIS IS THE SAME GUY WHO GOT IN MY FACE 2 YEARS AGO!” Morris wrote on Twitter.
Morris says he was walking down the sidewalk in New York City when Schlossberg cussed him out and assaulted him.
“He sees me, makes eye contact with me and makes a bee line towards me, holds up his briefcase in front of me and tries to shove me with it. Effectively he shoves himself backwards and then he just starts cussing at me.”
Schlossberg then asks what country Morris is from and says he’s going to call police.
“You don’t run into me. I’m a citizen here, you’re not. You’re an ugly f*cking foreigner. F*ck you.”
Then there was that time he taunted foreigners outside of Trump Tower.
Meanwhile, internet users are taking their anger out on his law firm, The Law Office of Aaron M Schlossberg, by bombarding Yelp with one-star reviews.
