Hearing restaurant workers speak Spanish sends man on rant

Since the video was made public, at least two other people have posted videos of Schlossberg berating them with racist language in other separate incidents.

In the video, Schlossberg is seen complaining to an employee that he had heard several staff members and customers speaking Spanish.

Schlossberg has been caught on video in tirades before. "Assuming all Spanish speakers are undocumented is not only ignorant but a little sad", the event site reads.

The manager tried to explain that the employee was speaking Spanish to a regular customer who frequents Fresh Kitchen.

A petition started on Change.org yesterday urges the New York State Bar Association and the First Judicial Department Attorneys Grievance Committee to disbar the man, whom it names and identifies as a lawyer. The account asked supporters to donate money in order to book a local Mariachi band. I pay for their welfare, I pay for their ability to be here. Just yesterday, on the same day that Schlossberg went viral, our president called deported immigrants "animals"; this just a week after his chief of staff said immigrants "don't have skills" and don't "integrate well". Actually, there's a whole part of America that only speaks Spanish, and a lot of those people live in NY now.

Hamas Scaled Back Gaza Protests Due to Egyptian Pressure
Israeli troops shot dead dozens of Palestinian protesters on the Gaza border on Monday when the high-profile opening of the U.S. Israel's military said those comments proved the protests were not peaceful.

The man then threatened to call immigration agents. Many Twitter users posted information for the New York State Bar Association and urged followers to file complaints.

While patronizing Fresh Kitchen in Manhattan's midtown area, Schlossberg overheard workers talking to customers in Spanish and that set him on a war path. a fellow customer filmed Schlossberg's rant on a camera phone.

The rant drew heavy criticism for Schlossberg as well as his business, the Law Office of Aaron M. Schlossberg, which has been flooded with one-star reviews on Yelp, USA Today reported.

I will begin sharing them. His website says his law firm is right across the street. After he was identified, some people went on Yelp to ruin his rating on the business review site. A NY congressman sent a grievance to the state court system asking for an investigation which could result in Schlossberg losing his law license.

Building security for Schlossberg's law office told the Daily News they'd bar him from entering the Madison Avenue building, but Schlossberg denied the claim. There's video of him screaming "You are not a Jew" at Jewish people supporting Palestine at a demonstration in May 2017, for example.
