Latino Twitter Comes For Pro-Trump Lawyer Who Threatened Spanish-Speaking Workers

Share

A white man's rant against employees speaking Spanish in a NY restaurant has gone viral as internet shaming exposes his ugly sentiments, further blowing America's racial issues wide open.

In his Facebook post, Suazo said the video was taken by his wife and her best friend as they ordered lunch at the restaurant.

"Your clients and your staff are speaking Spanish to staff when they should be speaking English..."

The video seems to start mid-sentence.

In another video, a man who appears to be Schlossberg is seen defending President Trump as "not racist" at a rally organized by a Hispanic group. "Every person I listened to - he spoke it, he spoke it, she's speaking it". The manager said the man stormed off. "It's very ignorant", another says.

When confronted by an employee of the cafe, the man continued to yell at the women and threatened to call ICE. "And my guess is, they're not documented, so my next call is to ICE to have each one of them kicked out of my country".

Veteran Gianluigi Buffon has confirmed that he will leave Juventus this summer after spending incredible 17 years with The Old Lady.

If Duncan were at the Manhattan restaurant, she said she probably would have reminded the man that most people who live here have come from someplace else, and they have a right to speak any way that they choose. He turns around and says, "Honey, I'm calling ICE".

He then addressed the woman who called him out behind the camera, and made a terribly insensitive comment about her weight. Schlossberg is a graduate of the elite Haverford School in Philadelphia's Maine Line area, and got his undergraduate degree from Johns Hopkins University.

By Wednesday, the the video had gone viral, with the original video being shared more than 60,000 times.

This week, that honor goes to Aaron Schlossberg, a New York City lawyer, identified by Forward, who lost it when he heard an employee at Fresh Kitchen in Manhattan speaking Spanish to a customer. He said he was asking the state's bar association to "look into your bigoted hate here & across NYC".

Hours later, after receiving several tips, King identified the man as Aaron M. Schlossberg, a NY business and commercial law attorney who practices in Midtown, about a block away from the restaurant.

A manager with Fresh Kitchen declined an interview with WPIX, saying that the incident was between customers and did not necessarily involve the establishment.
