Lawyer berates restaurant workers for speaking Spanish - then the internet takes over

The man then accuses the Spanish speakers of being undocumented immigrants. "After, I kind of got flustered, but I also kind of feel bad for him because it shows that his mental stability isn't all there".

Online activists had time today to lay a digital smackdown to Aaron Schlossberg, the white lawyer whose racist rant at a NY restaurant has gone viral. 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.

The video of a white man yelling about customers and a worker speaking Spanish at a Fresh Kitchen lit up the internet Wednesday, turning the attorney into a figure for national scorn.

As of Thursday morning, a local mariachi band was booked, and Goldberg said the performance will be recorded "provided building security does not kick them out". "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".

In the complaint letter, US Representative Adriano Espaillat and Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr., said that they believed the video depicted misconduct that should not be tolerated.

"Factors a disciplinary committee will consider in deciding what if any discipline is warranted include extenuating circumstances and whether Mr. Schlossberg has prior discipline". His office was not accepting calls or messages. The Interceptor columnist Shaun King meanwhile claimed he had received 13 reports of people being "targeted & harassed by Attorney Aaron Schlossberg throughout New York City from 2015 until this week". As reporters peppered him with questions, Schlossberg stormed off and spoke into his phone.

Mauer carded a 4-over par 76, followed by a 3-over par 75 in the final round to pace the team in 47th with a 7-over par 151. That's the biggest takeaway from the team after finishing the NCAA Regional in Columbus runner-up.

Following the outburst, Schlossberg's firm, which practices commercial and insurance law, was bombarded with one-star reviews on Yelp, with commenters calling him a "vile racist".

When he heard the two workers speak Spanish to each other, witnesses said, he lost it. During the confrontation with the ultra-Orthodox protesters, he bragged about having traveled to Israel twice.

PIX11 News asked him if he anything to say about his newfound infamy.

"He is an attorney and he is an officer of the court and there are ground rules and rules of ethics that govern his behavior - and clearly he has violated that", Espaillat said.

The city has always been home to multiple languages, and there are anywhere from 600 to 800 languages spoken in the metropolitan region, said Ross Perlin, co-director of the Endangered Language Alliance.
