Manhattan lawyer filmed threatening Spanish-speaking staff at NY restaurant

Jerk Videotaped Threatening To Call ICE On Two Women Speaking Spanish TO EACH OTHER — Obviously He's A

After the video went viral Wednesday, social activist Shaun King took to Twitter and asked his followers for help identify the man.

A lawyer blew a gasket after hearing people speaking Spanish in a NY restaurant, with footage of the freaky freak-out showing the man threaten a waiter and two customers with deportation.

Facebook user Edward Suazo uploaded the video to his account Tuesday and wrote that his wife and her best friend had been chatting in Spanish with a waiter when the angry man jumped in.

The video shows Schlossberg aggressively confronting a restaurant manager after hearing customers and employees speaking Spanish. "My guess is they're not documented", Schlossberg said. In that one, a man singles out a woman wearing a headdress called a niqab that covers most of her face, except for her eyes, and prods her by asking whether it's Halloween. "Where in the constitution or the law does it say that in a public place that you can't use another language other than English?"

Espaillat's formal complaint, posted to Twitter and also signed by Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr., called the attorney's rant a "humiliating and insulting attack on the more than 50 years of progress that this nation has made since the Civil Rights movement".

The grievance committee will determine what action, if any, should be taken against Schlossberg.

Schlossberg, whose law office is next door to the midtown Manhattan coffee shop, boasts in his online biography that he's fluent in Spanish and conversational in French, with a basic knowledge of Mandarin Chinese and Hebrew.

New York City mayor Bill DeBlasio appeared to subtweet Schlossberg on Wednesday, saying that "New York City's diversity is our strength". "The least they could do - the least they could do is speak English".

The lawyer did not respond to messages seeking comment, nor did anyone else from his office, and ALM could not independently confirm that the man in the video is, in fact, Schlossberg.

The customer began his rant after seeing a lunchtime regular speaking Spanish with a Hispanic employee, the manager told the New York Daily News. The group Latinos for Revolution has also planned to throw a "Latin Party at Racist Aaron Schlossberg's Midtown Office" Friday evening.

Willie Morris told Fox 5 that Schlossberg once shouted racist remarks at him on a city street and he posted it on YouTube. The man then walked out.

The attorney's identity was revealed thanks to some clever crowdsourcing by black rights activist Shaun King, who also unearthed a video from 2016 in which Schlossberg can be seen approaching a stranger on a NY sidewalk and calling him an ugly "foreigner". "I just looked at him and said, "You're very ignorant, '" she said".
