'This is America': Man who ranted against Spanish speakers gets internet-shamed

White American Man Gets Mad at Fresh Kitchen Workers Speaking Spanish Threatens to Call ICE Jerk Videotaped Threatening To Call ICE On Two Women Speaking Spanish TO EACH OTHER — Obviously He's A

After a video of the man yelling at employees in a Fresh Kitchen for speaking Spanish and threatening to call ICE on them was posted on Facebook and Twitter, the internet took just a few hours Wednesday to figure out who he is: a Manhattan lawyer named Aaron Schlossberg, according to Shaun King, a columnist at the Intercept, who was among the first to post the video.

Witnesses told WPIX that a man in a white button-down shirt complained to a manager about two employees taking lunch orders in Spanish.

The manager said the man's rant infuriated him, but he refused to return the rancor.

The man then stormed out.

The man continues to express his displeasure to an employee and threatens to call Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials.

"My guess is, they're undocumented, so my next call is to ICE to have each one of them kicked out of my country", he ranted.

When the worker tried to answer him they are bilingual and therefore they speak in both languages, the man did not accept it: "This is America", he exclaimed. Spanish and Spanish Creole speakers comprise the bulk of the non-English speaking population - about 25 percent, or 1.87 million residents.

Woman Poops Tim Hortons Restaurant Floor, Throws Feces At Employee
RCMP said officers briefly detained the woman, who is known to police in the area, and issued a date for her to appear in court. It begins with the woman furiously pointing and shouting at the employee at a cash register.


"It's disgusting to me, in this day and age, that people think it's OK to walk around and be disrespectful and racist", she said. She responded, "Maybe you should get hit by a vehicle!"

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. "I wish someone tells me I can't speak in my native language!" He added that numerous people took videos.

"So my wife and her best friend Just experience what America is becoming!" he began. Keeping your voice at a certain level is important, as well as making eye contact with other people who are there to see if they will join you in intervening.

Newsweek reached out to Suazo and Fresh Kitchen for comment but did not hear back in time for publication. "The Tip Line should not be used as an instrument to intimidate or harass", said Rachael Yong Yow, the spokeswoman for the NY field office of ICE.

Many people on social media justified the massive amount of energy given to ruining Schlossberg's online presence by pointing to his pedigree.

"It's what makes this city great".

An early look at Thursday's front.
