Adjust Comment Print

A man berated employees and customers for speaking Spanish in a NY restaurant, describing them as undocumented and threatening to call immigration officials on them in a rant captured on video. A video that Edward Suazo posted onto Facebook on Monday shows a gringo losing his shit after an employee at a midtown Fresh Kitchen addressed customers in Spanish. The manager who handled the situation told the New York Daily News that the customer and employee were "speaking Spanish because they are friends". "Every person I listened to - he spoke it, he spoke it, she's speaking it". He spoke it. He spoke it.

"So my wife and her best friend Just experience what America is becoming!" he began. "So my next call is to ICE to have each one of them kicked out of my country", he says.

With other customers telling him he's "f**ked up", Schlossberg ups the ante, going into a full-blown racist rant and threatening to call ICE.

The man was then identified as Aaron M Schlossberg, a Manhattan attorney.

A white man caused a scene at a NY restaurant earlier this week after he noticed customers and an employee speaking Spanish.

Schlossberg is reported to be a commercial lawyer whose office is listed as being across from the Fresh Kitchen where the incident took place.

Suazo said the two women were ordering lunch, and speaking Spanish with a worker helping them, when the creep butted in. "I wish someone tells me I can't speak in my native language!"

He later stressed that since Schlossberg was a customer, he as manager "had to stay professional and ask him to leave".

Last year, Thomas D. Homan, the acting director ICE, warned anyone living in the country illegally that they were deportable: "You should look over your shoulder", he said.

The man in the video is thought to be a NY lawyer. 'He got mad, waiting in line for his food.
