Culture Man Freaks Out & Threatens to Call ICE Because Someone Dared to Speak Spanish In NYC

Culture Man Freaks Out & Threatens to Call ICE Because Someone Dared to Speak Spanish In NYC

"I wish someone tells me I can't speak in my native language!"

The visibly annoyed man on the video says employees at a midtown Manhattan eatery are "speaking Spanish to customers when they should be speaking English" and, "it's America".

In the meantime, eagle-eyed observers have pointed out that this isn't the first time Schlossberg has made his hateful views public.

"Assuming all Spanish speakers are undocumented is not only ignorant but a little sad", the event description reads. He was angry that staff members preparing food were speaking Spanish to customers, when, he said disdainfully, they "should be speaking English".

"We are requesting the band to sing the famous, endearing, and warm Spanish children song, 'La Cucaracha, ' the cockroach", campaign creator Mark Goldberg, of NY, said on the page. In other words, a mariachi band will be performing "La Cucaracha" at his workplace sometime soon (the exact date hasn't been released for fear of attracting counter protests). "I pay for their ability to be here".

The man has been identified by U.S. media as lawyer Aaron Schlossberg.

"He was waiting for his sandwich - and he heard people speaking Spanish".

Guatemala Becomes Second Country To Move Israeli Embassy To Jerusalem

An image made from video shared to social media on May 15, 2018 shows a man who threatened to call ICE on people who spoke Spanish in a restaurant in NY.

A man identified as Aaron Schlossberg is seen berating Spanish-speaking employees and customers in a racist tirade.

A NY attorney believed to have been seen on videotape berating Spanish-speaking restaurant workers has reportedly been kicked out of his office space.

Ever since his rant went viral, the lawyer has gone silent, apparently at a loss for words after being outed by the New York Daily News and other outlets as the man behind the remarks on Wednesday.

"They're yelling, they're claiming things that aren't true", Schlossberg said as he hid behind the umbrella. "Defaming me. I can't even move, because they're blocking me".

Also, Congressman Adriano Espaillat and Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. filed a complaint against Schlossberg to the "New York State Unified Court System's Departmental Disciplinary Committee - calling on the panel to investigate the attorney and possibly revoke his license", according to The Post. In another video, he allegedly shoved a pedestrian on the sidewalk then told him, "I'm a citizen here".

On his website profile, Schlossberg touts his "skilled representation in commercial and insurance law that is backed by extensive experience with both litigation and pre-litigation dispute resolution".
