Man’s rant at workers speaking Spanish goes viralPosted: Updated:
What is being described as a bigoted rant in Manhattan is going viral on social media.
The video shows a man inside a Manhattan Fresh Kitchen upset because employees are speaking Spanish to customers.
“Your staff is speaking Spanish to customers,” the man says. “Every person I listen to. He spoke it. He spoke it. She’s speaking it … it’s America.”
He goes on to say, “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.”
After threatening to call Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the man says people who come to the U.S. live off his money and welfare – adding that “the least” they can do is speak English.
Customers in the video did stand up to the man, calling his views ignorant. People on Twitter identified the man as attorney Aaron M. Schlossberg. News 12 has reached out to Schlossberg for a response.
WARNING: Video contains profanity.
