A New York attorney whose racist rant went viral after he berated two women for speaking Spanish inside a cafe in New York City Tuesday was reportedly kicked out of his office space Thursday and has had a formal complaint filed against him by a New York Congressman.
"If they have the balls to come here and live off of my money", Schlossberg said. I pay for their welfare. "So the least they could do is speak English", he added. The incident was captured on video and posted to Facebook.
Critics say the man appears to have surfaced in a video of another heated political moment, a protest past year against Muslim activist Linda Sarsour where ralliers held signs and icons associated with the alt-right, the far-right movement associated with racism, xenophobia and anti-Semitism. During the confrontation with the ultra-Orthodox protesters, he bragged about having traveled to Israel twice. Schlossberg has been caught on video in tirades before. "Maybe you shouldn't eat that sandwich", he could be heard saying.
Fox 5 called the law firm and emailed the Schlossberg for comment but has not heard back.
Manhattan resident Willie Morris posted a vlog about his weird encounter with Schlossberg on a street in 2016.
Morris said he was walking down the street when a man coming from the opposite direction made eye contact, walked faster toward him and shoved him with his briefcase. "This is America", the man says in the video. You don't run into me. I'm a citizen here. "You're not. You're an ugly, f--ing foreigner".
"It was so surreal", he told CNN. "We are also checking with NYPD today if any permits are needed just in case".
The Fresh Kitchen opened in the past couple of months, according to online reviews, and is a fast-casual "sandwich and salad bar kitchen" that serves a variety of global food, including sushi, pho and tacos. "You should just say 'Thank you for letting me in your motherf******g country'".
Donors raised more than $1,000 on a GoFundMe page that aimed to hire a mariachi band to sing outside the workplace of attorney Aaron Schlossberg, the man seen in a now-viral video ranting against Hispanic restaurant workers.
A worker told ABC News after: 'This is New York City, everybody is different here, everybody has different opinions and some people have a hatred mind.
In one, filmed in May 2017, shows Mr Schlossberg with other Trump supporters swearing at a group of ultra-Orthodox Jews who opposed the state of Israel. "I've been to Israel twice". As of late Thursday afternoon, more than 12,000 people had signed the petition.
