Share

It's unclear when the video was shot, but it was uploaded to YouTube on Wednesday and posted by the group Hispanos En Los Esclavos Unidos on its Facebook page - with a warning to people to watch out for the guy.

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

"And my guess is that they're not documented so my next call is to ICE to have each one of them kicked out of my country", he said.

He went on to exclaim that he "pays for their welfare" and "their ability to be here", and that speaking English was the "least they could do".

The attorney, who received national scorn for his crude commentary, did call the police after accusing a Daily News reporter and photographer of harassment. "The last thing we should be doing is getting upset when they're speaking a language other than English". Eyewitness News spoke to the 35-year-old customer who captured the rant on her cell phone. "I just looked at him and said, "You're very ignorant, '" she said. The United States is made of all cultures and ethnicities".

He only had one review before Wednesday, from a woman who was apparently a client.

Several city elected officials have taken action against an attorney after his racist rant went viral on social media.

Aaron Schlossberg, the New York City attorney who has reportedly been filmed at least three times making bigoted attacks on strangers, is finally facing a bit of justice. P.L.L.C., plummeted to 1.1 stars on Google and 1 star on Yelp after the incident. His biography on the site says "He is fluent in Spanish, conversational in French and has basic knowledge of Mandarin Chinese and Hebrew".

Shaun King posted a video on Instagram on Thursday of Schlossberg verbally assaulting a gentleman in October 2016 who he accused of not being a citizen of the US calling him "an ugly f*cking foreigner".

It should be noted here that Morris is a dark-haired white man from MA. There was no provocation or altercation leading up to the encounter. He then darts away in desperation, trying to evade the press, which simply zooms in the lens rather than pursuing him.

Videos also surfaced of Schlossberg allegedly at rallies standing and yelling with pro-Trump protesters.

Hispanics from the southern Americas are among those seeking the promise of prosperity and freedom which remains one of the defining hallmarks of "the American dream".

The video of a racist rant by a NY lawyer that spread widely on the internet this week is a shocking example of the impudence of racists and xenophobes, said Representative Adriano Espaillat, a Democrat from NY.
