On Wednesday, a male customer of a Manhattan deli threatened two of the lunch chain’s Hispanic staff members with calling the ICE. The man was upset that the two women were speaking only in Spanish to one another and another customer.
Every person I listen to—he’s speaking it, she’s speaking it. This is America,
the man told a small group of Fresh Kitchen’s employees.
He added that he doesn’t want people to speak Spanish in “my country.” The entire incident was caught on camera and posted on the social media. So far, the Facebook clip has more than 4.5 million views.
The customer is also seen lashing out at the manager because his staff and other customers are speaking Spanish. He added that this detail may be a hint that they are “undocumented,” so his “next call” will be to the ICE to get them out of America.
The Man Was Identified
The man even accused the Spanish-speaking staff members of living off his money since American taxpayers are paying for their welfare. “I pay for their ability to be here,” the angry customer added.
Other customers told reporters that the man looked like a “normal […] Caucasian guy”. However, racial minorities took to social media to complain about not being allowed to speak in their native language.
The man wasn’t immediately identified, but he was asked to leave the venue. Forward.com later identified him as Manhattan attorney and Trump supporter, Aaron Schlossberg.
He was seen at one of the President’s campaign rallies and reportedly made a $500 donation to the Trump camp. Schlossberg graduated from Johns Hopkins University and George Washington University’s law school.
Journalists also found that his office is representing Spanish-speaking clients. Meanwhile, his business’ Yelp page was flooded with hateful comments.
