That Scumbag Laywer's Racist Rant Is Costing Him

"The least they could do is speak English".

The lawyer's brief rant, which was captured on video, prompted two elected officials to send a letter to the disciplinary committee on Thursday.

"Assuming all Spanish speakers are undocumented is not only ignorant but a little sad", the event description reads.

Schlossberg then said he didn't believe the Spanish-speaking employees were documented.

There have already been some consequences besides online reviews, though: The midtown building where the attorney's office was located evicted him on Thursday. He also states that the workers are probably on welfare that he says he pays for.

Mr Schlossberg was videoed shouting "you are not a Jew " at a Rabbi who was at the protest, going on to say: "he's pretending to be a Jew and making other people feel that's what Jews think". While he seems to hate the idea of people speaking Spanish in the United States, he ironically lists that he can speak Spanish and can do a consultation in the language. Video from 2016 has also surfaced of the man apparently involved in another confrontation on a Manhattan street, where he calls another man an "ugly (expletive) foreigner".

In another video, the same man - who does bear great resemblance to the Fresh Kitchen customer - can be seen taunting a group of Jewish people with his middle finger.

Twitter sleuths are pointing to Manhattan lawyer Aaron Schlossberg as the man seen unleashing a racist rant at a NY deli in a viral video.

Defending champion Alexander Zverev needed eight match points before completing a 7-5, 7-6 (11) win over Kyle Edmund. Third seed Grigor Dimitrov did not have a birthday to remember as he fell 7-6 (4), 5-7, 4-6 to Kei Nishikori.

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

"They're yelling, they're claiming things that aren't true", Schlossberg said from the sidewalk. "Defaming me. I can't even move, because they're blocking me".

Yelp later said that it will work to "remove both positive and negative posts" on the site because it appears "to be motivated more by the news coverage itself than the reviewer's personal consumer experience with the business".

The video kicked off a mad dash in New York as reporters from the city's tabloid newspapers, the Daily News and New York Post, rushed to confront him about his statements.

The law firm has been receiving one-star reviews on Yelp in the aftermath of the incident.
