Earlier in the week, attorney Aaron Schlossberg was caught on camera having a full-blown racial tirade in the middle of a Manhattan restaurant after he witnessed two employees speaking in Spanish.
In the video, Schlossberg is telling the staff that employees should not be speaking Spanish in America. Schlossberg claims he is going to call Immigration and Customs Enforcement on the employees of the restaurant.
The original video uploaded by Edward Suazo has received over 6 million views on Facebook, which led to Schlossberg being identified as the man in the video. Since being called out for his racial rant, Schlossberg has been kicked out of his office and has two complaints filed against him by two elected officials. The caption with the video reads as follows.
So my wife and her best friend Just experience what America is becoming !
They where on there lunch time and ordering there food and just because they where speaking in Spanish to the waiter this asshole jumps in and started to call the waiter and my wife and her best friend all types of names and threatened to call I.C.E on them and the employees !!!!
What a big man talking down to couple of women and a helpless employee. I wish someone tells me I can’t speak in my native language ! First of all they wasn’t talking to you !! Asshole !
My country !! Haha 😆
I love the way people are just throwing that world around lately !!
If you love this country this much ! Why don’t you put on uniform and protect it !!
If he was so offended because the waiter was speak in Spanish only because of a native person spoke to him in Spanish, why don’t he start waitering and he won’t have that issue and family stop getting Spanish nannies and stop getting Spanish people to farm and ………
You know where I’m getting !!
So please stop !! Because in the end you need them ! But what you need to do is stop trying to control us ! Slavery stopped a long time ago !!
U.S. Rep. Adriano Espaillat and Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. both wrote to New York state’s court system. New York has a grievance committee for attorney complaints.
An online petition for Schlossberg to be disbarred on change.org has received over 25,000 signatures. The campaign also has a link to file a grievance against Schlossberg. The petition reads as follows.
Aaron Schlossberg can be observed in a video harassing customers and employees at a restaurant in Manhattan over speaking Spanish, he then proceeded to yell at people (assuming their legal status in the United States) that he would be contacting ICE. Someone in position of power as an attorney, Mr. Schlossberg has demonstrated his inability to grasp the severity of his unethical behavior. You can actually watch him in action here:
So my wife and her best friend Just experience what America is becoming !They where on there lunch time and ordering…
Please stand up to racism and bigotry by signing and sharing this petition.
We are sending out a printout of the full petition to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, Governor Cuomo’s office, the Judiciary Committee and others that might be able to assist us with this process.
You can also take a stand by completing this form
Please print as many as you can so that the First Judicial Department may review his licensing. If you are planning on attending any events, take a few extra forms with you, if you need a form mailed to you I will gladly print it and send it your way.
Furthermore it would be really important for Mr. Schlossberg actions, past and present are reviewed to evaluate whether hate crimes have been committed and his ability to practice law should be suspended until such determination is made. http://ypdcrime.com/penal.law/article485.htm I would like to provide the district attorney’s office an opportunity to evaluate the situation and let us know.
Following the backlash, it is no surprise that people have been waiting for a response from Schlossberg. On Thursday, the shamed attorney was caught on video running from a cameraman with NBC after he failed to wave down a cab. NBC also claims Schlossberg has refused to give comment via phone and email. Outside of a Queen’s courtroom, PIX11 News attempted to receive a comment from Schlossberg, but the attorney walked away.
As it turns out, this is not Schlossberg’s first racial rant to receive attention online. On May 25, 2017, Schlossberg was caught on camera by Twitter user @Ike_Saul yelling antisemitic words at a protest against Linda Sarsour. Sarsour is an American Muslim political activist who was speaking at a CUNY graduation ceremony that day. Schlossberg can be heard yelling “You are not a Jew!” and “You’re an ugly fucking foreigner! Fuck you!” in the short video uploaded to Twitter.

In October 2016, Schlossberg was caught on camera verbally assaulting Willie Morris, a New York City tech consultant, and blogger. At the time of the incident, Schlossberg was a total stranger to Morris. “What country are you from? I’m going to call the police. You don’t run into me. I’m a citizen here, you’re not. You’re an ugly fucking foreigner. Fuck you,” Schlossberg says to Morris.
