Everyone Is Looking For This Man Who Had A Complete Meltdown Over People Speaking Spanish
With Donald Trump in office, discrimination and violence is on the rise. In fact, a lot of it is government-funded. The Immigration and Customs Enforcement office have hugely increased arrests since he took office, entering schools, homeless shelters, domestic violence court cases, hospitals. This viral video horrifying people shows what happens when a huge Trump supporter thinks he can turn the power ICE has to destroy people’s lives to his own petty uses.
Activist Shaun King shared a video taken at a Fresh Kitchen in midtown Manhattan of a man having a total meltdown because two workers were speaking to one another in Spanish.
Who this this bigot in Midtown Manhattan? What’s his name?
Please share this.
Here he is harassing & insulting two women for speaking Spanish…TO EACH OTHER in the middle of Manhattan.
Trump has empowered ugly white people like this to say whatever they feel like saying. pic.twitter.com/WbHlet6H7c

He escalates into saying they’re probably undocumented and supported via his tax dollars by welfare. Yes, they’re clearly employed, but this racist won’t be defeated by logic.
He then threatens to call ICE on them, again, for the “crime” of speaking a second language. He tops it all off by calling one of the women fat.
The video is horrifying for so many reasons, it’s hard to choose just one.
Racism. Sexism. Homophobia. Religious intolerance. Xenophobia. Ageism. Ableism. They can all get in the bin. Imagine living in NYC and freaking out about people speaking Spanish to one another. Imagine calling the cops on people having a BBQ on a Sunday afternoon. What the hell?!

But it didn’t take long for the dude to be discovered. King alleges that the man is an attorney named Aaron Schlossberg, and his day just took a turn.
Please let Attorney Aaron M. Schlossberg of Midtown Manhattan know I’m trying to get in touch with him. I have a few questions.
If you reach him, ask how often he eats at the Fresh Kitchen next door to his office and if he has a problem with people speaking Spanish there. pic.twitter.com/8pgQ6wZNzi

RIP your mentions.
So you screaming at Spanish speaking people who weren’t even talking to you?
You accused them of being on Welfare, even though they are working? And you offer Spanish speaking services for your work?
I think this means that Spanish speaking people paid for that sandwich.

To anyone who is looking for a racist lawyer who can’t control his emotional outbursts and linguistic frustrations, look no further! Aaron is your guy!

This sort of viral fame isn’t great for business, either.
Man….you are sooo being famous for the wrong reasons. Also thanks for giving any disgruntled client easy evidence of your racism and bias. It will make their claims of bad representation very, very easy.

Can’t wait to see your Go Fund Me page, where you cry about the mean libtards who cost you your career. You should be ashamed of yourself but we all know that requires having a conscience so it’s never going to happen. You deserve every bad thing coming your way.

I cannot believe you’re a lawyer and you berated people ON CAMERA no less, near your own office. Besides being a dipshit and a bigot you’re also incredibly stupid. Time for you and your MAGA hat to move back to whatever shitty suburb youre from. NYC doesn’t want you 👋👋

A lot of people were reminded of the recent video of a white woman who called the police on a group of black people barbecuing food in Oakland.
How do you feel about black people having cookouts? I feel like there is a clear opportunity here for some lovely MAGA matchmaking.

Is the white lady who called the police on the black men who were barbecuing your mother? Your sister? Your bff?

Some people said they were surprised that someone who lives in Manhattan could be so shocked and horrified by someone speaking Spanish, but racism is everywhere:
Unfortunately there’s a lot of these types of men in Manhattan & I hope he’s exposed

Yeah, I worded it weird… limited characters lol. I’m just appalled you can live in a major city like NYC and be surprised people speak other languages? I wonder how often this dude goes off on innocent people about this.

It happens here quite often, more so now that Trump has been elected.

I’m a first generation Afro-Latino and I remember people being less bold about racism then now. Feels like it is more intense now.

The man in question has possibly ripped the phone cord out of the wall by now, since he may have an anger-management problem. Yet, he’s still safer than all of the men, women, and children in the hands of ICE. And that’s Trump’s America.
