'This is America': Man who ranted against Spanish speakers gets internet-shamed

"The least they can do is speak English".

A white man's rant against employees speaking Spanish in a NY restaurant has gone viral as internet shaming exposes his ugly sentiments, further blowing America's racial issues wide open.

Summary: A NY lawyer went viral for all the wrong reasons when he freaked out on Spanish speakers at a lunch spot.

In the video, Schlossberg can be seen berating a worker, saying, "Your staff is speaking Spanish to customers when they should be speaking English".

Schlossberg once clerked for a state Superior Court judge years ago, and had a West New York address, according to public records.

A local mariachi band offered to play outside his office for free after someone started a fundraising campaign to hire one. I pay for their welfare.

Earlier this week, Schlossberg was filmed angrily complaining to a restaurant worker about the people speaking Spanish around him. Actually, there's a whole part of America that only speaks Spanish, and a lot of those people live in NY now. 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".

CBS explained it has similarities to Touched by an Angel , but in a more contemporary setting. CBS' Thursday night schedule next fall could be subtitled "Must-See Buffalo TV Night".

Aimes Enterprises chief Tom Major later told The Post he was totally unaware of Schlossberg's viral rant - and had never heard the attorney say anything racist.

Aaron Schlossberg is literally running away from his responsibilities after he was caught on camera sprinting from reporters who wanted to ask him about his rant he made against Spanish-speaking workers in a Midtown cafe.

The manager reportedly was angered by the man's comments but didn't want to yell back, according to the New York Daily News.

Ruben Diaz Jr, the Democratic Bronx borough president, joined Espaillat's complaint.

"On the other hand, Schlossberg may claim his conduct is protected by the First Amendment, which if true would prevent discipline", Gillers said in an email to NBC News.

And reviewers on Google suggested his law firm be identified as a "Mexican restaurant". The Yelp listing for his law office was so flooded with thousands of one-star reviews - it had more than 2,900 as of Thursday afternoon - that the company announced it was conducting a "cleanup" of reviews motivated by news and not experiences with the business itself.

Courtney, who is listed as an executive producer for 2015's "Beasts of No Nation", said Thursday morning he was also unaware of Schlossberg's outburst and didn't have any immediate comment on whether he will continue using his services. In another video, he allegedly shoved a pedestrian on the sidewalk then told him, "I'm a citizen here".
