This video posted Monday morning, has already gone viral. It was posted on Facebook by Edward Suazo. In it, this entitled white dude loses his shit because (I hope you’re sitting down now…) employees serving lunch were speaking in Spanish to customers who spoke Spanish.
According to Latino Rebels, here’s the transcript of what transpired. (Note the “take a break from the food” comment from him… fat shaming on top of racism.)
WHITE DUDE:…your staff are speaking Spanish to customers, when they should be speaking English.
EMPLOYEE: Sometimes they do…
WHITE DUDE: Every person I listened to. He spoke it. He spoke it. She’s speaking it. It’s America.
VOICE 1: It is America.
VOICE 2: That’s fucked up.
VOICE 1: He’s very ignorant, and he shouldn’t be allowed…
WHITE DUDE: So I will be following up, and my guess is, they’re not documented. So my next call is to ICE to have each one of them kicked out of my country. If they have the balls to come here and live off of my money. I pay for their welfare. I pay for their ability to be here. The least they can do, they least they can do is speak English… If you intend on running a place in midtown Manhattan, your staff should be speaking English, not Spanish.
VOICE 1: Because of people like you, our nation is fucked up…
WHITE DUDE: Honey, I’m calling ICE…
VOICE 1: Call ICE.
WHITE DUDE: Maybe you shouldn’t eat that sandwich today. Take a break from the food.
VOICE 1: Maybe you should get hit by a car, you piece of shit.
This edited explanation accompanied the video below when posted on Facebook,
“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 weren’t talking to you !! Asshole !
My country !! Haha
I love the way people are just throwing that world around lately !!“
Racist entitled white guys, they’re EVERYWHERE, apparently.
UPDATE: After Latino Rebels posted about the video, Shaun King was using Twitter to try and identify who this guy is….?
A Facebook friend found out he’s Manhattan attorney, Aaron M. Schlossberg. From his law firm bio, irony of all ironies,
“Mr. Schlossberg is a published author and a seasoned presenter. He is fluent in Spanish, conversational in French and has basic knowledge of Mandarin Chinese and Hebrew.“
They left out the fact he’s fluent is ASSHOLE too. We make jokes about frat bros. He actually is one –Alpha Tau Omega.
We are closer to identifying this horrible man. Clearly, his bigotry is not new or hidden. He has been seen being horrible before.
This is him last year in New York. https://t.co/mcfrjwgS0t
