Two New York lawmakers filed a formal complaint Thursday against a Manhattan lawyer who was caught on camera ripping into a restaurant worker and customer for speaking Spanish and threatening to sic immigration authorities on them.
The move came a day after video of the attorney, identified as Aaron Schlossberg, went viral — and on the same day his face landed on the front page of the New York Daily News with a headline written in Spanish that the tabloid translated as “Screw you, idiot.” – LOL!!!
“What we witnessed in the vile video from Mr. Schlossberg, which has since gone viral, is a humiliating and insulting attack on the more than 50 years of progress that this nation has made since the civil rights movement,” Bronx Borough President Rubén Díaz Jr. and Rep. Adriano Espaillat, D.-N.Y., wrote in a letter to a New York attorney grievance committee. “We watched Aaron’s video and we were disgusted.”
