Video taken in a Manhattan café showed a white attorney go on a racist tirade when an employee spoke Spanish to a customer on Tuesday.

The incident took place at a Fresh Kitchen on Madison Avenue. The anonymous woman who took the video told PIX11 News she was ordering her lunch when a man in a white button-down shirt complained to a manager about two employees taking lunch orders in Spanish.

When he heard the two workers speak Spanish, he went off.

“Every person I listened to, he’s spoke, he spoke, she’s speaking it. It’s America,” the man yelled at the manager.

The man then threatened to call U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement on the workers, who he accused of being illegal immigrants.

“And my guess is that they’re not documented so my next call is to ICE to have each one of them kicked out of my country,” he said. “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.”

  1. Social activist and writer Shaun King posted the video to Twitter and asked his followers to identify the man
  2. Soon after, the man was identified as Aaron M. Schlossberg, a New York business and commercial law attorney
  3. After Schlossberg was ID'd, someone trolled his office website on Google
  4. His past offensive behavior was also re-shared

    Several people made calls to Schlossberg's office, yet none were able to get through.
