America bases it's entire ethos on equality for all in the pursuit of happiness, what they missed out is the same can be said for racism. In the most recent showcase in the parade of racist incidents occurring in institutions of glutton, Aaron Schlossberg went on a (very well documented) racist rant in a Spanish restaurant. What're the odds?
The video quickly went viral. “Your staff is speaking Spanish to customers when they should be speaking English,” said Schlossberg. “My guess is they’re not documented,” he continued, pointing at the staff off camera. “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 is speak English,” he said, continuing his threats to call Immigration and Customs Enforcement and insulting a woman’s weight. He was told, in response, to go get hit by a car. Honestly, can racists come up with a better excuse for not liking people? The narrative is getting played out, in my opinion.
Critics of Aaron Schlossberg, a New York lawyer whose racist tantrum against restaurant workers speaking Spanish went viral, are getting their revenge.
They’ve posted so many negative reviews on his law firm’s Yelp listing that Yelp has had to intervene. The company says its policy for news making businesses is to remove posts “that appear to be motivated more by the news coverage itself than the reviewer’s personal consumer experience with the business”.
New reviews about the law firm that apparently slipped through the filtering range from ironically helpful—like how concerned New Yorkers can lodge complaints—to tabloid headline-like condemnations (and subtle sketch show references) such as “Ya done messed up now, A-a-ron!!”
Reporters and paparazzi swarmed the 42-year-old as he attempted to leave his apartment yesterday, leaving him so overwhelmed that he called the cops and accused a New York Daily News reporter of harassment.
“They’re yelling, they’re claiming things that aren’t true,” Schlossberg said as he cowered behind a black and red umbrella. “They’re grabbing my personal items. ... Defaming me. I can’t even move, because they’re blocking me.” An ABC News reporter confirmed that Schlossberg is no longer welcome in the building where he rents office space.
This is probably the result of critics quickly locating Schlossberg’s office listing on Google Maps - changing the business category to “Mexican Restaurant” and swapping a photo of the attorney for an image of a dog being hit in the face with a frisbee - and created a GoFundMe page raising “$500 to send a Mariachi band to cheer up the staff and attorneys at The Law Office of Aaron M. Schlossberg Esq. after a difficult day”.
Unsurprisingly, Schlossberg has a history of being a complete a**hole. Internet sleuths and activists dug up dirt on Schlossberg, including video of him calling someone an “ugly f**king foreigner” and photos of him in the company of noted pro-Trump trolls not to mention berating Jewish people for going on marches for Palestine. Talk sh*t, get hit...with the scorn of millions of Americans, united in their total disgust of you.
