Attorney has no comment about racist rant caught on camera

A NY lawyer who went on a rant targeting Spanish-speaking restaurant workers is reportedly being kicked out of his office space.

Schlossberg seems to think that only undocumented immigrants on public assistance speak Spanish.

"Your clients and your staff are speaking Spanish to staff when they should be speaking English", he tells the manager. "They're all New Yorkers and they're all welcome here", de Blasio wrote yesterday afternoon.

Meanwhile, a GoFundMe campaign to send a a Mariachi band to play La Cucaracha in Schlossberg's law office has so far raised $1,029. "I pay for their ability to be here". After Twitter got ahold of it, users did what they do best and discovered Schlossberg was a lawyer in the city.

The footage shows a customer berating staff for speaking Spanish at the premises in Manhattan.

While other patrons were quietly observing in the background, Serrano and her friend defended the workers and called the man "ignorant".

While patronizing Fresh Kitchen in Manhattan's midtown area, Schlossberg overheard workers talking to customers in Spanish and that set him on a war path. a fellow customer filmed Schlossberg's rant on a camera phone.

This installment of lawyers behaving badly finds us in a New York Fresh Kitchen where a man, identified by Shaun King and our colleagues over at Dealbreaker as an attorney, goes on a racist tirade while ordering a sandwich - as one is wont to do.

"They're yelling, they're claiming things that aren't true", Schlossberg said as he hid behind the umbrella.

I will begin sharing them. Some publications, including CNBC and Pix11, named Schlossberg, who according to his law firm bio is fluent in Spanish.

Yelp later said that it will work to "remove both positive and negative posts" on the site because it appears "to be motivated more by the news coverage itself than the reviewer's personal consumer experience with the business".

Also. he was reportedly booted from his office space Thursday.

The Washington Post and the New York Times did not name the man after being unable to contact him for comment.

Also, Congressman Adriano Espaillat and Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. filed a complaint against Schlossberg to the "New York State Unified Court System's Departmental Disciplinary Committee - calling on the panel to investigate the attorney and possibly revoke his license", according to The Post.

On Thursday, around lunchtime, reporters tried to catch up with him and see if he still stands behind his statements.
