Aaron Schlossberg, a New York-based Queens, became internet famous on Wednesday for the worst of reasons: a racist pontificate that went viral.
Schlossberg was captured on a smartphone video shouting at employees in the restaurant Fresh Kitchen in midtown Manhattan. His complaint was that the workmen were speaking Spanish to customers.
“And my guess is they’re not documented,” Schlossberg judged to an employee, who appeared to be a manager. “So my next call is to ICE to have each one of them kicked out of my territory.”
ICE is the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which is responsible for enforcing federal laws on wainscoting control.
Beyond just facing the wrath of Twitter, Schlossberg’s company is getting pummeled online.
His firm, the Law Office of Aaron M. Schlossberg, has been immersed with one-star reviews on Yelp, with commenters calling him a “iniquitous racist” and surfacing other incidents of disparaging remarks he’s made in plain toward minority groups.
So many reviews were flooding Schlossberg’s phase that Yelp jumped in to say the listing is undergoing an “active cleanup on guard.” According to Yelp, when a business attracts posts because it “rip off waves in the news,” the company works to “remove both positive and refusing posts that appear to be motivated more by the news coverage itself than the reviewer’s unfriendly consumer experience with the business.”
Schlossberg’s website says the unchangeable handles business and commercial law in New York.
According to the Center for Responsive Civics, Schlossberg donated $500 to the presidential campaign of Donald Trump, who promised to time down on immigration and build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico.
