Customers Mock Man’s Racist Tirade After He Threatens to Call ICE on Workers for Speaking Spanish

 
 
A white man was caught on video ranting about employees speaking Spanish to customers at a midtown Manhattan coffee shop — and threatens to call immigration officers on everyone.

The unidentified man is shown in a viral video complaining to an employee at Fresh Kitchen that he overheard workers using Spanish during an exchange with another customer.

“Your staff is speaking Spanish to customers when they should be speaking English,” the man says.

The employee says that his co-workers sometimes do that, but the man wasn’t satisfied, and pointed wildly around the room at everyone he overheard speaking Spanish.

Other customers laugh at the man and tell him he’s “f*cked up,” and he becomes angrier after he’s unable to find anyone to take his side.

“My guess is, they’re not documented, so my next call is to ICE to have each one of them kicked out of my country,” he says. “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 could do, the least they could do is speak English.”

He sputters angrily at the woman recording video of his tantrum and threatens to call immigration agents on her, too, and storms out of the coffee shop.

UPDATE: The man allegedly has been identified as Aaron Schlossberg.
