New York City’s racist-ranter was outed this week as Aaron Schlossberg, after he lost it with Latino workers, who were speaking Spanish to each other. While the rant was bad enough, the man took it to an even greater low by threatening to call immigration agents. The outburst has since gone viral, as have the details surrounding Schlossberg’s identity and his affiliation with the Bar Association.
The attorney, who is an avid supporter of President Donald Trump, has had multiple incidents of racist outbursts. According to New York’s NewsOne, the lawyer has come under the scrutiny of Yelp reviewers, who have ripped him for his behavior. Others have called for the lawyer to be disbarred.
In fact, Gothamist announced Thursday that New York Congressman Adriano Espaillat and Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. have now filed a grievance in court against the attorney.
“There is simply no place for the scourge of racism and the vulgarity of bigotry in our great nation,” the filing says. “Our country, a nation of immigrants hailing from countries around the globe, who have earnestly and diligently worked to make our nation extraordinary and worked to, as President Lincoln emphasized while quoting the Preamble to the Constitution during his first Inaugural Address, form a more perfect Union.”
“The audacity to profile and verbally assault innocent bystanders and customers in a public commercial location is a violation of our civil society,” the filing says. “We watched Aaron’s video and we were disgusted. We are filing this formal grievance to the State Grievance Committee because to affirm that such misconduct and behavior will not, and must never be tolerated.”
Ironically, the added attention has called into question Schlossberg’s background. His law office website advertises himself as “a member of the New York State Bar Association,” except, a phone call to the group revealed he is not.
“Mr. Schlossberg is not a member of the New York State Bar Association,” managing director Dan Weiller told NewsOne.
His website also claims that he speaks fluent Spanish, proving that the attorney might want to call ICE on Spanish speakers, but he’s happy to take their money if they seek his services.
