A racist lawyer in Manhattan whose anti-immigrant rant at Spanish speakers went viral on Wednesday will soon be subject to the sounds of a mariachi band in his workplace after a crowdfunding campaign aimed at “countering hate and racism with the sound of music” reached more than double its goal.
Fundraiser Mark Goldberg raised more than $1,000 in just over half a day after Trump supporter Aaron Schlossberg was revealed to be the man captured on video screaming at Spanish-speaking employees in a Midtown Manhattan restaurant. The mariachi band the campaign’s founder contacted offered to go to Schlossberg’s law office for free, but the campaign raised enough to both cover their fee and provide tacos for everyone involved.
“We are requesting the band to sing the famous, endearing, and warm Spanish children song, La Cucaracha, the cockroach,” the campaign’s GoFundMe page reads. It also noted that the band will be recorded serenading Schlossberg — “provided building security does not kick them out.”
“Let us know when you want to raise funds to send Kebab to Trump officials in prison,” Goldberg wrote on the page.
