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.
Joe Scarborough can sue for defamation — and ‘it could require Mr. Trump to pay substantial punitive damages’: Legal expert
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough may have a defamation case against President Donald Trump, according to one legal expert.
Peter Schuck, an emeritus professor of law at Yale and visiting professor at the University of California, Berkeley, laid out the case against the president in a new column for the New York Times.
"Trump’s wantonly cruel tweets about the tragic death in 2001 of Lori Klausutis are distinctive," Schuck writes. "They may constitute intentional torts for which a civil jury could award punitive damages against him."

Trump’s tweets have ‘deteriorated’ because he knows he faces ‘landslide defeat’: Financial Times columnist
President Donald Trump's tweets have grown even more erratic than usual lately, as he has promoted baseless murder conspiracy theories about MSNBC host Joe Scarborough and even a video that proclaims "the only good Democrat is a dead Democrat."
Financial Times columnist Edward Luce believes he knows the reason that the president has become more unhinged: He knows that he's "courting a landslide defeat" in the 2020 election.
