    Man berates employees and customers for not speaking English

    A man berated employees and customers for speaking Spanish in a New York restaurant, describing them as undocumented and threatening to call immigration officials in a rant captured on video.

    "Your staff is speaking Spanish to customers when they should be speaking English," the man says, holding a white iPhone and pointing at the Spanish speakers for emphasis. "Every person I listen to: He spoke it, he spoke it, she's speaking it. This is America!" he says.

    A former client identified the man to CNN as Manhattan attorney Aaron Schlossberg.

    The man continues to express his displeasure to an employee and threatens to call Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials. "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. "If they have the balls to come here and live off my money, I pay for their welfare. I pay for their ability to be here. The least they can do ... is speak English."

    People are calling for him to be disbarred.

    Definitely a skid mark on society.

    never understood this complaint. His complaint is that he had to "listen" to people speaking Spanish? If they aren't talking to him what difference does it make?

    well, from I've been told by people who speak different languages, sometimes they are talking about people who don't speak it.

    Especially, people like this guy.

    In some cultures it's considered rude not to speak English in the company of people who can't understand what you're saying.

    It seems from scanning Twitter that he's having more, with at least two separate news agencies approaching him in the street. One group were fended off with an umbrella, NBC he simply ran off down the road! Best so far is the Gofundme page set up to send him a Mariachi band serenade!
