The 'racist' lawyer who was caught on film ranting about Spanish people is being sued by a client

Talk about poetic justice.

You might remember Aaron Schlossberg, who unleashed a racist, expletive-filled rant against Spanish-speaking restaurant workers back in May 2018.

Well, he’s getting sued by a client for $50,000 (£39,455).

In a one-minute clip that went viral, he verbally attacked the Spanish workers for speaking Spanish, and threatened them with Immigration and Customs Enforcement – the infamous ICE.

Every person I listen to — he spoke [Spanish], he spoke it, she’s speaking it — it’s America!

He ranted: ‘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."

If 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 can do is speak English.

If you intend on running a place in Midtown Manhattan, the staff should be speaking English, not Spanish!

Now, Schlossberg, who the internet have dubbed ‘Racist Lawyer’, is being sued for bringing his client bad publicity.

Manhattan-based Niche Music Group, who hired him in January last year to represent them over a breach of contract claim against Sony Entertainment, New York Post reports, seem to have had enough of his racist ways.

Niche fired Schlossberg and have now filed a $50,000 (£39,455) lawsuit against the lawyer.

The recording label claim the lawyer ‘owed a duty’ to the label to:

To conduct himself in public in such a way as to not discredit himself or his clients.

The viral video resulted in Schlossberg being kick out of his Madison Avenue office and two politicians filing ethics complaints against him.

And back in May 2018, social justice group Millennials for Revolution also raised enough money through a GoFundMe campaign to send a mariachi band and taco truck to his house, which actually happened - and it was glorious.

Guess it’s expensive to be a racist.
