Jerk Videotaped Threatening To Call ICE On Two Women Speaking Spanish TO EACH OTHER — Obviously He's A

A white man, upset that employees at a NY breakfast restaurant were speaking Spanish, was recorded on Tuesday threatening to call agents from the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to detain the workers and otherwise ranting about the employees speaking a language other than English.

After other customers laugh at his antics and taunt him, with one telling him he's "fucked up", the angry man becomes even angrier.

Though the exact provenance of the word "Manhattan", which the man says during his rant, might be in dispute, it should be noted that it is derived from the Native American Algonquian languages, not English.

The man is seen complaining to the manager about the employees. "Take a break from the food", the man says before walking away, to which the woman responds, "Maybe you should get hit by a vehicle, you piece of [expletive]!" He's speaking it, she's speaking it.

'Your staff are speaking Spanish to customers when they should be speaking English - this is America, ' he ranted at the Fresh Kitchen manager. "He stormed out", the eatery manager said.

"I wish I was there because clearly this peace (sic) of shit need someone to punch him in his mouth!" he continued.


When confronted by an employee of the cafe, the man continued to yell at the women and threatened to call ICE. "That's what I did".

The video, uploaded to Facebook by Edward Suazo, has been viewed more than 1.8 million times since being posted on Tuesday, May 15.

"Your staff should be speaking English, OK?", he adds.

Speaking to the New York Daily News, the manager told the outlet that Schlossberg misread the situation, as a regular customer at the establishment was simply having a conversation with a Hispanic employee.

HuffPost reached out to Schlossberg, who did not immediately respond.
