New York Daily News - - LOATHSOME IN ANY LANGUAGE - Janon Fisher

HIS­PANIC politi­cians gave a Bronx cheer Thurs­day to the xeno­pho­bic lawyer caught on cam­era be­rat­ing cus­tomers and work­ers about speak­ing Span­ish in a Mid­town restau­rant. U.S. Rep. Adri­ano Es­pail­lat (DBronx) and Bronx Bor­ough Pres­i­dent Ruben Diaz Jr. filed a for­mal griev­ance with a New York State court dis­ci­plinary com­mit­tee against Aaron Schloss­berg . “What was wit­nessed in the vile video from Mr. Schloss­berg, which has since gone vi­ral, is a hu­mil­i­at­ing and in­sult­ing at­tack on the more than 50 years of progress that this na­tion has made since the Civil Rights move­ment,” the of­fi­cials wrote to the state court’s First Depart­ment dis­ci­plinary com­mit­tee. A cus­tomer recorded Schloss­berg in Fresh Kitchen com­plain­ing about em­ploy­ees speak­ing Span­ish to other cus­tomers and col­leagues. “The au­dac­ity to pro­file and ver­bally assault in­no­cent by­standers and cus­tomers in a pub­lic com­mer­cial lo­ca­tion is a vi­o­la­tion of our civil so­ci­ety,” the pols wrote. “We watched Aaron’s video and we were dis­gusted.”
