NEW YORK POST:
A Midtown lawyer was caught on video yelling racist comments at Spanish-speaking restaurant workers — and threatening to call immigration officers to have them “kicked out of my country.”
The nearly minute-long viral clip picks up with the unhinged man (right) railing, “Every person I listen to — he spoke [Spanish], he spoke it, she’s speaking it — it’s America!”
The tirade happened in the Fresh Kitchen on Madison Avenue near East 39th Street Tuesday afternoon, according to Edward Suazo, whose wife recorded the video when she and her friend were targeted by the man.
The two women were ordering lunch and speaking Spanish with a worker helping them when the creep butted in.
“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,” seethed the man, who reportedly works as an attorney in the area.
“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!”
After giving the worker an earful, the boor turned his attention to the woman recording the meltdown.
