I personally think he deserves it.
I've personally been in situations where I tried to speak to employees to get assistance and they couldn't understand a word I said, much less help me with what I needed. I'm an American citizen and I have no obligation to learn Spanish just so I can communicate with employees. Would you say I deserve to have my life ruined for thinking that when people are employed by a business to interact with customers, they should be able to actually understand and communicate with those customers? You wouldn't move to China and then expect to get hired in a business in China without knowing a single word of Chinese, and yet any time an American says non-English speaking migrants working in the US should be able to speak English, they're treated like they're some kind of monster. It's fine if someone doesn't speak English, but it's not fine if they don't speak English when their job requires that they be able to communicate in English.

You should know English isn’t America’s official language. English is just our most common spoken language and Spanish is the second most common spoken language out of literal hundreds of languages spoken across this great nation.
That said, you don’t know if the employees don’t speak English. Chances they do and were just speaking Spanish because reasons.

Who actually pays attention to yelp? Who frickin' cares?!
I've paid attention to yelp reviews and regretted it every time.

We all know that speaking the truth in 2018 is an act of extreme bravery or extreme foolishness depending on your point of view. He wasn’t wrong, but that doesn’t make him right.
