Aaron Schlossberg, a New York-based lawyer, became internet famous on Wednesday for the worst of reasons: a racist rant that went viral. Schlossberg was captured on a smartphone video yelling at employees in the restaurant Fresh Kitchen in midtown Manhattan. His complaint was that the workers were speaking Spanish to customers. "And my guess is they're not documented," Schlossberg said to an employee, who appeared to be a manager. "So my next call is to ICE to have each one of them kicked out of my country."
The internet has acted swiftly, his google and yelp reviews have plummeted from 5 stars down to 1 overnight, this man's career is likely finished, he will likely be disbarred.
But is it fair? Should his work life suffer because of his meltdown?
I personally think he deserves it.
Well I personally wouldn't hire him as a lawyer....doesn't seem like he'd be a very good one if he breaks down like that in a fast food restaurant.
“Mr. Schlossberg could be disciplined for this conduct but it will not lead to disbarment. A lawyer can be disciplined for conduct even if the conduct is unrelated to work for a client,” he said. “Factors a disciplinary committee will consider in deciding what if any discipline is warranted include extenuating circumstances and whether Mr. Schlossberg has prior discipline. If he does not, I think the most serious discipline he could face would be a private admonition if he has a clean record. That means the discipline will not become public,” he told the Forward.

Absolutely nothing he said is racist.
I just logged onto Yelp and gave the restaurant a one star review.

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

The average gas station attendant in the US today can understand 30 dollars regular but don’t ask for directions. They never give them any more. It’s not just Spanish either.

I saw him standing up for his country I don't see the big deal?

No it’s not. I’m not surprised a conservative assumes everyone’s a liberal and doesn’t know that English isn’t America’s official language.
