The man revealed to be a New York City attorney who was caught on video threatening to call U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on a customer and restaurant employee because they were speaking Spanish in America has apparently ranted similarly on camera before.
The New York Post obtained a video from vlogger Willie Morris from 2016 showing NYC attorney Aaron M. Schlossberg accosting him about his citizenship status and calling him an “ugly f***ing foreigner.”
“What country are you from?” Schlossberg asks.
The video cuts to Morris saying he is from Massachusetts.
“Well I’m a citizen here, you’re not,” Schlossberg says. “You’re an ugly f***ing foreigner, so f*** you.”
The Post also shared a video appearing to show Schlossberg defending President Donald Trump.
“He didn’t call Mexicans rapists. He said the people coming over here are rapists. But it’s true, you idiot!” the man in the video can be heard saying. “Some of them are! Some of them are!”
“You’re fat and ugly. That’s losing, that’s losing. Do I like I’m losing to you? I’m winning at life, you’re losing. I’m smart,” he also said.
In case you missed it, this was the video that got people digging for Schlossberg’s identity.

It’s now been viewed more than 5 million times.
In that video, Schlossberg can be heard saying things like “My guess is they’re not documented,” “I pay for their welfare,” “the least they can do is speak English” and “I’m calling ICE.”
The New York Daily News reported that a regular customer was speaking Spanish with a Hispanic employee and that’s what set Schlossberg off. The manager said Schlossberg was asked to leave and he stormed off.
“They were speaking Spanish because they are friends. He got mad, waiting in line for his food. He stormed out,” the eatery manager said. “He’s a customer, so I had to stay professional and ask him to leave. That’s what I did.”
As Law&Crime noted before, the legal profile for Aaron M. Schlossberg says he is “fluent in Spanish, conversational in French and has basic knowledge of Mandarin Chinese and Hebrew.”
As Rep. Adriano Espaillat (D-N.Y.) Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. have announced that they filed a complaint against Schlossberg, he continues to be swarmed by the press and is apparently receiving a bunch of 1-star Yelp reviews.
