Aaron Schlossberg's tirade against Spanish-speaking restaurant employees in New York City on Wednesday was caught on a smartphone video and has gone viral – prompting massive social media backlash for the Manhattan lawyer.

Schlossberg appeared to launch into an angry rant at a Fresh Kitchen location when he overheard the restaurant's employees speaking to customers in Spanish.

"Your staff is speaking Spanish to customers when they should be speaking English," Schlossberg said to a man who appeared to be the manager, per The Hill.

"Every person I listen to — he spoke it, he spoke it, she's speaking it. This is America!"

Schlossberg then said he didn’t believe the Spanish-speaking employees were documented.

"So my next call is to ICE to have each one of them kicked out of my country," Schlossberg said.

"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."

The incident was captured by Edward Suazo, who shared the video footage on a Facebook post and explained that his wife and friend were at the restaurant, ordering their lunch in Spanish from the waiter, when Schlossberg confronted them and launched into the tirade.

The rant drew heavy criticism for Schlossberg as well as his business, the Law Office of Aaron M. Schlossberg, which has been flooded with one-star reviews on Yelp, USA Today reported.

As news of his rant spread, Twitter users have been digging up dirt on Schlossberg. One person uncovered that Schlossberg once reportedly studied abroad in Spain. The Interceptor columnist Shaun King meanwhile claimed he had received 13 reports of people being "targeted & harassed by Attorney Aaron Schlossberg throughout New York City from 2015 until this week." Others took to social media to air their views on the matter.
