Urge Man to Apologize for Reported Verbal Assault of Bilingual Service Workers

Target: Aaron Schlossberg

Goal: Apologize for reported verbal attack on workers at Fresh Kitchen, Midtown.

A bit of Spanish conversation reportedly resulted in a lot of hate speech at Fresh Kitchen in midtown Manhattan. The café on Madison Avenue was the site of a reported verbal altercation between staff and Aaron Schlossberg. Bilingual staff members were chatting in Spanish and overheard by Schlossberg, who allegedly threatened to call immigration officers on the workers because they were not speaking English in his presence.

A part of the altercation was reportedly caught on film and has since gone viral. Schlossberg can allegedly be heard saying that the employees were in “my country,” as he suggested that the employees were illegal immigrants. “My guess is they’re not documented,” Schlossberg reportedly continued. “So my next call is to ICE to have each one of them kicked out of my country. If they have the balls to come here and live off my money—I pay for their welfare, I pay for their ability to be here—the least they can do is speak English.” Schlossberg has made no comment since the video was released online.

Sign this petition to urge Schlossberg to apologize for his alleged hurtful attack of Spanish-speaking employees.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Schlossberg,

Your reported outburst at Fresh Kitchen this past week was inappropriate, uncalled for, and based on personal bias. Bilingual individuals should not be forced to speak any specific language amongst each other. Furthermore, they should not be assumed to be un-American for their ability to speak more than one language. I urge you to apologize for the comments you reportedly made to the employees of Fresh Kitchen.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
