The New York Daily News reports:
How do you say sorry in Spanish? Aaron Schlossberg, the hate-spewing lawyer caught on viral cell phone video threatening to report restaurant works to immigration officials for speaking Spanish, issued an apology on Twitter Tuesday.
Schlossberg railed against Spanish speakers inside Fresh Kitchen restaurant on Madison Ave. on May 15. “My next call is to ICE to have each one of them kicked out of my country,” fumed Schlossberg.
“If they have the balls to come here and live off my money — I pay for their welfare, I pay for their ability to live here. The least they can do is speak English,” he yelled.
His full message:
To the people I insulted, I apologize, seeing myself online opened my eyes — the manner in which I expressed myself is unacceptable and is not the person I am. I see my words and actions hurt people, and for that I am deeply sorry.
While people should be able to express themselves freely, they should do so calmly and respectfully. What the video did not convey is the real me, I am not racist. One of the reasons I moved to New York is precisely because of the remarkable diversity offered in this wonderful city.
I love this country and this city, in part because of immigrants and the diversity of cultures immigrants bring to this country. Again, my sincerest apologies to anyone and everyone I hurt.
