Protesters on Friday asked for the disbarment of attorney Aaron Schlossberg. They sang along with the mariachi band and carried signs that read “Se habla Spanish” and “Racism, no Bueno.”

Protesters and the band also gathered outside an apartment building on West 60th Street where Schlossberg reportedly lives.
A video clip of Schlossberg yelling at people for speaking Spanish in a Manhattan restaurant sparked widespread outrage on Wednesday. Schlossberg hasn’t responded to calls seeking comment.
It’s unlikely Schlossberg heard the serenade. The company that runs the building Schlossberg uses as his law firm’s address says his agreement with it has been terminated because his actions “were contrary” to its regulations.MORE NEWS: Fire Tears Through Idlewood Industries Building In Beaver County
