The man's rant was caught on video by a fellow customer, and has since had more than 1.5 million views online. He says they were speaking Spanish to customers too, which if they were, assumes those customers also spoke Spanish. "This is America", the man said. They have the balls to come here and live off of my money? If you love this country this much!

The irate man continues his rant, saying, "I will be following up, and my guess is, they're not documented, so my next call is to ICE to have each one of them kicked out of my country".

"If you intend on running a place in Midtown Manhattan, the staff should be speaking English, not Spanish!" "They where on there [sic] lunch time and ordering there [sic] food and just because they where speaking in Spanish to the waiter this [expletive] jumps in and started to call the waiter and my wife and her best friend all types of names and threatened to call I.C.E on them and the employees!"

"I wish I was there because clearly this peace (sic) of shit need someone to punch him in his mouth!" he continued. You know where I'm getting!So please stop! "What a big man talking down to couple of women and a helpless employee".

A NY restaurant manager listens to a customer's condescending tirade, which was triggered by Latino staff workers speaking Spanish in his presence.

Primary Election Day in Oregon
Blackford County had 8,023 voters registered for the May 8 Primary Election, of which 28.83 percent of voters cast ballots. The May 15 election didn't have a presidential draw, and the top race on the ballot was for governor of Oregon.

After the video filmed on Tuesday went viral the man was widely named as Aaron M. Schlossberg, 42, a registered Republican who runs his own commercial law firm and boasts of being fluent in Spanish in his own work biography. "Take a break from the food", the man says before walking away, to which the woman responds, "Maybe you should get hit by a vehicle, you piece of [expletive]!"

The manager remained calm during the tirade and asked the man to leave.

"Your staff should be speaking English, OK?", he adds.

Speaking to the New York Daily News, the manager told the outlet that Schlossberg misread the situation, as a regular customer at the establishment was simply having a conversation with a Hispanic employee.

HuffPost reached out to Schlossberg, who did not immediately respond.
