That lawyer from New York whose racist rant at a Manhattan eatery went viral earlier this week has reportedly been kicked out of his office space.
According to a report from the New York Post this Thursday, the company that operates the business center that housed Aaron Schlossberg‘s office has terminated their agreement with him.
“His actions are just not consistent with our community and rules and regulations,” Corporate Suites president Hayim Grant told the Post. “It’s totally contrary to everything we believe in as a company and personally.”
Mary Ann Georgantopoulos of BuzzFeed News confirmed the development in a tweet from Thursday.
“Hayim Grant, the president of Corporate Suites, tells BuzzFeed News the company has terminated its agreement with attorney Aaron Schlossberg, who used the company’s work space on Madison Ave as an office,” she wrote.

Schlossberg got instant internet fame after a video of him bashing Spanish-speaking employees in a midtown Manhattan restaurant went viral.
In the video, Schlossberg accuses the employees of being undocumented immigrants, and threatens to call ICE on them.
“My guess is they’re not documented,” Schlossberg said to one employee. “So my next call is to ICE to have each one of them kicked out of my country.”
The backlash online in the wake of the video’s circulation was huge. At one point, a GoFundMe campaign was launched to hire a mariachi band to play outside Schlossberg’s office. The campaign quickly surpassed its stated goal of $500.
