Another angry white male is going viral for berating non-white people, this time at a Midtown Manhattan lunch chain on Wednesday.
A video making the internet rounds shows a man threatening to call Immigration and Customs Enforcement on the eatery’s employees because he overheard them speaking Spanish to customers. The poor guy was angry because he doesn’t like to hear Spanish being spoken in “my country.”
“Every person I listen to—he’s speaking it, she’s speaking it. This is America,” the man shouted, missing the irony of what he just said.
So my wife and her best friend Just experience what America is becoming !They where on there lunch time and ordering there food and just because they where speaking in Spanish to the waiter this asshole 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 !!!!What a big man talking down to couple of women and a helpless employee. I wish someone tells me I can’t speak in my native language ! First of all they wasn’t talking to you !! Asshole !My country !! Haha 😆 I love the way people are just throwing that world around lately !! If you love this country this much ! Why don’t you put on uniform and protect it !!If he was so offended because the waiter was speak in Spanish only because of a native person spoke to him in Spanish, why don’t he start waitering and he won’t have that issue and family stop getting Spanish nannies and stop getting Spanish people to farm and ………You know where I’m getting !!So please stop !!

As a person identified as the manager of the establishment confronted him, he continued: “Your clients and your staff are speaking Spanish to staff when they should be speaking English…My guess is they’re undocumented, so my next call is to ICE to have each one of them taken 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.”
According to Gothamist, although the man has not been identified, some Twitter users are claiming he’s been seen at various Trump rallies.
The video was uploaded to Facebook by Edward Suazo, who said that he and his wife were confronted by the man as they were talking to the cashier.
Speaking to Gothamist, a witness said the man was thrown out of the restaurant after his tirade.
