WATCH: New Yorkers Hold Latin Dance Party Outside Home of Lawyer Who Went on Xenophobic Rant
New Yorkers served up their own brand of Big Apple justice on Friday when they took to the street outside the home of Aaron Schlossberg and held a Latin Dance party.
Earlier this week, Schlossberg rose into internet infamy when he went on a xenophobic rant lambasting deli workers for speaking Spanish to each other.
It did not sit well with many in the city.
After the post went viral, Schlossberg found himself evicted from his apartment, chased down by reporters and on Friday night serenaded by a group of angry New Yorkers outside his Upper West Side home.
Videos from the scene show protesters dancing, singing, chanting “Hablamos Español!” and calling Schlossberg a “narcissistic dick.”
The event also featured an open mic to help counter the hate spread by Schlossberg’s rant.
