‘I’m Calling ICE’: Racist White Man Kicked Out Of Coffee Shop After Freaking Out Over Hispanic Employees
A video has emerged online showing an angry white man ranting about employees speaking Spanish to customers at a midtown Manhattan coffee shop — and threatening to call immigration officers on everyone. It backfired spectacularly.
The unidentified man is shown in a viral clip complaining to an employee at Fresh Kitchen that he overheard workers using Spanish during an exchange with another customer.
“Your staff is speaking Spanish to customers when they should be speaking English,” the man says.
The employee says that his co-workers sometimes do that, but the man wasn’t satisfied, and pointed wildly around the room at everyone he overheard speaking Spanish.
“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,” he says. “They have the balls to come here and live off of my money? I pay for their welfare, I pay for their ability to be here. The least they could do, the least they could do is speak English.”
Other customers reacted by laughing at the man and telling him he’s “f*cked up,” only to make the man angrier as he’s unable to find anyone to take his side.
He then sputters angrily at the woman recording video of his tantrum and threatens to call immigration agents on her, too, and storms out of the coffee shop.
