Shaun King tweeted a video and call to action for people to help identify a woman seen in a video calling a African-American man a “monkey” and then, in an expletive laden rant, tells him to stop filming her and then spits in his face.
She’s being called #SalivaSally on social media.
“We found the bigot Aaron Schlossberg together,” King says referring to the New York City lawyer who launched a racist rant at employees in a Manhattan restaurant because they were taking orders in Spanish. After King posted the Schlossberg video, followers and others on social media identified Schlossberg.
“Now we need her name,” King tweeted late Friday afternoon.
“Not only did she call this Black Man a monkey, she spit right in his face,” King wrote, adding that spitting at a person is “criminal assault.”
King identifies the eatery where the video was taken as being in the tony SoHo neighborhood of lower Manhattan. SoHo standing for south of Houston Street.
King says the restaurant is called the Paris Baguette.
The company posted on Twitter it was upset over the incident which happened Thursday. They said the franchise owner called police.
King was undeterred: “Let’s do this,” King tweeted. “What’s her name?”
In the Schlossberg video, the lawyer who advertised he speaks Spanish, tells a staffer at the Fresh Kitchen employees should speak English. “…every person I listened to, he spoke it, he spoke it, she’s speaking it, it’s America. Your staff should be speaking English, not Spanish.” People in the restaurant were not having it and told Schlossberg so and as he starts to leave the restaurant, he said, “My guess is they are not documented. So my next call is to ICE to have each one of them kicked out of my country. If they have the balls to come here and live off of my money, I pay for their welfare, I pay for their ability to live here. The least they can do is speak English. If you intend on running a place in Midtown Manhattan your staff should be speaking English, not Spanish.”
And while holding up his phone and gesturing as if he’s about to make a call said, “Honey, I’m calling ICE.”
Once Schlossberg was identified and outed for his racist behavior, he hid from the public. But the public found him. Again. And again.
And then a mariachi band showed up at his building.
This is a developing story.
