Protesters spite racist lawyer with live Mariachi band outside home

A Mariachi band triumphantly played at a protest Friday outside the home of the Midtown lawyer caught on camera hurling racist insults at Spanish-speaking restaurant workers.

More than 100 people gathered in front of Aaron Schlossberg’s abode on West 60th Street near 10th Avenue to wave signs, chant “Ole, Ole! Throw him out!” and feast on free tacos.

“We’re basically clapping back at this fool,” said Chris Thompson, 40, an electrical engineer from Manhattan, who believes the lawyer should be disbarred.

“[It’s] ridiculous! This is a multilingual city. He should expect to hear different languages.”

On Tuesday, Schlossberg, 42, was caught in a hate-filled rant, threatening to have restaurant workers “kicked out of my country” for speaking Spanish at Fresh Kitchen on Madison Avenue near East 39th Street.

“Without the Latinos there wouldn’t be a hospitality industry [in New York.] How dare this mother f—ker. How dare he,” said protester Stratis Morfogen, 50. “He should be disbarred.”

The social justice group Millennials for Revolution raised $1,094 on a GoFundMe page to provide the band and tacos for the protest, a member of the group said.

A five-man Mariachi band, dressed in silver and black suits, arrived on a bus and played songs with trumpets, two violins and an acoustic guitar.

One band member, Alvaro Paulino, said, “I support my fellow immigrants. My family are immigrants.”

Duck and plum sauce tacos were donated by Jade Sixty, an Upper East Side Asian steakhouse.

In the viral video, Schlossberg is shown in a tirade threatening to call immigration officers on the restaurant workers. “Every person I listen to — he spoke [Spanish], he spoke it, she’s speaking it — it’s America!” he shouted.

“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 raged. “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 be here — the least they can do is speak English.”
