A suspicious white powder was sent to the former office building of “racist lawyer” Aaron Schlossberg on Thursday, cops said — prompting a massive police response, complete with hazmat teams and counter-terror units.
The substance was sent in an envelope, which was addressed to Schlossberg and opened by two people, according to police.
The pair called 911 and were later checked out by paramedics at the scene. They displayed no symptoms and did not need to go to the hospital, according to cops.
As a precaution, authorities evacuated the entire 14th floor of 275 Madison Ave., where Schlossberg worked up until last week — when his racist tirade against Spanish-speaking restaurant workers went viral.
He had been using a business center in the building as an office address for his private law firm, but was given the boot over the video.
The two people who opened the envelope on Thursday were described by police as Schlossberg’s former co-workers. The NYPD’s COBRA Training Unit later deemed the floor safe and let people back in.
