Cops and firefighters descended on racist lawyer Aaron Schlossberg’s former Midtown office Thursday after someone mailed the attorney an envelope filled with white powder, police said.
The letter, addressed to Schlossberg, was delivered to the Madison Ave. building at E. 40th St. at about 3:30 p.m., police said. The powder spilled onto two people.
Firefighters and NYPD counterterrorism officers arrived, but the powder was deemed harmless and no one was injured, cops said.
Police are trying to track down the sender.
Schlossberg, 42, was caught on a cell phone video that went viral ranting at the workers at Fresh Kitchen on Madison Ave. on May 15, because he heard them speaking Spanish.
“So my next call is to ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) to have each one of them kicked out of my country,” fumed Schlossberg. “If they have the balls to come here and live off my money — I pay for their welfare, I pay for their ability to live here — the least they can do is speak English,” he yelled.
After Schlossberg’s outburst was exposed, the landlords at his office building said he was no longer welcome inside.
“Effective immediately, Aaron M. Schlossberg will no longer be allowed access,” read a letter printed in all caps and posted May 17 outside 275 Madison Ave.
Two men who work in the office tower, were sickened by the brash barrister’s antics, but said whoever sent the powder went too far.
“It was sent to where a lot of people work,” said Shaheem Walters, 23.
Protestors gathered outside the office building and Schlossberg’s W. 60th St. apartment building in the days after the taunting tirade.
About 500 people gathered outside Schlossberg’s home Friday, many waving flags from Mexico, Colombia and Puerto Rico, while a five-piece mariachi band played “La Cucaracha.”
On Tuesday, a week after bigoted blunder, the angry attorney tweeted an apology.
