After a tirade at a smoothie shop in which he called black people sluts, the financial adviser was fired.
The Connecticut financial adviser who was arrested and fired for allegedly going on a racist tirade in a smoothie shop is getting a lot of bad reviews on the web.
More than 1,000 people gave James Iannazzo, 48, a bad review on Google after he was caught on camera throwing a smoothie at a teenager and calling her a f—-ing immigrant in a crazy scene at a Robeks in Fairfield.
The only thing I would give it zero stars for is if I could. One reviewer said, "Enjoy being in the unemployment line while the "immigrants" are out and about making money."
"I wish I could be there to help. Some of the reviews said: "What a big man, yelling at three or four school girls." Another said: "Terrible guy! It's good he lost his job. I am taller than those girls! Disgusting.”
I would give him a 0 but my only choice is 1. "Stinky."
You can see the reviews for Iannazzo on the first page of Google when you search for his name, and he's listed as being a financial consultant. There is a business address in Stamford linked to Iannazzo and a lot of other Merrill Lynch brokers. They appear next to it.
He lost his job as a managing director at Merrill Lynch after footage of the wild encounter at Robeks just before 2:30 pm on Saturday started to spread around the internet.
Employees at the store are said to have started yelling at him when they couldn't say who made the smoothie.
Iannazzo said Monday that he went to the store after his 17-year-old son went into "life-threatening anaphylactic shock" and was taken to the hospital after drinking a smoothie that his father had bought for him.
He said he told workers that his son was allergic to nuts when he ordered the drink, even though workers told cops that he had just asked for no peanut butter.
People who were in Iannazzo's car say his actions were "wrong and I deeply regret them." He turned himself in to the cops after the accident.
If someone is intimidated by bigotry or bias, they can be charged with breach of the peace as well as criminal trespass.
