Bank of America Ousts Adviser After Viral ‘Immigrant Loser’ Rant

  • Video of insults at a smoothie shop went viral on social media
  • Police say he confronted staff after son’s allergic reaction

Bank of America Corp. ousted a financial adviser after police charged him with bigotry over a smoothie shop tirade that was caught on video and viewed millions of times on social media over the weekend.  

The Saturday incident at a Connecticut Robeks outlet began when James Iannazzo ordered a drink without peanut butter for his son, who has a peanut allergy, according to a statement from the Fairfield Police Department. He left the store, but returned to confront employees after his son had an allergic reaction that sent him to the hospital, police said.
