A Merrill Lynch financial adviser from Connecticut who was arrested for allegedly throwing a smoothie at a teenage employee — calling her a “f–king immigrant” — has been fired after footage of his racist rant went viral.
James Iannazzo, 48, was arrested and charged with a hate crime following the chaotic scene at Robeks in Fairfield just before 2:30 p.m. Saturday, the Fairfield Police Department said.
The wild encounter erupted after an irate Iannazzo returned to the store after earlier ordering a smoothie that supposedly contained peanuts, which caused his highly allergic son to have a reaction and require hospitalization, authorities said.
According to cops, Iannazzo ordered the drink without peanut butter — but didn’t mention to employees that his son had an allergy.
