Jsouls Iannazzo, the “Karen’s husband” who was arrested after getting caught on a viral video launch into a violent and racist tirade speaking to a group of teenage employees at the Robeks smoothie store in Fairfield, Conn., lost their jobs as a top Merrill Lynch broker, all because Karens and their Ken-tlemen counterparts failed yet learned that cameras are everywhere and the Justice Sleuths on social media love nothing more than costing a fanatic their life.
So now Iannazzo and his attorney have issued a standard non-apology when a racist white person we’ve all seen demonstrate their clear and undeniable racism claims they’re actually not racist at all, just emotional. (I mean, I guess if “hangry” is an emotional description of hunger and anger, then “Klangry” might be an emotional description for when white people… well, you know.)

According to Advisor Huba Merrill Lynch spokesperson confirmed Iannazzo’s dismissal, saying “the company does not condone such behavior.”
“We immediately investigated and took action,” the statement continued. “This person is no longer employed in our company.”

Meanwhile, Iannazzo’s attorney, Frank J. Riccio II, said his client “wholeheartedly regrets” his actions, including throwing a smoothie at one employee and calling another an “immigrant loser.” “.
“When faced with a dire situation for his son, Mr. Iannazzo’s parental instinct kicked in and he acted out of anger and fear,” Riccio wrote. “He is not a racist individual and deeply regrets his statements and actions during a time of extreme emotional stress.”
As previously reported, Iannazzo– who has been charged with intimidation based on bigotry or bias, breach of peace and criminal trespassing leading to the incident – bought a smoothie for his son which allegedly contained peanuts , which caused an allergic reaction that led to the hospitalization of her child. Police say the teenage employees said Iannazzo never informed them of a peanut allergy and instead requested that peanut butter not be used in the smoothie.
Iannazzo said in his own statement, “I will personally apologize to Robek’s organization, especially the staff who worked there that night,” but it seems the apology comes with a side of “OK , but it’s your fault too,” because he insists he told employees about his son’s peanut allergy.
“I was scared for him when I went back to Robek, and I wish I hadn’t,” Iannazzo said. “I also wish they had been more careful in preparing my son’s drink.”
Ourrrr, maybe you shouldn’t have ordered a smoothie that was even related to peanuts rather than risk the possibility that all traces of peanuts and peanut-adjacent flavorings weren’t extracted.
Next time try a nut-free fruit smoothie, man.
Also, be less racist and less terrible.
