New York attorney Anthony Orlich learned actions that demean Black women do indeed have consequences. Lizzy Ashliegh posted a video on TikTok which showed her accusing Orlich of snatching the wig off her head as she walked around New York City. His ridiculously harmful behavior wound up not only costing Orlich his job, but Ashliegh filed a police against him as well.

In the video, Ashliegh asked him why he snatched her hair, but he never gives a response. “Sir, for what f**king reason? For what reason? For what reason did you take my wig off?,” she repeatedly yelled at Orlich. “Because what made you think that that was the good thing to do? For what? For what? Why did you do that?” she continued.

In the footage, Orlich’s friends try to get him to apologize for his actions but to no avail. The clip racked up over half a million views, with commenters telling Ashliegh to press charges against the lawyer. TMZ has reported that Ashliegh did indeed file a police report with the NYPD.

Per the outlet: “We’re told the crime alleged is misdemeanor assault ... and that Ashliegh is claiming to have suffered a minor injury to her neck. Our sources tell us Ashliegh declined medical attention when she filed the report — although, she claimed on social media she’s seen a doctor — and that her report triggered an investigation.”

Pardon my French but he needs one good ass whooping !!! 🤬🤬🤬

Additionally, internet detectives quickly went to work and found that Orlich worked as a litigator for Leader Berkon Colao & Silverstein LLP.His employee profile had instantly been removed from the site. Folks who were outraged on Ashliegh’s behalf also shared that they had been calling and emailing his job, demanding action be taken.

On Tuesday (May 30), the LinkedIn profile for Leader Berkon Colao & Silverstein LLP had been updated with a statement that Orlich no longer works for them.

“We have been made aware of a video of a non-work related incident involving one of our associates circulating on social media,” it said. “We take seriously any inappropriate behavior by any employee, whether inside or outside the workplace. This associate is no longer with the Firm.” Orlich messed around with a Black woman and found out that his harmful behavior led him to being jobless.

Hopefully, this incident will teach others to simply leave us alone.
