New York - A young man who claimed in a drunk video to be the 'heir to half of Manhattan' is now working as a lowly intern in a Brooklyn office and has hired an attorney to sue the person who shot the video and posted it.
The student who boasted on a recent viral video that his dad “owns half of Manhattan,” and “owns the cops,” is now working away as a lowly intern in a Brooklyn court for a domestic-violence judge, sources say.
Gerry Shalam, whose rant earned him the online title of “New York’s biggest jerk,” was caught on video after emerging from the popular restaurant called Pranna recently, saying that, “Do you want me to call f–king Bill de Blasio on you right now? He’s a f–king liberal, but I’ll f–king call him.”
Shalam, whose dad actually is a garment-industry executive who lives in Allenhurst, NJ, is working for Brooklyn Supreme Court Judge Esther Morgenstern, according to a staffer for the judge. It seems that he could not get a job in Manhattan and it is doubtful that his father owns half of the borough of Manhattan.
Shalam has since hired an attorney after his bout with the now viral Youtube video and he is threatening to sue the man who shot and posted the video. Shalam is studying political science and government at NYU.
His attorney Darren Oved said in a statement approved by Shalam’s Allenhurst, NJ, family that, “This is a shameful exploitation of a young man who was clearly protecting himself and his friends from unwanted intrusions into their private lives at a vulnerable moment. Our client takes this blatant violation of his civil rights seriously and intends to take all appropriate measures to ensure that this video’s publishers and all those who have and continue to disseminate it are held legally accountable.”
Before Shalam shot to infamy as the “belligerent bloke on the block,” he appeared as the Scarecrow in the 2007 production of “Hip Hop Wiz,” based on “The Wizard of Oz,” that was a play that was set up for the benefit of the Jewish Community Center in suburban Deal, New Jersey.
