Everyone is still trying to sort out what was happening inside a Brooklyn nail salon where a pretty wild melee took place with broomsticks flying during a beat-down after a customer allegedly refused to pay for a botched eye brow job, the NY Post reports.
Asian nail workers squared off against several Black woman as seen in a viral video posted on Facebook. The Asian woman converged on several women, beating one viciously in the back with what looks like a broom handle, witnesses and cops said. A man held another woman and would not let her go as the women continued their assault against her too.
Fists were flying, and one woman even used a dustpan in the dust-up at the New Red Apple Nails on Nostrand Avenue in Brooklyn.
According to witnesses, one woman was upset because her brow job was “f–ked up,’ (her words). A bystander not involved in the brawl took the video.
“So, I’m at the nail salon and they f–ked up a lady eyebrow and she refused to pay then a fight broke outttt,” explained Mercy Maduka in the video caption.
“Hitting them like animals,” she said.
A salon worker, Huiyue Zheng, 32, was arrested charged with assault and weapon possession, according to police.
A salon customer was arrested as well. Zheng was released from jail on her own recognizance after a hearing in Brooklyn Criminal Court, cops said.
Customer Christina Thomas was booked on misdemeanor assault and other charges. She was also released on her own recognizance, the Post reports.
The video now has more than 700,000 views with many on Facebook urged people to stop supporting the nail salon.
Facebook user Jasmine Johnson posted a video of a protest in front of the Brooklyn salon on Sunday. The shop was closed for the day and Johnson encouraged viewers of the video to continue protesting and boycotting the business.
