Neighbors are protesting an East Flatbush nail salon after police arrested a worker and a customer accused of brawling there.
In a video posted to Facebook, Mercy Maduka explained that she was paying a visit to the NY salon when a huge fight broke out over a so-called botched eyebrow. Both were released on their own recognizance. It's hard to tell who instigated the violence, but it appears to be the workers at the nail salon who are dealing the most force.
Local residents staged a protest at the nail salon on Sunday, with people posting several signs to the shuttered nail salon reading "Black $$$ matter", "They beat black women here", and "Don't spend here".
The person also notes that the fight stemmed from Thomas refusing to pay the salon because she felt the employee did not do a good job.
She also expressed her anger that the salon staff were "hitting [the women] like animals". Maduka, who originally posted the video, wrote on Facebook, "Share this cause the cops made a decision to arrest the black people but not the Chinese people who ganged up on them".
The video was originally posted on Facebook by the witness.
Police said Zhing was taken to the hospital before being arrested because of visible injuries to her face and body, PIX 11 reports.
Meanwhile, the Facebook page for New Red Apple Nail salon has been flooded with negative reviews and backlash over the incident. The service is below standards and they lack respect for people of color. Do not waste your money here.
The salon employees began to assault the three black women with broomstick, dustpans and their hands.
Empress Ak wrote on Facebook, "I am standing with the elder who was thrown acetone in her face while her granddaughter was attacked". But police were ready for protesters and were inside the business when they arrived at about 6:30 p.m.
