Brooklyn Nail Salon Employees Assault Black Women After They Refuse to Pay for Bad Service

Brooklyn Nail Salon Employees Assault Black Women After They Refuse to Pay for Bad Service

However, the customers said they already paid for the pedicures.

Two women were arrested after a brawl broke out at a nail salon in Brooklyn.

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. The woman being hit is beaten on the back as she walks out of the salon. The first woman, who was able to escape, is her friend, and a third woman also being threatened with the broom was the unsatisfied customer's grandmother.

You can see two angles of the fight in the video below-one from the store's surveillance camera, and one taken by a bystander in the store at the time. But the salon contends that she also refused to pay for the pedicure.

According to the criminal complaint, nail salon worker Huiyue Zheng, 32, was charged with assault, menacing, harassment and weapon possession for the incident.

A harrowing video showing a group of nail salon employees attacking a black family in Brooklyn, New York has gone viral with many calling for the establishment to be shut down. All you have to do is say "I'm sorry" and keep it going. Christina Moses, 21, was also arrested on charges of assault causing physical injury, menacing and harassment.

Empress Ak wrote on Facebook, "I am standing with the elder who was thrown acetone in her face while her granddaughter was attacked".

The Brooklyn District Attorney's Office says prosecutors are examining more evidence and may alter the charges.

The video was posted on Facebook by another buyer who was inside the shop during the mayhem.

The Facebook and Yelp pages for New Red Apple Nail have been flooded with angry comments.

The Washington Post reports the incident has intensified racial tensions.

"There is no respect for people in this neighborhood", said 49-year-old Gavin Gibbs, a neighborhood resident, the New York Daily News reported. Several people held signs stating "Black $$$ matters" and chanted "black dollars matter".

"Until they open a soul food restaurant in Chinatown, we ain't eating over there", one woman tells the crowd.
