Brooklyn Nail Salon Workers Attack Woman With Broom

Protesters stop a man from confronting police outside of a nail salon associated with the nail salon where a dispute took place

The n0w-viral video shows a nail salon in chaos - a loose flip-flop on the floor, manicure stations pushed roughly to the side.

A nail salon erupted in violence on Friday, with a grandmother and two other customers attacked with a broomstick, believed to be over an eyebrow wax gone wrong. "They are violent. I saw these workers beat up a woman, well more like jumped her".

Video posted on Facebook shows a portion of the knock-down, drag-out brawl at New Red Apple Nails on Norstrand Avenue in East Flatbush.

"So I'm at the nail salon and they f***ed up a lady's eyebrow and she refused to pay then a fight broke out", Maduka captioned the post.

Thomas and employee Huiyue Zheng were arrested, and the CANA says an employee told them Tomas refused to pay for any of the other services. She was released on her own recognizance after a hearing at Brooklyn Criminal Court, according to the Post. Ultimately, the three customers were treated like animals.

Police told Pix11 that Zheng had been hospitalized and had injuries on her face and body.

Shamile Smiley McBroom added, "Video of a grandmother and patrons being hit with brooms does not deserve service".

Trump acknowledges purpose of 2016 meeting with Russian lawyer
The lawyer told Stephanopoulos that discussions over whether the president should sit for an interview with Mueller are "ongoing". Last July, Sekulow had said the president "didn't sign off on anything" in regards to the Trump Tower meeting .

"We don't need to protest, we need to financially castrate this business".

Facebook user Jasmine Johnson posted a video of a protest in front of the Brooklyn salon on Sunday.

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

Since the fight, hundreds of negative reviews, often referencing the incident, have been left on the salon's Yelp page.

"There is no respect for people in this neighborhood", Gavin Gibbs, a 49-year-old East Flatbush resident, said to the New York Daily News. "We need to start supporting our own & run them out of our communities!"

The incident has inflamed racial tensions, and prompted calls for black residents to spend their money elsewhere.
