Footage shows botched eyebrow job lead to wild brawl in nail salon

One outraged woman, Jasmine Johnson, shared footage of herself taking part in a protest of the salon, which reportedly forced it to close for the day.

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 black women and the nail salon employees start pushing and shoving each other, causing the scene to devolve into chaos as one manicurist picks up a chair and begins swinging it.

As Thomas runs out of the salon another can be heard saying "What are you doing", leading to Zhing attacking her as well.

Customer Mercy Maduka who shot the video shared it with the caption: "So I'm at the nail salon and they [expletive] up a lady eyebrow and she refused to pay then a fight broke outttt Share this cause the cops made a decision to arrest the black people but not the Chinese people who ganged up on them‼️‼️ 1426 Nostrand ave Hitting them like animals ‍♀️". Maduka, who originally posted the video, wrote on Facebook, "Share this cause the cops chose to arrest the black people but not the Chinese people who ganged up on them". Protesters said they hope the salon will be shut down. Thomas says that she refused to pay for the eyebrow wax, News12 reports.

Huiyue Zheng faces charges of assault, menacing and criminal possession of a weapon, according to court documents.

The nail salon closed early Monday due to the protests. "They can not survive and we can not feed them", Johnson said in Facebook video capturing the protest.

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

Police told Pix11 that Zheng had been hospitalized and had injuries on her face and body. "If you pay for a service and you don't like a service, it's a $5 eyebrow". Thomas refused medical treatment, according to police. One person at the protest threw a bottle, hitting an NYPD officer in the back.

Meanwhile, the Facebook page for New Red Apple Nail salon has been flooded with negative reviews and backlash over the incident.
