Residents petition for closure of nail salon after brawl

Brooms fly after botched eyebrow job causes brawl

A brawl took place at New Red Apple Nail in East Flatbush Friday night. But police were ready for protesters and were inside the business when they arrived at about 6:30 p.m.

Reports say that the protests are racially tinged. However, the customers said they already paid for the pedicures.

Witness Mercy Maduka, who posted a widely-shared video of the incident on Facebook, said the fight was sparked by a bad eyebrow job: "So I'm at the nail salon and they fucked up a lady eyebrow and she refused to pay then a fight broke outttt", she wrote, saying the employees hit the customers "like animals".

"She had practically all her eyebrows gone", her mother said. She says 'I don't like it.

It wasn't immediately clear if the two salons are related. When Thomas breaks free and tries to flee for the door, another employee can be seen bashing her in the back with a mop or broom handle. From there, one of the employees, Huiyue Zhing, attacks Thomas with a blue broomstick.

"They're not supposed to fight like that, for both sides that is totally wrong", a representative from the association said.

According to News12, the salon closed for the rest of the day. Protests have since brought awareness to the racial undertones of the incident. Some protesters urged black residents in the neighborhood not spent their money at the salon. "Black $$$ Matter", one home-made sign read. "That's it", Smalls told the New York Post. "We need to start supporting our own & run them out of our communities!" "We will come, we will picket it and we'll do whatever we have to close your store down".

A spokesperson for the Brooklyn district attorney's office says they are in the process of examining all of the evidence, including videos that were not available at the time of the arraignments.

"The black community has been pushed aside for generations, and it just seems as if the longer time goes on, the more people think we're simply going to go away", said 33-year-old Alexis Regnier, the Times reported.

The salon was open on Monday but no one was inside.
