Brooklyn nail salon workers beat customer over ‘botched’ eyebrow

When Lin called police, the salon workers tried to keep the customers inside the salon. She also expressed her anger that the salon staffers were "hitting [the women] like animals".

The incident at the Happy Red Apple Nail Salon happened Friday but the release of the video led to protests outside the salon on Monday. In it, the nail salon workers get into a fight with two customers.

According to Pix 11, Zhing faces charges of misdemeanor menacing, misdemeanor criminal possession of a weapon and harassment, while Thomas faces charges of misdemeanor assault, misdemeanor menacing and harassment. She was also released on her own recognizance. Protesters said they hope the salon will be shut down.

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. The women were dissatisfied with the service from the salon and ultimately, refused to pay $5 for a "f**ked up" eyebrow job.

According to the nail association, an employee told them Thomas refused to pay for any of the other services she received, telling CBS2 that altercation could have easily been avoided. "I said 'sit down, let me call the police".

"I'm not trying to die on my bday or go to jail", she wrote. Christina Thomas, who Zheng allegedly struck with a broomstick, also faces assault charges.

That effort included sifting through data from her cellphone, social media accounts and a Fitbit, a physical activity tracker. Police say Tibbetts was last seen wearing dark colored running shorts and running shoes.

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

The video now has more than 700,000 views with many on Facebook urged people to stop supporting the nail salon. Thomas refused medical treatment, according to police.

It was filmed by another customer who was inside during the mayhem.

Meanwhile, the Facebook page for New Red Apple Nail salon has been flooded with negative reviews and backlash over the incident. One sign read "Black $$$ Matter".

"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.

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