Women brawl in a Brooklyn beauty salon

The clip was posted on Facebook by another customer at the salon and has been viewed over 200,000 times.

Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams released a statement on Monday, saying, "This morning, a constituent sent me video of Friday's incident at Flatbush's New Red Apple Nails salon".

The woman who initially posted video of the incident also said a patron refused to pay the salon because she felt the employee did not do a good job, prompting the fight.

According to witnesses and cops, the nail salon workers used broomsticks, fists, and dustpans on the customers before a civilian intervened. According to the New York Post, Huiyue Zheng was charged with assault and weapon possession.

She was later released following a hearing in Brooklyn Criminal Court.

Witnesses told PIX 11 that Thomas was attacked with brooms, dust pans and a liquid, allegedly acetone, the main ingredient in nail polish remover.

Later that evening, protesters marched to another nail salon that they say is owned by the same people. "Share this cause the cops chose to arrest the black people but not the Chinese people who ganged up on them- hitting them like animals". "[They are] hitting them like animals".

Police said Zhing was taken to the hospital before being arrested because of visible injuries to her face and body, PIX 11 reports.

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

She later posted the video on Facebook, where it has gone viral. The nail salon is gross and filthy.

"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. "I would give them a -1 if I could", Jude Watson wrote.

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. After the group refused the $5 fee for the service, employees blocked the entrance and held down one of the women. "We need to start supporting our own & run them out of our communities!" Protesters said they hope the salon will be shut down.
