The video was shared on Friday (Aug 3) by a woman named Mercy Maduka, who was at the New Red Apple Nails on East Flatbush's Nostrand Avenue when the attack happened around 9:30 pm EST.

In the clip the woman claims one of the victims attacked in the salon paid for the manicure and pedicure she was happy with, but refused to pay the $5 for the botched eyebrow job, which led to the fight. Video of the attack was posted to social media and prompted protests outside the salon on Monday.

The crazed worker then starts beating the customer with a broomstick as she tries to calm the situation. When Lin called police, the salon workers tried to keep the customers inside the salon. Both were released on their own recognizance. "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". Thomas says that when she refused to pay for the eyebrow job that she thought was done poorly, an argument ensued and escalated. All you have to do is say "I'm sorry" and keep it going.

"What I'm here to do right now is to get justice for my 58-year-old mother, my 21-year-old daughter, that had acetone thrown on them and got beat with sticks like they are in the 1960s", Abby Moses, the mother of 21-year-old Christina Thomas-the customer involved in the fracas-said at the protest, according to the Times.

Meghan Markle sees Kate Middleton as a pillar of support
Thomas, 74, missed the Royal Wedding after suffering a heart attack but he said it might be better for Meghan if he died. The meeting reportedly yielded three solution options and if nothing works, Queen Elizabeth might get involved too.

The video was originally posted on Facebook by the witness. The service is below standards and they lack respect for people of color.

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

Jo Khan wrote, "Completely unprofessional and in poor taste".

The video shows salon employees striking one woman with a broomstick until she's able to flee out the front door. But the salon contends that she also refused to pay for the pedicure. Instead of making a compromise or including a 3rd party (police) to mediate they attacked them. And protesters had picketed outside the nail salon, accusing the Asian-owned business of disrespecting residents of the predominantly black neighborhood.
