Protesters picket nail salon after viral video shows employees attacking Black customer

Activist Jasmine Johnson, who posted video and photos of the protest to Facebook, said one of the employees threw acetone, which is used in nail polish remover, at the women.

Calls to close a Brooklyn nail salon are growing louder Monday, days after video was shared online apparently capturing employees attacking patrons with brooms, dust pans and, allegedly, acetone. In it, the nail salon workers get into a fight with two customers.

"She said she didn't like it and does not want to pay for nothing", Lin was quoted as saying. Both were released pending a court appearance.

The salon employees began to assault the three black women with broomstick, dustpans and their hands.

The person also notes that the fight stemmed from Thomas refusing to pay the salon because she felt the employee did not do a good job.

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. "I said, 'Sit down, let me call the police".

Police said the fight broke out Friday night after customer Christina Thomas complained about her eyebrow service and refused to pay $5.

Zhing was hospitalized with visible injuries to her face and body, and Thomas refused medical attention, according to police.

Whether that works might become apparent between Monday's sanctions and the sanctions set be reimposed in November. Since the 1979 Islamic Revolution, Iran has cast itself as standing up to the USA with fierce opposition.

A protest was held outside the salon on Monday morning.

The Facebook and Yelp pages for New Red Apple Nail have been flooded with angry comments.

"I'm expecting justice, but most of all I'm expecting black people to learn that when these business don't respect you, you don't spend your money with them", one protester, Tionna Smalls, told ABC7 NY.

One demonstrator hit a police officer in the back after throwing a bottle.

Meanwhile, surveillance video obtained by the New York Daily News showed an employee walking up to two women with two fellow staffers standing behind him - both of them holding brooms.

"Anytime a store does not respect us, we're going to shut it down".

The ordeal has also sparked protests against the nail salon.
