Nail salon brawl caught on video sparks protests in Brooklyn

One outraged woman, Jasmine Johnson, shared footage of herself taking part in a protest outside the salon, which reportedly forced it to close for the day.

The n0w-viral video shows a nail salon in chaos - a loose flip-flop on the floor, manicure stations pushed roughly to the side.

Two women were arrested after a brawl broke out at a nail salon in Brooklyn.

As Thomas runs out of the salon another can be heard saying "What are you doing", leading to Zhing attacking her as well.

Former UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage tweeted that Jones was " the victim today of collusion by the big tech giants ". At least, that's what his lawyer told a judge when Jones was embroiled in a custody battle with his ex-wife a year ago .

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. Maduka, who originally posted the video, wrote on Facebook, "Share this cause the cops made a decision to arrest the black people but not the Chinese people who ganged up on them".

She also expressed her anger that the salon staff were "hitting [the women] like animals".

Huiyue Zheng faces charges of assault, menacing and criminal possession of a weapon, according to court documents. At least one protester screamed, "where is ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement)?" implying that the salon's Asian employees might be undocumented immigrants. That's when the video shows the women in smocks turn toward two black women huddled against a wall.

"You can't treat us like we're second-class citizens", said one protester. Customer Christina Thomas was charged with misdemeanor assault and also released on her own recognizance. Thomas refused medical treatment, according to police.

Smoking banned in all public housing
The ban does not apply to e-cigarettes, snuff and chewing tobacco, although there may be restrictions on those in some areas. The rule will be part of leases, and residents will be required to sign amendments agreeing to abide by the ban.

There is a man holding one of the women as the workers attack at the New Red Apple Nails on Norstrand Avenue in East Flatbush. "If you pay for a service and you don't like a service, it's a $5 eyebrow".

"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.

Police had to escort the salon owners out of the business today as furious community members shouted around them.

On Monday evening, about 150 demonstrators marched about five blocks from the shop to the Beautiful Red Apple Nails salon at 1224 Nostrand Ave., which has a near-identical awning.
