Video Shows New Angle On Brooklyn Nail Salon Fight As Protests Intensify

Viral Video Shows Brooklyn Nail Salon Workers Hitting Woman With A Broom

Customer Christina Thomas was booked on misdemeanor assault and other charges.

Mercy Maduka says she witnessed the fight, recorded it with her phone and posted the video to social media Friday - where it garnered hundreds of thousands of views. 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.

"Beside them getting hit with sticks, acetone was thrown on them", she added.

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

At Least 71 Shot, 11 Killed in Chicago in Weekend Violence

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.

One woman explained to the Times that the racial tensions underlying the incident had motivated the local community to come out in force: "The black community has been pushed aside for generations, and it just seems as if the longer time goes on, the more people think we're simply going to go away", said Alexis Regnier, a 33-year-old health worker from Midwood.

The Brooklyn District Attorney's Office says prosecutors are examining more video evidence and may alter the charges. But police were ready for protesters and were inside the business when they arrived at about 6:30 p.m. Thomas refused medical treatment, according to police.

Meanwhile, the Facebook page for New Red Apple Nail salon has been flooded with negative reviews and backlash over the incident. "That's it", Smalls told the New York Post.

The protester was in a crowd of about 50 people when he launched a bottle that struck a detective in the head at Martense Street and Nostrand Avenue at about 2:30 p.m. on Monday, according to police.

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. "We need to start supporting our own & run them out of our communities!"
