According to the New York Daily News, the viral video was filmed on Friday at the New Red Apple Nails salon on Nostrand Ave in East Flatbush. Facebook user Mercy Maduka uploaded the video with the accompanying caption:
“So I’m at the nail salon and they f*cked up a lady’s eyebrow and she refused to pay, then a fight broke out.”
The video shows the nail salon employees surrounding a woman and attempting to restrain her while one of the workers attack her with a blue broomstick. Another customer yells at the workers, saying: “What are you doing!” She also gets hit with the broom handle. Footage also shows the nail salon workers spraying acetone in the customer’s face.
Police caught and charged Huiyue Zheng, 32, with assault and weapon possession. Zheng was freed on Saturday after her hearing in Brooklyn Criminal Court due to personal recognizance.
Customer Christina Thomas was also picked up on misdemeanor charges but was also freed based on personal recognizance.

(1426 Nostrand Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11226), where they got their nails and feet done, and eyebrow waxing. All of the services were paid for but the grandmother was unsatisfied with her granddaughter’s eyebrows, so she refused to pay the $5. After refusing to pay for just the eyebrows, the grandmother and her granddaughters were beaten with metal rods by the employees of the salon and Acetone thrown into their eyes. The employees called the police on the women and they were arrested. • • • • • #repost #balleralert #nailsalon #newyork #brooklyn
