Customers attacked with brooms after dispute over botched $5 eyebrow wax

"They can not survive and we can not feed them", Johnson said in Facebook video capturing the protest.

Staff at a nail salon in East Flatbush, Brooklyn, mercilessly beat up a woman after she refused to pay for a spoilt eyebrow job.

Protesters tried to shut down a Brooklyn nail salon Monday after its employees were caught on camera beating a customer.

"I'm not trying to die on my bday or go to jail", she wrote.

The salon was open for business on Monday but closed early, with police escorting workers to a waiting van.

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. The customer said she paid something, but the store's owner said she refused to pay any of the money she owed. The woman being hit is beaten on the back as she walks out of the salon.

Surveillance video released by the Chinese American Nail Association shows the verbal argument escalating into a physical fight.

Huiyue Zheng, 32, was charged with assault and weapon possession.

Law enforcement officers arrived on call at a shopping centre North of Copenhagen, where there was a fight between two women. Those caught wearing such coverings face a fine of 1,000 kroner, while repeat offenders can face fines of 10,000 kroner.

The woman can be heard screaming in the video: 'That's my grandmother, stop! Christina Thomas, who Zheng allegedly struck with a broomstick, also faces assault charges.

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

One of the workers in denim shorts starts to hit the customer repeatedly with a broomstick.

A salon customer was arrested as well.

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. Several people held signs stating "Black $$$ matters" and chanted "black dollars matter".

"There is no respect for people in this neighborhood", said 49-year-old Gavin Gibbs, a neighborhood resident, the New York Daily News reported. They left behind a shuttered salon and protesters hoping it stays that way. "We will come, we will picket it and we'll do whatever we have to close your store down".
