Protesters have gathered outside of a Brooklyn nail salon Monday after a viral video showed employees of the salon beating Black women with broomsticks and hurling acetone on them over an alleged eyebrow was dispute.
"Beside them getting hit with sticks, acetone was thrown on them", she added. Police later arrived on the scene to arrest two of the salon's employees.
Huiyue Zheng, 32, was charged with assault and weapon possession. Both she and the salon's owners agree that she wasn't happy with how the eyebrow wax turned out.
Christina Thomas, who Zheng allegedly attacked with a broomstick, was also being charged with assault.
Cellphone video of the incident circulated widely over the weekend before more video emerged showing another angle.
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.
