As the New York Post reports, employees at the New Red Apple Nail salon in the Brooklyn neighborhood of East Flatbush attacked customers with brooms after one of the women allegedly complained about her botched eyebrow wax.

An activist who protested over the weekend claimed the liquid thrown was acetone, the primary ingredient in nail polish remover, and that the altercation began because a woman at the salon with her two grandchildren did not want to pay for a poorly done eyebrow treatment.

A protest was held outside the salon on Monday morning.

Officers had gone to the salon to arrest a second employee, but that worker was not there at the time.

Police were eventually called to the scene, at which point they reportedly arrested one patron and one of the salon workers. Cops say she was released following a hearing in Brooklyn Criminal Court. "Share this cause the cops chose to arrest the black people but not the Chinese people who ganged up on them- hitting them like animals".

Police arrested a salon worker Huiyue Zheng, 32, and one of the customers named Christina Thomas. "She went to the owner, she addressed the owner, she said, "Michael, look at my eyebrows.' And when he looked at her eyebrows, he said, 'I will fix them for you.' She's like, 'You can't fix them for me.' She was like, 'I'm not payin" for this". All you have to do is say "I'm sorry" and keep it going. Thomas refused medical treatment, according to police.

"We need to start supporting our own & run them out of our communities!" They left behind a shuttered salon and protesters hoping it stays that way.
