(If the) police say you pay for the pedicure, then you pay for the pedicure.

"So I'm at the nail salon and they f**ked up a lady's eyebrow and she refused to pay then a fight broke out", wrote the person who captured the video on Facebook.

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. When Lin called police, the salon workers tried to keep the customers inside the salon.

According to the nail association, an employee told them Thomas refused to pay for any of the other services she received, telling CBS2 that altercation could have easily been avoided. "She went to the owner, she addressed the owner, says, 'Michael look at my eyebrows.' He said, 'I'll fix it for you.' She said, 'You can't fix it, call the cops, '" she said.

She also expressed her anger that the salon staff were "hitting [the women] like animals".

Police arrived at the salon on Friday night an arrested Zheng, 32, who was charged with assault, menacing and criminal possession of a weapon, reported News 12.

The video shows what happened next, with several women attacking one customer with chairs and brooms.

Thomas faces charges of misdemeanor assault, misdemeanor menacing and harassment, police said.

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

The Washington Post reports the incident has intensified racial tensions.

There is a man holding one of the women as the workers attack at the New Red Apple Nails on Norstrand Avenue in East Flatbush.

"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.

Demonstrators angrily chanted, "shut them down", "f-k the police" and "no nails, no toes, these racist shops have got to go".

"There is no respect for people in this neighborhood", Gavin Gibbs, a 49-year-old East Flatbush resident, said to the New York Daily News. The black women and the nail salon employees start pushing and shoving each other, causing the scene to devolve into chaos as one manicurist picks up a chair and begins swinging it.
