The n0w-viral video shows a nail salon in chaos - a loose flip-flop on the floor, manicure stations pushed roughly to the side.

A Brooklyn nail salon erupted in violence and chaos on Friday - and it's all because of an eyebrow wax gone wrong.

The salon employees began to assault the three black women with broomstick, dustpans and their hands.

A salon worker, Huiyue Zheng, 32, was arrested charged with assault and weapon possession, according to police.

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. Both were released on their own recognizance.

Later that evening, protesters marched to another nail salon that they say is owned by the same people.

According to the Maduka, the women paid for everything other than the eyebrows. Police say Christina, who is seen with her grandmother, hit an employee. The video has so far been viewed more than 720,000 times.

Police said Zhing was taken to the hospital before being arrested because of visible injuries to her face and body, PIX 11 reports.

Customer Christina Thomas was arrested on misdemeanor assault and other charges and was also released without bail, report the New York Post. "They can not survive and we can not feed them", Johnson said at the protest, according to a Facebook video.

Shamile Smiley McBroom added, "Video of a grandmother and patrons being hit with brooms does not deserve service".

Meanwhile, the Facebook page for New Red Apple Nail salon has been flooded with negative reviews and backlash over the incident. "He said "I'll fix it, ' she said 'you can't fix it". One outraged woman, Jasmine Johnson, shared footage of herself taking part in a protest of the salon, which reportedly forced it to close for the day.

"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.
