Customer Christina Thomas was booked on misdemeanor assault and other charges.

The video was shared on Friday (Aug 3) by a woman named Mercy Maduka, who was at the New Red Apple Nails on East Flatbush's Nostrand Avenue when the attack happened around 9:30 pm EST.

'That's my grandmother, stop, ' the granddaughter yells - and the onslaught begins to calm down as the woman shouts: 'Call the cops!' Ultimately, the three customers were treated like animals.

A nail salon worker and a customer have been arrested and charged for their involvement in an intense nail salon fight that broke out in Brooklyn last week. She was later released following a hearing in Brooklyn Criminal Court, police said.

Christina Thomas, 21, of Brooklyn was charged with assault, menacing and harrassment.

The video has been viewed more than 200,000 times.

The Facebook and Yelp pages for New Red Apple Nail have been flooded with angry comments.

A protest was held outside the salon on Monday morning. It's hard to tell who instigated the violence, but it appears to be the workers at the nail salon who are dealing the most force. She later posted the video on Facebook, where it has quickly gone viral.

And in a followup Facebook post, witness Maduka wrote, "Some of y'all asking why I didn't help wellll it's because the mf cops were there already all armed and shit and thats like 10 Asians with weapon tf I'm not trying to die on my bday or go to jail on my mf bday so please get off mi cocky".

"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 protesters were holding signs that read "Black $$$ Matters" and were chanting "black dollars matter", the news station reports.

The incident has inflamed racial tensions, and prompted calls for black residents to spend their money elsewhere.

According to News12, the salon closed for the rest of the day.
