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

Nail salon workers got involved in a nasty fight with two of their customers when one of the customers refused to pay for eyebrow work that wasn't up to scratch.

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. Thomas says that when she refused to pay for the eyebrow job that she thought was done poorly, an argument ensued and escalated. "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".

The source added, "I think she finds it a little frustrating at times, but this is her new life, and she has to deal with it". Sharon urged Thomas to "get clean" and stop humiliating the Duchess on her USA talk show, The Sun reports.

A harrowing video showing a group of nail salon employees attacking a black family in Brooklyn, New York has gone viral with many calling for the establishment to be shut down. Some protesters urged black residents in the neighborhood not spent their money at the salon.

Thomas faces charges of misdemeanor assault, misdemeanor menacing and harassment, police said. "If you pay for a service and you don't like a service, it's a $5 eyebrow". The service is below standards and they lack respect for people of color. "We will come, we will picket it and we'll do whatever we have to close your store down".

"Until they open a soul food restaurant in Chinatown, we ain't eating over there", one woman tells the crowd. "Every one of these stores don't like black people", he says.

At one point, an Asian man steps outside the salon and is booed.

Similar comments appeared on a livestream of the protests taking place outside the salon. The salon closed for the remainder of the day.
