"So I'm at the nail salon and they f***ed up a lady's eyebrow and she refused to pay then a fight broke out", Maduka captioned the post.

Surveillance and cellphone footage from the Friday incident shows two workers whacking customers with broomsticks, with one patron staggering toward the door as a worker rains blows on her back.

A viral video showing a group of nail salon employees beating a customer with a broom has resulted in backlash for the Brooklyn business.

The video shows a portion of the brawl at New Red Apple Nails on Norstrand Ave, in East Flatbush, Brooklyn.

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

"Hitting them like animals", she said.

According to witnesses, one woman was upset because her brow job was "f-ked up, ' (her words)". Manager Michael Lin said it all started when he waived the charge for an eyebrow wax, but still wanted to be paid for the pedicures given to Christina Moses and her grandmother. Both were released on their own recognizance.

Customer Christina Thomas was arrested on misdemeanor assault and other charges and was also released without bail, report the New York Post.

By Monday night, the video had racked up hundreds of thousands of views.

Sandwiched in between a West Indian grocery store and a sneaker store, New Red Apple Nails is located on the edge of East Flatbush, a working-class neighborhood in Brooklyn. In it, the nail salon workers get into a fight with two customers.

"I'm not trying to die on my bday or go to jail", she wrote.

Local residents staged a protest at the nail salon on Sunday, with people posting several signs to the shuttered nail salon reading "Black $$$ matter", "They beat black women here", and "Don't spend here". The service is below standards and they lack respect for people of color. The shop was closed for the day and Johnson encouraged viewers of the video to continue protesting and boycotting the business.
