Demonstrators are calling for the salon to be shut down because of video that emerged of workers attacking a woman for allegedly not paying for an eyebrow service.

Video posted online shows people gathered outside New Red Apple Nails in East Flatbush.

The protest happened after video was shared on Facebook Friday night showing a group of women in smocks surrounding a woman as a second woman whacks her with a broom.

She also expressed her anger that the salon staff were "hitting [the women] like animals". Witnesses claim a group of women reportedly comprised of four women paid for manicures and pedicures, but a botched eyebrow job on woman lead to an argument.

It wasn't immediately clear if the two salons are related.

'So I'm at the nail salon and they f***** up a lady eyebrow and she refused to pay then a fight broke out, ' wrote Mercy Maduka. The video has so far been viewed more than 720,000 times. "Share this cause the cops made a decision to arrest the black people but not the Chinese people who ganged up on them- hitting them like animals".

Shortly after the workers were driven away, several protesters and cops shoved each other but there were no immediate arrests.

Employee Huiyue Zheng, 32, was charged with assault and weapon possession and was released on her own recognizance after a hearing at Brooklyn Criminal Court. Christina Thomas was charged with misdemeanor assault along with other charges. She apparently punched and slapped someone, dragging them over the floor.

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

Officers had gone to the salon to arrest a second employee, but that worker was not there at the time. They demanded that the charges against Thomas be dropped.
