Brooklyn Nail Salon Faces Protest, Calls for Closure After Violent Brawl Over Eyebrows
Protesters are calling for the shutdown of New Red Apple Nails, the Brooklyn nail salon that made headlines earlier this week after Asian workers ganged up on Black customers in a violent brawl that started with a pair of “f**ked up” eyebrows.
According to WCBS 880, demonstrators have been gathering around the salon in East Flatbush since Sunday, chanting “Where is ICE?” and “Shut them down!”
Four employees were reportedly trapped inside the premises, which protesters slammed with signs such as “Black Dollars Matter” from the outside.

Black people need to make sure they do not spend money in places where they are not valued. Not at the racist Chinese food restaurants, nail salons, beauty supply stores, or liquor stores. Recognize the power that you have, they could not thrive without you! #blackdollarsmatter
Great job Brooklyn NY residents on continuing to protest in front of apple red nail salon after they beat that grandmother and grands. #theycannolongersuckfromourbreast#blackdollarsmatter shut their racist asses down the right way. Even tho a ass whooping is in order😡
Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.
Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.
However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.
We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community.
Even a $1 contribution goes a long way. Thank you for everyone’s support. We love you all and can’t appreciate you guys enough.
