A female nail technician is under fire for calling Asian nail technicians “chinks” on her social media account.
, a licensed cosmetologist and nail technician who goes by the handle of @polishedby_rae

She wrote in her Facebook post
: “When the Chinx can’t get yo shape right. I DO FOR YOU. Before and after nail shaping.”
People on social media chimed in, laughed, and continued to make fun of the slur.
