Protestors Shut Down Red Apple Nail Salon In Brooklyn
Viral video of a nail staff attacking a Black woman and her granddaughters over an eye brow dispute has caused protestors to shut them down and their affiliated shop close by.
According to the NY Post, nine NYPD cops stood guard Monday outside the Asian-run, 888 Happy Red Apple Nails shop as about 75 demonstrators held signs saying “BLACK $$$ MATTERS” and chanted things like, “Shut them down!” and “No money! No toes! No nails! These racist shops have got to go.”
About an hour after protests began, the store in East Flatbush was shuttered, and the remaining workers were driven away in an NYPD van. But, the protests didn’t stop there. The crowd eased on down to a second salon suspect to be affiliated with Happy Red Apple Nails shop called New Red Apple Nails.. The fron tof the shop was swarmed and things got heated and some of the people reportedly yelled things like “where is ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement)?” implying that the salon’s Asian employees might be undocumented immigrants.
SMH. Here’s more video of the second location being closed:
As we previously reported, one of the shop’s managers and a patron was arrested, then released over the messy attack. Now the manager is finally speaking. Hit to flip to ready why the manager says the shop workers beat that grandma with a stick over the eyebrows.
