An activist who protested over the weekend claimed the liquid thrown was acetone, the primary ingredient in nail polish remover, and that the altercation began because a woman at the salon with her two grandchildren did not want to pay for a poorly done eyebrow treatment.
Surveillance video released by the Chinese American Nail Association shows the verbal argument escalating into a physical fight. The young lady paid for her feet/nails but refused to pay for her eyebrows because she was unsatisfied.
On Monday, protesters gathered outside the salon, encouraging neighbourhood residents to boycott the business. Zheng was charged with assault and weapon possession and was later released following a hearing in Brooklyn Criminal Court, police said. Lin said he still wanted Moses and her grandmother to pay for those, but they said they already had.
One woman explained to the Times that the racial tensions underlying the incident had motivated the local community to come out in force: "The black community has been pushed aside for generations, and it just seems as if the longer time goes on, the more people think we're simply going to go away", said Alexis Regnier, a 33-year-old health worker from Midwood. She brings it down onto the black woman's back, repeatedly, as the woman flees from the salon.
