A harrowing video showing a group of nail salon employees attacking a black family in Brooklyn, New York has gone viral with many calling for the establishment to be shut down.

The brawl broke out at New Red Apple Nail salon and witness Mercy Maduka recorded and uploaded the video to Facebook.

The salon employees began to assault the three black women with broomstick, dustpans and their hands.

Dozens of protestors gathered outside the salon Monday afternoon demanding the business be closed, and asking that locals take their business elsewhere. After the group refused the $5 fee for the service, employees blocked the entrance and held down one of the women.

"You couldn't pay me to come back here", said resident Crystal Harper. It's not that serious.

"They viciously attacked the grandmother and the granddaughter, beat them with sticks as if they were animals and threw acetone on them", said community activist Anthony Beckford. "I stopped coming here altogether, but as soon as I heard all the injustices that had happened, I felt like it was my responsibility to come and show support".

A salon worker, Huiyue Zheng, 32, was arrested charged with assault and weapon possession, according to police.

The video was posted on Facebook by another buyer who was inside the shop during the mayhem.

Sandwiched in between a West Indian grocery store and a sneaker store, New Red Apple Nails is located on the edge of East Flatbush, a working-class neighborhood in Brooklyn.

The incident has inflamed racial tensions, and prompted calls for black residents to spend their money elsewhere.

Livestreamed footage shows stone-faced police officers standing guard as protesters chant, "No more!" They also claim one protester screamed, "where is ICE?" "Every one of these stores don't like black people", he says.

At one point, an Asian man steps outside the salon and is booed.

Similar comments appeared on a livestream of the protests taking place outside the salon.
