A new video on Facebook has been causing outrage on social media, showing a Florida woman disgustingly insulting a nail salon owner with racist remarks and slurs.
According to the video posted by Robin L. Roether that was taken at Bali Nail Salon, a woman was “angry” when she didn’t get a top coat on her manicure and proceeded to cause a scene in the salon. In the video, the woman shouts:
‘You sound nasty, your language sounds nasty. It actually sounds like you were born out of a f***ing hermit crab.”
As well as:
‘If I wanna go to a nail salon, I want them to talk English so they can understand when I want a g**d*** top coat.
The salon owner kept calm throughout the altercation, brushing off the comments. Some other women in the salon did stand up for the workers, telling the woman she was being nasty and should stop–including the woman who posted the video to her Facebook.

After the video was posted to Facebook, it was shared over 10,000 times and viewed over 1 million times. Many people left comments on the video, shocked and appalled that someone would speak to another person like that.
The nail salon where the video was taken was identified by Facebook users as Bali Nail Salon. Many people online have started leaving reviews on the Yelp page for the salon, identifying that the owner was “respectful” and “professional” throughout the altercation.
I think it goes without saying that this kind of behavior is never acceptable–no matter what. Here’s to hoping there are more people in the world like the woman who stood up for the nail salon owner, than the racist a**hole who caused a scene.
