An upsetting video of a beauty supply store owner punching a mother in the face is burning up social media.
The viral recording, which surfaced Monday, shows a man identified by police as Changseok Jun, owner of Jun’s Beauty Supply in Tulsa, Okla., punching the woman outside the store Sunday after her child pocketed a small item as the family was walking out the door.
The altercation was shot by an unknown witness and shared on social media, including by social activist Shaun King, who tweeted, “This is the 2nd time an Asian owner of a Black beauty supply shop has physically attacked a Black woman in the past week.”
Yahoo Lifestyle could not reach a representative at Jun’s Beauty Supply for comment.
Sergeant Shane Tuell of the Tulsa Police Department tells Yahoo Lifestyle that the attack occurred early Sunday evening when a small child, unbeknownst to his or her mother, took an item from the store without paying.
