It inspired a small protest outside Missha Beauty and its sister store in Bronzeville, Chicago. According to The Charlotte Observer, Lim apologized to the protestors and to the woman he assaulted, who still has not been publicly identified. On March 11, a few days after the incident at Missha Beauty, a video with a similar dynamic was posted to Twitter.
She denied the charge, and alleged that he followed her and a group of her friends into a nearby store to confront them. For so many black people in the US, videos of this kind, no matter how shocking, reveal nothing new. The incidents recalled a long-standing division between black people and those of Asian descent across the United States.
Beauty supplies — stores like Missha Beauty that sell hair and beauty products for black people and which have historically been difficult to find in regular drug stores — are often Korean-owned, and frequently the epicenter of that contentious relationship.
