It's been several days since the video of Sharkeisha beating up a young woman went viral, and people are still talking about it. So what exactly happened to the victim, who has been identified as Shamichael Manuel?
Early rumors claimed Sharkeisha's victim killed herself after the fight video went viral. But that is not the case, as the girl in question, named Shamichael Manuel, gave an interview to KHOU earlier this week. Manuel revealed that the day of the fight, she was told to go to a friend's house to pick up some items. It was there that Sharkeisha attacked her, and a viral video was born.
"I was just in shock," Manuel said. "I was like oh my God. Did she really do this? You're supposed to be my close friend. We were talking in school earlier that day. She made it seem like there was nothing wrong with her."
The Sharkeisha fight video ends before we see what happened to Shamichael Manuel. But the latter revealed to KHOU that a neighbor came and drove her home. Manuel reportedly suffered a black eye and cut lip in the attack.
Reports also circulated that a woman named Sharkiesha Tyeshia Thompson had been arrested for the fight. But it is unclear if this woman is the same person in the viral video. The real Sharkeisha may soon be identified, however, as Shamichael Manuel's mother has reportedly pressed charges.
"The video's just going and going," the mother, Olevia Henderson said. "They're making jokes, and they're taunting. They're glorifying the girl Sharkeisha, but they're taunting my daughter at the same time."
Henderson also claimed that her daughter and Sharkeisha both attend Cypress Creek High School in Texas. The mother told the school's assistant principal about the attack, but Cypress Creek High officials cannot do anything because the fight was off campus.
"I was in the grocery store, and the girl was checking out my groceries," Henderson continued. "The baggers were just laughing and talking about it [the video]. I said that's my daughter in that video, and their whole expression changed."
So who is to blame for this fight video? Sharkeisha was obviously mad about something, reportedly a boy. But it does not seem like Manuel did anything to warrant getting publicly attacked and humiliated.
Even worse, Sharkeisha has supposedly not shown any sympathy for the fight victim. A Twitter account called @LilButtSHAR reportedly belongs to the attacker, though this has not been confirmed. But the person running this account has not yet apologized for what she allegedly did to Manuel. Instead, she bragged about her increased popularity and even threatened to fight Shamichael Manuel a second time.
