Per KHOU, Manuel's family has forgiven Shamichael Manuel's attacker. But, they also hope the charges against Sharkeisha will increase.

"I am thankful to everyone for prayers and phone calls," Henderson told Rolling Out. "I hope the charge might be upgraded to a felony. I pray for her mom as well as the child [Sharkeisha] herself. Glory to God because I know he has given my baby a story to tell about bullying."

Sharkeisha first made headlines after video of her punching Shamichael Manuel went viral on World Star Hip Hop. Since then, the clip has been viewed more than 19 million times and even inspired a song and dance.

Despite the arrest, Sharkeisha's full name has not been identified. The Twitter user at @LilbuttSHAR has claimed to be the star of the World Star Hip Hop video. However, she tweeted multiple times on Thursday, so it does not look like she spent the day in police custody.

Both Shamichael Manuel and her mother have been vocal against the attack. Henderson told KHOU last week that she originally went to her daughter's school to report the viral World Star Hip Hop fight. But officials told her they could not do anything, as the attack was off school property. So she went to the police, instead.

"The video's just going and going," Henderson told KHOU. "They're making jokes, and they're taunting. They're glorifying the girl Sharkeisha, but they're taunting my daughter at the same time."

According to KHOU, Shamichael Manuel suffered a black eye and a cut-up lip in the Sharkeisha attack. In the days after the fight video went viral, she still had trouble seeing out of her right eye.

"It is hurting and crushing to me," Manuel said. "I felt humiliated and embarrassed and hurt at the same time."
