Sharkeisha Video: Sucker Punch Shocks Nation, Gets Yanked From Instagram [UPDATED]

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Sharkeisha. One name says it all after you've seen the viral video that has spread so quickly and caused so much controversy in the last 48 hours.

That is the name of the woman whose BRUTAL close-fisted, sneak attack sucker punch of an unsuspecting victim first surfaced on Instagram.

The beating has since been taken down from the social media site, but Sharkeisha's shark-like attack lives on, as all things do in the Internet Age.

You can watch it here, but be forewarned: It is extremely violent ...

Tuesday night, the video of Sharkeisha's personal knockout game amassed 20,000 "favorites" in a matter of minutes, which is when it was taken down.

The original video was only a few seconds long and depicted Sharkeisha walloping the victim, whose name appears to be Shay, but that's about it.

The extended version (shown above) shows the infamous punch, Sharkeisha wailing on her some more, and bystanders finally intervening to pull her off Shay.

Sharkeisha continues to verbally attack the girl while she is held back.

It's not yet known what the girl did to deserve the vicious pummeling.

Sharkeisha Mug Shot

Thursday, it was rumored that Sharkeisha was arrested for the cowardly assault and her alleged mug shot (above) began to circulate on Twitter.

This booking photo, tweeted by @desusnice, purports to be Sharkeisha Tyeshia Thompson, who may or may not be the puncher in the infamous video.

Either way, this sucker punching is getting out of control. All violence is bad, obviously, but if you feel you have to duke it out, at least engage head-on.

Even Jenelle Evans follows that cardinal rule ...

UPDATE: Sharkeisha's beating victim, Sharmichael Manuel, 17, told KHOU-TV she was astounded when her former friend mauled her in such fashion.

The Houston teenager says the assailant and a group of girls set her up for the fight video, luring her to an apartment complex under false pretenses.

Manuel thought she was picking up some of her belongings. She was wrong.

“I was just in shock. I was like oh my God. Did she really do this? You’re supposed to be my close friend,” Manuel said. “We were talking in school earlier that day."

"She made it seem like there was nothing wrong with her.”

The fight broke out over a boy, Manuel reveals, and after Sharkeisha finished the staggering assault, a neighbor drove the battered teen home.

Manuel was left with black eye and busted lip. She hasn’t returned to school since the assault, in part because she has trouble seeing out of her eye.

“It is hurting and crushing to me,” Manuel said, noting that the physical pain is just the start. “I felt humiliated, embarrassed and hurt at the same time.”

Watch her talk about the ordeal below ...

UPDATE: According to reports, the mug shot above of Sharkeisha Tyesha Thompson is of a 22-year-old North Carolina woman, not the teen in question.

Sharkeisha (or Sharkeysha, according to some Texas news sources) is a minor, and currently a student at Houston’s Cypress Creek high school.

Various Twitter and Facebook accounts have surfaced claiming to be the teen but none have been confirmed. She seems to be keeping a low profile.

Meanwhile, an impostor posed as the victim of the video on Twitter over the weekend and threatened to harm herself due to the excessive bullying.

As is the case with the purported Sharkeisha Twitter accounts, this is a hoax. The actual victim is seen above, with her mother, in the video interview.

The video continues its immense popularity nationwide, which says a great deal about web users' love for violence, raw videos and unusual names.


That was the most hilarious video ever but sharkisha is a little b**** .

Its name is Sharkeisha, and people expect it to act like a human being? Seriously?


Why is this girl being hyped up? I mean look at who she attacked? Clearly this girl wasn't a match for no one, she didn't even fight back..I'm not convinced until sharkeisha comes across a real match.

ppl fighting for bull sh*t reason like over a man or stupid other things estead of settling it in a mature way yes ppl makes mistakes but that girl didn't deserve that over a guy like really if she was a really good friend to her then she would have done the right way and drop them both and never speak to them again other then that her action was uncalled for and very ghetto and I say this I think ghetto ppl is retarded period. And I want to add is posting it on YouTube or any other site is no better as well . Getting reaction or attention from other ppl is just plain stupid .

@ gariel thompson

First of all learn how to speak properly and two get ur sentenced organize or not even make sense see this is why I dis like ghetto ppl because they don't know how to speak and another think thank u for call me a bitch it's very sweet of u and another thing as well is jealously is very bad and you should get well soon. As I said before I grew up in the ghetto but I surely don't act or speak it . I am proud of myself for not following the wanna be.


That's what I figured, I was dead on and the silence proves it. All those user names makes it difficult to remember which role to play for a temperamental you woman with a shade of Alicia Keys? Stubbornness is your vice & the refusal to accept the justifiable mindset others have about certain ethnicity is a mountain top that has never seen your foot prints. So much potential wasted and so much promise dying on the vine. Until you accept that the bias has no malice then your vision will be abstract. There is ALWAYS a reaction to every action. I know your heart is in the right place but that rebellious disposition is defining your destiny. You cannot convince others of their racism when they are the ones that are being attacked. You are in a battle you cannot win because the opponent is that voice inside your head and no one else.

@ S

No matter how many big words you use you still sound stupid . Kill yourself Jim Crow. Let you and your hate burn in the fiery pits of hell. I stopped replying because I have no use for this conversation when an ignorant Neanderthal is on the opposing side. You need this, that's why you kept replying. These website battles help your sorry ass sleep at night. It's so tragic. So I'll let you go now hitler. Hope you find the courage to pull the trigger when you hatred thoughts consume you and I prey your brains end up all over that confederate flag hanging up on your wall. Have a shitty life

@ Simzkiller

Well- as long as you are happy that's what matters most! You quit writing because you have a hard time with the truth and you knew I wouldn't budge. . Self destruction is for the weak of mind so cuddle up with that denial and cuddle up tight.


and we wonder why honky's think twice about hiring us.


I don't try to be black, you just sound fucking stupid. I'm in college dipshit. You will never go in public and say the shit you say on this website to black people because you're a fucking coward, so go eat a dick. Sit in your room and masturbate on your laptop and get on sites like this and type your slanderous remarks about black people if that's what makes you feel superior but just know you're the true scum of our society. & I'm not a sellout, I'm just intelligent unlike you because even if I didn't like black people, no one will ever get rid if them, so little twats like you will live in misery when you realize that long black dicks are eventually gonna penetrate your dirty ass piece of shit white scum daughters vagina. You disgrace white people. People in general for real. So I'll end this with the same statement. Please kill yourself , the majority of the world hates people like you. Which is why your white friends put a black president into office (:

@ Simzkiller

@ K- You hide behind WHATEVER and you look as black and stupid as ever! If you want to talk the WTF don't you just come out and say it! I don't negotiate with people that have an attitude because they are wasting my time.


@ sims, kill yourself please. Jump off a fucking bridge and do society a favor. I'm white and that was the dumbest shit I've ever heard a white man say, please die so no one can show up to your funeral. Oh except me so I could piss on your casket and shit on your tombstone (:

@ Simzkiller

@ (K) FYI- cremation doesn't require a casket- I know you miss talking and your bitterness and your knee jerk racism prove it. You will never change and I knew that a long time ago. You miss talking and you would feel better if you would put down your pride and just admit it.

@ Simzkiller

I will die but before I go I will EAR FUCK white niggers like you! I don't need a vote of approval to know WTF I am talking. Until your weasel ass gets out of high school you will stay stupid. If you are really white- you are disgrace and a sellout. It's trash like you that make it difficult for successful people like me. Now go and be the black wannabe that choose to be!
