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.

@Yeah- I have never been more certain that you are black. Why? You have the polished version of trying to educate a person while appearing to make passionate effort in getting them to understand and for the GRAND EXIT you leave abruptly insulting them with accusations of bigotry. Only blacks speak so confident & they come by it natural. Do you realize the impact that the words racist, bigot, homophobe have on a self sufficient & self motivated individual? Do you understand how people think when they live in the real world and not interested in being apart of politically correct, plastic, no moral society? I really don't think you understand that a REAL MAN cannot be converted by weak minded race card players that feel it their retributional right to have everything that a white has just because some fucking slave was sold in africa by their own ancestors and brought to this country. I owe you nothing- NOT EVEN RESPECT/ because respect is something you earn and you can't even "PONY UP" a down payment on respect. You will not- BULLSHIT ME no more than you will pretend to claim justification of your self proclaimed rights. You don't impress anyone with your BLACK HISTORY STATS- what you do is bore the fuck out of me. Your race spends far to much time looking for approval of the very fucking people you hate. By the way- HOW BOUT THAT OPRAH- black community is Soooooooo silent! Crickets?

Can't be mad at you sims. Guess others saw that you said "nigg*r" and "all blacks" and missed the point you were actually making. Slavery is over and whatever happened happened, I don't expect a hand-out exclusively for blacks when other races have gone through slavery as well; even if other races didn't go through slavery, fuck it, why spit on my ancestors' hardships by being a lazy good-for-nothing. Like you said, a real man thinks for himself, I'm tired of seeing "my race is this my race is that" as a crutch, the individual is what matters, you're either worthless or not.

who is this oprah you speak of?

Who is this Oprah? Your kidding right? She is a Black entertainment Billionaire that made her money from whites and recently she spoke and said that all old white people need to die. Yes real men think for themselves weak men are a bitch for others. I will not participate in the white guilt.

@ name- its not the skin color. I have a black dog & car, black shoes & boots. It's not the color that is the problem. Being surprised by oprahs comments is like being surprised that their is always 12 in a carton of a dozen eggs.

I think you took that too literal. The color is a color, but because of the stereotypical actions that are associated with it on human skin, just gets silly. For instances speaking competent in the country we've been in long enough to know the vocabulary to is considered talking like a "white boy." The categorization comes with the skin color, its not really going to have an affect on your enjoyment of other things that have the same color, otherwise there might be an actual problem.

what is this dozen of eggs you speak of?

@cracker- you are precisely why the word nigger was created. A nigger is someone who uses. A nigger is someone who takes no responsibilty especially regarding women. I do not have the vocabulary to express how little I give a shit as to your thoughts on any given subject matter. The black race is watering itself down for 2 reasons- #1 weak white women who have no self worth #2 Black women know the end result with black males. Abuse, absence, infidelity, abandonment. You are familiar? :)

Think about what you just said- Power & racism- IT DOSENT EVEN MAKE A FU*KING BIT OF SENSE YOU STUPID BLACK MF'er! You nigg*ers are all alike - you start off by telling me how I have misread you and before you finish you sound like that other Nigg*r Oprah wanting whites to die! You have nothing today and it will be the same tomorrow. Even the Asians avoid your black ass! Have you been talking to Kimmie? Cause she also has the same wishy washy traits. Fu*king black people and the devistation that comes with them.

Sharkeisha is not a bully. She was not bullying this girl. The girl who got beat up was fooling around with Sharkeisha's boyfriend and this was the method Sharkeisha chose to deal with her. Could she have been more civil? Yes. But the "victim" was not unsuspecting. In the original video she is clearly ready for a fight, and she probably knew that if she's fooling around with her close friend's boyfriend she most likely will get hurt. And being Sharkeisha's close friend she most likely knew that Sharkeisha could beat her up. It was a risk that she was willing to take and she messed up. Now she has no friends. Sucks for her. All this bullying BS is stupid. They were both wrong.
