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.

It never is surprising to hear Blacks and weak minded whites talk about racism. When a black like OJ Simpson got away with murder immediately blacks stood and cheered at the not guilty verdict. NOT ONE BLACK CALLED OUT OJ but they will convict Zimmerman before the trial even started. THAT IS RACISM! To call out this little black bitch and for blacks to pretend this is not a daily violent part of black society is also RACIST! When a black boy sets his sights on a blond fu*ks her then knocks her up and doesn't take responsibilty because he just wanted his Trophy- THAT IS FU*KING RACIST. I have no idea what kind of peer pressure you weak white people must of had in high school and I don't give a fu*k. I really don't care what BLACKS have been thru and the burden they carry- DON'T GIVE A FU*K. What I hope you understand is where I live - which in the real world- BLACKS ARE THE BIGGEST RACE CARD PLAYER AND THEY ARE THE MOST RACIST PEOPLE ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH.You weak white that fold up and cave in like a bit*h- you are despised even more. Regardless- neither of your kind will be nothing more than a Nigg*r.

@ Sims

I'm glad you took the time to ask every "black" what they thought about the OJ case... You're definitely apart of the problem. Yeah I would love to go through the untold history in our class rooms of how slavery didn't really end till the 1940's and the connection between the end of share cropping (late 1930s early 1940s) and the rapid increase in the black population in prisons. How many blacks can say they know about their family that goes more than 3 generations deep with fathers not ripped away by circumstances such as slavery, share cropping, and imprisonment for not having working documents (not including west Indian blacks who tend to do as well as the "asians" you speak of that don't mess with blacks). Its not a surprise that blacks can be racist as well but they are by far more accepting of other races whether its one black man in a group of whites or the other way around. I would love to talk about the distrust that has been created between blacks and law enforcement, crooked politicians and the siphoning of money from their neighborhoods but you don't care and unwilling to understand. Its amazing blacks have gotten this far. I'm proud of the whites you call weak who stood for and by blacks despite being an outcast and looked down on by people like you. When blacks have no jobs you call them lazy when they have jobs you complain about them taking yours and play the "must be affirmative action" card.It doesn't matter what blacks do good or bad you're still going to be a racist bigot.

@ Sims

wow this is one of the most ignorant comments ive ever seen in my life, do you even know any black people personally are you serious about the oj thing? like im laughinf at how stupid what you said is you cant be serious theres no way. AS a half black half white person, i know that black guys dont have sex with white girls for a trophy... whatever the hell that means my dad loves my mother and theyve been together for almost 20 years there are lots of interracial couples . and If u want to get down to it white guys have sex with blondes for a trophy more than any race. And your saying black ppl convicted Zimmerman before the trial, 90 percent of america convicted zimmerman dumb ass! if you ask a general group of ppl on their feelings on him 90 percent will say that hes a pussy who has to shoot a kid because he was getting his ass beat.

@ raven

I must say and I'm not surprised that your post is made made up of nothing but LIES! Yes I grew up around black people and because of that I know their mindset. Race is a daily part of their lives because that's all the fuck they talk about. Weeks after charges were filed on Zimmerman 60% among blacks said it was murder and the other 40% was from involuntary to self defense so where in the fu*k do you get off with 90%. If you are indeed white/Black then that would explain your ignorance- MOTHERS SIDE & your racism-Fathers side. OJ? What the fu*k could you possibly no about that case. You blacks will not come to terms with the violent nature of your race not to mention your racism. You can't face it therefore weak whites are the only ones listening to you. I honestly don't give a shit about your mixed parents no more than I do you. Just because you find a diamond in a goats ass does not mean that same ass is clean. Your race is in denial and no other race wants to be associated with you! Except of course picked over white bitches that hated their own daddy- then again, you already knew that!

@ Sims

Humans in general are violent, not just blacks, bro. Do you even realize how many pointless and unnecessary wars have been waged throughout history? Speaking as if blacks are the only ones who hurt others is an ignorant mindset to have.

@ Sims

How can you say you know "their mindset"? So you mean to tell me that you've met every single black person in this world and assessed each and every one of them? The ignorant one is you my dear. I say ignorant and not racist because racism comes from a place of power, so blacks cannot be racist until there are an active majority of them in positions that are high enough to oppress other races. Honestly there isn't much of a point arguing with you because unless someone agrees with your supremacist ignorant beliefs you won't agree with them. So instead I'll just pray for the day all of the people who think like you die off (and that includes all supremacists; white, black, brown, red, yellow, etc.). That way this country will be truly equal.


I hate bullies. I hope karma gets her.

@ Shannon L

We don't want to associate crappy ass race either bitch ^_^


@Jay you haven't grown at all in. She isn't a monkey she is a child that doesn't have any manners. If you are referring to black people which I presume you are then you are not better. Put someone doesn't to make you feel better? I'm sorry but if you like it or not African Americans are here and they do a lot. Your racism makes you seem like a ignorant douche and a racial slur.


It starts at home. Sharkeisha's home couldn't have been one of value for her to do this. So sad smh


Well..what can you expect from a monkey?? Typical behavior for their kind.

@ Jay

I can't agree with you're ethnocentric comment. No matter what ethnicity one is, all humans are of the same species. So I'm shocked that you had the audacity to say such a thing when you, my friend, are of the same kind as sharkeisha.

@ Jay

thats very racist.

@ Jay

and what do you call your kind asshole


she says its over a boy but what she fails to mention is that she had sex with Sharkeshas boyfriend. Even though as she says they were supposed to be best friends and she knew what was going to happen it was wrong for Sharkesha to sneak her like that, but for her to claim she had no idea what it was over is bull what did she think was going to happen when she went over to a girls house whose boyfriend she fucked.


She is garbage and it was probably over something stupid like a guy! You should be ashamed off all the people standing around and watching her Guys grow a pair!


Sharkeisha...what a fucking stupid name fitting for a stupid blob of afterbirth.


Trifling... just trifling. Young women need to have more self respect and quit fighting over these raggedy boys. And stop video taping it.


i can't believe that bitch punched and kicked her if that was sister i'd get my gun and pop a pelt in her eye and lip!bitch!
