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.


There is not one thing surprising by this action. Blacks attack whites and when it's convenient they attack other blacks. Is it no wonder that blacks are behind in every category. Violence is a normality in the black race. Hearing a black 5 year old in Walmart say" MOTHERFU*KER" is also normal. You people are a disfunction mess. Do other races conduct themselves this way? No! Obama being the Prez. possibly gives you a false sense of security- regardless- your race has a problem and you need to get cleaned up or stay on bottom- your choice. Look at statistics- its obviously overwhelming.

@ Sims

Blacks attack whites...that's how you feel. I'm sorry that you are so very ignorant. When us blacks were marching, sitting at counters and protesting peacefully, who attacked who? You ignorant asshole!

@ Sims

Are u serious right now !!!!!! Sooo racist !!!! Not all black ppl arent like tht. So get it right ok. You better check yourself b4 you wreck yourself kay yeah bye.


So catchy and original. You've got to be proud.


This is so disguisting.
Instead of passing this video around making sharkweisha (what kinda name is that anyway?!) More known and even famous in some kind of way, she should be getting arrested . Instead you know somewhere youve got girls just like her thinking she's so cool and theyve got to go out and do something like that. And for all of you saying that its insensitive to state the obvious about how these people are, its pathetic. True there are some very great people who have accomplished so many great things and are African Americans, but they are over shadowed by these apes that clearly by their looks and speech and the way they conduct them selves, thats theyre a little bit behind on evolution. I know MLK and rosa parks didnt dedicate their lives for equality so that these morons can act like this. Sick.

@ eww

No kidding- what kind of name is that???? A black name - without a doubt. Blacks are known for one thing universally- violence. 50% of the violence in this country is by blacks? Is that racist? It's a God Damn fact. Yet they will sucker punch whites and then they will play the race card and if they are not personally involved with either- THEY WILL NEVER CALL ANYONE OUT. Screwed up and nobody wants to be a part of them unless it's white trash. I could go the rest of the year without seeing one. They are a drain on civilization.

@ Sims

You sound ignorant. Yet the highest population in state prisons isn't black. Statistics for welfare are highest among whites. And teens becoming pregnant is higher among Mexicans and whites. Half of the violence in this country is not committed by blacks by the way. Get your facts straight. I'm not saying wheat she did was right but don't go targeting all blacks for the few that tuck up. You sound racist. I will be praying for whoever you are

@ Sims

@ sims please dont get me started with how quick they are to pull the racism card when it comes to them.
When its a crime on them they go bananas but when its the other way around no one says a work. Sick. And I dont know about you but I can go the rest of my life not seeing another one.

This has nothing to do with race. It's all about location. @sims I can only assume you are Caucasian like myself and I have to say you make us all look bad. Most serial killers, pedaphiles, and mass murderers are Caucasian how would you feel if you where lumped in with that group because of skin color. You are obviously undereducated and it shows. We owe a lot of our current culture to various ethnic groups and primarily to people of color, which you would know if you picked up a book once in a while. Further more Obama is not the only example of educated black people, there are black authors, song writers, scientist etc with very notable accomplishments. Inherited wealth and favor does not make you better than anyone. Worthless morons like you get a little anonymity and can't handle it. people like you are the epitome of human garbage


If whites are scared of you, it is because they are smart enough to know how dangerous stupid people with a gun are! Are you proud of this girl and the mouth on her, and her dumb mama? If you are then you're no better then this lowly trash.


What kind of name is Sharkeisha? So ghetto!!


@ Sims how can you sit there and stereotype a race due to the fact that most people of that race behave a certain way? That shows a high amount of immaturity and that your perspective on life needs to change. I bet you must be the biggest hypocrite on this forum. So you're saying that all blonde females of your race are dumb? You're clearly saying that. You cannot at all assume how a race or anything in general per say people of a certain group are . This is why the world is never going to improve -…- Thank you very much
from an African American -_-



@ abe

Yeah because their brainless!
