When Is It Ever That Serious? Two Women Severely Injured After Being Burned With Hot Grease Over Instagram Dispute

A heated dispute got completely out of hand when four Georgia women, Ashley Hardy, Jasmine Ragland, Shatericka Barrino and Stori Brown got together and headed to the Cumberland Glen apartment complex in an effort to confront another group of women over messages posted on social networking site, Instagram. Once they arrived to the apartments, the women were met in the parking lot by Zawadi Clark, 20, Myzelle Armstrong, 18, and Mykhal Tait, 20, who were awaiting their arrival with baseball bats and hot grease, reports the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Realizing that they were in danger, Hardy and her friends quickly fled to their vehicle, but they were too late. The trio of armed women quickly yanked the car door open and tossed hot grease inside, which hit Hardy and Ragland who were seated in the front seat of the vehicle.

The blistering grease left second and third-degree burns on the arms and legs of the injured women. Smyrna Police  revealed that the burns will more than likely lead to permanent scarring. All three suspects involved in the assault have been charged with felony battery. So far, Zawadi Clark and Myzelle Armstrong have been freed on $40,000 bond. Mykhal Tait still remains in custody.

” I was just shocked because I couldn’t even scream… I was just in shock. I didn’t believe it was happening to me at all,” Ashley Hardy told WSBTV of her traumatic experience.

“It’s hard for me to walk, bathe, get up to use the bathroom, just anything. Everyday things that I’m used to doing are hard for me to do now,” she continued. “Don’t ever show up at anyone’s house after they tell you that they’re planning to fight you. Just don’t show up, let it go, ignore it.”

    You never go to someone’s house to fight them. Those dumb broads got what was coming to them. This is exactly why I don’t beef on social networks or in real life. People are crazy.

  • J

    Hoes jump up to get beat down….

  • Tasha

    So scratches head what did you think was going to happen… yea u catch them on the street never go to someones house..smh thats was just stupid.

  • Nahabanie

    Ummmmm growing up I was told never to go looking for trouble, let trouble come to u. First off these young ladies should’ve stayed at home. What if it was a gun instead of the grease? What if they would’ve gotten stabbed? You never know what the next person is coming out the house with. That’s like pulling a knife when someone has a gun in their hand…

  • Candacey Doris

    Wait, so these foolish women went over to these women’s house expecting to have a fight? So the whole issue here is that the other women were a little too prepared! If all they did was beat them down couldn’t they have claimed self defense? After all, those women came to THEM. Not that this whole thing isn’t ridiculous.

  • Why do we as black women show so much hatred for one another? All women have catty counterparts, but it seems our peers often go too far in acting out their distaste for one another! It is frustrating to stand by and see, and it gets worse with these younger women. Instagram? It’s never that serious. But you know what they say, don’t bring a knife to a gunfight. They went looking for trouble and found it, and now have to literally live with the scars for life. Sad and pathetic.

    I’m gonna ignore the ignorance and just say wow, those are some pretty mugshots, especially the third girl, so gorgeous, so crazy, sigh. Otherwise, they all definitely learned today

    • Kahekili

      This has nothing to do with ignorance.

      • Kahekili

        If you give me a thumbs down it is because you don’t know the correct definition of ‘ignorant’.

        • Chassie

          the funny thing is… i didn’t even thumbs you down. have a good day, try not to spread hate today

          • Kahekili

            Not YOU, I meant the general you.

  • mac

    I was done at Shatericka.

    • SunshineBlossom

      *dead* lol

  • Really, grown women do this? Me and my best-friend used to do this when we were like 15!

    • Rayjulian85

      No, they’re basically teenagers

      • Oh, okay! LMAO! I was thinking they looked a little too old to be teenagers, but that makes much more sense!

        • Tasha

          There adults over 18 means adult and they ranged from 18-20

        • Rayjulian85

          They range from 18-20 but I think we can all agree that mentality is closer grouped to teens than it is to adults

  • Trisha_B

    A fight over instagram?! Really? Make your profile private & block them. smh

  • Ms. Kameria

    “Don’t ever show up at anyone’s house after they tell you that they’re planning to fight you. Just don’t show up, let it go, ignore it.”

    Somebody else probably told them not to go over there either…..but they ignored it, so were they looking for a fight?

    • NikkitaMichelle

      So sorry they had to learn things the hard way, but I’m glad something was learned from this incident. You don’t go to someone’s house looking for trouble because that’s exactly what you’ll get. Honestly, their blessed that it was just hot oil and not bullets or gasoline.

      • Kahekili

        Getting hot oil thrown on you is a ‘blessing’? That is about the most illogical thing I have heard all day.

  • Kenedy

    Lol, crazy broads
