I am still in shock at this story? A very disturbing video surfaced on December 19th by SNJToday.com of a Andrew Johnson, a New Jersey student wrestler at Buena Regional High School being forced to cut off his dreds. Prior to his match, Johnson was told by a referee that if he didn’t cut his hair, he would forfeit the bout and would not be able to compete.

Social media has been in a complete uproar over this as you can see in the video just how devastated and emotional this was for him. In the end, Johnson won the match and according to Fox 28, the state’s Interscholastic Athletic Association says they are recommending the referee not be assigned to any event until the matter has been reviewed more thoroughly. However, this moment is forever etched in his mind and our hearts.
