White Ref Forces Black Wrestler To Cut Dreadlocks Or Forfeit Wrestling Match (VIDEO)
This is a disgusting story.
A wrestler from Buena High School was told by a referee with a history of racist behavior he had to cut his dreadlocks or forfeit his match during a dual meet Thursday night against Oakcrest, according to a report by SNJ Today News.
Andrew Johnson elected to cut his hair, prompting what appears to be an
athletic trainer to shear off his dreadlocks with scissors on the mat.
It was beyond embarrassing.
A black high school wrestler was told by a white referee that he needed to cut off his dreadlocks or forfeit an important match … and the whole incident was captured on video.
Andrew Johnson was about to compete for Buena Regional High School in New Jersey — and was wearing a cover over his dreadlocks … when referee Alan Maloney stepped in.
Maloney told Johnson his hair cover was not sufficient and gave him 2 choices — chop off the locks or lose the match.
Johnson reluctantly chose the haircut — but you can see he’s visibly upset.
Now, it’s been revealed the ref has a history of racist behavior — using a racial slur toward a black man during a social gathering in 2016 … and getting his ass kicked in the process.
The offended party (an African American man) was so pissed, he slammed Maloney to the ground following the slur.
