Ref Banned For Making Wrestler Cut Dreadlocks Off
I remember when I 1st heard about this story, I couldn't believe this could even happen in 2018. I felt so bad for the young man who was forced to cut his hair before an high school wresting match all because of a referee.
I for one haven't had a haircut in over 12 years and my son also has dreads and has never had a hair cut. I know some people grow their hair for fashion and others for religious beliefs, non the less no one should be force to choose between their hair or a forfeiting a match..
The H.S. wrestler who was forced to cut his dreadlocks before a wrestling match is happy the referee behind the incident was punished... but his attorney tells TMZ Sports the guy should be BANNED for LIFE. Alan Maloney was suspended 2 seasons by the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association on Wednesday ... after telling the 16-year-old Andrew Johnson (who is black) to either cut off his dreadlocks or forfeit a Dec. 2018 match. The wrestler's attorney, Dominic Speziali, tells TMZ Sports Johnson and his family "welcome" the punishment and call it a win "for the progress of civil rights in New Jersey" ... but feel it could have been more significant.
