Appalling: A Referee Forces a Wrestler to Cut His Dreadlocks or Forfeit the Fight (Video)

An investigation was opened after a referee forced a wrestler to cut his dreadlocks or he would be disqualified.

Andrew Johnson, a student at Buena Regional High School in New Jersey (USA) chose to get his hair cut and won his fight. He would have had only a few seconds to decide before the fight at Mays Landing,

The video of the incident went viral on Twitter, provoking outrage from users. Some have accused referee Alan Maloney of racial discrimination. In 2016, he was accused of making racist remarks against another arbitrator. The video, shared by Mike Frankel of SNJ Today News has recorded millions of views since Friday.

Alan Maloney was suspended pending the results of the investigation. The state civil rights division will also review the incident.

Amol Sinha of the American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey told The Inquirer, “There should not have been a choice. It does not seem to be a question of hair. It looks like it’s a question of race. “

For the Democratic legislator John Armato the decision of the arbitrator is a “clear act of racial discrimination. “
