Andrew Johnson was about to compete for Buena Regional High School in New Jersey last night with his dreadlocks covered when ref Alan Maloney reportedly stepped in. Maloney, per TMZ, gave Johnson two choices: cut your hair off, or forfeit the match.

Johnson reluctantly chose to cut off his hair, but as you can tell in the video (below), he’s pretty visibly upset by the entire situation:

What the hell?!

Anyways, per TMZ, they’ve reached out to high school authorities in N.J. and haven’t heard anything back yet… Worse yet, the referee in question here has a history of alleged racist behavior. And he’s still refereeing high school sports?! UGH!!!

What do U think about this, Perezcious readers??? Share your comments with us (below)…
