A bad haircut has always had social consequences, but we are at a new level where people will try to kill you for a doo they find offensive
This Colorado man is avowedly not a neo-Nazi.
But he believes his long-on-top, buzzed-on-the-sides haircut got him mistaken for one — and nearly stabbed to death by a confused anti-fascist.
Joshua Witt, 26, escaped his brush with hairdo-doom with a defensive slice to the hand and three stitches.
“Apparently, my haircut is considered a neo-Nazi statement,” he told The Post Saturday, as his account on Facebook garnered 20,000 shares.
Witt says he’d just pulled in to the parking lot of the Steak ’n Shake in Sheridan, Colo., and was opening his car door.
“All I hear is, ‘Are you one of them neo-Nazis?’ as this dude is swinging a knife up over my car door at me,” he said.
“I threw my hands up and once the knife kind of hit, I dived back into my car and shut the door and watched him run off west, behind my car.
“The dude was actually aiming for my head,” he added.
Quoting from his Facebook page
So I went to get a shake after the chiropractor and as I got out of my car all I hear is “you one of them neo-nazi?” As the dude was swinging a small pocket knife over my car door …. then he took off running and I was just sitting there in shock like what the heck dude
I have no tattoos that would indicate anything like that
There is nothing on the car that I am aware of that might suggest it
My head is not shaved
I just don’t understand this world anymore lol people are crazy
Thank heaven he wasn’t seriously injured.
Can’t blame him at all when it comes to not understanding this world. We used to be a nation that really valued individual rights, we also understood the way you make hate groups go away, is you come down hard when they break the law and you ignore them when they cry for attention. Now look at where we are.
