Do NOT…Touch My Hair!

Trust, if you can get arrested for throwing a rotten banana peel at Dave Chappelle during a comedy set, then there’s no reason why police wouldn’t be called when folks decide to step into your personal space and physically touch you.

A dude got the social media business from filmmaker Ava DuVernay after harassing her on a train platform and doing what no one should ever have the nerve or audacity to do ….touched her locs!

I know, I know. I gasped with you.

Lady DuVernay’s reaction in this series of tweets:

And the awkward experience ended like this:

Now, we all know hair is personal. There are times when my mother constantly caresses mine and after about the third stroke, my follicles are screaming ….STAWP! – All in love though as that’s mama. πŸ™‚

But seriously, how about using your words to express your admiration for one’s crown? I mean, it’s not rare to have hair crushes, but keep your distance or at least ask permission.


Just think, if dude gets locked up and enters the cell on a “hair touching” charge…well, I’ll let you come to you own conclusion on that one.
