The video confirms my belief that sometimes some people need their asses whooped.
In the video, the barbershop’s owner is confronting the employee he left in charge while he was away about selling drugs out of the shop. The employee acts unremorseful and smug about his actions. The employee’s reaction was the equivalent of the famous Rick James “Fuck your couch” sketch from The Chappelle Show, but in this case, he was saying “Fuck Your Barbershop Nigga!” The combination of not accepting responsibility for doing some stupid shit and not taking a serious situation seriously motivated the owner to beat the breaks off of dude’s ass. He folded dude up like a lawn chair, he Kimbo Sliced dude; he beat him like a dusty rug. He beat this kid out of his head band, literally.
I don’t think I would have reacted that way. I think I would have fired him and been done with him. But, I can understand the owner’s fear and anger about what he did. I get the sense that the owner was probably a criminal at some point in his life and this barber shop was his legitimate hustle, and the thought of losing it because some dumb ass didn’t respect what he worked so hard to achieve, made him feel disrespected. And when some people feel disrespected and scared assess get whooped.
The most disturbing part of this video was not the ass whoopin but the fact that a small child witnessed it. As the video is going off you hear a child saying “I want to see daddy fight” and the woman recording the beat down whom I assume is the owner’s wife/girlfriend/baby mama/jump off says “You don’t want to see that baby.” Sad thing is he’d already seen enough.
If brutality disturbs you don’t watch this:
