*There’s a viral clip circulating on social media of a little boy having a meltdown at the barbershop. According to several online reports, the boy told his mother that he didn’t want a haircut and even spit on a barber. Even after being told that he wouldn’t get his way, the boy continued to kick and scream.

His tantrum got so bad, he had to be held down by four people while his barber worked on him. As he screamed in agonizing pain, the barbers told him to calm down.

The kid came out of his shoes during his fit, and once he managed to get out of the chair, his mom attempted to put his shoes on and her fought her as well.  Even the barbers scolded the kid for being disrespectful to his mother.
