The Huffington Post published a serious news article in which it suggested that Eric Trump’s new haircut was racist.
The article was based on a handful of tweets from people who compared Trump’s new haircut to that of alt-right figure Richard Spencer.

“Eric Trump, the son of President Donald Trump who thinks people who oppose his dad are “not even people,” got a haircut over the weekend,” wrote HuffPost’s Lifestyle Editor Carly Ledbetter.
She then listed a series of tweets from hysterical idiots with too much time on their hands.
“Eric Trump has a fascist haircut. This cannot possibly be unintentional,” remarked one.

Other Twitter users were quick to point out that virtually half of men living in the west between the ages of 18-40 literally have this haircut right now.
WOW! That haircut is so damning.
Stay vigilant people!
