Little boy shaves his head to 'look like his friend,' warms the internet's heart

A little boy is quickly going viral for his choice of hair cut.

Louisville resident Lydia Stith Rosebush shared the cute story on Facebook:

Rosebush was discussing her son, Jax's, hair and how he needed a haircut. "He said that he wanted his head shaved really short so he could look like his friend Reddy." Jax then got the same haircut as his friend.

"He said he couldn't wait to go to school on Monday with his hair like Reddy's so that his teacher wouldn't be able to tell them apart," Rosebush said. "He thought it would be so hilarious to confuse his teacher with the same haircut."

The photo Rosebush posted is of Jax and Reddy -- who clearly don't look alike, but Jax didn't take that into consideration. "If this isn't proof that hate and prejudice is something that is taught I don't know what is," she said. "The only difference Jax sees in the two of them is their hair."

The photo and sweet story quickly circulated the internet, and has over 40,000 shares and 80,000 likes.
