Since Jax and Reddy's story went viral, Jax's mom decided to let her little boy chop off his hair to rock the same look as his best friend. Not only did Jax go to the hair salon with Reddy by his side but the pair immediately began to "switch places" as soon as the haircut was complete.
"Initially I told Jax that he could not cut his hair like Reddy. He has a big head I was afraid he would look weird!" Lydia shared on Frank Somerville's Facebook page.
"I hope the world learns from the innocence of these two boys. Color doesn't matter to them, they're just friends and that's all that matters."
When Lydia Stith Rosebush told her little boy that his hair was getting wild and that he needed a haircut over the weekend, Jax made a surprising announcement.
The little boy declared that he wanted his head shaved short so that he could look like his friend Reddy. The adorable little boy was convinced that he and his pal looked similar enough that if they had the same hairstyle, they'd be able to trick everyone. He also thought it would be beyond hilarious to confuse his teacher on Monday.
His mom proudly shared a picture of Jax and Reddy from their school's Christmas event on the Love What Matters Facebook page to make what her son sees perfectly clear. "I'm sure you all see the resemblance," she wrote. "If this isn't proof that hate and prejudice is something that is taught I don't know what is. The only difference Jax sees in the two of them is their hair."
