Travis Kelce’s Haircut Causing a Stir

Sad times in America as the race-baiters run amok yet again, this time over a simple haircut. That’s right folks, liberals have managed to find racism in a New York Times article about Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce’s popular “fade” haircut. How, you ask? Well, apparently some people just can’t resist the siren call of victimhood.

For those of you living under a rock, Travis Kelce has been making headlines recently for his highly-publicized relationship with pop star Taylor Swift. But did you know he’s also a trendsetter? That’s right, barber shops across the nation are being inundated with requests for ‘the Travis Kelce’ haircut. Nothing wrong with that, right? I mean, we’ve all seen guys walking around with the same haircuts as celebrities before. But leave it to the liberal media to try and make a big deal out of nothing.

In their article, the New York Times actually had the gall to suggest that “the fade” was some sort of new hairstyle! Can you believe the nerve of these people? The fade has been around since the 1940s and 1950s, when it was popularized by – get this – the U.S. military. That’s right, folks, if it weren’t for the brave soldiers of the greatest military in the world, you probably wouldn’t even know what a fade is. So when some people tried to credit Travis Kelce instead of the black community for popularizing the haircut, you can imagine the outrage that ensued.

But it gets even more absurd – some people are actually claiming that The New York Times is guilty of culturally appropriating the fade. That’s right, a newspaper writing about a popular celebrity haircut is now a form of cultural theft. This is what happens when you give liberals an inch, folks – they take a mile and twist it into something it’s not.

Let’s get one thing straight – nobody, absolutely nobody, owns a hairstyle. The idea that one race or culture can claim a particular haircut as their own is nothing short of ridiculous. But try telling that to the race-baiters who are constantly on the lookout for something, anything, to be offended by. They’re so desperate for racism to exist that they’re now inventing it where it doesn’t even exist.

In reality, The New York Times article was simply pointing out that the fade has become a popular trend, and Travis Kelce has played a role in that popularity. And isn’t that how trends work? One person or celebrity does something, and then other people start copying it because they think it looks cool. That’s life, folks. There’s no need to manufacture outrage over something as trivial as a haircut.

It’s truly sad that we live in a society where a simple New York Times article about a popular haircut can cause such an uproar. Our obsession with identity politics and trying to divide people based on race and culture is leading us down a dangerous path. So let’s take a cue from Travis Kelce – just let people get the haircut they want without trying to make it into a racial issue. Maybe then we can finally put an end to this exhausting and unproductive debate.
