How many times have you been out and had someone reach for your hair in an effort to put their hands in it?
Artist and TikToker Gettmanni, Amani Love attended an event and posted two videos showing a white woman asking her if her fro was her real hair.
And of course, while she is asking (for the third time mind you) she reached for the fro. Well, Amani wasn’t having it!
Watch the incident below:

We were like girl, no you didn’t reach for this lady’s hair? The audacity! The comments on the video had a similar sentiment.
One commenter said:
@ajenique：that’s a qualifying reach to start a rumble up in that bathroom miss ma’am 😳🤣 shordy was feeling super bold
@zhanedoe：This could literally be a case study into them. They truly believe that they are the ruler of all, and that their wants are more important than anyone
@lamalibulamalibu：I seriously be ready to fight. I just lack the patience
and this one:
@mayajoii：Yes sis let’s normalize asking them if that’s their real hair
Not all commenters were here for it though, one accused Amani of having the camera set up to record prior to the encounter.
She went as far as alluding to the demonization of the woman.
But others came to Amani’s defense noting that if she meant ill will she would not have blurred the white lady’s face.
Additionally, many of us go to the bathroom to record a selfie, a reel, or two especially if we are at an event, so having the phone out isn’t unusual.
The point is, do not touch someone’s hair, it’s just rude! Has this ever happened to you? Comment below and tell us how you handled it.
