Young M.A.’s barber also responded to backlash after online users criticized him for initially sharing the concerning video. wrote Fatsdabarber said, “Y’all got so much to say as if I’m trying to embarrass my dawg. If she didn’t want me to record, she would’ve told me. Y’all don’t know our bond nor our friendship.”
