Haircut-For-Hugs Barber Asked To Stop Giving Free Cuts To Homeless

US Politics & Gov't  (tags: usa, haircuts for hugs )

- 1755 days ago -
For 25 years, Anthony Cymerys has headed down to Hartford's Bushnell Park to offer haircuts to the homeless. His price was always the same - a haircut for a hug. "It really is love. I love these guys. You know I love you, right?" Cymerys recently said.

How idiotic. If someone wants to do something good for people why should he be stopped? Absurd.

I saw Anthony Cymerys on Australian TV this morning what a wonderful man. Most of Australian will fall in love with him. He is someone who really cares and puts others above himself. He found forgotten souls and gave them dignity with a simple haircut or shave and a hug.

Wonder if these officials are just trying to find a way they can profit from this wonderful man's generosity?? Maybe reelection press would be enough?? Noted and thank you

Um, sorry this is OLD NEWS from June and has long since been resolved. He is back and giving haircuts.

This so-called "news" post seems just to stir sh** up.
