DJ Khaled fired back at critics of his grey hair and unkempt beard after he shared a picture of himself in self-isolation with his family.
The rapper and producer went viral after he posted a snap on Instagram of him posing with his wife Nicole Tuck and their sons, Asahd, three, and Aalam, who was born in January, as they stay at home during the nationwide lockdown in the U.S. amid the coronavirus outbreak.
“Blessing from the KHALED FAMILY and WE THE BEST FOUNDATION @wethebestfdn LOVE ALWAYS! I need a haircut lol (laugh out loud),” Khaled joked, noting that his usually trim hair and beard was grey and scruffy.
After receiving negative comments from followers in the comments, the 44-year-old responded, telling his critics that he would be getting a haircut soon from his barber, even if it meant him wearing a hazmat suit to protect him.
“THEY DONT WANT ME TO GET A HAIRCUT SMH (shaking my head)! I will get (a) haircut I will figure it out soon lol (laugh out loud). Quarantine alert. I’m get my Barbour (sic) a space suit stay tuned!” Khaled star wrote alongside a side-by-side comparison of his signature, clean-shaven beard and his current one. “I NEED MY BEARD OIL ! Lol !”
The rapper’s famous friends came out to support him in the comments on the picture, with Scooter Braun joking: “Survivor season 92”, while Fat Joe wrote: “I’m a come threw (through) give u a cut lol.”
Khaled isn’t the only celebrity embracing grey hair during the lockdown, as Kevin Hart and Kelly Ripa have shared snaps of their natural colour while they stay at home to avoid spreading the Covid-19 virus.
