All The Love: These Kids Are Going Viral For The Cutest Reason

The world is freaking out over these five-year-old friends with matching haircuts.

Jax and Reddy are just a couple of little bros in Jacksonville, Kentucky, who wanted to pull a prank on their teacher. Their master plan: Jax would shave his head to match Reddy’s, and their teacher would never be able to tell the two apart. Classroom chaos would surely ensue.

There was just one hiccup in their scheme. Reddy is black, and Jax is white.

“He thought it would be so hilarious to confuse his teacher with the same haircut,” Lydia Rosebush, Jax’s mom, wrote on her Facebook page. “If this isn’t proof that hate and prejudice is something that is taught I don’t know what is. The only difference Jax sees in the two of them is their hair.” That post went viral, shared thousands of times and covered by news blogs and local TV stations around the world.

“This is total insanity!” Rosebush told the local WMC Action News 5. “I just made the post because my kid is hilarious and cute. I never anticipated this. It just struck me as funny that Jax doesn’t even notice that Reddy is a different color. When he describes Reddy he never mentions it. I thought with all the hate in the world today, we could use this lesson from an almost 5-year-old.”

A kid’s haircut isn’t exactly the solution to racism in America today, but damn, it’s still pretty cute.

“It’s really cool to see that move on from our family right into his relationships with his friends,” Kevin Weldon, Reddy’s father, said. “There’s an innocence children have that sometimes we lose. If we could get some of that back, I think it would be amazing.”
