Softball Player “Embarrassed And Disrespected” After Umpires Ask Her To Cut Braids (Video)

A high school softball player Nicole Pyles in North Carolina was forced to cut her hair during a game.

The umps came up to the girl’s coach asking about her braids.

An inning later she was asked to remove the beads in compliance with the National Federation of State High School Association’s policy, or she wouldn’t be allowed to finish the game.

The girl said, “My team, all of my friends were cutting out some of my beads. They snatched some of the beads out of my hair. I felt just so embarrassed and disrespected and just distraught at that point.”
