Controversial mustache shaved off by US envoy to South Korea

Months after his facial hair sparked off a debate about the colonial past of the country, US ambassador to South Korea, Harry Harris shaved off his mustache. The mustache had been associated with Japan’s colonization of South Korea from 1910-1945 and had hence been criticized. He had his mustache removed at a barbershop in Seoul and said he did so to keep cool while wearing a face mask in summer.

All you people commenting how it’s stupid and that they shouldn’t be offenddd by hair don’t realize they’re a different culture and that they’re, in essence, offended by them being offended, enough to comment here lol And I’m offended about you all being offended about the Koreans being offended.
