Action Bronson just totally shaved off his huge beard and the internet is in shock
There are plenty of people who claim that they don't care what people think of them, however, it can be difficult to believe any of them. But, when it comes to Action Bronson, it would be pretty hard - not to mention foolish - to try and claim otherwise.
The New York-based rapper is known for his brash attitude, unique appearance and for simply not having a care in the world. On the face of it, Bronson is living his best life. After years of working as a chef, he stumbled into rap and is now an internationally recognised artist who also has a hugely successful food show and cookbook. So, it would be fair to say that Action Bronson has nothing to worry about.
However, while he is instantly recognisable, with his huge beard, large frame and shaved head helping him stand out from the crowd, Bronson does admit to having his insecurities:
"Am I insecure? I would say everyone is insecure about something or other.
"Me, I don’t like it when I get too hot and my shirt clings to me. I don’t like when things cling. Like, no matter what, I’m fat. But when shirts start clinging it makes you feel even fatter and it looks like you’re fat.
"It’s a crazy psychology because I already look fat – I am fat. You know what I’m saying?"
Despite his fears about his weight, the 34-year-old admits to simply loving his food.
"I eat a lot of little things, or I eat a little bit of a lot of things. I love to indulge in many different foods and flavours at once.
"I’m not the type of guy who goes to a restaurant and orders just a steak and goes home, I’m going to order 7-8 different dishes. Pick and taste each one and then leave a bunch of it on the plate.
"I just need to have an abundance of things in front of me."
Bronson's outlandish personality and outspoken nature have seen him come in for criticism from some circles, but it's also part of the reason that he has such a cult-like following. Not only this, but his appearance has also contributed to his often-comedic nature. However, despite the beard being a large part of his selling potential, the rapper took to his social media to reveal that he had shaved the entire thing off and.... well, he looks like a chicken nugget.
Safe to say that fans of the rapper couldn't quite get their head around the look.
For his part, Bronson said that the beard would be back in a week and that people should quit hating just because he is a "hunk."
Let's hope the beard is back soon as Bronson without a beard just isn't right - it's like Trump without his "quiff" or Kim Kardashian without her trademark derriere. Some things simply belong together.
