“I won’t name the salon as that’s not fair to other professionals who work there but blimey, to take your politics out on someone’s hair!”
\u201cI\u2019ve just had a haircut end abruptly, leaving me with an uneven hairline after I said I worked for @GBNEWS \n\nI won\u2019t name the salon as that\u2019s not fair to other professionals who work there but blimey, to take your politics out on someone\u2019s hair!\u201d

James O’Brien was one of the people who replied to the post, with the presenter writer: “Sorry to see this, Mitch. Perhaps they thought you wanted it one-sided?”
Others were just as unsympathetic, with one joking: “Shouldn't you be used to someone leaving part way through a job?”
Another added: “Please do name them. I could do with a haircut and they seem like the sort of people who deserve business from good people.”
Some were appalled by the barber’s behaviour, though, with one saying: “I’m a barber and honestly this is pretty vile tbh. I have every walk of politics and life through our doors and unless someone’s a massively offensive c*** whilst in the shop I don’t care.”
The post comes as GB News nears its first year on air, and it’s been a chaotic one for the new channel. It was hit with a string of early technical problems as well as advertising boycotts and the departure of Andrew Neil.
