JiDion and his barber were removed from the US Open for violating rules.
According to the US Open's code of conduct, attendees must refrain from "any inappropriate behavior that creates a disruptive atmosphere for other guests" or "will be subject to ejection without refund and/or possible arrest and may be prohibited from attending future US Opens."

“When someone saw it, security went to the two individuals. They were escorted out of their seats and then off the grounds for disruption of play,” U.S. Tennis Association director of communications Brendan McIntyre told USA Today.
“There's a first time time for anything," McIntryle added.
Upon seeing the video, people immediately recognized JiDion as the viral prankster with 5.8 million subscribers on YouTube. This is not the first time JiDion has gotten his haircut in a public setting.
He has previously pulled the same prank at a Timberwolves vs. Mavericks NBA game and during a college lecture.
