A young boy’s request for a buzz cut turned into a heartwarming message about love and acceptance after it went viral on social media.

On Friday, Jax Rosebush asked his mom if he could cut his hair to look just like his best friend, Reddy. The 5-year-old didn’t see a difference in skin color, just a difference in hairstyle.

He even told his mom, Lydia, that his teacher probably wouldn’t be able to tell the two apart.

Jax went to get the haircut on Tuesday, and Reddy tagged along for moral support, CNN affiliate WAVE 3 News reported.

Lydia shared the story on Facebook last Friday with a picture of the boys standing side by side.

“He thought it would be so hilarious to confuse his teacher with the same haircut,” she wrote. “If this isn’t proof that hate and prejudice is something that is taught I don’t know what is. The only difference Jax sees in the two of them is their hair.”
