But that’s what happened when John and Stacy Chadwick asked Mo’s Barbers in Pemberton, England to cut their 15-year-old son Cameron’s hair after he was killed in a moped crash last month in Wigan. Cameron, described by his family as the “happiest, funniest, loving lad,” died when his moped hit a lamppost.


The video then was posted online and shared on social media, horrifying the boy’s grieving parents and disgusting friends of the family.
When a grieving couple asked a local barbershop to cut their dead teenage son’s hair for his funeral, they never expected video of the trim to appear online.
Instead, he took a friend along and that sicko shot video as the barber worked. Mo’s sent a barber to cut Cameron’s hair as he lay in his coffin but he didn’t go alone.

“I cannot believe my friend trusted you to cut her precious son’s hair before she laid him to rest and you took a video… disgusting,” one friend wrote on the Mo’s Barbers Facebook page, which has since been taken down.

Mo’s has since apologized for the incident and said the barber’s video-shooting buddy has been “banned from our shop for live (sic).”
