A clip from The Today Show’s summer segment “One Minute Summer Hair” has gone viral — for all the wrong reasons.

The video features the show’s hairdresser, Deepica Mutyala, attempting to redesign a black model’s natural hair from “barrel curls” to a “side ponytail.”

She failed. Like, miserably. Like, Never Ever In A Gazillion Years Touch A Black Woman’s Hair Again type of failed.

You’re about to witness comedy. All we can say is, black people — especially you, black women — stop letting people do you like this. Please.
