No more Mr. Nice Guy.
Actor Lance Gross had to go through quite the makeover for a new role, and when people didn’t have the reaction he was probably looking for, he had some words for them. And by “them,” I mean women.
It all started when the actor shared this picture of himself without his facial hair on the set of his new project. No word yet on what it is, but it called for a high-top fade and a bare face:

As you can see from the hashtags he used in the caption, Gross knew he looked quite different, so he did poke fun at himself. But I guess some of the commentary from women, including “No,” “Grow the beard back please” and jokes started to get to him, because the 36-year-old decided to flip things around and critique the ladies who had something to say about his new look. This despite the fact that a number of men also had their fair share of jokes.
In his original post, Gross said this:
He deleted his comment and reposted it, minus the typo and followed up with further comments and retweets:
However, his response and request that women start posting pictures without the aid of makeup, “enhancements” and weave drew some backlash. It also motivated a number of women to do just that to let him know he…well, tried it. Check out some of the women’s au naturel responses by hitting the flip.
