Tonight will be one of the biggest nights of former North Carolina forward Brice Johnson's life – he's projected to be taken in the mid-to-late first round of the NBA Draft. While he is probably enjoying this glorious evening, however, the internet is roasting him for getting his hair cut today at Supercuts.
Sponsorship tweets happen all the time. It's natural. This, however, is an odd pairing.
It seems Johnson was quickly aware he was about to spend the night getting roasted.

@bomani_jones this seems like a, "who's mans is this" moment— undecided (@undecidedtd) June 23, 2016
Johnson, a unanimous All-American this year, is a springy athlete with a soft touch around the basket, and he runs the floor well. He should be an impact player in the league. Keep your head up, Brice—and maybe, if you keep getting cut at Supercuts, just don't tweet about it anymore.
