Alan Maloney (born in 1978) is an American High School Wrestling Referee from Buena, New Jersey. Alan came into the news headlines when he forced a student wrestler to shave dreadlocks. Furthermore, the 40-year-old referee asked Buena Regional High School wrestler Andrew Johnson to choose between cutting his dreadlocks or left the match.

In addition, this behavior also captured in the video. Later, the journalist Mike Frankel shared the video on his Twitter account.

A referee wouldn’t allow Andrew Johnson of Buena @brhschiefs to wrestle with a cover over his dreadlocks. It was either an impromptu haircut, or a forfeit. Johnson chose the haircut, then won by sudden victory in OT to help spark Buena to a win. pic.twitter.com/f6JidKNKoI

In the video, Johnson is seen getting his dreadlocks cut off before he led his team to an overtime victory. According to a source, the wrestler came to compete with his dreadlocks in a wrap. However, Alan Maloney still ordered that Johnson should shave his hair completely.
His behavior gained him a lot of hate on the internet. Moreover, Alan also accused of racist. This was not the first time that Maloney’s actions are criticized by the people.
In fact, he allegedly used a racial slur against another referee back in 2016. When the authorities asked him then Alan said that he didn’t remember anything. Alan Maloney received a 1-year suspension for his racial actions during the match.
