Turns out, it wasn’t planned at all.
Action Bronson recently caused an uproar online, after sharing a picture of his freshly shaven face. The New York chef-turned-rapper hadn’t wore a bare face in over 12 years, and for some it was uncomfortable to some to see him without the signature scruffy red beard.

Stoned beyond belief. And you know, when you go and try to give yourself a shape-up, it usually doesn’t work out well. One wrong move. I used the #3. What was I doing using a #3 on a fuckin’ beard like that? Of couse it was gonna take a big chunk out of it. So then I had to just take it all off. I hadn’t seen my face for 12 years. I forgot what I looked like. But I am a hunk. And I’m hot, there’s no doubt about it,” Bronson humbly explained.
