“So, I started doing something a little bit different with my hair. Just a little bit,” Matt said. “I got this new hair apparatus for my wife right, and she was like ‘You should use it’ and I started using it and it just gave me a little extra zhoosh.”

The hate didn’t end there, Matt also said a viewer sent him a very long message bashing several things about him but finishes with “I am not trying to abase (sic) or degrade you in any way.” and “Have a nice day.”
