Ben Roethlisberger’s being put on blast for getting a haircut in public during the COVID-19 pandemic … with PA Governor Tom Wolf calling out the QB for not following the state’s shutdown measures.
Of course, Big Ben was excited to show off his new, trimmed look in a hype video on Monday … which symbolized the Steelers QB finally being back to 100% after an elbow injury.
The video showed a mask-less Ben in a Sewickley barbershop getting his hair and beard trimmed up over the weekend … which is a big no-no, considering hair salons in Allegheny County haven’t gotten the green light to reopen yet.
When asked if Ben’s visit will spark an investigation into the barbershop … Wolf explained he’s not happy about the situation.
“My concern is just a general concern,” Wolf said on Tuesday. “Anybody who puts himself or herself into harm’s way is something that I think we have to try to avoid.”
“When you go to something like a barbershop and you’re not protected, I don’t care who you are, the chances of that virus actually wreaking havoc on your life increases.”
“I don’t personally think any Pennsylvanian ought to take that chance. I certainly don’t want to take that chance myself.”
Ben had been growing his hair out ever since he went down with the injury in September … vowing to keep the caveman look until he was officially back.
