On Wednesday, a white high school wrestling referee in New Jersey made a black wrestler choose between cutting his dreadlocks or forfeiting his match. The wrestler, Andrew Johnson, had his dreadlocks cut.

Saturday morning, New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy, along with many others on social media, were sharing their thoughts about the incident and sending messages of support to Johnson.
