How Astronaut Neil Armstrong Got One Over On His Thief Barber

Written by on January 24, 2022

People across social media are going crazy over the fact astronaut Neil Armstrong threatened to take his barber to court for stealing his hair.

The event dates back to 2005 when Armstrong discovered his barber Marx Sizemore from Warren County, Ohio, had collected the hair he cut from Armstrong and sold it for $3,000 (£2,317).

The first man to set foot on the moon discovered his barber of 20 years had sold his hair without his consent, and in response, Armstrong told Sizemore to return the hair or donate the money to the charity of Armstrong’s choosing.

With the hair sold to a collector, Sizemore did eventually pay the money back to Armstrong’s chosen charity, despite spending it on ‘bills and stuff’.
