  2. The majority of people believed there was nothing funny about the video
  3. Some even felt the women were laughing because disrespecting Black women is often made into a joke
  4. These men would probably never snatch the wig of their elder
  5. What's more, if the wigs had been secured with glue, serious damage could have been done
