Carlton from 'Fresh Prince'

BREAKS UP Barbershop Brawl

8/5/2011 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Alfonso Ribeiro -- aka Carlton on "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" -- laid down the law this week inside an L.A. barbershop ... jumping into action MID-HAIRCUT to break up an expletive-laced brawlfest.

Sources tell TMZ, the fight broke out between two employees at "In the Cuts" in Hollywood -- after a disagreement over which should be turned up louder ... the TV or the radio.

It gets physical pretty quickly -- but Alfonso doesn't miss a beat ... reaching into the frame with his badass gold-watched arm to pull the two guys apart, saying, "Let go, let go."

Eventually, the tempers cooled off -- but we're told Al was so shaken by the ordeal ... he didn't even finish his haircut. The barbershop had no comment. Calls to Alfonso have not been returned.

Black males, or black people in general for that matter, are wired differently. Is anyone really surprised by this? Just more black people behaving badly. No wonder the jails in this country are full of black people. Have to keep these people in line... they're animals otherwise.

So John then it's fair to say that all white people really do teach their young what to do so they can continue with the family tradition of being a child molester?

This is all so ghetto and childish. Alfonso Ribeiro has really come down in the world. And that tacky gold watch he had on was just awful, especially with that loud yellow shirt.

Ghetto!! "Adult" "men" with fragile egos... It's precisely this BS that result in killings... because an *********aid something that was perceived as offensive. Playground mentality.

Why would anybody want to hire nutcases like that.

The shop is located NOT in Hollywood but rather in North Hollywood. Hence the barbershop is more of a "hood" barbershop rather than a mainstream or yuppie barbershop. That said, there is no excuse for the disturbance and the owner should can both the employees who were fighting.

Per Wikopedia: Starting in the late fifties, many of the original Caucasian owners [in North Hollywood] were aging and their children were moving to other areas. School integration in the subsequent years, blockbusting, and subsequent ethnic turmoil encourage many remaining families to move out who in turn were replaced with black and Hispanic families moving from the downtown areas. By the 1990s the demographic changes had almost completely transformed the region.

Dumbasses! This is how people get killed, starting fights over the most ridiculous things; you'd think they were 2 third graders. Hell, third graders wouldn't be this stupid.
