EXCLUSIVE

Michelle Obama's flat-top rocking nephew needs to get with the times -- so says one of the greatest flat-top rockers ever ... Kid from Kid 'n Play ... who tells us, the hairstyle is embarrassingly out of fashion and needs to die.

In case you weren't watching ... news cameras captured "First Nephew" Avery Robinson sporting a hi-top fade while watching his uncle Barack get sworn in for the second time.

But Kid -- real name Chris Reid -- tells us, it's a throwback 'do that never should've happened ... "I think that flat-tops should not come back ... It's an old style that now looks stupid to me."

Kid added, he doesn't want to "blatantly bash anyone" ... but said Avery needs "to get out of the time warp."

The flat-top

  • Bring it back
  • Let it die
Little does Kid know -- the flat-top is enjoying a massive resurgence in sports ... especially in the NBA, where pros like Brandon Jennings and Iman Shumpert have resurrected the classic hairstyle.

So we gotta ask ...

YOU SUCK ALONG WITH THE FOUL FOLKS WHO RIDICULE THE KID ALONG WITH YOU!!

Avery's hair style isn't even close to a flat top! The only person who can rock a flat top is Bart Simpson.

So Kid doesn't like it now but it was good enough for him some years ago. Talk about being a hypocrite.

I think it's none of his ****ing business, and people should have their hair however they want to have it, people shouldn't care what some has been has to say about it. Plus, who the hell does he think he is talking **** about someone, as if his opinion should even matter.

someone remind him that when black guys don't want to shave their heads bald, or get braids, or grow dreadlocks, the "high top fade" look is what happens to our hair???

He's just salty because if he tried to grow it back he'd end up looking like he got an ashtray on his head.
Male pattern baldness just ain't as sexy as it used to be.

Seriously? Someone actually tried to make a story out of this? Who the hell cares if some "celebrity" thinks a hair style is out of fashion or not, if the person with the hair that way likes it then who are you to say they should change it just because you think it's old news?
