That is a difficult choice. I don’t know whether the ref is allowed to do this or not. Whether the video is racist or not, we leave it up to you, but to us it sounds kind of shocking. If dreadlocks were a problem, then the wrestler would have been told by his trainer. Either way, this is a quite controversial event. What would you choose in his place? If I had some glorious dreadlocks, there is no way in the world I would give them up for something as mundane as wrestling :).
