“He was feeling nervous about getting the cut, wondering what he would look like,” Ray said.


Ray said she tweets photos of Thomas all the time and did not expect this particular tweet to be shared so widely.

She added that Thomas also found it “very unexpected”, but thinks it is “a good thing” that the tweet went viral.
