Interesting development.

Are you kidding me?

You "feel bad for his wife and kids" because he shaved his beard?

Not because he shaved his beard but because he is seriously confused on where he is heading in life.

The shaved beard is just another aspect in this confused man's struggle for figuring himself out.

I myself don't have a beard - but I didn't first grow it out real long for a few years only to later tweet pics of it taken off.

And what about Tzitzis? Yarmulka? The tone it is written in suggests that this issue is much more then a beard .

Well, then that right there gives you the right to judge him.

He is entitled to do whatever he wants to do in his life. As a matter of fact, what's the difference to me whether he is a religious jew or not?

Adam Sandler is jewish but not frum, and you don't hear anyone complaining about that!

What strikes a cord here is that Matisyahu became religious and portrayed himself as an Orthodox jew, only to then pretty much revert back and go on to act differently. If he clearly defines who he is and what he stands for people wouldn't mind as much.

Additionally, my understanding is that a public figure such as Matisyahu who thrives on getting attention and adoration from the masses is asking to be judged on thing that he does in public (twitter?).

With all due respect, a person's endeavor to define one's self is often a life-long process.

People deviate from the "accepted norm" (whatever that may be) and then they can deviate back or deviate further.

Hey, this is probably a concept with which your familiar: repentance/day of atonement.

I'm not saying that I'm perfect. But I don't splash my life across the internet and across the world.
Thus, my decisions/choices/mistakes are personal and affect pretty much only myself.

As a public figure (by choice), people expect more from him.

You probably don't "splash [your] life across the internet and across the world" because you're not a music artist who has had a top 40 hit and who has made countless appearances on radio, tv and film.

Btw, are you aware that Matisyahu Hamacabbi (whose victory over the Yevanim we will soon be celebrating) was an African American (Actually, america wasn't around then!) according to Matisyahu?
