Meet “Black Goku”, aka Shaquille Dent, an animation student at the Cleveland Institute of Art who’s anime inspired hairstyle has made him an internet sensation. Buzzfeed quotes Shaquille as as saying, “It’s funny — the reason this went viral was because of all of the haters. They wanted to bash me for my hair but ended up promoting it instead.” Although his hair was originally inspired by the Dragonball Z character, Shaquille is now paying homage to Yu-Gi-Oh with his new blonde look.
