Grief-stricken Stacy and John Chadwick had asked staff from Mo’s Barbers to trim his hair.
But as a hairdresser from the shop cut Cameron’s hair, his friend filmed it and posted it on Facebook.
One outraged friend responded to the video: “I cannot believe my friend trusted you to cut her precious son’s hair before she laid him to rest and you took a video … disgusting.”
The shop later apologised and said: “I hope everyone forgives us, especially Cameron’s family.”
