This is absolutely sad, the disregard for holy tradition seems to be at its peak.
We should not judge as some priests and bishops cannot grow beards, or if they do so, they come down with infections.

p.s. This is a recently ordained Antiochian Bishop who is part of world orthodoxy.
Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me a sinner.
