SB 10.54.36
kṛṣṇāntikam upavrajya
 dadṛśus tatra rukmiṇam
tathā-bhūtaṁ hata-prāyaṁ
 dṛṣṭvā saṅkarṣaṇo vibhuḥ
vimucya baddhaṁ karuṇo
 bhagavān kṛṣṇam abravīt




Translation:
As the Yadus approached Lord Kṛṣṇa, they saw Rukmī in this sorry condition, practically dying of shame. When the all-powerful Lord Balarāma saw Rukmī, He compassionately released him and spoke the following to Lord Kṛṣṇa.

SB 10.54.37
asādhv idaṁ tvayā kṛṣṇa
 kṛtam asmaj-jugupsitam
vapanaṁ śmaśru-keśānāṁ
 vairūpyaṁ suhṛdo vadhaḥ

Translation:
[Lord Balarāma said:] My dear Kṛṣṇa, You have acted improperly! This deed will bring shame on Us, for to disfigure a close relative by shaving off his mustache and hair is as good as killing him.

Purport:
Omniscient Balarāma knew that Rukmī was the guilty party, but to encourage the lamenting Rukmiṇī He decided to gently reproach Śrī Kṛṣṇa
