Jamaica tolerates rape and child abuse but not homosexuality-Diana King
Though she is known for her hit song, Shy Guy, she is far from shy and never refuses to let the world know exactly how she feels.
Diana King, has found herself in hot water on social media because of a slew of posts she made in regards to Jamaica’s attitude towards homosexuals.
“JAMAICA is TOLERANT of RAPE & SEXUAL ABUSE of CHILDREN even INCESTS but NOT of SEX between CONSENTING #LGBT ADULTS,” King wrote.
That post infuriated social media users who vehemently denied her accusation of rape and sexual abuse being accepted among Jamaicans.
One user berated her for post.
“@DIANAKINGDOM this is nonsense--rapists and child molesters get beheaded before the cops come get them--nonsense--don’t speak ill of JA.”
Another user questioned King’s method of speaking on Jamaica’s attitude towards the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.
"@DIANAKINGDOM your way of speaking out on a issue is to attack the entire country to gain what? hostility, more resentment toward LGBT?”
Tweets laced with expletives, were used to bash King for her perceived attack on Jamaica.
The 45-year-old was not phased by the persons who denied her allegations.
“I DON'T NEED SURVEYS • IF U CONSCIOUSLY OBSERVE U WILL SEE the TRUTH • ITS UP to U IF U CHOSE (sic) to ACCEPT IT or DENY IT,” she tweeted clearly not deterred social media users.
In 2012, King declared on her Facebook page that she was a lesbian, much to the attention of Jamaicans, with a number of persons reacting in a positive manner.
She is the first Jamaican artiste to publicly declare a same sex preference.
