Dancehall deejay Beenie Man baby mama and President of the People’s National Party Youth Organisation, Krystal Tomlinson had social media in an uproar when she tweeted that Prime Minister of Jamaica reminded her of Adolf Hitler.
“Holness’ track record suggests that he is a prime minister who has scant regard for the court, the constitution and the separation of powers doctrine. Reminds me of Adolph Hitler and his approach to designing a ‘New’ Germany. Just be a big man and admit you were wrong, Mr Holness.”
The tweet was in reference to the Constitutional Court’s striking down in April of the controversial National Identification and Registration (NIDS) law, after deeming it to be in breach of the constitutional rights of Jamaicans.
The backlash and there were also some who defended her comments. We have highlighted two.
