Which skin was vul­gar Spice in?

Jamaica Gleaner - - NEWS -

THE ED­I­TOR, Sir:

I WANT to make it clear from the out­set that I am no expert on dance­hall mu­sic, ex­cept for time and again when I will ‘buss’ two lines on so­cial me­dia for laugh­ter.

How­ever, I was privy to a video in­ter­view posted on so­cial me­dia and on the In­sta­gram page of Grace Hamil­ton, aka Spice. In the video, a seem­ingly up­set Spice went into the gut­ter when she told the in­ter­viewer to go “suck” his mother. It would seem to me that based on what was said in the video, the in­ter­viewer or the en­tity he rep­re­sented had made some prior com­ments about Spice, about which she was livid.

Spice, your be­hav­iour and ut­ter­ances on that in­ter­view set were vul­gar and crude. You owe this young man an apol­ogy, as well as the many young girls you in­tended to reach via your foun­da­tion.

Surely, you could have han­dled this bet­ter. If you dis­agreed with the young man’s crit­i­cism, you could have sim­ply de­clined the in­ter­view.

Hav­ing gone back and looked at a re­port of the launch of the Grace Hamil­ton Foun­da­tion, Spice was quoted as say­ing, “I want to sep­a­rate the Grace Hamil­ton Foun­da­tion to­tally from Spice.” And so I ask, which skin were you in when you made those vul­gar re­marks?
