Bishop ‘hurt to the core’
SOME RELIGIOUS LEADERS yesterday joined the chorus of Barbadians rebuking the Trojan Riddim Mix music video.
Like Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley, Anglican Bishop Michael Maxwell called for the artistes involved to make a public apology and for the immediate removal of the near two-month-old video, but which attracted mainstream public outrage from Monday.
“This video is very offensive and insulting to who we are and what we truly stand for as Barbadians; and for such a song and video to be produced by some of our top artistes hurts to the core. I really could not believe what my ears were hearing and my eyes were seeing and who were the ones involved.
“I personally believe that our nation deserves an apology from these artistes for producing and releasing such a distasteful, vulgar and uncivil video with such a high level of obscene language that sends a negative and damaging message viral as it incites immorality, gun violence, the seeking of revenge and taking the lives of those referred to as informants or snitches,” he said.
