New Bolt Family Images Stir up more Controversy !

Jamaica’s Usain Bolt was depicted as a woman just recently in a Virgin Media advertisement and there have been many heated discussions since the release of that commercial. 

Many Jamaicans utilized their favourite Facebook groups and websites to voice their opinions. Some of the comments included:

“Why does every successful black man have to dress up in drag”

  

“This is pure crucification of the Black Male Image. They are trying to get the world ready for the slaughter of the black man and woman and they want even black people to agree that we should be destroyed. They are fighting to get back to the pre Million Man March days. High murder rates in black neighborhoods, high drug use and high unemployment and abortions.”

Many feel him being depicted as a female emasculates him though his head was actually superimposed on the body of a female in the video.

Though we can appreciate the humorous aspect of the video and images, many remain angry.

See one recent image below:

A deliberate attempt to stir the emotions of the black community.

Let us not be too quick to judge; as much as some of would like to say ‘bolt gaan,’ the fact is that he hasn’t been revealed whether he actually wore the dress or the photo were the product of a computer software. What I can deduce from this however, is that by allowing his image to be displayed in the feminine gender shows that Bolt has a sense of adventure that is probably a bit too daring for some of us.

so what does it mean that he, dressed up like a baby??? LMBO come on people are being to sensitive. The message had nothing to do with him being gay or being a woman, making him less masculine, or anything to do with race. If that’s the case, then whats the message about the baby, the father, and the little son, he also dressed up to be. Geesh people are you bored?

Obviously Bolt is not insecure but quite secure about his masculinity. People should just take a chill pill! if it does not bother him, it should not bother anyone else!

So I’m guessing none of the persons having “issues” with this (which is laughable cause really who cares?)have never watched, refuses to watch and abhors Madea? Curious because Madea sold out twice at Carib, in the same week…oh what sad lives you “issuers” all lead.

It’s an advertisement folks…Eddie Murphy has played up to ten characters in a movie including women. Nobody says he’s gay? What is with the intolerance and lack of humour? It’s 2014 black people…grow up a little bit!

…and yet these same ppl who are criticizing Bolt are the same ppl who will pay their hard earn money to go watch other men dress up like women at Centre Stage, Green Gables, Carib, Stages Production etc… and have hilarious fun while watching! Whats the difference?

Eddie Murphy does that for almost all his movies and lots of people watch and enjoy it, just seems different to see Usain someone I look up to dress like that.

This is all CG (Computer Generated) You know how easy it is to put another persons face on someone else body? People saying how “oh the lady in the picture tuff and build like a man” really? You how many Jamaican moms out there look like they can break the Hulk across their knee? All these movies out showing CG Animated stuff and we watch it but just because it’s in this nature we think otherwise. What is this the 40’s?
