A former Miss Jamaica World runner-up has gotten herself in some hot water for comments she made about the Chikungunya virus plaguing the island and the country’s economic situation.
During an interview with Physique TV, beauty queen Rosina Casserly made several comments about Jamaica that seemed to rub many viewers the wrong way.
“Oh my God, in Jamaica they have Chik V. Have you heard about that? It’s like a disease where you get arthritis and they made a dance for it cuz when you have it you’re like bent over” she laughingly said.
“We also have no money. Come to Jamaica – you can be poor”.
“What else can happen if you go to Jamaica?” she asked herself during the interview – to which she responded “Escaping from a robbery”
She also cheerfully described Jamaicans as professional party goers despite not having any money.
Viewers wasted no time to voice their opinions both good and bad about the video – Some of their comments included:
Why didn’t you highlight some positives instead of the negatives? This was not even funny.
She does not even sound Jamaican….she has no sense!
I can’t believe the people who are criticizing this young lady. I was born and raised in Jamaica and I know when to take offence. She said nothing wrong.
She dis wi country big time
This is not at all funny. I am disappointed that this is the best she had to say.
I don’t find her funny, her jokes are dry as hell..thirsty..maybe she needs some water..
Calm down ppl, she is Jamaican, light hearted statements n she never sey nothin that’s not true nor did she diss the island, mi si ppl ina the comments all a wish her death..smh sense
Rosina placed 2nd in the 2007 Miss Jamaica World Pageant.
