Former Miss Jamaica World runner-up blasted for comments about Jamaica

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.

Personal opinion: What people highlight about Jamaica is what they would highlight about their own family. As adults we have a choice. Highlight the negatives or highlight the positives. They are both real. To extend the thought: There are skeletons in every closet, but we do not have tea-parties to discuss our “duppies”. She, being on a public stage had a great opportunity to speak good of her country and she didn’t. her outbursts say more of her character than about Jamaica. Of course, I could be wrong.

How can you be offended by the truth. It’s her opinion and much of what she is saying is true. It’s because she’s a beauty queen and young that she’s been criticized.

Too many people living in denial in Jamaica. Everybody outside knows about the beaches and Bob Marley. There is little knowledge of the struggle of everyday Jamaicans. So, Bravo to this lady for calling a cat a damn cat.

Well she isn’t lying! Why get angry just because someone speaks the truth and the worldwide stage! Try holding the government accountable instead of hating on someone speaking the truth!

Don’t know how people like to believe Jamaica is all beach and sunshine… From my experience, we Jamaicans can be some vile people when it comes to a sense of humor. And I have lived all over the world.

I totally agree with this young lady. Jamaica economy is very poor, and the crime rate is totally out of control. People are not being honest, they love to sweep the truth under the rug. If you meet in an accident in Jamaica u are f*****k. And they will kill you for just looking at them. Clean up the country , it’s a beautiful place.
