Skatta’s offending post, which shows an image of him seated with a look of skepticism on his face, had the words “I see people worshipping a God that impregnated 14-year-old Mary, yet they have issues with Kartel becoming a granddaddy” inscribed on it as well as the caption: “World filled with hypocrites and pretenders”.
Kartel’s verified Instagram account responded to Skatta’s post noting sarcastically: “Skatta, and here I was all this time thinking it was only Elvis! FAAAAAAAAAAKKKK!!!!!”
Dancehall fans did not take kindly to Skatta’s blasphemy, and fans verbally mauled him, raining a barrage of insults down on his head.
Having commented on Skatta’s page before making the repost, Kartel, obviously seeing the onslaught on his Calabar High School compatriot, sought to protect himself from a similar slew of condemnatory remarks from believers in God, by turning off comments on his version which he had captioned: “Sh– lemme turn the comments off. I forgot most black people are religious zealots. No wonder we are the only race enslaved by two different races, totaling 1,400 years and counting. (+ loading #conqueredbythechinese). Sorry folks, forgot you’re still idiots.”
“Yuh only a look a feature from Kartel… me hate ppl weh talk suh,” soap_t_best said, whil starwatchr444 cautioned: “Two wrongs don’t make a right breda. No one have a problem with Kartel we just don’t want teen pregnancy to become a trend in our communities”.
Another follower rashielfella also sought to be the voice of reason, noting that Jamaica has laws that prohibit sexual activity involving minors.
“Skatta, the main issue here is that a 14 year old Mary was legal at the time. A 15 year old Palmer Jnr is illegal, based on laws of the land. And, that’s where I have a problem. My point is not about u believing there is a God, yes or no. That’s a matter of opinion,” he said.
“But where I find it hypocritical, is bcuz it’s a boy he is praised and seen as he did something worthy. But if it was a girl at 15 then someone would be charged with statutory rape. That’s where I see the double standards,” he added.
