The #SpiceGang, a collective name for the devoted fans of the Queen Of Dancehall Spice, aren’t tolerating any form of digital disrespect
The gang came out in full-effect on Twitter, in defense of the Queen of the Dancehall Spice, after a platform user questioned her suitability for hosting an Instagram live session with Jamaica’s Minister of Health Christopher Tufton to discuss issues related to COVID-19.
The user accused of such treason is, (Susana Haye) @susanadiel, whose profile highlights her as a Seventh Day Adventist Christian, a Librarian, a mother, lover of sports and music, wrote in response to a flyer Spice and Minister Tufton had shared promoting the live session, “Why @spiceofficial ? Why not someone less controversial and one that most people are comfortable with?”
Immediately, fans tweeted their disapproval at what was seemingly discrimination against Spice.
“Don’t mind her. She’s clearly feeling some type of way it’s not her” said one user.
“I’m happy she did it. The viewing alone was massive and I’m sure more persons are at ease now. It’s great that she used her platform to get the information out as well. Most of the questions asked were answered. Ms. Hamilton did her thang”, said another.
One Spice defender asked, “Why not? Spice is #BigArtiste, Spice have more youth listening to her than to the GoJ and Opp together, Spice speaks with clarity and sense. I applaud the Minister for this initiative.”.
To which Haye replied, “And we cant find nobody else less controversial and a better role model to do it? Come on man, we can do better”.
An in Queen-like fashion, Grace took her issue directly to the source, she said,”Who else would you rather? Since the messenger is more important than the message in 2020″.
