Beenie Man, one of the most controversial Jamacian dancehall/reggae singers who in the 90′s sang songs with lyrics advocating the killing of gay people, has now changed his ways and has issued a YouTube apology to the LGBT community.
It is not a surprise that Jamaican singers tend to be almost all homphobic, the country is one of the most homphobic places in the world. With a high gay murder rate. Like Buju Banton who is still vicously homophobic, Beenie Man has had many concerts cancelled and protested around the world because of his anti-gay lyrics. Which advocated ”shoot” and “hang” people he abuses as “queers”, “faggots” and ”bum-fuckers”.
But those days are now long behind him and Beenie has a whole new out look on the LGBT in which he apologizes for his past hate.
In May of this year, Beenie made YouTube apology saying:
“Let me make this clear…I have nothing against no one. I respect each and every human being regardless of which race or creed, regardless of which religious belief…regardless of which sexual preference you have including gay and lesbian people.”
