Way to go, Stockholm!!

After realizing Sizzla Kalonji — a reggae artist on the oh so ironic Reggae Compassionate Act tour — sang about killing and burning gays, event organizers cancelled his March 28th show!

Swedish petitioners brought the tackiness to attention, and the organizer agreed that his homophobia breached their code of conduct.

Good for them!! Opinions that promote or lead to violence acts are never cool….

    Sizzla and all human beings are entitled to freedom of speech, freedom of expression, and artistic freedom as afforded to him by the United Nations Human Rights Council. With these rights he does not seek to incite or provoke violence against anyone, but will continue to speak out against injustices where he sees it. Sizzla and other Jamaicans will continue to support the laws of their country and are free to discuss these issues in a legal framework as a citizen of that country. If anyone has an issue with that, take it up with the respective Government and which ever laws they make, even if he doesn’t agree, he will abide by. In the mean time, every attempt to sabotage or cancel a Sizzla show is a form of censorship against him and the musical genre.

    It is very important for you to understand something. The term batty boy was derived from the rise of pedophiles and rape of young boys in Jamaica. That is why the term batty boy is used, so those that embrace this term, therefore embrace the raping and pedophile of young boys. This is one of the main reasons why there is such an outcry against homosexuality because in many cases in Jamaica it has been done where young boys were raped or coerced by tourist into the lifestyle seeking to gain visa or better opportunities. This has also contributed to a rise in gay male prostitution in Jamaica and is prevalent amongst teenagers and youth of Jamaica.

    Lastly, Sizzla just recovered from a horrific accident where he almost lost his life. Whilst some groups wish he had died, millions of fans around the world sent messages of support, good wishes and prayers for him to make a speedy recovery. This tour partly represent a thanks for their prayers and love that gave him the motivation to get well. Let us be clear, Sizzla has a catalogue of over 67 albums and well over 90% of his music is uplifting, positive, speaks of family, empowerment, love, spirituality, and unity. At the same time he is a Rastafarian musician who embraces his faith and plays a pivotal part in the betterment of his society. What would Bob Marley be today if groups protested against him, keeping him in a box, and preventing him from sharing his music? There are two sides to the story, and yes everyone should be entitled to live and express themselves, but we must be respectful of ALL people’s values and principles.
    Thank you for taking the time to hear the other side of the story.

    The above comments from "Truth22" are actually copied and pastied from the press message sent out by Sizzlas tour press message - so very likely are from his management. The blatant lies about the term "batty boy" and linking of homosexuality to peadophilia are higlhy offensive. Don't buy these lies, Perez!
    Sizzla is a hate monger collecting blood money from million dollar tours whilst homosexuals in Jamaica are paying the real price. The fact that his management are here on your blog swiftly trying to cover up this affair with their standard PR message shows how important the very lucrative US market is. Do what we Swedish activists did - expose these arrogant greedy homophobes- Money talks. Help the situation for lgbt-people in Jamaica by NOT supporting an industry that is killing them. And us. Homophobia is real. We've had enough!

    Re: Truth22 – Yes he has the right to express his opinion and the people of Sweden has the right to choose not to listen.. Right?
