Go to hell,dont tell me how to dress! Kaci Fennel slams Foota Hype

Jamaican beauty queen Kaci Fennell has hit back at dancehall selector Oneil ‘Foota Hype’ Thomas after he accused her of degrading herself with her ‘revealing’ choice of carnival outfit.

Seemingly fueled by recent criticisms of dancehall, the outspoken selector took to Instagram on Monday afternoon, posted a photo of Fennell in her carnival costume and wrote: “I don’t care if this is miss Jamaica or miss world this nuh look good u favor ediot carnival mek u degrade uself exposing uself smfh better u did come a one dance Inna one batty rider #ilovedancehall.”

Fennell, who had posted the photo earlier on Monday as she prepared to hit the road for carnival celebrations in Trinidad and Tobago, slammed Foota for his ‘slut shaming’ and described him as the “type of man” who “is a big part of the problem we are currently facing.”

“Not everything I do will be accepted by everyone and there is nothing wrong with that, the problem lies with this person believing he has the authority to comment or even dictate how a woman should carry herself,” Fennell said.

“Instead of us celebrating us they tear us down, this type of man makes women second guess themselves and that is absolutely unacceptable because our women are heaven sent and it saddens me that situations like this lower their self esteem,” she continued. “I wore this for me! I felt so beautiful and sexy, at no point was I seeking for anyone else’s approval but my own and that’s how it should be always.”

In the post, Fennell also offered words of encouragement for victims of cyber bullying.

“I just wanted to let you know that you are loved, you are wonderfully made, you are beautiful, you are a masterpiece. Don’t you ever let another person ever make you feel otherwise. Continue to be yourself no matter what negativity may come your way. Wait till him see what I wearing tomorrow,” she said.

Dancehall has come under attack recently for its violent and sexually explicit content, and the negative influence it may have on children.

To whom it may concern, 
I never respond to hate like this but something inside me couldn’t allow myself to see this and brush it off like I usually do, especially with what our women have been going through recently. I have grown to completely ignore comments like these. This type of man here is a big part of the problem we are currently facing, not everything I do will be accepted by everyone and there is nothing wrong with that, the problem lies with this person believing he has the authority to comment or even dictate how a woman should carry herself. Instead of us celebrating us they tear us down, this type of man makes women second guess themselves and that is absolutely unacceptable because our women are heaven sent and it saddens me that situations like this lower their self esteem. I wore this for me! I felt so beautiful and sexy (thank you @mariecollete) at no point was I seeking for anyone else’s approval but my own and that’s how it should be always. To any one out there that has been a victim of cyber bullying I just wanted to let you know that you are loved, you are wonderfully made, you are beautiful, you are a masterpiece…. Don’t you ever let another person ever make you feel otherwise. Continue to be yourself no matter what negativity may come your way. Wait till him see what I wearing tomorrow
