Was former Miss World and current Cabinet Minister, Lisa Hanna, wrong for posting this picture on social media? That’s the big question.
A Facebook photo of Jamaica’s Youth and Culture Minister (Lisa Hannah) wearing a bikini started a social media debate over the appropriateness of posting such an image online as a public figure.
Her son, Alexander Panton, reportedly took the picture after the Reggae Marathon, and the image of the politician in a yellow two piece and Bob Marley top appeared on December 6.
One Facebook user (Annette Apple Green) wrote: “The minister does not seem too acutely aware of her public persona… very nice but i think she should resist the urge to display these photos”.
The Jamaica Gleaner reported that Senator Marlene Malahoo Forte said: “No need to be uncharitable to our Miss World. She is appropriately attired for the beach”. However, Malahoo took to Twitter to say her quote was taken out of context.
The Youth and Culture Minister has not addressed the controversy on Twitter or Facebook
