Jenaae Jackson, recipient of the Best Figure award in the Miss Jamaica World 2013 contest, says she has no hard feelings towards Dr Dayton Campbell, the member of parliament for North West St Ann, who made an unflattering comment about her on the social networking website, Twitter.

“I think it is very unfortunate that a man in his position would say something about a contestant who is running to represent Jamaica. I am confident and I know that I have a great figure and I feel I’m deserving of the prize,” Jackson told The Gleaner yesterday.

Reacting to Jackson being adjudged the contestant with the best shape in the pageant, Campbell on Sunday night posted on his Twitter page:

“bout best shape, she shape like the Jamaican economy.”

The comment by the MP triggered widespread condemnation from Twitter users who regarded the post as irresponsible and inappropriate. Continue Reading….

When this story was brought to my attention this afternoon I had to walk away from my desk and leave the office for a couple of minutes.

For those of you who don’t know the Jamaican economy is in a terrible state at the moment. Dr Dayton Campbell you are just WRONG! Instead of tweeting about a Miss Jamaica World contestant’s shape shouldn’t you be focusing on pushing through laws/changes that will make a positive difference in the lives of your constituents?

Right now there are many Jamaicans who are struggling  to put food on the table thanks to rising costs etc, but instead of focusing on the important issues that affect’s the citizens this fool chooses to spend his days tweeting nonsense.

And to the Miss Jamaica World organisers… ‘Best Figure Award’ … REALLY??  I can’t…

  1. They need to change the name of the contest, it’s terrible. They need some curvy women in there.

  2. Maybe he was saying that people should be focusing on the economy and not some beauty contestant’s figure. Ask him about the economy instead. It’s obvious her she is in good shape but what good is it for all?
    He was trying to be clever rather than offensive, or sarcastic or whatever.

  3. “Maybe he was saying that people should be focusing on the economy and not some beauty contestant’s figure.”

    No believe me he wasn’t saying that. He is part of the reason why the Jamaican economy is in turmoil, like many politicians are down there.

  4. I trust he remained saying that persons should be focusing on both the economy but not such beauty contestant’s shape..
