Bounty Killer also had a long and scathing caption for the post in which he chided the government for not doing its job.

“Government and society go deal wid di problems unuh sh*t system created I’m done talking about Jamaica’s plights and issues after 3 decades,” he wrote.

He added; “afterall I’m a entertainer not an educator I chooses to teach ppl I could say whatever the fuck I wishes.”

He then went on to blast corrupt politicians, law enforcement officers, pastors, lawyers, and poor parenting, the lack of employment, the poor educational system, and mainstream media and social media for continuing to promote negative things including “pornography and violence.”

He asserted that if they are “not facing no backlash why should I or fellow entertainers IDGAF.”
