#MyCoconutStand trends on Twitter as Jamaicans show off beauty on island

Jamaicans are nothing if not confident and proud of who they are as a people. So when the Twitter account of American track star, Sha’Carri Richardson liked a very offensive tweet about them, instead of taking offence, they rallied together to showcase the beauty of the island.

Richardson was dealing with trolling from the Jamaicans after she finished dead last in what was supposed to be her “comeback” race when her Twitter account liked this tweet; “Not y’all Jamaicans still talking s*** when y’all gotta walk barefoot to your coconut stand every day for a living,” the post says.

A Jamaican Twitter user had the perfect response to Richardson’s snub and encouraged others to join in.

The result? Beautiful photos showcasing some awesome spots on the island.
