Default Mr Hi-Lo Jamaican Journalist is Upset

The following message is now under the article and all comments seemed to have disappeared.

" The name of our reviewer has been removed following abusive comments and threats. While we stand by our reviewer's honestly-held opinions we have a duty to protect our journalists from defamatory remarks and fear of attack."

Unbelievable, it is ok for Mr Macbeth to be totally offensive and when questioned about it he's being bullied. Give me strength!!!

I think they just needed a reason to justify removing the article, other than admit the obvious - that the journalist and the article was pathetic... lol
