Andrew Holness has issued an apology over an ‘inappropriate action’ after his Instagram account liked a photo of a woman in a bikini.
The Prime Minister of Jamaica went viral on social media Friday after a screenshot surfaced which showed his IG account engaging a photograph of a “young woman sporting a bikini at the beach” uploaded to the popular media-sharing platform.
The like was quickly removed from the image by a moderator and the politician’s profile released a statement.
“An inappropriate action took place on this account today. This was done by one of our account managers,” the message read.
“We have taken steps to ensure that this does not recur.”
However, Jamaicans assured Holness than the mishap was “not that serious” while citing that the action wasn’t inappropriate.
“Mr Prime Minister, relax!!! You only human and the gal body tun up!!,” one user expressed.
“So Andrew weh yaa issue statement fa? Di gyal look good and you like di pic, yuh think we waa no fish a run di country…. yuh shudda all comment to!,” another added.
“So what’s wrong with liking a picture. The scenery is amazing,” a user wrote.
