The “Highest Level” deejay has shown his unwavering support for son, Likkle Vybz, despite significant backlash from fans over his appearance in a recent photo he posted to Instagram.
The teenager, who is one half the brother duo PG-13, was heavily criticized on online last week after fans sighted him sporting a obviously lighter skin tone on the photo sharing platform.
“A Adidja she say,” Vybz Kartel’s son captioned the controversial photo, which drew the support of his father, who liked and commented on the photo saying “Adidja she say @likklevybzpg13.”
Some fans were not pleased with the teen’s actions as they quickly took to his page to express their disappointment.
“Like father like son, so Kartel bleach and now his son bleaching even before him done high school? Disgraceful mi cyan support this,” one user wrote.
“You soon meet up with you daddy bro up a GP,” another user wrote to which teen responded, “Sym and lift up off a me page.”
Vybz Kartel’s respond did little to discourage the backlash as one fan decided to criticize the “Worl Boss” himself.
“So everyday Kartel on IG a cuss black people and then turn around and support minor kids bleaching their skin,” the user said.
However, hardcore fans of the incarcerated deejay did not remain silent as they also came to the defense of the Vybz Kartel.
“A pure Gaza people over here so the rest a unnu go somewhere else and come off the youth page Gaza forever,” one fan charged.
