Rihanna can speak c**t and she can speak it fluently too,
Rihanna wouldn’t be offended when she hears I say she talks c**t
because according to her that’s a word we bajans use so much its not sen as offensive.
I am not claiming that Bajans are saints when it comes to language and are not liable to “lather someone in cuss” if they feel the occasion demands it with prolific use of “c” “f” and “r” words. What I am saying is to state the curse words and especially the “c” word is not considered to be offensive here is a clear and utter prevarication.
This can be dangerously misleading to persons who have never visited Barbados yet and hear Rihanna’s statement and when they land at the airport and immigration asks if anything to declare?
They proclaim “yes, its great to come to Barbados and spend time with u c**ts”. To their dismay they will find out that not only is the word one of the most offensive you can use here but is also against the laws to use such language in public.
Next thing you get charge for using abusive language and you go before the judge and say in your American accent “your honour, what the c**t is happening here” next thing you also getting charge for contempt of court.
So for the record while it is used often in Barbados the “C” word is just as offensive here as in other parts of the world and can in fact land you in jail.
And despite what Rihanna says its not commonly used in everyday decent conversations, thats why when Rihanna performed at the “Loud” concert in Barbados earlier this year she did not hit the stage and hail Bajans by shouting “Hail C**ts!”
I am wondering if this international exposure of Barbados cursing practices is part of the recently signed off BTA Contract clause of Ri Ri promoting the island? Hmm ….. thats something u need to think about.
Anyways I will stop now before Rihanna gets wind of this and blinds me in cuss and calls me a C**t but I get that all the time anyway.
