Diana King found herself on the wrong side of several Jamaican nationals locally and overseas on Twitter.
The legendary reggae songstress took to her Twitter page on Wednesday to blast Jamaica for what she called tolerant of rape and child abuse but not the LGBT community.
“JAMAICA is TOLERANT of RAPE & SEXUAL ABUSE of CHILDREN even INCESTS but NOT of SEX between CONSENTING #LGBT ADULTs,” King wrote.
“I GOT NO SUPPORT 4 MY RAPE • ONLY REJECTION, SHAMED • AS IF I ASKED 4 IT. I HAD 2 B MY OWN THERAPIST. iWAS a F**ING KID JAMAICA!” she added.

That statement angered a lot of Jamaicans who rejected her statement calling it nonsense.
“@DIANAKINGDOM this is nonsense–rapists and child molesters get beheaded before the cops come get them–nonsense–don’t speak ill of JA,” one person wrote on social media.
“Your free to speak your mind but that statement is not true because majority of Jamaicans will not tolerate rapist,” another fan wrote.
Diana King announced back in 2012 that she is a lesbian in a lengthy message to her fans on her Facebook page.
“My name is DIANA EUGENA KING, known to most as DIANA KING my fans call me KingSinga,” she wrote on her Facebook page. “I AM … WOMAN … MOTHER … AUNT … JAMAICAN … AMERICAN … INTERNATIONAL ARTIST … SINGER … SONGWRITER … BAND LEADER … FRIEND … LOVER … ENTREPRENEUR … GODDESS! among other things AND YES!!!… I AM A LESBIAN … the answer to my most asked INDIRECT question.
I welcome the “WHO CARES” right now LOL.”
