Last weekend, the “Equal Rights” singer posted a smoking hot photo of herself on her Instagram page and captioned it, “Mi nuh dress inna tablecloth like Miss Lou #RipMissLou.” Her Jamaican fans think that she was disrespecting the late Jamaican icon who is celebrated as the mother of Jamaican culture. “Ishawna u a my artist and mi rate u but u should think before u make that caption abt miss lou,” one fan wrote in the comments, while another fan added, “See what happen is that we lost our way as a people we have no respect for the true patriots and people who paved the way for us. Ishawna recently got some backlash from dancehall fans for her raunchy single “Equal Rights.”

A post shared by ISHAWNA (@mslegendary) on Jul 8, 2017 at 6:05pm PDT This is by no means an attack on the artist but she really went way over the line Miss Lou was one of the persons who fought for our culture and wearing the “bandanna” it symbolizes a bit of our culture and for her to refer to it in a diragietory (derogatory) term as “table cloth” shows no respect and frankly straight up ignorance to the legacy of a real Jamaican icon.”
A rep for Ishawna told DHH that she meant no disrespect to Miss Lou and was merely expressing herself regarding her outfit. “She meant no disrespect people are just reaching with this one,” her rep said. Ishawna finds herself again at the center of some fresh controversies that have nothing to do with her music.
