So our friend ‘Ninja’ the son of the veteran dancehall DJ Ninjaman has made the trending numbers again after several video clips taken by smartphone users earlier in the afternoon. The thing got so out of control that the security guard as the video shows had to intervene while in my estimation got too physical with Ninja as he vented. Other smartphone videographers were busy taking shots and a crowd had gathered at the exit/entrance of the plaza’s car park. The sequence of events that led to the melee is unclear but the word is that Ninja while barefooted was effectively profiled as gay given his aesthetic from his bleached skin and hairstyle. His androgynous appearance has landed him in problems before elsewhere.
His temper is entirely another matter altogether.
Here is one of the videos making the rounds:
Sad though that his notoriety is once again enhanced by this ugly episode, one would expect that after one gets to a certain age that one simply just aim a little lower in terms of ignoring terse or harmful words and let things slide, Ninja is not known however to be one with restraint or patience when he feels that someone has stepped on his toes. He is going to explode whether one likes it or not, this is not limited to just non-LGBT people; even in the community he is known for such outbursts aka ‘judgements’ complete with the dramatics.
He was also supposedly labelled I had gathered inside the plaza as a scammer by members of the public, a stereotype that has come to be stuck on some persons by just how they look in terms of tattoos, and dresscode. Ninja is not going take that kind of bashing that kindly but the thing eventually cooled after some time but things like this tend to have an indirect effect in the credibility or image department pursuant to LGBT rights as those who effect the wall of dismissals on ‘gay rights’ when things as this one occur feel justified in their hardened positions.
Fortunately the mob or crowd at the entrance did not attack him as one would expected in times passed, one can remember another mobbing case outside of this ninja matter where cops had to rescue a gay man on Mountain View Avenue as a crowd descended on a house at the time to exact their version of how gays should be dealt with, here is that clip:
It was only in 2016 Ninja found himself in some challenges as well during a People’s National Party, PNP election campaign motorcade which drew some negative reactions from the public and even his own father for want of a better term ‘disassociated’ himself from his son while claiming he (father) did not have any issue with gays. Ninja senior said at the time that he did not curse his son but he (the son) cursed himself. He claimed that his son cannot call him and then he claimed his son he doesn’t know. Sad that for popularity Ninjaman decided to openly pretend he was not interested in his own and it is not an unusual response by many lesser celebrated persons who disown their own LGBT siblings so as to please onlookers and whisperers who expect gays are to be treated as others.
Family rejection often lead to forced evictions or estrangement if not displacement, one can also feel almost a stranger inside ones own home as other siblings simply do not engaged or are very distant. Others such as a 2004 incident at a prominent high school occurred, where a father incited violence on his own soon by other students; if it were not for the janitorial staff that intervened while sustaining some blows from persons and a chair that was thrown at the boy. The thing did not end up with a worse consequence thankfully and it left the country at the time baffled in some sense. Others agreed with the man’s actions while other persons condemned the action while the sexual orientation of his son was gone. Family bond was scene to be more stronger a reason for tolerance than just who he may be sexually interested in or sound like as it was said at the time the young man was well spoken; a trait that can land males in the target of gay allegations devoid of the gangsta or ‘badman’ traits buffered with bravado.
Here is that video from the prior Ninja episode then.
