Social media is not having it and they are making Miss Jamaica World (MJW) contestant know that they are not in favour of her being a finalist in the contest. Shaneke Williams, the woman who was freed of a charge of aiding and abetting rape and sexual touching in the case of a 15-year-old girl has been selected as a finalist in the Miss Jamaica World beauty pageant and many are voicing their opinion that this is wrong.
"Suppose she wins and this gets out to the international media?" seems to be the main concern.
"Shaneke Williams was arrested for aiding and abetting RAPE & sexual touching of a minor yet she's a contender in MJW? RUBBISH", said one user, "But girl, imagine if she win and that come across international media? It will be a scandal," said another in response.
However, since Williams was named among this year's MJW contestants, many Twitter users have questioned the move by Spartan Health Club, which is the franchise staging the pageant, to allow her to compete.
One user noted that the charges were dropped.
"Cannot believe she made it through," another said.
The aiding and abetting rape and sexual touching case was dismissed after the complainant, who is now 19 years old, indicated that she did not wish to proceed with the matter.The incident was alleged to have occurred in November 2013.
The Facebook page for the pageant officially announced that Williams is among the 16 beauties selected on Saturday to embark on the journey to Miss Jamaica World 2017.
The 16 finalists selected on Saturday are: Shaneke Williams, Kadejah Anderson, Brianne St.Juste, Jaavonne Taylor, Latoya Tingle, Solange Sinclair, Amaya Lewis, Megan McNaughton, Rochelle Duncan, Sukanya Wilmot, Alana Pennant, Alyssa Booth, Sasha Henry, Leah Hollingsworth, Jeneque Pinnock and Melissa Douglas.
