  1. $750,000 fine for fraud? He should pay way more than that, forgive my racist ass, but I hate Chinese, they do not value any form of life, they mix plastic with rice, they make cancer causing pajamas for kids, they give us flour with weevil, give us dogs to eat, despite it not being apart of our culture. God knows what the hell they put in this so called rum of theirs

  2. Dem fi keep dem fake shit in China. Wi hab wi world class recognized brands and dem want to come fck up di ppl dem business weh dem build fi how long and get rich off it to. Gtfoh, don’t fck with our international brands mofo. Jamaicans nuh deal wid quantity like unno, wi deal wid quality. You get off fckng easy, your ass should have gotten the cat o’ nine wid di fine.
