‘Death to Gays’ Rapper Given UK Visa

“The Home Secretary was criticised today for granting a visa to a controversial Jamaican reggae singer [Bounty Killer], allowing him to perform in London this weekend. Jacqui Smith was accused by gay rights campaigner Peter Tatchell of “rewarding a maladjusted thug” after the Home Office gave a work permit to dancehall artist Bounty Killer (Rodney Pryce). Tatchell has accused the singer of glorifying the killing of gay people and promoting gang culture. Bounty Killer will play at the Stratford Rex on Saturday.” [TIL, earlier]
