By BBN Staff: Speaker of the House Michael Peyrefitte came under criticism last night after an inflammatory status aimed at the LGBT community was posted to his Facebook page, however, he claims his account was hacked.
Orosco, of course, was successful in his case against the government of Belize in regards to the decriminalization of same sex relations between consenting adults.
Last night, however, after first reading the post Orosco had said: “Boom Bye Bye is not a damn song to relax to its a song to amplify violence. I demand a public apology from the Speaker of the House for his irresponsible language against our community. Free speech is only free if it can be proven it does not cause harm. If the Office of the PM and Cabinet is not prepared to defend its LGBT citizens, its SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE, has no right to amplify hate and violence in this already difficult environment and reduce his title to a trash heap.”
