DFC Promoter, Val Cuffy, is calling on all Dominicans to be more considerate in the reactions to the judges’ decisions, arising from competitions during the Carnival season.
Cuffy says all judges in every Carnival competition are qualified for judging, and stated that he is not pleased with the reaction of the public, to the decisions made by the judges in the carnival princess pageant, which was held at the Harlem Plaza on 24th January 2016. Carnival Princess Rayne Benjamin, was negatively criticised on social media. Cuffy requests that persons refrain from posting abusive comments. He says “The judging of the shows in Dominica is left to those charged to do this, and it is regrettable that sometimes we take it so personal”.
