Is This the Most Homophobic 'Harlem Shake' Video of All Time?


'Harlem Shake' videos are supposed to be all about fun. But this one is about imprisoning gay people.

The Love March Movement, which describes itself as being "dedicated to being a persistent voice in the Jamaican media for sexual purity," is behind a new 'Harlem Shake' video calling on Jamaica to retain laws criminalizing homosexuality.

Jamaica is considered one of the most homophobic countries on Earth rife with bias crimes against LGBT people, and it's not hard to see why given the content of this YouTube video.

LGBT people in Jamaica are routinely beaten by mobs, and are afraid to be free in their own country. Sexual acts between men are punishable by up to ten years in jail...

Check out this trailer for a Kickstarter-funded documentary by Micah Fink that I posted about earlier this year that tells the story of two gay people afraid for their lives in the country. It's very powerful:

So back to the 'Harlem Shake' video:


This 'Harlem Shake' video features people dancing with signs about the dangers of gay marriage...

Suggesting that gay rights will curb religious liberties and freedom of speech...

Lossfreedom Religion
And even more heinously, the lie that homosexuality and pedophilia are connected.


It ends with these messages. No wonder LGBT people want to leave the country.

Watch the video, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Looks like all the pedophiles in Jamaica got together and made this video to throw the stench off of themselves.

  2. Or maybe they could just rename the video to The Harlem Stake: Burn The Witch!!

    Or maybe
    The Jamaica Shake: A country that's proud to be ignorant.

  3. Bunch of friggin cowards, big talk and thug behavior yet not one of them will show their face. A special place is reserved for them in Hell.

  4. Glad that you provided so many screen caps, so that I didn't have to contribute to the view count to get the gist as to how awful and hate filled these people are. They have so much else to worry about in Jamaica right now, they should concentrate on rebuilding their country. Best wishes to the LGBT crowd in Jamaica.

  5. Dear Jamaica,

    When the next hurricane comes and destroys your filthy little island, do not ask for aid.

    You can eat your bibles.

    AGREED X 100!!!!!

  7. All Beef Patty, agreed.

  8. I completely agree with you, ALLBEEFPATTY.

  9. Agreed. Jamaica is a dump, so next time they have their hand out, I'll gladly slap it way. To hell with my tax dollars going to this place.

  10. Dumb ass 'what's the word'... ah yes, never mind.

  11. Dear Jamaica: What Patty said.

  12. It's a filthy little backward country..who cares..push lawmakers to let it fend for itself from now on..

  13. This just reinforces my decision to never travel to Jamaica nor buy any products from Jamaica...They can rot on their little Fourth-World island for all I care...

  14. They feel so strongly about it... yet most hide their faces, shame.

  15. Reported the video for "hateful/abusive" content. I recommend you all do the same.

  16. The whole Caribbean is just a giant mass of disease disguised as paradise by resorts. I hate when people go down south and claim its so beautiful...step off your resort and see what happens!

  17. I hope this goes viral because I want to see the backlash against Jamaica when it does. That will be good to see, because there hasn't been enough attention on Jamaica's disgustingly inhumane treatment of LGBTQ citizens.

    The only concern needs to be for the gay community in this country and their safety. The rest of the country can burn.

  18. One note about climate change. Here in South Florida, we have got hurricane preparation and revised building codes down to a science. In Jamaica, they are still in the Dark Ages concerning hurricane preparation and building construction. I will have to agree with ALLBEEFPATTY and DISGUSTED AMERICAN. When global warming bears down on Jamaica in the form of stronger hurricanes, Western nations should NOT provide aid until Jamainca halts their reign of terror against gay and bisexual people. Not one dime.

  19. If you've ever been there, you understand it's not a hotbed of education/enlightenment. Plenty hocus-pocus...boog-a-boo and superstition. The hallmarks of ignorance & poverty. Looking for the good in all people, I'm hardpressed to find any there. But, then again when I go home to my sicilian relatives...none there either.

  20. Any homosexual who spends one cent in Jamaica is an idiot. All US aid to this island should be stopped.

  21. Is Jamaica the Afghanistan of Homophobe?

  22. Bring them to the Bible Belt & make them slaves. That'll teach them.

  23. Notice how they can't show their faces?

    Posted by: Chicago | Mar 10, 2013 1:17:57 PM

  24. I wouldn't even fly over that island to take a dump. That'd be redundant.

  25. If they are so righteous why are they hiding their faces? Blood clot.
