'Kartel fans' threaten Lisa Hanna; cops launch probe

Social media users have been hurling threats at Hanna following comments she made on Nationwide Radio calling for authorities to place a ban on some of Vybz Kartel's music because of its negative lyrics. The politician's social media pages have also been flooded with derogatory remarks against her.

Assistant Police Commisioner Devon Watkis said police are not taking the threats lightly.

"Threats against any citizen is not something we take lightly and it is information I will be passing on to the team at CTOC to look into," Watkis told Loop News.

Among the comments posted by 'Kartel fans' on Hanna's Instagram page are:
