Dancehall artiste Starface is upset that there are factions within the entertainment industry who have objected to the use of a self-described "professional dwarf entertainer" in a sex scene in her video  for the single, 'Ready', the Tuff remix.  

"When the video leak on IG, mi see all kinds of people, even people that me and dem cool with in the industry, ah lick out and ah say mi go loo because mi have a dwarf ah play my lover inna one scene in the video. Dem a say mi a star so that shouldn't happen, but mi no see what's the big deal? I am an actress playing a role," Starface said.


Some of the comments included : "A weh she a duh wid dwarf? A wah dizz Mon.... Weh u neva  find a tall man n sen dat weh?A weh she a do?"


"Starface mi lose offa yu, how yu fi have a dwarf ah 'work' the goodie goodie? Mi upset with your team, they should make some other girl act the part, no midget can't 'work' my superstar, it devalues the brand STARFACE 


Other comments were more on the humourous side. 

"The short boy can’t do nothing him is just a drinks thief," one user commented.

Another said: "Short man a the king ?man them man deh hotta than the tall man all doh him make tall man look waste still lol ???Short man a THE DON."


The video was shot and directed by Yaadboii Films 


"Little people ah people too, why dem a try discriminate and stop the man food, mi no believe inna no form of discrimination based pon people race, height, or sexual orientation. Little people are the butt of jokes, and they are often the objects of ridicule. Society mocks them because we exist in a culture that doesn't take short-statured people seriously," she added. 




In the entertainment business, there are more short-statured men than women and these men often are striving for the social acceptance and status that being short-statured might exclude them from.
