Earlier this week, the Gleaner took it upon itself to erroneously report that popular entertainment personality Jodi 'Jinx' Stewart Henriques appeared pregnant in her carnival costume.
The Gleaner's report elicited a firestorm of comments on the matter with many taking to social media to have their say.
Jodi has now decided to respond. Below is what she has to say on the matter.
"It's very unfortunate that the media puts so much pressure on women to look a certain way at all times. It's also disappointing that a national newspaper would publish something so personal without seeking a comment from those likely to be affected. Should Sean and I wish to expand our family, we will decide how, when and with whom we share that information.
"Until then my body size, shape and dimensions are not for public comment."
