Ce’Cile posted a photo of Dowdie in her hospital bed and said in the caption, “It seems there is some personal satisfaction in being evil, in being distasteful, in being disrespectful on social media as well as in everyday life.” Ce’Cile also expressed her outrage that the attack was allegedly perpetrated by “other women.” While Renee 6:30 posted the same photo and wrote that she was praying for Dowdie’s speedy recovery adding, “God never sleeps.” Jamaican comedian Shebada came under criticism in the aftermath of the attack for showing no sympathy for Dowdie as the party she was attending was in breach of Jamaica’s COVID-19 protocols.
In a video circulating on social media, one of Dowdie’s alleged attackers said that she was innocent. The alleged suspect says in the video that she did “nothing wrong” and asked people to stop circulating her photo across the internet.
Dowdie’s Mother Says She Was Told Her Daughter Will Not Pull Through
The Jamaica Star reports that Dowdie was known as the “comedian” of her household. The report mentions that Dowdie was a student at Papine High School. Dowdie’s mother, Venisha Buckley, told the Star: “I come from the hospital and the doctors tell me he won’t make it. There is a one percent chance that I will give my baby to live, just one percent. One percent is just because their eyes are open. My baby cannot breathe on his own. Doctors say they can’t get her out of the machine. They beat my baby and gave him one percent in life. ”
Buckley went on to say that the beating started when a woman asked her daughter what she was looking at, prompting a confrontation. Buckley added that the other party-goers “enjoyed the show” and didn’t help when one of her daughter’s friends began to panic. At the time of writing, no arrests have been made in the case.
