A month ago I posted about the agreement Stop Murder Music thought it had made with three major reggae recording artists to stop making music about killing gays. Well, Beenie Man is already denying that he made any such agreement. From the Jamaica Observer:

He denied signing any such deal, which Outrage last month announced as the Reggae Compassionate Act, but at the same time said that violence against gays was wrong. "We don't need it," he told reporters shortly after closing Red Stripe Reggae Sumfest's Dancehall Night at approximately 7:15 Friday morning. "We don't need to kill dem. We just need fi tell the people dem the right ting because I not supporting a gay lifestyle because it's not wholesome to me."

Well, there you go.

Which one though? You never tell us which artist is backtracking...
