Massy Stores has confirmed that it has pulled all Ramsaran products off its shelves as a result of a post by the daughter of the comapny’s owner.

Massy said in a statement today: “Massy Stores Trinidad operates as a responsible retailer and we make every effort to align ourselves with partners who hold similar values. We have listened to our customers and have taken a decision to remove Ramsaran products from our shelves at this time and temporarily suspend ordering of this product.”

The post, which referred to PNM supporters as “cockroaches” among other things, has been receiving widespread criticism online.

Naila Ramsaran issued a statement of apology Wednesday morning but the apology has also bee receiving criticism.

An online petition calling for the boycott of Ramsaran products has already received over 10,000 signatures.
