On Monday morning, a cease and desist order was issued to Trinidadian comedienne Rachel Price by the president of the Republic of Trinidad & Tobago, Anthony Carmona. The order was issued to prevent price from making further comments on the president’s wife choice of clothing.

On the 28th of September, Price posted this photo of Carmona’s wife on Facebook questioning her outfit. In the photo, Mrs Carmona was dressed in an all black outfit that exposed a section of her torso. president wife

Mrs Carmona apparently attended an event called “Fashion for Development” which celebrates people who used fashion to raised awareness for social issues. The event was held in the margins of the United Nations General Assembly last month in New York and was attended by over forty first ladies, including the UN Secretary-General’s wife.

The president’s lawyers have indicated that further action will be taken against Price if she continues to criticize his wife’s clothing “on social media and elsewhere.”
