Keke Palmer’s boyfriend unleashes sexist tirade over outfit

Darius Jackson faced criticism Wednesday for shaming his girlfriend Keke Palmer over her recent outfit choices.

The “Nope” actor had worn a see-through dress by Givenchy wearing a black bodysuit during an Usher concert in Las Vegas, as seen in footage of the event. In the video, Palmer dances with the singer while performing his 2010 hit “There Goes My Baby.”

Jackson – a fitness trainer who gave birth to a son, Leodis “Leo” Andrelltonwith Palmer in February – took to Twitter to express his disapproval of the ensemble.

“It’s the outfit, but you’re a mother.” he wrote.

After fans defended Palmer, Jackson continued his sexist tirade and doubled it with an even more inflammatory tweet.

“We live in a generation where a man of the family does not want his children’s wife and mother to bare their butts to please others and is told how much he hates it,” wrote Jackson. “This is my family and my representation. I have standards and morals for what I believe in. I am letting my case rest.”

Once again, Jackson’s comments sparked strong reactions.

“Love is not embarrassing, love preserves,” one Twitter user wrote. “If Keke Palmer’s husband had an issue with what she was wearing to an event, he should have addressed it privately, but he chose to embarrass her publicly.”

Added other: “She won’t be yours much longer, you continue to act like a jealous punk and publicly shame her. You have to be a part of each other’s lives because you have a child now. That doesn’t mean you have to be in a romantic relationship.”

As of Thursday morning, Jackson’s Twitter account appeared to be disabled.

When Palmer’s rep was contacted by HuffPost, he declined to comment.

Though the actress hasn’t publicly commented on Jackson’s comments, she doesn’t seem to regret the dress either. I share various photos of it later on Wednesday on Instagram.

“I wish I had taken more photos,” she wrote in a caption, “but we were late!”
