Keke Palmer’s boyfriend, Darius Jackson, is facing a lot of backlash after publicly commenting on an outfit the actress recently wore.

The incident took place when she attended Usher’s Las Vegas residency show wearing a see-through mesh dress. In a viral video, you can see Palmer having the time of her life while getting serenaded by the superstar. However, Jackson wasn’t feeling it and took to social media to criticize the 29-year-old’s attire. “It’s the outfit tho.. you a mom,” he wrote on Twitter yesterday (July 5).

This comment sparked outrage among fans who came to Palmer’s defense. In a later tweet, Jackson double downed on what he said by stating that he has certain standards and morals when it comes to how his family is represented. “We live in a generation where a man of the family doesn’t want the wife and mother to his kids to showcase booty cheeks to please others and he gets told how much of a hater he is,” he shared. “This is my family and my representation. I have standards and morals to what I believe. I rest my case.”

Palmer has yet to make any comments regarding the situation but does seem unbothered in latest Instagram post. “I wish I had taken more pictures, but we were running late!” the NOPE star captioned a slideshow of her in the outfit. “I am telling y’all right now, if you haven’t seen Usher, YOU MUST GO!! HE WAS SO FABULOUS!! Giving theater, Atlanta downnn, tips and tricks and just absolutely iconic. I was truly inspired as a performer.”
