Should Keke Palmer Stay With Boyfriend Darius Jackson After Public Shaming?
Keke Palmer and her boyfriend, Darius Jackson, who is also the father of her child, have found themselves amid public controversy. After a video surfaced of Palmer enjoying Usher’s performance in Las Vegas, Jackson publicly criticized her outfit, sparking a debate about relationships and public shaming. As the couple navigates this turmoil, many question whether Palmer should continue her relationship with Jackson.
Keke Gets Serenaded By Usher
Keke Palmer’s presence at Usher’s Las Vegas Residency became a topic of discussion on social media when footage captured her being serenaded by the R&B legend. Palmer appeared joyful and engaged as she sang along, wearing a stunning mesh black dress.
However, her boyfriend and the father of their child, Darius Jackson, publicly commented on the video, expressing his disapproval on Twitter by remarking, “It’s the outfit tho.. you a mom.”
Jackson’s comment triggered a backlash, with many criticizing him for publicly shaming Palmer. He defended his statement in a follow-up tweet, expressing:
“We live in a generation where a man of the family doesn’t want the wife & mother to his kids showcase booty cheeks to please others & he gets told how much of a hater he is. This is my family & my representation. I have standards & morals to what I believe. I rest my case.”
Keke Palmer’s Instagram Post + Fans React
Amidst the discourse, Palmer has not responded publicly to Jackson’s remarks. Instead, she shared photos from the night at the Usher concert on her Instagram, and wrote:
“I wish I had taken more pictures but we were running late! I am telling ya’ll 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. I whooped some ass in spades too! Where is that pic of us all together with the King himself?? @noraradd.”
The incident drew significant attention on social media, with various users sharing their opinions. Some criticized Jackson, likening him to his brother and implying a negative characterization of their family.
One user tweeted about Darius Jackson saying, “So, he’s a b*tch like his brother. A family of bitches. Got it.” Insecure actor Sarunas J. Jackson responded to one user, expressing, “Now this is crazy. I’m confused lol we ain’t never met.. what did I ACTUALLY do lol and please don’t repeat the lies ya’ll love to say.”
Another social media user expressed, “Keke Palmer man being a hater out loud. This why you don’t publicly claim men especially ones with less money than you.”
In response to the backlash, Darius Jackson has deactivated his Twitter account, presumably to avoid further scrutiny and negative comments. The public nature of the incident and its subsequent fallout highlights the challenges individuals face in maintaining personal relationships in the age of social media.
In February 2023, Keke Palmer welcomed her baby boy into the world alongside her boyfriend, Darius Jackson. The pregnancy announcement was made during Palmer’s appearance on SNL, and the couple has since embarked on the journey of parenthood together.
Keke Palmer has also launched her podcast, Baby, This Is Keke Palmer, available for streaming on platforms like Amazon Music and Apple Music.
