Log-Off For Us, Darius

Fans of Keke Palmer came out in full-force to defend the actress after her baby-daddy took to social media to express his displeasure in her outfit-choice

There are arguably some individuals that one should refrain from criticizing online, and based on the temperature of social media since last night, one of those people appears to be Keke Palmer.

The situation began after Palmer's boyfriend and father to her son, Darius Jackson, reposted a video on Twitter featuring the actress getting serenaded by Usher and expressed displeasure in seeing her in an outfit that he believed to be unfit for a mother.

"It's the outfit a mom," Jackson tweeted.

He later followed up that tweet with another declaring "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...This is my family & my representation. I have standards & morals to what I believe. I rest my case."

Fans and supporters of Palmer swiftly came to the defense of the Nope star, with tweets varying between criticisms of Jackson's character, issues that spawn from men claiming ownership over their female-partners, and of course, some humorous and rather ruthless jabs at the baby-daddy.

In the time since Jackson's comments and the subsequent backlash, Palmer issued a response to her boyfriend's tweets with a post on Instagram featuring more photos in the outfit.

The caption read "I wish I had taken more pictures but we were running late! 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. I whooped some ass in spades too! Where is that pic of us all together with the King himself??"

Jackson has also deactivated his Twitter account, and both he and Palmer seem to have unfollowed each other on Instagram.

The couple, who have been together since 2021 and welcomed a son in early 2023, have been rather private compared most celebrity-pairings. However, following the negative-response Jackson has recieved and the two seemingly distancing themselves on social media, one could reasonably ask if this relationship is still afloat or if a split is on the horizon.
