Keke Palmer’s boyfriend Darius Jackson thought it was a good idea to criticize and try to shame her for what she was wearing, but the internet — and Keke herself — quickly put him in his place.

Yesterday a truly adorable clip began making its way through social media of Usher serenading Palmer during a concert.

Everyone loved the video, well, except one person, Jackson, the father of her child. In a since-deleted message he wrote. “It’s the outfit tho.. you a mom,” he wrote alluding to the actress’ see-through dress, which was fierce, by the way.

The response from fans was immediate and ferocious, calling out Jackson for being insecure and chauvinistic.

Rather than backtracking, Jackson doubled down. Writing in a now-deleted tweet. “We live in a generation where a man of the family doesn’t want the wife & mother of his kids to 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.”

Palmer herself finally spoke out today and handled it with absolute class. Palmer posted a series of photos of her from the night of the event, with the caption. “I wish I had taken more pictures but we were running late!” No regrets and no mention of her partner’s comment. Bow down because this is how a queen does it.

As of this writing, Jackson has left Twitter and Instagram.
