Jackson returned to social media on Thursday, July 6, and noticeably removed all images of his girlfriend, Keke Palmer, in the process. Leodis, the couple’s son, continues to have photos on his feed, but there are no longer any of the “Nope stars” after the former fitness instructor faced backlash for his critical remarks about one of her recent outfits.
On Wednesday, July 5, Jackson posted a tweet with a video of the True Jackson VP alum being serenaded by Usher while wearing a skimpy black dress.
He wrote, “It’s the outfit.. you’re a mom.” Following his remark, fans criticized him for holding out-of-date opinions.
If you’re going to be this insecure, don’t date a bad guy, said one. One person said, “Don’t regulate women’s clothing preferences.”
Another person said, “Boy shut up,” and a fourth said, “I liked it better when we didn’t know who you were.”
The single father responded by maintaining his position in Palmer’s ensemble.
He wrote, “We live in a generation where a man of the family doesn’t want the wife and mother to showcase booty cheeks to please others and he gets told how much of a hater he is.
“My family and I are represented by this. I have morals and standards that guide my beliefs, he added. I end my argument.
The baby daddy’s tweets about the incident, including the one from yesterday announcing his return to the app, are still visible on his profile.
He tweeted his deactivation along with the words “Y’all thought.”
Palmer has not publicly addressed the controversy, in contrast to Jackson, who has been very vocal about this situation. However, some theorize that her most recent concert post might have been a dig at the internet celebrity.
She captioned a series of pictures showcasing the sheer black body-con dress with, “I wish I had taken more pictures but we were running late,” and added, “We were running late.”
The status of their romantic relationship is unknown.
