Darius Daulton Faces Backlash After Critiquing Keke Palmer’s Cheeky Outfit

Written by on July 6, 2023

Darius Daulton caused an online frenzy on Wednesday (July 5) after he tweeted a reaction to a revealing outfit Keke Palmer wore to an Usher concert.

Palmer recently stepped out wearing a cheeky black bodysuit underneath a black mesh, long-sleeved dress. She paired the look with strappy black heels, wavy hair, and a red lip.

At some point during Usher’s performance, Keke joined the singer on stage, and he serenaded her as they danced closely and hugged. Though most took the moment as playful fangirling, it appears Darius Daulton did NOT.

On Twitter, he quote-tweeted a video of the Usher-Keke moment, writing, “It’s the outfit tho…you a mom.” As his tweet picked up traction, Keke Palmer fans began dragging Darius online.

Nearly four hours after his initial tweet, Darius Daulton briefly explained his stance. Calling the actress his “wife”–despite no engagement or wedding announcements–Darius suggested Keke’s outfit represents him.

“We live in a generation where a man of the family doesn’t want the wife & mother to 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.”

Daulton followed up by telling a Twitter user–who defended his outfit stance–that his explanation was his “last tweet of the day.”
