Darius Daulton triggered an internet frenzy on Wednesday (July 5) after he tweeted a response to a revealing outfit Keke Palmer wore to an Usher live performance.
Palmer just lately stepped out carrying a cheeky black bodysuit beneath a black mesh, long-sleeved gown. She paired the look with strappy black heels, wavy hair, and a pink lip.

At some level throughout Usher’s efficiency, Keke joined the singer on stage, and he serenaded her as they danced carefully and hugged. Though most took the second as playful fangirling, it seems Darius Daulton did NOT.
On Twitter, he quote-tweeted a video of the Usher-Keke second, writing, “It’s the outfit tho…you a mom.”
As his tweet picked up traction, Keke Palmer followers started dragging Darius on-line. Within hours, his previous tweets entered the dialog, together with one about being insecure and one other about Alton Sterling’s compliance with officers earlier than his dying.
Darius Daulton Reacts To Backlash Over Keke Palmer’s Revealing Outfit
Nearly 4 hours after his preliminary tweet, Darius Daulton briefly defined his stance. Calling the actress his “wife”–regardless of no engagement or wedding ceremony bulletins–Darius instructed 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 adopted up by telling a Twitter person–who defended his outfit stance–that his rationalization was his “last tweet of the day.”

His rationalization appeared to gasoline the backlash from Keke Palmer supporters. In addition to previous tweets, Twitter customers highlighted Darius Daulton’s equally revealing and risqué posts. One included a mirror selfie of him shirtless with black underwear on.
Meanwhile, one other resurfaced publish featured Darius Daulton praising Keke Palmer as she twerked on-camera. In the clip, he says, “Y’all see this, y’all see this work,” earlier than Keke laughs.
Twitter person @ChinaKeyy wrote:
“So Keke BD was ok when she was dancing in her under garments to Boosie a few months ago? Or different rules cause she was pregnant?”
And whereas Keke supporters have been holding Darius’ toes to the hearth, some have seemingly agreed together with his reactions.
“Y’all saying Keke BD corny cause he don’t want his BM with her cheeks out getting held on her waist & sung to? Flood this b***h again lord,” @stanleyearl tweeted.
“India Arie gets bashed for wanting women to represent themselves better on stage. Keke BD getting bashed for not wanting her a** to be out in front of the masses. This is the modern world,” @JordanK0913 tweeted.
SWIPE BELOW TO SEE SOME OF THE REACTIONS
And Darius wasn’t the one one catching warmth for the cheeky outfit opposition. One Twitter person, @AmandaDannielle, even known as out Daulton’s brother and “Insecure” actor Sarunas Jackson. She quote-tweeted Darius’ rationalization and wrote, “Your brother is a wh*re, mind you.”
“Damn, we not the same man lol. I literally haven’t been having sex and been inside. Why am I catching strays,” Sarunas Jackson replied.
Keke Palmer And Usher Seemingly React To Darius Daulton’s Comments
Just a few hours after Darius’ explainer tweet, Keke Palmer shared a re-cap of her night time on Instagram. As anticipated–given her reactions on the live performance–Palmer praised “King” Usher’s efficiency in her caption.
She shared a couple of pictures of the night time in a multi-slide publish. The first picture reveals her barely bent over with pronounced cleavage and a kissy face.
“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,” Keke Palmer wrote. “I was truly inspired as a performer. I whooped some a*s in spades too! Where is that pic of us all together with the King himself?? @noraradd”
Meanwhile, Usher cracked a jokey joke on the brand new social app Threads amid Daulton’s on-line lashing.
“Am I trending yet,” the singer requested.
Instagram publish apart, Keke Palmer has circuitously addressed Darius Daulton or his opposing commentary on any of her social platforms. However, on July 4, she took to Twitter to specific her love for her man.
“Not tryna be the person but…I love my man, (PERIODT!)”
Not tryna be the individual however… I really like my man.(PERIODT!) 😭
