Kyle Queiro learned a hard lesson: Do not question Jill Scott’s beauty.
On Friday night, the NFL linebacker posted a series of tweets in which he suggested the Grammy-winning artist was no longer sexually attractive.
“People are attracted to JILL SCOTT!?” Queiro he wrote in a since-deleted post. “And by no means is she ugly, but ya’ll really sexually aroused by her?”
After receiving a brutal dose of backlash the former Dallas Cowboys player made an about face and issued Jill an apology.
On July 11 Quiero said that he didn’t mean to come off like he was fat shaming and admitted his tweet was “poorly worded and conveyed” and the following day (July 12) came back with an extensive apology.
“First and foremost, I would like to apologize to Miss Jill Scott,” he tweeted. “The topic of your beauty should not have been shared over social media for public discourse.. There’s truly no excuses or explanations to be made. My comments were distasteful and unbecoming of a Black man to speak negatively of a Black woman under any circumstance.”
The 25-year-old also apologized to those other than Scott who were offended by his tweets.
“Second, I would like to apologize to all of those who were offended by my post. I’m aware of the layers of hurt I peeled back with my words. I had no intention to make people feel less than, but that’s simply not good enough. Intention doesn’t equate to impact. I am aware of how much more important one’s impact is than their intention. Knowing this, I still offended a large number of people and for that I am deeply sorry.”

Queiro’s apology came after the “Crown Royal” singer saw she was trending and had no idea. Instead of addressing Queiro, she called for justice for Black women who recently tragically lost their lives.

Some of Jill’s famous friends also chimed in to set Quiero straight.
“Jill Scott is literally one of the sexiest singers of my time. I hate dead brain jocks,” said K. Michelle.
Tory Lanez also took some jabs at Quiero saying, “You can’t trust a nigga that don’t find Jill Scott attractive.”
While Quest Love proclaimed, “Jill Scott is the sexiest human EVER. Sue Me.”
