Jill Scott recently had her beauty questioned by NFL linebacker Kyle Queiro after he asked fans in a series of since-deleted tweets how they felt “sexually aroused by her.” So other artists shot back their answers.
“You can’t trust a n—a that don’t find Jill Scott attractive,” Tory Lanez wrote on Twitter. He notoriously commented on The Shade Room‘s Instagram post about Queiro’s follow-up apology for his remarks about the neo-soul legend’s physical appearance. “I would def get into a long lasting entanglement with Jill , cuz was tripping,” The New Toronto 3 rapper wrote, referencing how Jada Pinkett Smith described her past relationship with singer August Alsina during her Red Table Talk episode with husband Will Smith.
Rapper Miles Brock commented on the same IG post, writing, “Jill Scott is one of the most GORGEOUS women in the industry period… they can’t see that FACE,” while K. Michelle referred to her as “literally one of the sexiest singers of my time” on Twitter. The Roots’ musician Questlove echoed the R&B singer’s sentiments by declaring in a since-deleted tweet, “Jill Scott is the sexiest human EVER. Sue Me.”
The “A Long Walk” hitmaker took one line from the 25-year-old athlete’s apology letter — “I will strive to do better and I will utilize what platform I have to promote positivity and empowerment within our community, particularly for Black women” — and turned it into a moment to honor Breonna Taylor, Oluwatoyin Salua and Sandra Bland. “Loving ourselves and each other is respectful and uplifting; supportive. EYES ON THE PRIZE, LOVE VILLAGE, EYES ON THE PRIZE,” she tweeted along with the Black women’s pictures.
Russell Simmons, North Carolina MC Tigo B and Love & Hip-Hop: Hollywood alum Sincere Show commented on The Shade Room‘s Instagram post specifically about her response to Queiro with heart emojis and thoughts about how her “level of unbothered made me want her more,” according to Sincere Show.
