Seattle Dragons LB Kyle Queiro In Hot Water After Jill Scott Comment

Seattle Dragons LB Kyle Queiro got into a bit of hot water over the weekend on Twitter. He made comments about “Golden” singer Jill Scotts attractiveness and the twitter storm began.

 Queiro wrote in since-deleted tweets

“People are attracted to JILL SCOTT!? And by no means is she ugly, but ya’ll really sexually aroused by her?”

Scott got wind of the comments and turned a negative into a positive by advocating for Black women who have recently died.

“Wait…I’m was trending again???”

“Ok then-JUSTICE for Breonna Taylor!!! Justice for Oluwatoyin Salau!!!! Justice for Sandra Bland!!!!!” Scott wrote. “Loving ourselves and each other is respectful and uplifting; supportive. EYES ON THE PRIZE, LOVE VILLAGE, EYES ON THE PRIZE.”

Queiro later admitted that his message was

“poorly worded and conveyed”

He then shared a lengthy apology and implied that he did not intend to make anyone feel like their appearance was not good enough.

“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 was selected by the Seattle Dragons during the Phase 5 portion of the 2020 XFL Draft. He finished the season with 11 tackles and one interception. He suffered a season-ending injury during the final game before the league shut down.

He was runner-up for player of the week in week two of the XFL season after securing the game-clinching INT in the Dragons only win.
