Widow slammed for dancing to “Made You Look” while telling husband’s tragic death

Made You Look video of a widow viral for no good reason

A Florida widow faces strong criticism for dancing in a Made You Look video while describing the details of her husband’s death. The video was originally posted on TikTok but was deleted due to the backlash. It was reposted to Twitter more recently. 

The woman, Jessica Ayers, 39, AKA The Singing Widow, is shown gyrating in the video to Meghan Trainor’s upbeat tune, “Made You Look” while smiling. Meanwhile, captions describing her husband’s horrific death pop up on the screen. 

“Eight years ago, a man shot and killed my husband. I was 3 days postpartum. Eleven months later the man who shot him was convicted of manslaughter,” the captions read. 

“I also told him that if he ever started feeling sorry for himself, to remember my face. It remains one of the proudest moments of my life’” she says, describing the events in the killer’s sentencing. 

Ayer’s husband, Steven Justin Ayers, 33, was killed in 2014 by a stray bullet right after the couple brought their 3-day-old baby from the hospital. 

The shooter. Charles Edward Shisler, 62, claimed the gun discharged by accident while he was picking it up by the trigger. He was arrested and charged with manslaughter, possession of a firearm by a felon, and possession of methamphetamine.

The Made You Look video was met with mixed reactions. Most viewers found it upsetting. 

“People are reacting because it’s discordant in the same way hospital personnel dancing during reported COVID surges was. The behavior seemed misaligned with the message and the incongruence reads as disingenuous/insincere,” one viewer wrote.  

“She’s dancing because she’s telling the story of her revenge for the murder- her brave speech got the killer a life sentence. I’m really not sure what the problem is here,” another commenter stated. 

“So let’s crucify me for it. Wtf? The dance was a trend so I made a TikTok using it to tell my story. Sooo many others do it and people praise them,” Ayers said, defending herself. 

Ayers has since remarried musician Don Ayers. The two perform together at local venues.
