What do you mean by "wrong"? It's grammatically correct. It just
doesn't mean what you want it to mean.

Here's a context in which that sentence makes sense.
To group A: {SumoH 'ej Suwoch} "Y'all are ugly. Y'all are tall."
To group B: {Su'IH 'ej Suwoch je} "Y'all are beautiful. Y'all are tall
too." That is, "Y'all (in addition to people in group A) are tall".
