Why Is No One Blaming Tristan Thompson?
T here is probably nobody who still does not know the latest drama in the Kardashian family. Well, unless you live under a rock. The family is once again taken up by shock and soaked in drama because Khloe Kardashian has been cheated on by ex boyfriend and baby daddy Tristan Thompson. But what’s worse is that this time Kylie Jenner’s bff Jordyn Woods is his rumored new girl. Of course, Tristan cheating is no big shock. He did it when Khloe was only a few days away from giving birth to his daughter True. But did the family expect that someone as close as Jordyn Woods would betray them? Probably not.
Jordyn Woods shared her side of the story on Red Table Talk with Jada Pinkett Smith. It’s there where she claimed that there was no extra marital affair between the two, rather just a passion-less kiss on one drunken night. This led to Khloe Kardashian publicly declaring Jordyn Woods a liar and homewrecker. After a change of heart, Khloe Kardashian took back her statement and that Tristan Thompson was the real reason for the whole breakdown of her family.
And, we can agree. Fans on Twitter seem to be divided however.
Why is Everybody Punishing Jordyn Woods Instead of Tristan Thompson?
It looks like too much of the blame is falling on Jordyn Woods. Everywhere you see, people are judging her in whatever way they can. While some are attacking her for betraying her best friend Kylie Jenner and her family, others are labeling her as a homewrecker who tore apart Khloe Kardashian’s family. But some are even slut-shaming her for sleeping with somebody else’s boyfriend while drunk. Woods has been the subject of news everywhere, and not in a very positive light. Although some people are sticking up for the teenager, others are simply refusing to consider her side of the story.
However, Jordyn is not the only one suffering here. Apart from knowing that her family has been torn apart, Khloe Kardashian has a lot more to deal with. And that’s all the hate and judgments coming her way for putting up with Tristan in the first place. People are claiming that she should have always known that Tristan is a cheating liar. And should have stopped giving him chances, and simply dumped him. But nobody is recognizing the pain and hurt that Khloe or every woman goes through when they let everything go just to have a settled family, even though it may not work out in the end.
Probably the person deserving the most blame here is Tristan Thompson. And surprisingly, his share of judgment is divided between Jordyn Woods and Khloe Kardashian. Maybe one reason he is not getting all the hate is because as a society, we have accepted patriarchal norms and values. Men can cheat, lie and betray as much as they want and we’ll keep normalizing the situation. Nobody will judge them, but the woman who still puts up with him or the woman he hooks up with will end up like Koko and Jordyn.
Isn’t it a bit unfair to Khloe and Jordyn knowing that if it wasn’t for Tristan and his urge to cheat, nothing would have happened?
