The Real Reason Jordyn Woods Never Clapped Back At Khloe Kardashian

By now, we’re all tired of hearing about the Jordyn Woods/Tristan Thompson scandal. But, knowing the Kardashians, they will ride this storyline until the wheels fall off. In case you somehow forgot, Kardashian stans erupted in horror several months back when rumors got out that Woods and Thompson (the then-boyfriend and baby daddy to Khloe Kardashian) were making out at a party. But that was just the tip of the iceberg.

IG hate

Immediately following the scandal, KarJenner fans began to spew their hatred towards Woods, who was the long-time bestie to Kylie Jenner and was previously thought of a “little sister” to the other KarJenner siblings. Woods began to receive messages about being a homewrecker and a snake. She and her family even received death threats over this alleged incident.

Woods admits that the negativity was so bad that looking at the hateful things people were saying about her felt like a disease. “It becomes addictive to look on the Internet, to look at your name. When I would look at my name and see all of the things that people were saying, it became like a tumor. It became cancerous to me,” Woods confessed in a recent interview with Cosmopolitan UK.

Khloe Kardashian’s Twitter rant

Feeling the need to defend herself, Woods went on Red Table Talk to tell her side of the story. She expressed remorse for her actions and took accountability for them. Unfortunately, that wasn’t enough for Khloe Kardashian, who took the opportunity to act like a scorned teenager. “Why are you lying Jordyn Woods? If you’re going to try and save yourself by going public, INSTEAD OF CALLING ME PRIVATELY TO APOLOGIZE FIRST, at least be HONEST about your story. BTW, You ARE the reason my family broke up!” the Revenge Body host tweeted out for the world to see.

Why didn’t Woods clap back

But despite Khloe Kardashian throwing major shade, Woods never responded, even though she had ample opportunity to clap back at the 35-year-old. But just why is that the case? Fans and critics alike had many theories about why Woods chose to take the high road and not react to Kardashian’s outburst. KarJenner stans assumed that it was because she knew she was guilty and nothing she could say would absolve her of her guilt.

Other fans of Keeping Up With The Kardashians felt that Woods behaved this way out of respect for her former bestie, Kylie Jenner, not wanting to put her in the middle of things. Contrastingly, critics of the KarJenner clan believed that Woods felt no need to clap back at Kardashian as Twitter did it for her, dragging the 35-year-old so much that she was forced to rescind her statements.

Woods doesn’t react out of emotion

But, it turns out that none of those theories are true. In fact, the real reason why Woods never clapped back at Kardashian is because that kind of behavior just isn’t in her nature.

“I don’t believe in clapping back or reacting out of emotion. I could have handled this a million different ways, but I just went with what felt the most natural to me. Would I ever have wanted this to happen? Never. But shit happens. And in the end, I never want to see anyone hurt; I would hate to be the reason for anyone’s pain. We all have to go to sleep with ourselves at night,” the SECNDNTURE owner shared.

Booked and busy

It’s great to see that Jordyn Woods continues to take the high road in this unfortunate situation. Despite the massive amounts of backlash she has received in the past few months, she is receiving a load of success and positive attention as well. We wish her the best of luck in her future endeavors.
