While Christine Brown’s decision to ditch Kody has helped her amass more fans this season, Kody is doing very little to shore up his image.

In a conversation with Gabriel and Garrison Brown, Kody revealed that he’s spending the bulk of his time with Robyn Brown, his fourth and legal wife, because she’s the “obedient” one. He suggested his other wives have opted not to follow his strict guidelines. Because of their differing opinions he has no interest in seeing them. Kody may have been referring to his coronavirus protocols with his statement, but viewers are taking it an entirely different way. 

Fans think Kody sounded misogynistic in the most recent episode of ‘Sister Wives’ 

Kody might have been trying to explain why he feels comfortable at Robyn’s house, but the more he spoke about the issues around coronavirus, the more annoyed fans became. Reddit users connected to discuss his statements. Several users suggested Kody’s take on his family was misogynistic. 

The father of 18 made several proclamations that didn’t sit well with fans, but his statements about his wives not being “obedient” and his take on both Janelle and Christine hit fans particularly hard. Over the years, Christine and Janelle Brown have emerged as fan favorites. Christine has since moved away. Is Janelle next? 

Is Kody and Janelle Brown’s marriage on the rocks? 

The conversation with Gabriel and Garrison didn’t make Kody look good, but fans of the series walked away questioning more than the misogynistic undertones of his statements. Fans are wondering if Janelle Brown is seriously considering ending her marriage to Kody, too.

‘Sister Wives’: Kody Brown Admits That Robyn’s House Feels Like ‘His House’

In past seasons, Kody and Janelle appeared to be the couple that got along the best. Their marriage never seemed particularly romantic. Still, the duo did seem to get along well and shared plenty of common ground. That’s changing now. Their difference of opinion on how to mitigate risk has caused significant strife. As the most recent Sister Wives episode ended, fans were left to wonder if Janelle was over her marriage to Kody, too. The answer isn’t clear just yet, but things may be moving in that direction.
