Woods may have been Kylie Jenner’s best friend, but Tristan Thompson was Khloé Kardashian’s boyfriend. Not to mention, Thompson and Khloé Kardashian have a daughter together. With that being said, all eyes were on Khloé Kardashian as the scandal panned out. 

It became obvious that a decent amount of the content from season 16 of Keeping Up With the Kardashians would be focused on the infamous scandal. Shortly after news of the scandal leaked, Woods appeared on Jada Pinkett Smith’s Red Table Talk. Khloé Kardashian was not having any of it. The famous reality television star tweeted: “Why are you lying @jordynwoods ?? 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!”

In Woods’ discussion with Smith, she remained adamant that she was not the reason  Khloé Kardashian’s relationship and family split up. 

What did fans and viewers of ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ have to say about the Tristan Thompson and Jordyn Woods’ scandal? 

Like any situation that involves the cast from Keeping Up With the Kardashians, the fans and viewers had a lot to say. A recent Reddit thread captured some of the varying perspectives and opinions of fans on the surprising scandal. 

As one would probably expect, many fans and viewers thought Woods was absolutely in the wrong. One fan commented, “Not a fan of Jordan. Shameless, climbing, dingleberry eating, kardashian wannabe. No depth, no loyalty. Runs and cries to the Smiths to fix her f ups. Backstabber.” There were some people in the discussion who were eager to agree.  Another viewer explained, “What she did was wrong and nothing can excuse her behavior so I feel you. It was terrible.”

The comments went on and on, but it became clear that not all of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians fans were on the same page when it came to this topic. 

Why do some people still feel ‘sorry’ for Jordyn Woods months after the Tristan Thompson scandal?

Some people may be surprised to learn that a lot of fans and viewers are actually feeling quite sorry for Woods. One viewer pointed out how Woods and Kylie Jenner’s friendship always seemed off onscreen and speculated that Woods actually seemed really unhappy.

The comment explained, “She seemed so unhappy, and it makes me feel sorry for her- doesn’t excuse what she did with Tristan but, jeez I can’t imagine how Jordyn must have felt all those years.”

Other posts and viewers reinforced this message. Another comment read, “Many people think Jordyn was deeply unhappy in their friendship and didn’t like constantly being in Kylie’s shadow.”

The viewer took it a step further and shared, “Some people even believe Jordyn purposely made out with Tristian to escape the Kardashian’s.”

Though that might seem like a stretch to many people, some of the viewers of Keeping Up With the Kardashians find the theory to be feasible. Nonetheless, the thread is a testimony to the lingering emotions so fans have for Woods regarding the scandal.
