Jordyn Woods Says Tristan Thompson Scandal Was A Reality Check

Jordyn Woods has been a staying booked and busy since parting ways with the Kardashian-Jenners. The model was ex-communicated after she was caught kissing Tristan Thompson, Khloe Kardashian’s baby daddy.

Earlier this week, life brought Woods to Nigeria where she took part in a panel at a Homecoming Festival according to Daily Mail.

In front of a crowd, Jordyn, 21, revealed that recent public backlash gave her an understanding of what it feels like to be a black woman.

“My little sister was bullied in school and I wanted to show her that if I was bullied by the world you can [get through it].

I understood for the first time what it’s like being a black woman in society, and how we can be so disrespected and nobody can really understand to that extent until you have to live it.”

Opinions on Jordyn seemed to be split down the middle after news of her philandering with Tristan Thompson surfaced. During her Red Table Talk with Jada Pinkett-Smith, she was shown support from the Black community. In contrast, many Kardashian stans bullied her online.

What do YOU think about Jordyn’s comments about experiencing Black woman struggles for the first time?
