After Jordyn Woods Addressed The Tristan Thompson Cheating Allegations, It Seems Like She’s Won People Over

“Not everyday sit back and watch somebody got crucified.”

In what was truly a pop culture moment for the ages, Jordyn Woods joined Jada Pinkett Smith on Red Table Talk to tell her side of the story after getting caught up in some drama involving Khloé Kardashian and the father of her baby, Tristan Thompson.

The interview, which aired on Friday, has now been viewed more than 20 million times on Facebook.

During the conversation, Jordyn, 21, admitted she went to an afterparty at Tristan’s house with some friends, and that “On the way out, he did kiss me. No passion...no tongue kiss, no making out, no nothing.”

She denied giving Tristan a lap dance or having an intimate relationship with him.

“The last thing I wanted to do was be that person,” she said. “I’m no home-wrecker. I would never try to hurt someone’s home, especially someone that I love.”

As you might know, Jordyn is Kylie Jenner’s BFF and is very close with the Jenner–Kardashian family.

Well, along with millions of other people, Khloé, 34, was also apparently watching the interview, and immediately went on Twitter to drag Jordyn. She accused her of lying AND breaking up her family, which people have thoughts about.

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!

Of course, there were many people who agreed with Khloé.

Anyone who is team #jordynwoods should just exit from my life right now. #teamkhloe

Khloé also went on to like three tweets from those who were on her side.

On the flip side, however, a lot of people have come to Jordyn’s defence.

@khloekardashian @jordynwoods I don’t recall Jordyn going public until today🤔🤔 however I do recall shade from Kim, malika and larsa. All public. All week.

They wanted to know why Khloé didn’t appear to be placing as much blame on her S.O. as she was on Jordyn over the allegations.

Hate to be that person, but why is Khloe placing so much blame on Jordyn and directing her anger towards her vs the man who had an obligation to be faithful in his relationship with her? Idk I just hate seeing all the blame thrown on her

Well, this narrative is picking up steam. Jordyn’s newfound supporters include British singer Jamelia, who expressed concern that a young black woman was being vilified.

“I have to call out the media/internet/trolls when dealing with Jordyn Woods. I urge you not participate in the diabolical crucifixion of our young black sister. Particularly when it is instigated, fuelled and supported by people guilty of their own abominable TRASH,” Jamelia wrote on Saturday morning.

A lot of people have said that, if the allegations are true, Tristan is the one who should carry the burden of blame.

@khloekardashian @jordynwoods The pie chart says otherwise...

Stop blaming the heaux and blame the actual shitbags who are accidentally dropping their dicks into other women. https://t.co/XNJ00foyu1

Others don’t really understand why people are pointing the finger at Jordyn.

Khloe: Jordyn is ruining my family and relationship Everyone: JORDYNNNNN??????

There’s also a large wave of support for Jordyn because of the Smiths’ cosign. As pointed out in the Red Table Talk episode, Will Smith has known Jordyn all her life, and has stepped in as a father figure after her dad died.

If Will Smith tells me to be Team Jordyn, I’m gonna be #TeamJordyn

I respect jada and will for what allowing that Jordyn girl to say her side. Not everyday sit back and watch somebody got crucified

How I’ll fall asleep knowing that Jordyn can fall asleep comfortably with knowing she has people on her side #TeamJordyn

And some people are going all out to support Jordyn.

We’re buying them all https://t.co/X42hjCE2ik
