Jordyn Woods On Kardashians: "I Understood For The First Time What It's Like Being A Black Woman"
Updated: Apr 29, 2019
Well looks like the effect of the Kardashian curse is steadily waning.
That's right, following her drama with Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson in the (alleged) cheating scandal of the century, Jordyn Woods has surprisingly come out on the other side much better than expected. Yes, since her much talked about Red Table Talk interview with Jada Pinkett Smith, Woods effectively cleared her name has firmly gained the full support of the black community after being seemingly discarded by the Kardashian klan. Well it looks like sis is taking her newfound sense of black love and support and running with it full speed.
Recently Jordyn discussed her life now that she is without her all female shield of white privilege, The DailyMail reports that while serving on a Homecoming festival panel in Nigeria, Jordyn spoke about the backlash she faced after her fallout with Kylie Jenner and the Kardashian family.
"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]," she said. "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."
While some were confused about her comments, it is important to note that a lot of the "backlash," Jordyn received was actually just bevy of racial slurs mixed with equal parts death threats and just a dash of slut shaming. So, it makes since that she would now have renewed sense of hyper awareness of her societal identity.
Woods, who is only 21 years old, experienced this hatred not just from the millions of Kardashian fans, but from every average joe who keeps up with hot topics and has an opinion on everything celeb-related.
So, despite how crazy the quote sounds, Jordy gets a pass this time. The wording might be off, as I'm sure this wasn't the first time she was aware of her blackness, but we knew what she meant and to be fair, this incident definitely was a harsh reminder of how the world views & disrespects black women.
