Kylie Jenner posted a Father’s Day message for Caitlyn Jenner over the weekend and people have had a lot to say about it…
We all know about the famous Caitlyn Jenner transformation.
Remember? When the gold-medal-winning Olympian and partner to Kris Jenner transitioned into a woman back in 2015?
It was a huge part of the bizarre public spectacle that is Keeping up with the Kardashian’s.
Caitlyn came into Kris’ life after the death of her first husband, attorney, Robert Kardashian.
She went on to have 2 children with Kris (Kendal, and Kylie) and was hastily blended as a significant father figure to all the Kardashian sisters.
And, in true Kardashian-Jenner fashion, she came out on the cover of Vanity Fair.
People marveled at the impressive transformation, which had completely eliminated any traces of her previous self. She underwent her final operation – the irreversible sex-reassignment surgery – in 2017, officially marking the birth of Caitlyn.
In her debut Vanity Fair interview as Caitlyn, she explained how liberating it felt to finally be open as a woman: “I have nothing left to hide. I am kind of a free person, a free soul. Up to this point, I would wear, you know, Bruce would wear sweatshirts with hoods on them so paparazzi can’t get pictures and all that kind of crap.”
When asked about sending a full airplane out just to pick up her Mom, Caitlyn explained:
“I know. What I told her: “Isn’t Caitlyn a much better friend?” Bruce, he would never send a plane. No, no, no, what a jerk the guy was, O.K., Caitlyn is like, “Send the plane. Mom, we’re sending a plane, we’re going to go pick you up and bring you down here.”… It seems like she has a lot more friends than he ever had.”
The shocking transition understandably took its toll on her daughters, Kendall and Kylie.
“My dad says it herself sometimes, it’s kind of like mourning the loss of someone, because it is,” Kendall said in a candid interview about Caitlyn’s transition.
“My dad is my dad, but he’s not there physically anymore. But she lets me call her dad – that’s the last little piece of dad I’ve got.”
“It’s an adjustment. It’s something you have to get used to. But I’ve known since I was a kid,” Kendall revealed in the same interview. “He never confirmed it to me, but I’ve known for a very long time. It’s the same person.”
In addition to Kris Jenner and the other Kardashian sisters cutting ties with Caitlyn Jenner after the release of her memoir, The Secrets of My Life, the youngest Jenner sisters soon found themselves growing distant from their father.
And Kendall has publically remained loyal to her mom, Kris, during her parents’ feud.
“Kendall is loyal to Kris [Jenner] and has very little to do with her dad. The more time that has passed, the more she feels Caitlyn has let her down with the things she has said and with her actions,” a source shared with E! News back in 2017.
Last year, Kendall’s ex-boyfriend and NBA star, Blake Griffin, decided to have his own little jibe at their damaged father-daughter relationship.
It was a very cringe-worthy moment…
He started by genuinely thanking Caitlyn for her bravery with her transition, and the doors she has opened for other trans people. So far, so good, right? However, he then went on to say:
“On behalf of the entire NBA and half of the rappers on the Billboard charts, I want to thank you for giving your daughters their daddy issues.”
Somebody pass Caitlyn the suncream, because she just got burnt.
Though she initially laughed and clapped along with the brutal joke, she responded with a slightly frosty remark:
“I’m not perfect. I’m a person trying to figure out my life, just like everyone else. All I want is for future generations of transgender people to know that if I can find the courage to be who I am, then you can too. If you have a problem with that, then you can suck my d*ck. If you can find it!”
But what we can imagine is how furious this will have made “momager” Kris Jenner.
And when Caitlyn very publically accused Kris of being “emotionally abusive” during their marriage, the former Olympian found herself being more and more distanced from the famous family.
Until now, that is!
And the Kardashian clan was quick to share some candid memories on Instagram with the fathers in their lives.
Including the late Robert Kardashian, her sons-in-law, and other members of her family.
But fans were quick to point out… where’s Caitlyn?
Which lead to the manager reposting the Father’s Day message – but this time, including Caitlyn.
However, it was just too late for Kris…
As fans took to social media to brutally mock the manager for her mistake.
But regardless of this very obvious dislike, Kendall, Kylie, and the rest of the Kardashian clan each made their own tribute to their dad on Father’s Day.
She has famously been in a feud with Caitlyn for a few years now, so that’s one that we most certainly didn’t expect to see.
With a simple caption: “I love you.”
Well, her Father’s Day tribute has left fans feeling very confused… and not in a good way.
And she captioned it, “Happy dad’s day, love you.”
But with the internet being the internet, “confused” fans began to question why Kylie was calling Caitlyn dad, even though she and Kendall have made this perfectly clear in the past.
And these fans clearly haven’t taken in a word of what the girls have said about their dad in the past.
The fact that we’re in 2020 and people are still making comments like this doesn’t sit well with us, quite frankly.
When on Earth will we see an attitude change?!
Caitlyn is more than happy for her kids to continue calling her “dad” and she has been very vocal about this in the past.
It really isn’t hard to understand…
And the people who are questioning it are in serious need of a reality check.
And people should start respecting whatever works for them as a family, regardless of the standards our society currently holds.
