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.
So, understandably, the world was shocked when Caitlyn was born.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.
And she couldn't be happier.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."
Caitlyn insists that she is now a "much nicer person."
Yet, despite Caitlyn being happier and more popular than ever...Kendall and Kylie.
For the 2 girls, the birth of Caitlyn meant the loss of their dad as they knew him.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."
Though Kendall insisted that she'd known about her dad's gender identity for years.
However, both Kendall and Kylie had reportedly distanced themselves from their dad.
There has been a noticeable strain in Caitlyn's relationship with her daughters over the years...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.
And, to add even more fuel to the fire...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!"
We can't imagine how awkward this must have been for Kendall and Kylie...
We're all well aware of the turbulent relationship Kris has had with Caitlyn since her transition...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.
Millions of people celebrated Father's Day over the weekend...
Kris posted a collage of all the father figures in her life...
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?
Not Kris Jenner wishing everyone a Happy Father’s Day and purposely snubbing Caitlyn. 💀 https://t.co/GOABp76XXc— Peach Korobela (@Peach Korobela)1592748945.0
So many of Kris' followers reminded her that she had forgotten Caitlyn...
However, it was just too late for Kris...
As fans took to social media to brutally mock the manager for her mistake.
@KrisJenner FORGOT TO INCLUDE CAITLYN IN HER FATHERS DAY POST THAT SHE POSTED EARLIER SO SHE HAD TO REPOST ANOTHER… https://t.co/bK8n1yND6j— baddestbarb🥶 (@baddestbarb🥶)1592757127.0
It seems that Kris just can't keep her opinions of Caitlyn to herself...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.
Khloe Kardashian even paid tribute...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.
But Kylie on the other hand...
Well, her Father's Day tribute has left fans feeling very confused... and not in a good way.
The amount of transphobic comments kylie Jenner gets when she posts a picture with caitlyn is actually scary ,in big 2020— Nell (@Nell)1592816439.0
Kylie posted another cute throwback picture of her and Caitlyn...
Some very ignorant comments were made...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?!
kylie and khloe wishing Caitlyn Jenner a Happy Father’s Day ain’t sit right w me....— kay (@kay)1592820100.0
But thankfully, this Twitter user summed things up perfectly...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.
y do ppl always make fun of when kylie jenner n stuff say happy father's day to caitlyn...like yes she's a woman no… https://t.co/Dp9TpgzpNg— princess p 👑✨ (@princess p 👑✨)1592806703.0
