Among the melanated, the overriding narratives are that Jordyn, 21, absolutely killed during her big moment in the spotlight, and Jada is the real MVP for providing a space for Black women to once again tell their stories while staying in the center of the narrative. Jada and her husband Will Smith, who have known Jordyn since she was born, are getting rightful credit for lifting Woods up against the infamous media machine that is the Kardashian clan. Some are even claiming Jordyn was the victim in this mess, pointing out that it sounded like she might have been kissed by Tristan Thompson without consent. Either way, the internet just can't stop talking about the scandal.
Woods, who is known mostly for being best friends with Kylie Jenner, did an interview with Pinkett-Smith on her popular Facebook Watch series Red Table Talk in an attempt to clear the air and share her truth regarding the rumors that she hooked up with Khloé Kardashian's boyfriend, Tristan Thompson.
During the candid and revealing sit-down, she gave a play-by-play of the events that led up to the kiss which she said completely caught her off guard.
Elsewhere in the interview, she admitted that she refrained from telling the reality TV family all of the details of what happened as she was "scared" of their reactions. Another outstanding tidbit from the interview was her confidently echoing the sentiments shared by many who have followed the story on social media that she was not the cause of the couple's breakup.

As expected, social media has had a field day with this scandal, especially with its latest developments. In fact, some celebrities and influencers like Masika Kalysha, T.S. Madison and Reagan Gomez even weighed in.
See their reactions, below:
I don't think Khloe & The Kardashians anticipated how much Black people would rally around Jordyn. Plus Will & Jada got her back. Nah, they didn't anticipate that one at all. And now Khloe is BIG mad that Jordyn also has a huge platform to shape her own narrative. Guess what? pic.twitter.com/XnndvaTaQ8— 🐼 (@aspiringdreamer) March 1, 2019
Jordyn just said she’ll do a lie detector test to prove she never slept with Tristan. If Jada carts out a machine I will drop to the floor.— Call Me By My @ (@NotAgainBen) March 1, 2019

Jada was like LETS BE CLEAR, Jordyn comes from LOVE & an ESTEEMED family—opening w/ her father’s legacy & how Jordyn was family before she was even born. Her friendship w/ Kylie is cute, but be clear she was born into LOVE and a powerful family b/4 she met the Kardashians— brunch bewt black ✊🏿 (@moeshamitchel) March 1, 2019
Jordyn Woods learned from the Kris Jenner handbook 👏🏾👏🏾! Sis going right over to the Red Table with Mother Jada. 😂😫 control your narrative Jordyn! Don’t let these Kardashians try and wash you like they did Chyna.— Vince B. Aries (@Vince_Aries) February 26, 2019
