Jordyn Woods opened up about the fallout from the Tristan Thompson scandal during a recent interview, calling out the online trolls who targeted her during the controversy.

"I don't believe in clapping back, or reacting out of emotion. I could have handled this a million different ways, but I just went with what felt the most natural to me. Would I ever have wanted this to happen? Never. But shit happens. And in the end, I never want to see anyone hurt; I would hate to be the reason for anyone's pain. We all have to go to sleep with ourselves at night," she told UK magazine, Cosmopolitan.

She said that during the scandal, she was hooked on the internet, reading the criticism of her online.

"It becomes addictive to look on the internet, to look at your name. When I would look at my name and see all of the things that people were saying, it became like a tumour. It became cancerous to me." 

She adds that "The internet feels so entitled to have opinions about everything, but a lot of it is bullsh*t. These are real people, with real lives. People are so detached that they don't feel empathy, they don't feel bad, they don't realise that the one message that you sent laughing at someone could be the message that pushes that person off the ledge."

Unfortunately, when you live your life in front of the cameras, especially on reality television - people feel invested - but Black Twitter has had her back!
