The internet is ‘rooting’ for Caitlyn Jenner after she was the only camper who did not receive a care package from her family on the Nov. 25 episode of ‘I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here’. Fans are now slamming the ‘insensitive’ Kardashian-Jenner family.
Caitlyn Jenner has pulled on the heartstrings of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here viewers. The internet rallied around the reality star, 70, after Monday night’s episode, which showed the nine celebrity campers receiving care packages filled with notes from home, family photos and little food treats from loved ones. But, when Caitlyn got ahold of her package, it wasn’t from her immediate family, including daughters Cassandra, Kendall and Kylie Jenner or sons Brody, Brandon and Burt. — It was from her pet dogs.
James handed out the care packages to the nine celebs, who emotionally read each other’s notes from home and gazed at family photos, which resulted in tears and joy. As Caitlyn soaked it all in, her campmates leaned in to support her. Then, the father of six read her note: “Love you, stay strong. You’re killing it, everyone at home is rooting for you especially these two cuties.”
The note showed a cute photo of her two pooches. Despite the evident awkwardness of the situation, Caitlyn was a good sport. She played it off cool and said, ‘From my dogs!’, laughing. She added: ‘The really nice part about tonight was getting that little bit of contact from your family, to know that they love you and can’t wait for you to get out of jungle’.
Caitlyn got a two line care package letter and everyone else got a page.
