'Sister Wives': Fans say Kody lacked concern for Meri as she broke down crying amid forest fire evacuation
The latest episode (March 29) of 'Sister Wives' gave viewers a glimpse of the panic that one goes through when they find out that their house might be in the evacuation zone due to first fires. Meri Brown found out that there was forest fire near her house and there were no signs of it stopping. The situation put her in a spot where she was forced to quickly pack the things that were dear to her.
Meri was helped by the rest of the sister wives as she informed them about the things that have to be packed. Meanwhile, Kody Brown stepped in and decided to bring a bigger truck to put all of Meri's things. Even though Meri insisted that they only took the things that were important, Kody insisted that it was important to take everything with them.
Meri finally agreed and confessed that she was happy to see how Kody was stepping in to help. However, fans were not too happy about his actions. Many thought that even though Kody was ready to help with the move, he did not show any sympathy or compassion towards Meri while she was struggling with the move.
They pointed out that Meri had been really emotional and broke down crying but Kody decided to ignore it rather than give her a hug and tell her that things would be fine. "Kody couldn't even hug Meri during her emotional state. There's no connection between them. Meri pack up for the last time and leave this family," read one comment.
Another added, "Kody couldn’t even muster up a little sympathy for Meri WHILE WILDFIRES RAGE." Another user echoed similar thoughts as the comment read, "Would it have killed Kody to give Meri a hug and tell her it’s going to be ok ?"
This is not the first time when viewers have raised their issue about Meri and Kody's relationship. Many have pointed out that the love between them has faded and this has urged fans to ask Meri to leave the family. Meri has also hinted on the show that things are not alright between him and Kody.
Despite this, the two still stick by each other. However, the question remains, for how long will this last?
'Sister Wives' airs on Sundays at 10 pm ET on TLC.
