ROBYN Brown has been slammed for "blaming" Janelle's son Hunter for not seeing his siblings.
The Sister Wives star faced backlash for insisting during the season premiere on Monday night that Hunter, 24, hadn't asked to see his half-brothers and sisters.
It all kicked off with Kody Brown and his wives Meri, 50, Janelle, 52, Christine, 49, and Robyn, 43, discussing how they would get their families together for Christmas.
Janelle complained that her kids don't feel like they're seeing their siblings enough.
She said: "Hunter said, 'This is the only time in my entire career that I've will have been home this long and I haven't even seen Robyn's kids or Robyn's family."
Hunter had returned home after graduating from the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs following years of military training.
Discussing Janelle's words, Robyn said in a confessional: "To be honest, Janelle saying this about Hunter and I'm just like, well he hasn't asked to come over and visit outside.
"So if he wanted to come over and we just sit outside socially distanced, I'd be like yeah bring it on, that would be great."
To the group, she added: "I hate that we're having to socially distance from each other but I understand that everybody's got different things that they wanna do and so I guesss that's what we're doing.
"But I just feel like I tell the kids all the time, we're just lucky because there are so many people out there that are suffering and we're still a family and that's never going to change."
Viewers took to Reddit to slam Robyn for putting the responsibility on Hunter to get in touch, claiming she was the one who should reach out.
"I hated that Robyn responded to Janelle saying that Hunter is sad that he hasn’t seen Robyn or her kids, by saying 'well Hunter hasn’t asked to come over and sit outside,'" one critic wrote.
"Are you serious? You’re blaming the kids? You’re the parent, Robyn. He wants to see his father and siblings. The kids shouldn’t always be expected to be the ones to take the initiative. That’s the parents' job."
Another added: "Why did Hunter have to reach out AND go to her house? Why didn’t she ask Janelle when was a good time to come over and see Hunter? What a princess!"
A third posted: "Robyn probably gave everyone the impression not to reach out during Covid times."
Janelle has six kids with Kody – Madison, Logan, Savannah, Gabriel, Hunter and Garrison.
Robyn, meanwhile, shares Solomon and Ariella with the the TLC patriarch.
'FAVORITE' WIFE ROBYN
Elsewhere in the season premiere, Kody was slammed by fans for siding with his “favorite” wife Robyn over not moving to Utah despite Christine's pleas.
In Christine’s confessional, she revealed how “hard” the family’s denial was and how rocky her marriage to Kody has been.
She said: “It’s not just about moving back to Utah. It’s just not. I’m not going to make any drastic decisions on what I am going to do next today. I am hurt today.
“I really needed his support. I really did. Marriage is hard, but I never wanted the kind of marriage I have now. I never wanted to be so estranged and have extremely limited physical contact. Not even hand holding. It’s sad. My marriage to Kody is sad.”
MOVE TO UTAH
After Christine’s breakdown, Kody decided to speak to each of his wives about the possibility of moving to Utah.
After Robyn said she didn't want to move, Kody decided that the family were not moving.
As The Sun reported, Christine and Kody announced their split over social media earlier this month after the former third wife sold her Arizona home and moved to Utah.
Kody and Christine spiritually married in 1994.
She joined his first wife Meri and second wife Janelle, as fourth spouse Robyn entered the family in 2010.
They share children Mykelti, Aspyn, Ysabel, Paedon, Gwendlyn and Truley.
