SISTER Wives fans slammed Kody Brown after he suggested that his daughter Ysabel undergo major back surgery without him or any other family members with her.
Kody shares Ysabel, now 18, with his wife Christine, as well as five other kids with her.

The couple have had a “rocky” relationship for years, but fans don’t think that should affect how he treats his daughter.
Ysabel has long suffered from scoliosis, but she had to keep putting off scheduling surgery for it because she didn’t have any insurance.
Christine revealed during the Sister Wives season finale that her daughter’s pain level had been at around an eight and half for a while now, and after their new insurance kicked in, they got a surgery down on the books.

He didn’t want her to even have the operation yet because of the pandemic, but when Christine explained that she needed it because of the main, he suggested that nobody accompany her because of possible exposure to the virus.
Fans on Reddit slammed Kody for suggesting this and for making Ysabel visibly upset by it.
One user wrote: ”I have chronic back pain, and not only can’t she go through the surgery alone, she can’t fly alone because I doubt she can handle her damn suitcase!
“Kody is hot garbage.”

Another said: “The fact that Kody thought Christine wanting Ysabel to get this surgery because of severe pain was an attempt to manipulate Kody is f***ing disgusting.
“I hate Kody so much, he deserves to rot in his mansion with Robyn while Christine finds someone who actually loves her.”
Others called out Kody for not putting his sufferring daughter above his other wives – Meri, Janelle, and Robyn.
Many explained that Ysabel and anyone who went with her to the surgery would have to quarantine before the trip, during the trip, and after the trip, which would lessen any risk of exposure to the rest of the family upon their return.

They said Kody should’ve put being there for his daughter above time spent away from his other family members because she needed him.
One Redditer wrote: “Well tough t*ts Kody you spend that much time away from jenelle and Meri! You owe Christine that kind of quality time!
“He spends most of his time with Robyn anyway he can be away from her for a while”
Christine, 49, called Kody’s suggestion “ridiculous and stupid.”

After Ysabel started to cry over the possibility of having to go through everything alone, her mom assured her that that was “not an option” and that she “wouldn’t do that to [her].”
Christine revealed to sister wife Meri elsewhere in the finale that she “can’t do marriage with Kody anymore.”
On Sunday, which was also when the episode aired, Ysabel celebrated her mom’s birthday by calling her “undoubtedly” her most “favorite person in this whole wide world.
She added: “Iwouldn’t be the person i am today without your loving nature and beautiful soul.
“You’re 49 and still don’t have a single grey hair- thanks for the great genetics coming my way <3”
