On Monday’s “The View,” the co-hosts debated whether it’s appropriate for Kris Jenner to vacation while son Rob Kardashian is mired in scandal. Watch the video below.

As Gossip Cop has reported, last week Kardashian was ordered to stay away from former fiancée Blac Chyna after posting her nude photos on social media during an online meltdown. While it’s unclear if he will face criminal charges under California’s revenge porn law, his reputation is in tatters. Despite the public controversy, Jenner still went on a planned vacation.

And on Sunday, she shared a picture from the trip, writing, “#yachtlife #blessed #its5oclocksomewhere.” That led some to criticize her for seemingly being disinterested in her son’s ongoing issues. On the ABC talk show, the panelists were divided. When Whoopi Goldberg introduced the topic, Jedediah Bila exclaimed, “He’s 30! This is a grown man!”

Joy Behar noted, “When Trump talks about Donald Jr, he calls him ‘my boy, my kid.’ He’s 39… He’s not a kid and neither is Kardashian.” But Sunny Hostin was “surprised” that Jenner wasn’t showing how she’s a “media maven” by tackling the scandal, and questioned her traveling when “Rob has suffered from depression” and “really went off the rails.” She added, “You’re only as happy as your unhappiest child. So as a mom, I was kinda surprised that she was in St. Tropez.”

Sara Haines suggested that the “babies of the family” get “coddled,” and perhaps Kardashian is struggling with leaving the nest. “So maybe this is a good opportunity,” she wondered, adding, “I’m sure she’s consulting [and] in touch.” It was Bila, though, who was the most passionate, defending Jenner and criticizing Kardashian. “He’s a grown man. He’s responsible for his decisions. It’s not her responsibility to stop her life. She’s not doing anything wrong. She’s on vacation,” she ranted.

Bila went on, “She’s not responsible for his actions, he is, and I think the best way to send that message is to say, ‘This is your problem. You made this mess. I’m here for you. I’m your mom. But I’m not stopping my life to fix your problems.’ I would never expect my parents to do that.” That led Hostin to admit, “Maybe I’m too much of a coddler.”

Behar also confessed, “It’s hard to care about this. I’m really trying to squeeze out some empathy here.” As for Goldberg, she had Jenner’s back, too. The moderator said towards the end, “The bottom line is we have no idea what the relationship is. We don’t know if she’s been in touch with him. And she posted a picture of herself having a good time and everybody’s jealous. Good on you!” Check out the video below.
