Brody Jenner is not here for the negativity his ex, Kaitlynn Carter (opens in new tab), has faced of late, particularly tied to her recent hangouts with Miley Cyrus (opens in new tab).

Brody and Kaitlynn split earlier this month after a year of marriage (albeit, not the legally-binding sort). About a week after Brody and Kaitlynn called it quits, Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth (opens in new tab) shook the world and destroyed our collective believe in true love by announcing that they were also separating after eight months of marriage and about a decade of on- and off-again romance.

Shortly after Miley and Liam's announcement, the singer was spotted kissing Kaitlynn (opens in new tab), who faced backlash online. This weekend, Brody took to Instagram to share a statement on the issue, in which he called for the negativity against Kaitlynn to end.

He wrote:

The moral of the story: Let Kaitlynn (and Miley) live, please.
