As the hit Western drama "Yellowstone" continues to captivate audiences, so do the passionate discussions among its dedicated fanbase. The show's characters, particularly ranch foreman Rip Wheeler (Cole Hauser), spark intense debates online.

While Yellowstone fans may think they know Rip Wheeler, the stoic, loyal ranch foreman with a troubled past. But beneath his tough exterior lies a man shaped by trauma, fueled by a fierce love for Beth Dutton, and haunted by a thirst for vengeance. Fans grapple with his harsh treatment of others, questioning whether his traumatic past excuses his behavior.

Not All Yellowstone Fans Love Rip's Attitude

In the "Yellowstone" subreddit, a lively thread titled "Am I the only one that can't stand Rip??" reveals a growing sentiment among viewers. Some fans find his constant mistreatment of ranch hands, particularly the vulnerable newcomer Carter, deeply unsettling.

This has led to a divide among the fanbase. Some loyalists argue that Rip's abusive upbringing explains, though doesn't necessarily justify, his abrasiveness. Others concur that he has veered down a troubling path, expressing hope for a "hardcore reality check" to change his ways.

Rip's Relationship with Beth Dutton: Fueling the Fire?

Many fans believe that Rip's intense relationship with the equally ruthless Beth Dutton (Kelly Reilly) exacerbates his harsh tendencies. Some speculate that the writers intentionally highlight Rip's flaws to remind viewers that he is not a simple hero.

The Hope for Rip's Redemption

Despite the criticism, a significant portion of the fanbase remains hopeful for Rip's redemption. They believe his capacity for love and loyalty hints at a better man beneath the rough exterior. As "Yellowstone" continues, fans eagerly anticipate how Rip's character will evolve and whether he can find a balance between his tough nature and his inherent goodness.
