Yellowstone fans are at it again. The modern-western series has become one of the most popular shows on television. Fans from all around the world tune in every week to catch up with the Dutton family and their massive cattle ranch. Since the Season 3 Finale aired in August of 2020, fans of the show have been analyzing every aspect of the series. From discussing the fate of Beth Dutton to speculation of Rip being murdered, fans are leaving no stone unturned. They have discussed similarities between Kayce Dutton and his father John. Now they are turning their sights on Kayce’s wife Monica. A thread on Reddit has begun discussing the “irrational dislike” of Yellowstone’s Monica Dutton.

Kelsey Chow plays the unlikeable Monica Dutton in the series Yellowstone. Fans may remember Chow from the series One Tree Hill where she plays the role of Gigi. More recently, she currently appears as Swanee Capps in the television series Fargo. Being the oldest of three siblings, a younger brother as well as a younger sister, Chow has had a successful career. She studied dance at a young age and fell in love with performing. Chow performed in school plays as well as community theaters. She became a member of the Hammond Select Ensemble, where she would go on to perform in Italy and other far-off places.
The Yellowstone star has gone by the name Kelsey Chow throughout most of her career. After landing roles in Wind River and Yellowstone, where she plays Native American women, she chooses to use the name Kelsey Asbille.
Hating On Monica
One fan of Yellowstone recently felt the need to share their dislike of Monica on Reddit.
“I cant describe it. I want to fast forward every scene that she’s in. I’m rewatching season 3 and she said something like “don’t kill something when you’re loving me.” Ugh! I just want her to stop talking. Is it the actress or the character? She’s the most boring person alive.
I dont want the show runners to kill her off, but maybe she can move far, far away and leave Tate and Kayce.
There are boring characters in every show but for some reason, she’s unbearable to watch. Is it just me?”
Some Redditors came to Monica’s defense saying,
“I never understood the hate against her. The actress is kind of weak and the character is a bit bland but she is OK imo. I agree she is probably one of the less interesting characters tho.”
Others were in total agreeance.
“She drives me insane. She’s just so blahh. Also her now living on the ranch and benefiting from it but bitching about it at the same time drives me insane. It’s kinda like biting the hand that feeds you.
I don’t know she’s just my least favorite and if they killed her off it wouldn’t change the show in my opinion.”
One Redditor has an issue with the casting of the Native American character.
“For me, it’s the character AND the actress. The character is so dull . She adds little to the show IMO and it’s hard to follow her story arc. I think they just added her to a native character in the family. I also take issue with the show hiring an Asian-American actress to play someone native. She also lied about being Eastern Band Cherokee and began using “Kelly Asbille” professionally rather than “Kelly Chow” (I believe Asbille is her middle name).”
Whatever your opinion, it is clear that Monica has been one of the most disliked characters on Yellowstone. There are plenty of reasons to dislike her. Fans of Kayce may take it personally the number of things Monica has put Kayce through. It is not to say Kayce is a perfect husband. However, it is not as if Monica was unaware of Kayce’s background when they married. What do you think? Is Monica unjustly hated? Or is there validity to what fans are saying?
