Duggar Family Criticized After Posting Photo on Facebook

July 05, 2017Jul 05, 2017

The Duggar family, led by Jim and Michelle Duggar, is most well-known from their original show ‘19 Kids and Counting' and for their strong faith. The family has faced a lot of backlash following the incident with one of their older children, Josh Duggar. Previously, it was publicly revealed that Josh was a part of a sex scandal involving a few of his sisters and since then, he has decided to take legal action against certain parties.

On July 3rd, the Duggars faced backlash again, but for a less serious reason. On the Duggar’s official Facebook account, a photo of Jill Duggar Dillard’s son, Israel ‘Izzy’ Dillard, was posted.

The photo shows Izzy eating a meal, consisting of chicken nuggets and french fries. The post states, "Yummy lunch for Izzy!" See the picture below.


In response, many users commented on the photo claiming it was an extremely unhealthy lunch. Some users suggested the plate should consist of healthier choices, such as vegetables.

Others came to the Duggar family’s defense. One user replied, “Why can’t people either say something nice or nothing at all?” Another stated, “I think he is adorable. I really wish there were less judgemental people out there.”
