Duggar: Jill Dillard and Amy King on Amy's Instagram

Recently, Jill Duggar Dillard shared a post on Instagram and asked for prayers. In her post, she revealed that a friend’s baby had been diagnosed with meningitis. She shared a picture of the family, featuring their three-month-old baby girl named Emma.

In response, many of Jill’s followers left encouraging messages. They said they would pray for the family. They are hopeful that the baby will recover from meningitis. Fellow TLC star Audrey Roloff and Jill’s sister-in-law Anna Duggar also left comments on the post.

In the comments section of her post, Jill was called out because she shared misinformation about meningitis. She said that it is not contagious. She also said that it is not preventable by vaccines. This caused a lot of drama in the comments. Those comments weren’t the only ones that got attention though.

Duggar cousin Amy King is accused of being “self-absorbed”

Jill’s cousin, Amy King, shared a comment on Jill’s post. She wrote, “Ohhh no. That’s Daxton’s age! def praying for her!!!” Amy is a new mom to a three-month-old baby boy, Daxton.


Plenty of other parents echoed Amy’s same sentiment because they have children the same age as Emma, the child with meningitis. They were imagining what it would be like if their own child was seriously ill.

In response to Amy’s comment, in a now-deleted comment, one of Jill’s followers called Amy “self-absorbed”.

Amy clears up her comment

Duggar fans began to back Amy up and defend her. They thought it was ridiculous that she was being called self-absorbed. In response to the accusation, Amy wrote a lengthy reply. In her reply, Amy wrote, “My heart goes out to this mama. I have a 3 month old which is why I mentioned Dax in the first place.. they are so small and I’m sure she’s scared, feeling a little helpless and needs prayer!”

She also thanked the commenter for “attacking” her. Another mother replied to this comment and agreed with Amy, saying, “As moms we often compare our kids age to others and empathize.” That mom added, “I guess I’m self absorbed too.” Many other parents said that they feel the same way Amy does.

Then, Amy continued to comment back and forth with a couple of Jill’s followers in the comments. She said that she wanted to ignore the negative comments, but she had to make sure no one thought she had “such a cold, self absorbed type of heart.”

It seems that most of the people in the comments section agree with what Amy had to say. They wished her a good day and gave her advice to “ignore the yucky people.”
