Duggar Family Shares A New Post

On Instagram on Tuesday, Jim Bob and Michelle shared a new photo of their son, Jackson, 17. In the photo, Jackson is sitting beside a buck he shot while he was hunting. The parents write:

“Jackson got a nice buck on Saturday, the opening day of gun season here in Arkansas! We’ve already enjoyed some of the meat from his harvest! Deer jerky is one of our favorites to make. Jackson is a good shot, and becoming a great cook, too! 👨‍🍳”

Counting On Fans Blast Family For ‘Gross’ Content

In the comments section of Jim Bob and Michelle’s latest post, fans are commenting on how disgusting it is that they would allow their son to hunt and that they would post the photo online.

Fans are shocked to see that a conservative pro-life family would promote hunting in this way. Even though the family might eat meat and animal products, going out and killing animals is different, fans argue. One writes, “This isn’t very pro-life.” Others comment, “Nope,” or “Nononononono.” Another adds, “No dont like the victory in this photo at the animals expense. In bad taste im afraid. Animals arent trophies.”

It’s safe to say that this post has not been well-received by fans so far.

Plenty of other negative comments are filling the comments section of the post as well. Many users are pointing out that this may be a sign that the Duggars don’t currently have a PR rep because the timing doesn’t seem to be appropriate.

The Duggars haven’t responded to any of the comments on their post, so it doesn’t seem like they are going to address the criticism they have received so far. This isn’t the first time they have been under fire for their social media activity, however.

So, do you think this is hypocritical of the Duggars to post? Or do you think it’s okay based on their religious beliefs? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
