Derick and Jill Dillard issue a statement, throwing shade.

In one part of their post, Jill and Derick write, “Moreover, ‘[h]e who justifies the wicked and he who condemns the righteous are both alike an abomination to the Lord.’ (Proverbs 17:15).  We have been lied to so much that we wanted to hear the evidence for ourselves in court.  After seeing all the evidence as it was presented, we believe that the jury reached a just verdict today, consistent with the truth beyond a reasonable doubt.”

Many readers think this could be directed at Jim Bob, who has long been blamed for covering up Josh’s inappropriate actions. In the full statement, Jill and Derick don’t mention Jim Bob by name. But it certainly seems like the message throws some shade at him without being too obvious.

Another points out the part where Jill and Derick mention the lies they’ve been told. The user writes, “This is the highlight for me. Straight up calling out JB and Michelle.”

Someone else chimes in, “I kind of LOVE the verses she shared. They called JB out in the best way. He’s just as guilty as Josh for covering it up and protecting him.”
