There are lots of fun things about being a celebrity.
Money, fame, adoring fans … what’s not to like?
As it turns out, if you just think about it for a minute, there are actually quite a few things not to like — for instance, all those strangers who feel like it’s OK to criticize you for each and every thing you do.
Sometimes it’s deserved, of course, but a lot of times, haters hate just for the fun of it.
The Duggars know that. They know it very, very well.
To be clear, the Duggars have done several things through the years that deserve heaps and heaps of hate.
That horrible molestation scandal, and the way Jim Bob and Michelle handled it? Despicable.
Josh’s Ashley Madison mistakes and his admission that he was addicted to both sex and porn? Yes, sure, throw all kinds of shade at that.
But a few days ago, Jill posted this photo of her younger son, Samuel, on Instagram:
And surely there are things more deserving of your outrage than this.
“That moment when you hear the rumble and you’re like, ‘oh no! Quick! Stand him upright before he….too late,” Jill captioned the picture.
She added the hashtags “Samuel Scott Dillard,” “Sam the Man,” and “blowout,” just in case you needed a little more information.
The photo is instantly relatable for anyone who’s ever spent any significant amount of time around babies. Things like this happen, and they happen often.
But still, a lot of people feel like, for many reasons, Jill was wrong for sharing this.
“What would possess you to post such a dumb picture, Jill?” one of her followers asked. “Slow day at the house of Derelict Dillweed?”
All right, that’s a pretty solid nickname for Derick Dillard, we’re not going to lie. But things do get a lot worse.
“Why the hell would you post a pic of poop coming thru onesie?” another person asked. “Just another reason showing how you ‘girls’ really don’t have a life outside of being submissive to your hubbys.”
Someone told Jill that her post was “really not in good taste,” and someone else said “Seriously, it’s gross and nobody wants to see that.”
For one of her followers, the picture was simply too much — this person wrote “SMDH – yes quick take a pic post it on social media. Screw the fact he should of been changed.”
“Same as you did to poor Izzy bind him in a blanket let him cry as you take pics to post. Social Media comes before your kids damn Jill you are your parents!”
Way harsh, right?
But honestly, these people are kind of right.
If you’re on social media yourself, there’s a good chance that you’ve seen photos like these — some parents just enjoy sharing things like this.
You’d think that more people would understand that their friends don’t really care to see picture of actual poop while scrolling through their Instagram feeds …
But obviously you’d think wrong.
Still, this is all harmless, and we’re sure precious little Samuel didn’t suffer too much while his mom put off changing him for a second to take this picture.
Though to be clear, it’s definitely gross.
