Anna Duggar Returns to Twitter, Gets Roasted By Fans

Anna Duggar is something of a controversial figure.

Some view her as one of the many victims of her husband, while others believe her to be complicit in the Josh Duggar sex scandals.

Whatever your personal take on Josh’s controversial wife, it’s not hard to see why she’s mostly decided to avoid social media in recent years.

And it’s also not hard to see why her recent return to Twitter resulted in an avalanche of criticism.

The mother of five returned to the social media platform with belated holiday wishes and a photo of her ever-expanding family.

“Merry CHRISTmas!” she captioned the photo, not so subtly reminding her followers that she’s all about JC.

Needless to say, the pious greeting coupled with a photo of a known child molester didn’t sit well with many Twitter users.

And some of them were quite vocal in their criticism of Anna.

“How can you all proclaim to be followers of Christ yet turn a blind eye to Josh’s horrific Child molestation?” one follower posted.

“I never even heard him apologize,” she added, which is a fair point.

For all the apologies that heve been issued on his behalf, for all the excuses and equivocations and tearful pleas for unserstanding, we’ve never once heard Josh actually admit to any wrong doing and simply apologize.

Some say Anna is putting her children in harm’s way by not leaving Josh and demanding full custody.

Others, however, believe she’s one of her husband’s many victims, and may feel that she has no choice but to stay with him.

As you may, recall in the months after the world learned that Josh molested five young girls, it was revealed that he had gone to great lengths to try and cheat on Anna 

It was only then that Josh checked into rehab for sex addiction treatment, a move that led many to believe the Duggars take marital infidelity more seriously than child molestation.

Shortly after he returned home, it was revealed that Josh and Anna were expecting a fifth child, and many further criticized the long-suffering mother and wife for bringing another kid into a dangerous situation.

Obviously, the situation is complex, and it’s entirely possible that Anna is both victim and accomplice.

Whatever the case, it seems she won’t be receiving the warm welcome she used to enjoy on Twitter anytime soon.

Josh Duggar: Is He Cheating on Anna … With His Family’s Permission?!

The memory of the Josh Duggar sex scandals is still fresh in the mind of many Counting On viewers.

Part of the reason for this is that the two incidents occurred in such rapid succession, that it looked to many as though his family would never be able to recover its wholesome reputation.

But just over two years later, the Duggars are back on TV and pulling in ratings comparable to those of their original series.

Of course, Josh hasn’t been along for the ride.

He’s still persona non grata on Counting On, to the point that the family has gone to great lengths to edit Josh out of scenes when he ends up in a shot accidentally.

The main reason for this, of course, is the egregious nature of Josh’s past misconduct.

But some fans are convinced that a big part of why the Duggars refuse to allow Josh on camera is the fact that his inppropriate behavior has continued unabated.

According to The Inquisitr, an anonymous insider has been commenting on Duggar-related articles and social media pages and claiming that the family has attempted to keep Josh out of trouble by finding willing “volunteers” from within their church congregation to have sex with him. 

“Josh Duggar, and not surprising if the recent blind about his ‘church’ recruiting volunteers from among the congregation to satisfy his sexual appetite is true, AS IF reinforcing inappropriate behavior ever changes anything,” the source wrote this week.

Obviously, if this is true then it would mean Josh’s parents are more directly involved in his sexual misconduct than previously thought.

It would also reinforce the notion that the Duggars are not simply religious zealots but dangerous cultists, preying on the vulnerable and enlisting others to help them dupe their devoted fan base.

Josh is rarely seen in public these days, and outside of an occasional photo on his family’s official Facebook page, he maintains no media presence at all.

He spends his days working on one of his family’s many used car lots, and his nights at home with his family.

Or at least that’s the narrative we’ve been sold for the past two years.

Seems unlikely that Josh has learned to entirely suppress his darker instincts.

But it’s equally unlikely that his family would ever admit to helping him keep his demons at bay through such nefarious methods.

Dannielynn, Larry Birkhead Honor Anna Nicole in the Bahamas

The world has been very critical of Larry Birkhead's apparent exploitation of his daughter, Dannielynn, accusing him of Anna Nicole Smith's life and death for goodwill. And, of course, for cash.

But we've seen less of him, lately. The last time he was really on our radar was, what, when he went on Hollywood Medium?

Now he and Dannielynn — who is now 11 years old — are back in a video (below) showing their adventures together as Anna Nicole's daughter visits the land of her birth: The Bahamas.

Anna Nicole Smith was a sweet woman who died too young.

After an epic battle in which multiple men claimed paternity of her infant daughter, it was determined that Larry had fathered Dannielynn Hope Marshall Birkhead.

Larry hasn't always been viewed as the best father. Notably, he signed Dannielynn up for modeling when she was six years old.

(In case you've forgotten, Anna Nicole herself was a troubled ex-model, and it's widely believed that she'd still be alive today if she hadn't been thrust into the spotlight as she was)

Dannielynn is 11 years old, now. (Anybody else feeling super old?)

And Larry Birkhead decided that it was high time that he take her on a trip to the Bahamas, where she was born. Whether he did it for Dannielynn or to get his face on camera again … well, that's hard to know.

But the video's very sweet.

In the video, Larry Birkhead does most (nearly all) of the talking to Us Weekly's cameras as he and Dannielynn explore the Bahamas.

"This trip back for Dannielynn is kind of special because she doesn’t really know a whole lot about the place where she was born."

That sounds like a plausible reason to go.

"When Dannielynn was little and I used to bring her here, the people used to come out screaming, ‘The people’s princess Dannielynn is here,’ cause it was such a big deal about her birth here, and they embrace her and they come up and ask for pictures and stuff all the time."

Well, it's not Dannielynn's fault that a rich white child getting called a "princess" within the Caribbean is … awkward. Also, a couple of women did ask for a selfie.

Larry talks about the wonderful things that Anna Nicole did with her wealth.

"She was charitable and she did a lot of things for people that people don’t know."

She was, by all accounts, a total sweetheart.

"I’m still getting these cards from kids that she supported overseas and they didn’t know she was Anna Nicole, but they’d come to have found out later."

That is precious.

He takes Dannielynn to a pastel pink courthouse. The very courthouse where he won his paternity case.

"I remember coming out of this door right here and they said, ‘You can take Dannielynn home to Kentucky or wherever you’re gonna move.’ And I came out, I was so happy."

Larry Birkhead tells the cameras about Dannielynn.

"She likes scary movies, like her mom. She likes to do roller coasters and fun things like her mom used to."

She also has a beautiful smile.

As for her current interests … they're very age-appropriate.

"Dannielynn is more interested in wanting to be a YouTuber and make her own videos, so those are the types of things that she’s interested in."

She's beautiful and young and famous, which describes a lot of YouTubers. (We don't imagine that she's a horrifying racist like certain YouTubers have turned out to be)

"I still have to warn her that, you know, your friend might have a YouTube account, but if you have a YouTube account that’s different, because people know who you are."

That is a somewhat clumsily worded version of very good advice.

Honestly, if and when Dannielynn gets her own YouTube channel (what a gift that would be), comments might need to be disabled. There are some real creeps who would love nothing more than to upset a famous tween girl.

Larry continues describe what it's like being Dannielynn's parent.

"Sometimes you feel like a bodyguard, sometimes you feel like a chauffeur."

That's, well, that's what parenting is like.

"It depends on what the day is. But my job is dad and I think I’ve done a pretty good job. She’s adjusted to it and she’s just a normal kid."

Dannielynn seems obsessed with her phone, which is relatable and age-appropriate.
