Jinger Duggar Gets Mom-Shamed Again: Enough With the Head Wraps!

Back in July, Jinger Duggar welcomed her first child.

And like so many of her sisters, she’s enjoyed sharing all the joys of her motherhood with her millions of social media followers.

Unfortunately, as with her sisters, many of Jinger’s followers visit her page for the sole purpose of talking trash.

Yes, mom-shaming the Duggars is a favorite activity of many Instagram trolls.

And the folks who engage in this sort of activity really don’t need much to set them off.

They can be triggered by Jessa Duggar’s messy house, Jill’s perceived shortcomings as a homeschool teacher, or even Felicity Vuolo’s head wraps.

Yes, Jinger enjoys putting various forms of headgear on her child, and for reasons we can’t quite figure, a very vocal contingent of Instagram users finds this practice reprehensible.

And the craziest part is, they can’t even agree on why it’s wrong.

At first, Jinger was slammed for cultural appropriation.

As is the case most of the time that term is used, people were angry, but they weren’t really sure why.

Now that that argument has been laid to rest — probably because Jinger’s haters realized no culture can lay claim to the practice of wrapping fabric around a baby’s head — several new ones have emerged.

Jinger recently posted the photo below to Instagram, setting off a whole new round of criticism:

“Felicity helping Uncle Scott with interviews,” she captioned the pic.

Seems innocent enough, but some fans took issue with little Lissy’s hat.

A few speculated that Jinger is planning to launch a children’s fashion line, and she’s “using” Felicity to model her wares.

There’s no indication that’s true, but even if it were … would that really be so bad?

Others simply don’t care for Felicity’s fashion sense.

“Young moms are going overboard with head wraps for their girls all the time,” wrote one.

Another commented that Felicity looks like “an old lady.”

Yes, the kind of people who spend their time insulting babies on the internet are firmly convinced that their voices deserve to be heard.

This is some peak 2018 sh-t right here, folks. 

We shudder to think what next year might bring.

Jinger Duggar: Accused of Cultural Appropriation Over Felicity’s Head Wrap

Just a couple of weeks ago, Jinger Duggar was mom-shamed for making her baby wear gloves, which fans believe will hinder Felicity’s motor development.

This time, however, they’re getting parent-shamed for something else.

Are Jinger and Jeremy guilty of cultural appropriation?

Felicity and Jeremy shared this sweet photo on Instagram.

The parents captioned it: “Took Felicity out to the @cubs game.”

Felicity’s hands are once again entombed within mittens, which her parents put on her to keep her from scratching her face with her sharp nails.

That was not the primary focus of the mom-shamers this time.

This time, the concern is over a couple of things — first and foremost, that head wrap. Is it cultural appropriation?

“This is racism,” wrote one commenter very bluntly.

Another wrote that putting Felicity in the hair wrap was a “microaggression.”

A microaggression, folks, is a subtle jab against marginalized people that they experience every day.

(Like asking an American of Asian descent where they’re from, and not being satisfied with an answer like “Virginia”)

Some also shamed the parents for taking Felicity to a loud public space, but that took a backseat to the head wrap.

(Here is Khloe’s daughter, True Thompson, for comparison, since a fan brought it up)

When one fan asked why it’s okay for Khloe Kardashian’s baby True to wear one, another fan explained.

“The difference is,” the other fan wrote of Khloe. “Her baby is African American and entitled to wear one.”

Another just thought that it wasn’t fashionable, and wrote: “I really think a French beret is more baby appropriate and fashionable.”

It looks plenty stylish, but the appropriateness of it is in question.

Some fans rose to Jinger and Jeremy’s defense.

“Women of many cultures wear head wraps,” wrote one. “There nothing specifically African-American about it.”

That same commenter even cites an example: “Rosie the Riveter had a head wrap.”

“I think the baby looks adorable,” another writes. “Nothing to do with race. chill out people.”

“I hope you do not listen to these negative people,” that fan continues. “What is the problem that head was cover and she looks great.”

“They are not the problem you are reading into it more than needed,” the commenter claims. “Fashion is for everyone.”

Cultural appropriation is a complex subject, in part because a lot of people don’t realize when they’re doing it.

What’s more is that there can be real debate, even within marginalized communities, over what is and is not appropriation.

African head wraps are from sub-saharan Africa and predate the horrors of the trans-Atlantic slave trade.

In fact, head wraps were one of the few cultural symbols that African slaves were able to take with them to the Caribbean and to North America.

Unfortunately, some slave owners would force slaves to wear head wraps, which turned this cultural symbol into a symbol of oppression.

It is only in relatively recent decades that the natural hair movement has begun to reclaim the head wrap for black women in America.

As we said, this is such a complex subject. We are certainly not qualified to be the arbiters of what is and is not appropriation.

We will say that it’s definitely true that multiple cultures have used head wraps.

We tend to believe that claiming something as one’s own — for example, having a bunch of mostly white runway models wear hair wraps — would be appropriation.

Putting a baby in a stylish hair wrap, on the other hand? That seems a lot more benign.

Quite frankly, it’s kind of nice to think that any members of the Duggar family are willing to learn from any other cultures.

Selena Gomez: Justin and Hailey’s Engagement Is Messing With My Head!

Now that Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are engaged, many diehard Selenators are hoping that Selena Gomez can finally be free of him once and for all.

Unfortunately, a report says that Selena feels like she’s unable to move forward with a new relationship or delete old photos from her time with the Biebs.

It sounds like Justin’s engagement is messing with her head.

A source tells HollywoodLife that Selena is struggling to date in the face of Justin’s engagement.

“Selena feels like right now dating is not in the cards,” the insider reveals.

That’s interesting — there had been speculation that Justin was dating Hailey to get revenge on Selena for Selena’s own rebound.

Maybe the Caleb Stevens thing was never as big as some people believed.

“She thinks that it is hard to find someone because of her celebrity,” the source explains. “And its hard to meet people organically.”

There is, unfortunately, more to it.

“Plus she always thinks how it will be perceived to be with someone in the outside world,” the insider admits.

Dating someone is one thing. Publicly dating means inviting the scrutiny of millions.

The source explains: “She hates being defined by the people she doesn’t know on who she dates or doesn’t date.”

We can absolutely understand that.

Additionally, Selena apparently resents the amount of speculation that follows her every association.

“She can’t hang out with anyone without it turning into something,” the insider laments.

“And,” the source continues. “She knows it scares away the chance of love.”

That sounds so grim!

It’s a real obstacle, the insider explains, “because there are so many more layers to break through for any suitors that might want to be with her.”

Selena also worries that her fame and personal history drives away the sorts of men she would most like to be with.

“People don’t want to be with her,” the source fears. “Because it comes with so much more baggage.”

That is so unfair!

“She is trying to figure that out for herself,” the insider affirms. “And once she does she will be more prone to start dating and putting herself out there.”

That is great to hear.

“Its a process she wouldn’t like to deal with,” the source admits. “But she knows that it is her life and she has to manage it appropriately.”

Another insider tells HollywoodLife that Selena can’t delete her Bieber pics.

“Selena’s friends,” the source confesses. “Caught her looking at old selfies of her and Justin on her phone.”

As the Nick Joseph meme says, oh no baby what is you doing?

“Selena says she has tried to delete a lot of their pics,” the insider reveals.

“But,” the source continues. “She just can’t bring herself to get rid of all of them.”

“The pics are sweet memories,” the insider explains. “And Selena likes to look at them once in a while.”

That’s normal. And nostalgia is a hell of a drug.

The source says: “Seeing pics of Justin and her smiling, happy together, remind Selena of the good times she had with Justin.”

“She gets emotional when looking at them,” the insider spills. “And does not want to get rid of them.”

This apparently remains the case “even though he is preparing to marry someone else.”

Look, nobody has an easy time letting go of the good times in their past, even if they’ve become bittersweet.

But it is nothing short of tragic that one of the most talented, beautiful stars on the planet is being cock-blocked by her own history.

We hope that she is able to overcome this hurdle soon.

Selena deserves all of the happiness in the world.

And Justin has never let his dating history or fame hold him back. Not even a little.
