Jill Dillard: Drilled on Instagram Over Child-Proofing, Christian Music Choices

Once again, Jill Duggar’s parenting skills as the mother of two continues to hear it from her “fans” over literally every photo.

The Counting On veteran shared a photo of herself installing some baby-proof locks on her kitchen cabinets … so what’s the issue?

Her two sons, Samuel Dillard and Israel Dillard, are one and three years old. In other words, she’s being slammed for child-proofing …

… later than people think she should have!

“A long over due project!” Jill writes.

“Since Samuel has been walking, he keeps getting into the kitchen cabinets! Finally getting the cabinet locks put on! #writeitdowntocrossitoff.”

People who follow her on Instagram routinely criticize Jill Duggar’s parenting, and to be fair, some of her decisions are a bit questionable.

This, though? Fans (we use the term loosely) seem to be reaching a bit if they’re ripping on Silly Jilly’s supposedly overdue precaution. 

Others took the opportunity to mock Derick Dillard, her oft-maligned and disgraced husband who was fired from Counting On.

Some choice comments in that vein:

“Yes they (well she was, her lazy ass husband does nothing but spew hate) were very busy creating horrid recipes!”

“Good old Derick couldn’t do it because he is as useless as the letter G in Lasagne. I should really get around to that.”

Hey, Derick’s going to law school now, people. Everybody just take a deep breath and leave this upstanding citizen alone!

All kidding aside, some supporters of Jill weighed in with more positive feedback. One of them even felt a little inspired:

“We’ve had the child proofing stuff for 2 months and my husband hasn’t done it. So maybe it’s time I do it myself!!”

“Thats so cool,” another said. “With Jessa it took her and Jinger to do it. Are you both going to see Jinger and her baby?”

“Jill looks like a loving, caring woman. I am usually good and judging people just by looking into their eyes,” another fan said.

“So to the negative people, find something to do! You are not Jill’s friend you’re just a fan. You’re not an admin on her page!”

“You’ve such an over inflated sense of the worth of your own opinions. Tell us, has Jill ever posted something you haven’t commented on?”

Well, that’s just way too logical for the Internet.

In addition to getting dragged for her parenting, Jill also revealed that she was listening to music during her DIY chores.

There were some strong opinions there, too.

“Listening to some praise music on my fave [90.9 KLRC] app,” Dillard included in her caption to the photo at the top of this article.

“I was under the impression that music with a beat, which Hillsong undoubtedly has, was not permitted by Jim Bob,” one fan commented.

Others blasted her because Hillsong’s message doesn’t mesh with her fundamentalist lifestyle … others still just blasted her faith.

At the end of the day, the Duggars are human.

There’s plenty to criticize, and we’ve been there. But to a point we also need to agree to disagree or just let folks live a little.

Is Jill endangering her kids’ lives here? Really?

Or is she actually doing something that, by definition, is designed to do the EXACT OPPOSITE and keep the little ones safer?

When we’re harping on someone child-proofing her kitchen just because it took her longer than it conceivably could have?

Might be time to rethink your own life. Or at least take a look at some of Jill’s mom’s far more questionable practices (above).

Seriously, some dubious stuff in here.


Leah Messer Flaunts Relationship With Scandalous New Boyfriend on Instagram!

Leah Messer’s love life is a subject of constant fascination among Teen Mom 2 fans.

For a while there it looked as though Leah would get back together with Jeremy Calvert, but when that reconciliation fizzled out, Ms. Messer quickly rebounded.

These days, Leah is dating Jason Jordan, and while he seems to make her immensely happy, some fans have taken issue with the budding romance.

Over the weekend, Leah documented her latest couple’s getaway on Instagram, and some fans saw the pics as an opportunity to reiterate their complaints.

For one thing, Jason is much older than Leah (she’s 26; he’s 38).

It’s not the kind of cradle-robbery that makes you want to alert the authorities, but it’s enough of an age gap to raise a few eyebrows.

Especially since despite the fact that he’s pushing 40, Jason still seems to have quite a bit of growing up to do.

Naturally, once word of the relationship went public, fans started doing their research and dug up everything they could about Jason.

The most interesting thing they unearthed was a series of YouTube videos in which Jason played a character named West Virginia Meth Man.

Now, as far as we know, Jason never dabbled in meth himself.

And it appears he was just poking fun at some of the more, um … colorful residents of his home state.

Still many found the skits to be in poor taste, particularly one video in which Jason (as Meth Man) commented on the Ray Rice domestic abuse scandal.

“Just want to make a little comment about Ray Rice,” quoth Meth Man.

“Think he can go around punching women in the mouth, knocking them out cold. When I was high on meth one time I did that and nobody got mad. They just expect it out of me!”

Now, that’s obviously not the most tasteful joke, but anyone accusing Jason of condoning violence against women would be willfully misrepresenting the bit.

Should he have just refrained from joking about domestic violence at all? Probably?

But the crux of the gag is that only the most repugnant individuals — your Ray Rices and your Meth Mans — would engage in such behavior.

To be clear, the Meth Man routine isn’t particularly funny, and Leah is probably overjoyed by the fact that her boyfriend has retired the character.

But a few seriously unfunny skits shouldn’t be a deal breaker — otherwise, Ariana Grande would have to dump Pete Davidson! Zing!

Garrett Yrigoyen: Really, I’m Sorry for That Instagram Scandal!

On Monday night’s season finale of The Bachelorette, Garrett Yrigoyen won over Becca Kufrin.

Following an emotional two hours that saw Blake Horstmann break into tears and Becca nearly breakdown from having to make a decision, Yrigoyen was selected as this edition’s champion and he responded in the most appropriate way possible…

… by getting down on one knee and asking for Kufrin’s hand in marriage!

But just because Garrett knows one thing:

He still has to win over Bachelorette Nation.

The controversial contestant may have proven his decency to Becca over the course of his run on the series, but many viewers still think of Yrigoyen NOT as someone romantic and well-meaning.

But as someone who Liked a number of offense and inappropriate social media messages many months ago.

Back in late May, it came out that Garrett seemingly approved of Instagram posts that were anti-immigrant, anti-feminism and anti-LGBT rights.

He issued an apology shortly after this troubling scandal broke, telling critics:

“I am sorry to those who I offended and I also take full responsibility…

“I am not perfect, and I will never be anywhere close, but now I will always be more informed and aware of what I am liking and supporting, not just on Instagram, but in life.”

Fast forward all this time later and Garrett’s Likes are back in the news because he is back in the news, as the brand new fiance of Becca Kufrin.

He’s therefore being prompted to address his views on minorities and those who have a different sexual orientation.

Without getting into these kinds of specifics, the Season 14 winner simply says in the latest issue of People Magazine:

“It was tough. I didn’t mean to offend anyone.

He also tries to make it clear that the tap of one button on his computer or his phone does not sum up his world view when it comes to these societal topics:

“Just because I Liked it, doesn’t necessarily mean that I supported it.

“I was raised in a very open-minded family that was accepting to everybody. We’re very non-judgmental. I’m genuinely sincere.”

Becca asked viewers this spring to remain “open-minded” about Garrett, likely because she was already engaged to him at the time.

Now, though, Garrett says this idea of being as open and as candid with each other is exactly why their relationship works.

“We started a foundation of being honest and open and transparent,” he tells People, adding:

“Anything that’s come about, or just dealing with anything, that’s how we address it: head on. It makes our relationship so much stronger, and we continue to grow together.”

That all sounds well and good — but, as you might expect, quite a few fans think Becca has made a mistake.

garrett reaction

Tweeted one disgruntled Bachelorette fans, not even bothering to make a quip or a snarky remark:

Reminder: A man who joked about throwing immigrant children over trumps wall is about to win  #TheBachelorette and some of these children will likely never be reunited with their families.

@thebkoof choosing him is her being complicit and taking the easy and privileged way out.

If it makes this individual feel any better, Becca will likely NOT end up with Garrett, just based on the history of Bachelor and Bachelorette couples.

Or do you think these two crazy kids can buck that tradition?

Rich The Kid Posts Cryptic Instagram Message, Sparks Suicide Concerns

Music fans around the country are suddenly very worried about Rich The Kid.

Early Tuesday morning, the popular rapper deleted all of his Instagram messages and photos, save for one.

This would have been a troubling and confusing enough move on its own, even before followers clicked on his account and spotted the single remaining meme.

It reads:

R.i.P. Rich the Kid 1992-2018.

Ummm… what? Why? Could this have been a cry for help? Or, even worse, a suicide note?

Supporters were left even more concerned upon reading the caption alongside this image, as Rich The Kid wrote simply:

Thank u all my fans & family for everything.


“HE WAS MY FAVORITE ARTIST,” wrote _.papirhch_21, thinking Rich The Kid was now dead.

And this person wasn’t the only follower whose mind went straight to death upon seeing that Rich The Kid went ahead and wished himself eternal peace.

Just three days before his cryptic post, a video made by the rapper, where he blasted his label, 300 Entertainment, went viral.

It gave fans a reason to think he was fed up with at least one aspect of his life.

“Yo, f-ck 300 ENT, ya’ll suck,” he began, prior to going off on a tangent about wanting out of his deal with the label.

“Listen, you gotta let me out of this contract. I don’t want to be with ya’ll no f-cking more. I told ya’ll … giving this money back. I don’t want to be with ya’ll label no more.

“Ya’ll suck, ya’ll is trash. Listen, young, independent artists, do not sign with 300 ENT.

“They’re the worst, worst label, ever… Lame ass sh-t.”

At the end of the day, however, Rich The Kid is alive.

We’re pretty darn sure about that, at least.

Sources have said, as many fans have speculated, that he is simply altering his image. Perhaps even changing his name.

The artist is leaving his music persona behind and that’s what he is mourning in this mysterious Instagram meme.

Tweeted someone in the jnow:



So it sounds like everyone can take a deep breath.

Much like IHOP accomplished when it freaked everyone out about a change to burgers, Rich The Kid has accomplished his goal here:

He has grabbed many headlines and become a viral sensation, all while remaining alive and seemingly well.

Talk about a win-win situation!


Kylie Jenner Flaunts Post-Baby Curves on Instagram: It’s Good to Be 20 and Rich!

It’s been less than six months since Kylie Jenner welcomed her first child, but to look at the soon-to-be billionaire’s Instagram pics (or bank balance), you would think she spent all that time away from the spotlight working out and stacking funds.

Sure, being a single mom is never easy … but an army personal trainers and a net worth in high nine-figure range probably helps to ease the burden just a bit.

As you can see, Kylie sprang right back to peak physical condition after giving birth to baby Stormi.

We can see how her progress might be inspirational for some folks in need of a fitness goal.

But we can also see how it would be equally depressing for others.

The situation brings to mind the recent debate over whether or not Kylie is a “self-made” billionaire.

The question tore the internet in twain, not unlike the Yanny/Laurel conflict that preceded it, but in the end, no satisfactory conclusion was reached.

Like pretty much everything else on the planet, Kylie’s scenario is complicated and full of nuance.

Yes, she was born into a life of unimaginable privilege and influence, and when it comes to everything from starting a business to getting back in shape, she has a number of advantages that most of us could only dream of.

But, that doesn’t mean she doesn’t work hard.

And it certainly doesn’t mean that she deserves no credit or praise for her success.

Kylie was born with a major leg up in the world, it’s true.

But her efforts to improve upon her already lofty position are still impressive.

Maybe there’s a lesson to be learned in all of this.

No matter what your circumstances, the best thing you can aspire to is to try to and improve upon them even slightly, and your only competitor should be your past self.

Or maybe we’ve just devoted entirely too much thought to Kylie Jenner’s 40 bajillionth selfie.

Either way, homegirl is crushing it these days.

Of course, when we were 20, we spent most of our time showing fake IDs to 7-11 clerks, so pretty much anyone her age who’s doing anything productive deserves a shout-out in our eyes.


Selena Gomez Obliterates Instagram Record Once Held by Beyonce

Selena Gomez turned 26 over the weekend, and the photos from her birthday bash were dazzling.

The pics were so good, in fact, that the Instagram “likes” poured in with dizzying alacrity. 

Selena’s birthday post got so much love so quickly that it absolutely destroyed the previous record … which had belonged to Beyonce herself.

While Hailey Baldwin enjoys Justin Bieber, for better or for worse, Selena Gomez is living her best life. It’s what she deserves.

Remember how Beyonce broke the internet with her twin reveal photo?

That pic received a staggering 7.8 million in only 12 hours.

The pregnancy reveal pic that preceded it received 6.4 million within the first few hours. Beyonce is a powerhouse, there’s no question.

But when the battleground is Instagram, Selena has no equal.

It took Selena’s birthday party post only 13 minutes to reach 1 million likes.

(The number of likes is currently near 9 million and will likely grow by the time that you even finish reading this sentence)

That’s no real surprise.

Selena Gomez has been the reigning champion when it comes to Instagram followers for some time. She is a social media titan and the one to beat.

Even those who come close — like Ariana Grande, Christiano Ronaldo, and Beyonce — can’t quite surpass her follower count.

Not yet, anyway.

Selena Gomez 26 Birthday Photo Collage Pic

Selena is also paid more for Instagram ads.

We all know that Instagram follower counts matter for more than just bragging rights and branding.

Celebrities, no matter how wealthy, can make a small fortune with a few normal photos of themselves, promoting one product or another.

Selena Gomez apparently makes a whopping $ 800,000 per Instagram endorsement. That means that she takes a photo wearing or holding a brand and makes more than three quarters of a million dollars.

Beyonce makes $ 700,000 per photo. Of course, price is based upon more than just follower counts. It also has a lot to do with things like social media engagement.

When it comes to Instagram ad prices, nobody beats out Kylie Jenner — who maks rakes in $ 1 million per pic.

It’s easy to frame this conversation as a competition.

A competition between Selena and Kylie over who makes the most per Instagram ad.

A competition between Beyonce and Selena over who has the most followers, or who got the most likes the fastest.

Instead, let’s keep this in perspective. This was a broken record. One day, perhaps very soon, someone else will get a million likes even faster than Selena.

Social media is fueled by the people on it, and there are more people every single day who sign up for Instagram and click that like button.

So, again, it’s not a competition. Though, if the race to a million likes were a competition … Selena is the current reigning champion.

Selena’s 26 birthday is a big deal.

Not because 26 is a huge milestone. It isn’t. Every birthday after 21 is a grim reminder that we all grow less socially relevant with each passing day as our bodies begin to fail and crumble beneath the weight of time.

No, this birthday is a huge deal because … there were genuine doubts that she would make it this far.

She has been battling Lupus for years. Just a little over a year ago, Selena was rushed to the hospital with kidney failure.

Had it not been for a life-saving kidney transplant, it’s unclear if Selena would still be among the living.

And even now, she continues to struggle with Lupus. Selena’s birthday is worth celebrating for that alone.


Khloe Kardashian Hurls Insensitive Slurs on Instagram, Gets Schooled By Fans

Well, let no one say that Khloe Kardashian isn’t big enough to admit when she’s made a mistake.

Of course, her latest blunder is the sort of mistake that Khloe really shouldn’t be making in 2018 …

Over the weekend, Khloe posted an Instagram story and quickly caught a lot of flak for using some offensive language.

The short video clip shows Khloe helping her sister Kourtney configure her smartphone before her workout.

“Yes, you can, you f-cking r-tard,” Kourtney was heard saying off-camera.

“Are you f-cking r-tarded?” Khloe replied.

Yes, Kourtney and Khloe both casually tossed out slurs, but since the clip was posted to Khloe’s Insgaram, the majority of the criticism was directed at her.

Khloe quickly deleted the story, but not before many fans took note of the offensive faux pas.

One fan went straight to Twitter to call Khloe out directly.

“I was watching your livestream on Instagram until you said the “r” word,” the follower wrote.

“You should pay more attention to your word choices especially since you have a huge following&don’t know who you could be offending.”

The fan concluded the tweet with a poignant reminder that as a new mom, Khloe should demonsgtrate greater sensitivity.

“If True had a disability you would use a different word,” she tweeted.

Thankfully, Khloe was quick to respond and fully agreed with the fan’s assessmemt.

“Ugh I hate that word! Why did I even say that?” she wrote.

“You are a million percent right and I actually greatly dislike when people use that word! I will do better! I am sorry! much love today.”

Yes, Khloe messed up pretty bad, but her apology is basically a master class in how to express remorse without making excuses.

She simply admitted that she was wrong and promised to try and do better in the future.

Of course, we probably shouldn’t be surprised that she’s so skilled in this regard.

Khloe has been hearing so many apologies lately that we suppose it makes sense she’s gotten so good at delivering them herself.


Pete Davidson Deletes Instagram Page. But Why?!?

It is all over for Pete Davidson.

His presence on Instagram, that is.

But also his relationship with Ariana Grande? That’s the major question here, folks.

On Monday, fans took note of Davidson taking an axe to his entire Instagram page — and doing so on the same day that Grande’s ex-fiance, Mac Miller, commented on the singer’s romance with the comedian.

“I was in love with somebody. We were together for two years. We worked through good times, bad times, stress and everything else. And then it came to an end and we both moved on,” Miller said in an interview, adding:

“It’s all positive energy. I am happy for her and [the fact that she’s] moving forward with her life, just as I’m sure she is with me.”

So… why would this prompt Davison to do away with his social media presence?

Does this mean he and Grande really are about to break up?

Not necessarily.

The move also came just hours after Davidson got into it with a few online trolls.

On Sunday, Davidson shared a note on Grande’s recent Instagram post about the artist’s late grandfather in honor of the anniversary of his passing, writing “omg what a cutie.”

Some fans interpreted this remark as one directed at Grande, thinking it was wildly inappropriate of Davidson to comment on his lover’s looks, considering the basis of the photo.

But Davidson grew quickly irritated at anyone making this claim.

“Are you guys all insane?” he wrote to these critics, adding:

“I was talking about how cute her grandpa is. What’s wrong with that? You guys will really look for anything to attack people. It’s sad.”

pd insta

As a result of this frustrating exchange and result, it’s very possible that Davidson deleted his Instagram page because he simply didn’t want to deal with idiots any longer.

It’s very possible he and Grande are happier than ever and really may get married in the near future.

The thing is… Davidson made this decision shortly after Grande Tweeted something cryptic:

“The energy u put out is exactly what u get back, please create a beautiful life for yourselves.”

Could this have been directed at the aforementioned trolls? Yes.

Could it also have been directed at Davidson? Yes.

This is the price Ariana and Pete are going to need to pay until they’re together for a very long time.

That’s what happens when you get engaged after about a month of dating; questions arise quickly and easily regarding the stability of your relationship.

Recently, for example, Grande had to defend her choice to include the song “Pete” on her upcoming album “Sweetener.”

“He’s my fiancé. This is my album. I’m an honest and emotional artist and human being and if my openness in my work isn’t for you, that’s OK,” she wrote to one fan, concluding:

“I won’t be offended. Still wishing y’all all the love in the world.”

But do Ariana and Pete have real, true, long-lasting love for each other?

That’s the big question.
