Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard Saw The Incredibles 2 … Without Their Kids!

As you may already know Jill Duggar’s parenting decisions are often called into question.

Sometimes the criticism is warranted like when Jill inexplicably forces her young children to walk two miles for Chik-Fil-A.

Other times, however, it’s just haters being haters, such as when the internet decided Jill’s kids looked “sickly” and decided to roast her about it.

We’ll leave it up to you to decide which category the latest controversy falls into.

Even though Derick Dillard is unemployed and Jill seems to work as a midwife no more than a few times a year, these two somehow have disposable income.

And this week, they used that extra cash to take in the long-awaited sequel to the beloved animated Ayn Rand fantasy, The Incredibles.

The reviews and box office have both been spectacular, and it seems that The Incredibles 2 is fun for the whole family.

Which is why it’s a little weird that Jill and Derick decided to take in the flick without their two sons.

“Just dropped off the boys for their first overnight together away from us,” Jill captioned the above pic.

“Let the anniversary date begin! #incredibles2 #besthubbyever”

Yes, it’s Jill and Derick’s anniversary this week, and since they’re not allowed to drink or spend too much on fancy meals or engage in non-procreative sex, we suppose their celebratory options are pretty limited.

But as many fans pointed out, it’s weird to see an animated kids movie and leave your kids at home.

 “They WOULD see the Incredibles 2 on a date night WITHOUT the kids,” one fan pointed commented, according to In Touch Weekly.

Others were quick to defend the Dillards, pointing out that this is pretty minor as Duggar parenting controversies go.

 “Wow!” wrote one follower. “They are at the show watching the Incredibles 2 and people on here think that’s wrong?? Get a life people!”

Others pointed out that it would be standard Duggar practice for the parents to see the movie first before deciding if it’s appropriate for the kids.

That may seem ridiculous for a PG-rated film, but there is some cartoonish violence in The Incredibles 2 that could mess with extremely sheltered kids like the Dillards’.

Plus, as Twitter revels in reminding us, Mrs. Incredible is thick, y’all.

Jill Duggar Says Nice Things About Terrible Husband, Shares Rare Wedding Photo

It’s been a week of ups, downs, insults and compliments for Derick Dillard.

First, the homophobic ex-reality star was blasted by social media users on Father’s Day, considering he supports a President who advocates for tearing kids away from their parents at the border.

While wife Jill Duggar praised the dad of her two sons for being a staunch Christian, many Internet users pointed out the hypocrisy of someone who claims to hold these types of religions values…

… yet is also for the sort of cruel immigration policy espoused by Donald Trump.

Think of ALL the children being held in a detention center, separated from their parents. Is that loving? Is it Godly? NOPE!” screamed on critic online.

But we’re not here right now to wade into these kinds of controversial political waters.

We’re here to point out that Dillard is at the center of another special occasion today:

It’s the four-year anniversary of his wedding to Jill, who wed on June 21, 2014 in Springdale, Arkansas.

In honor of the milestone, Jill shared a rare photo from the day she and Derick exchanged vows (and first kissed, per Duggar courtship rules) and wrote a caption that reads as follows:

This man is my favorite! @derickdillard I’m blessed beyond measure to have you as my hubby! #4yearanniversary Ihope God gives us many more years here together! I wanna #growoldtogether.

She wasn’t done with the annoying hashtags, either, adding:

#besthubbyever, #bestpapaever, #manofmydreams, #imspoiled and #sograteful.

Of course, not everyone out there feels this way about Dillard.

He was slammed by his very own cousin recently for failing to hold up Christian values, following Derick’s ongoing tirade against the LGBT community.

If you’ll recall, Dillard was fired by TLC for constantly bashing transgender reality star Jazz Jennings last year.

We could spend a long time reciting the list of mean and close-minded things Dillard has said.

But we’d mostly just be repeating ourselves from past articles about him.

So, instead, on his anniversary, we’ll go back in time a bit and recite details from his wedding instead.

Based on a People Magazine article at the time, over 600 cupcakes, 3,000 chocolate-chip cookies and 3,000 root-beer floats were served at the reception for guests to enjoy.

More than 100 immediate family members were in attendance, as were guests from more than 30 states, Jim Bob Duggar told the publication back then.

Josh Duggar acted as emcee of the reception, pointing people to long folding tables filled with chocolate and vanilla cakes, as well as the tables with the wedding cake

This was before it came out that he’s a messed up individual who molested two of his sisters.

As for the first-ever spit-swap shared between the husband and wife on their big day?

“It was worth the wait,” Jill told the magazine.

How very sweet.

Too bad we can’t say the same about her bigoted husband.

Jill Duggar Stuns Fans With Scandalous Swimsuit Pic!

These days, it’s not uncommon for Duggar children to rebel against the constraints of their ultra-strict upbringing.

In particular, Jim Bob’s offspring have been flouting the rules of the strict Duggar dress code by daring to wear pants — and now it seems Jill is raising the bar even further by showing off a little shoulder skin.

Jill posted the above photo on her Instagram page over the weekend with a caption reading:

“Nothing says summer like a relaxing family day at the pool! What do you enjoy doing with friends & family on summer days?”

We don’t know about you, but our answer is obviously “sit inside and devote far too much time and attention to Duggar Instagram posts.”

Anyway, you might not notice anything out of the ordinary about Jill’s attire here.

But if you’re a longtime fan of her family’s, then you’re probably aware that Duggar swimwear used to be much, much more conservative.

Like, imagine the leotard-like getups those old-timey mustachioed barbell guys used to sport in the ’20s.

Then throw a t-shirt on top, and you’ve got a pretty good idea of how Duggar women used to dress for the beach.

For the most part, fans were overjoyed that Jill is allowing herself (or being allowed by her husband) to dress like she’s going swimming, not scuba diving,

“Love the fact that Jill is wearing a swimsuit!!” commented one follower.

“Absolutely no judgment. Just a question. I think we’d love to hear your journey from skirts and wholesome wear swimsuits to pants and sleeveless suits,” wrote another fan.

The ultra-conservative swimwear that Jill and her sisters used to sport was not the result of personal choice, of course, but rather a consequence of their ultra-strict upbringing:

“The reason why we wear modest swimwear is we always want to be modest,” Jana once explained on Counting On.

“A lot of swimwear nowadays is exposing parts that shouldn’t be exposed.”

Of course, Jill is a Duggar, so it’s safe to assume she had an agenda in mind when she posted this pic.

But it probably had nothing to do wiith whipping fans into a frenzy, and everything to do with rumors that her children are “sickly” and pale and seldom play outside.

We’re guessing this pic is Jill’s way of putting those rumors to bed — and showing off a little upper arm while she’s at it!

Jill Duggar: Will She Leave Derick Dillard Because of His Political Views?

Like all of the women in her family, Jill Duggar was taught from a young age that there’s no higher calling than being a wife and mother.

However, Jill was also taught that her number one duty is to God, and now it seems that the 27-year-old may feel that her two greatest loyalties are in direct conflict with one another.

If you follow the Duggar clan closely, then by now, you’ve likely heard that Jill’s husband, Derick Dillard, was fired from the family’s reality show, Counting On, after launching a transphobic tirade on social media.

Shortly thereafter, Jill quit the show as a gesture of solidarity, but that doesn’t mean she shares all of Derick’s controversial views.

In fact, in recent weeks, Jill has begun distancing herself from Derick’s views in a number of subtle ways.

It all started when a handful of fans called Jill out for hypocrisy on Instagram.

In response to a post about Jill’s prayers for her children, several users commented that she should pray for her husband to be less bigoted and more tolerant.

Seemingly referring to Derick’s controversial comments, Jill replied:

“I have never said those actions were ok.”

Shortly thereafter, Jill took another stand against her husband’s views, this time in more subtle fashion.

Just one day after Derick expressed his enthusiasm for a border wall between the US and Mexico, Jill made it clear that she’s no fan of President Trump’s pet project.

Jill posted several photos of her Latina goddaughter and referred to herself as a “proud madrina” (Spanish for “godmother”) in a post that many interpreted as a sign that she doesn’t share her husband’s views on immigration.

Again, it wasn’t an out-and-out rebuttal of Derick’s views, but it was still a surprising display of independence from a woman who was raised to believe wives should be subservient to their husbands at all times.

And remarkably, Jill’s mini-rebellion didn’t end there.

Jill Duggar Meme

Last week, Jill posted the above meme on her Instagram page.

She captioned the image:

“This has so many applications to our lives! Let your voice be heard.”

On its own, the post seems to have little application to Jill’s marriage, but once again, fans noticed that the timing of the post may speak volumes.

The meme appeared on Jill’s page not long after Derick made comments about TV personality Nate Berkus that many considered homophobic.

Yes, even diehard Duggar fans were disgusted by Derick’s remarks about Berkus and his family.

So was this Jill’s way of saying that she’s standing up to the forces of evil?

If so, it’s a bit ironic that she’s choosing to make her voice heard in such low-key fashion, but fans haven’t given up hope.

Many believe Jill is planning to publicly speak out against Derick’s views.

Some even believe she’ll eventually leave her divisive husband.

That seems unlikely, given the Duggar family’s dim view of divorce, but it’s not hard to see why fans are beginning to believe that Jill is less submissive than her sisters when it comes to her marriage.

Jill Duggar: Dragged By Fans For Pretending Derick Dillard Has a Job!

Back in November of 2017, Derick Dillard was fired from his in-laws’ reality show, Counting On.

His wife, Jill Duggar, quit the show shortly thereafter as a gesture of solidarity.

For a time, the Dillards were without a source of income, which would be a problem for anyone, but was especially daunting in this case, as the couple is raising two young sons.

Recently, Jill launched a midwife service, but business has reportedly been slow, both due to concerns about her licensure and ongoing issues with her family’s reputation.

Meanwhile, Derick seems to be devoting most of his ample free time to spewing his political opinions on Twitter.

Naturally, fans and critics alike have been quick to encourage him to get a job, but it seems that’s the one issue that Derick has no interest in arguing about with strangers.

In fact, it seems he’ll do whatever it takes to avoid the subject of his lack of employment, so you can imagine our surprise when Jill addressed the issue for him:

This week, Jill posted the above photo, taken at her local polling place — and she raised quite a few eyebrows with the caption.

“We just voted! Teaching ‘em young the privilege of letting your voice be heard…and took both boys with me since Derick was at work. lol,” she captioned the pic.

On top of the usual comments about the Josh Duggar sex scandals and concerns over whether little Samuel is the right size for his car seat, lots of fans wanted to know exactly what sort of “work” Derick was engaged in.

Last we checked, the 29-year-old was unemployed and seemed to have no interest in changing that condition.

And as Jill’s followers were quick to point out, it’s not like D-Dill is the type to keep his accomplishments to himself.

“Does he work at Twitter?” joked one fan.

“‘Work’ and an actual job may be different things at the Dillard house,” quipped another.

“Haha. ‘Derick is at work.’ That cracks me up,” remarked a third.

Another dispensed with the humor and simply stated exactly what we’re all thinking:

“He doesn’t really work or hold a job,” the follower wrote.

“If he did, he would proudly be announcing his job all over the internet.”

That’s both tough but fair — in other words, the exact opposite of a bigoted coward like Derick.

Zing! We’ll be here all week, folks!

Jill Duggar Visits a Mosque for Ramadan, Gets Blasted by Fans: Show Some RESPECT!!

Jill Duggar is going above and beyond to avoid her husband!

Just kidding — though, given Derick Dillard's latest remarks about trans people, who would blame her?

No, Jill spent some time at a mosque for Ramadan, and fans took her to task for not covering her hair for the visit. Are they right?

Jill duggar in a mosque for ramadan

In the video that we've attached, Jill shows off her visit to a mosque.

"Okay where are we at?"

A hijabi woman beside her (who, we have to say, is in a wonderfully colorful outfit) answers, saying:

"We are at a mosque and we have Iraqi feast for Ramadan. We're glad to see you here!"

As you probably know, during the holy month of Ramadan, Muslims fast, abstaining from certain activities such as food during the daylight hours.

(People with health restrictions are exempted)

After night falls, however, there is a feast to break the fast. Jill's companion introduces her to some traditional Iraqi dishes.

Jill duggar ramadan 01

The video's caption reads:

"While Derick was with the men (guys and girls have separate sections), Jill enjoyed some Iraqi food with friends."

That's great and all, but a number of fans had major concerns about Jill's hair.

"You shouldn’t go into a mosque not covered out of respect. You also take off your shoes."

They're not suggesting that Jill don a hijab on a permanent basis, but merely adhere to a dress code. 

"She should have had her head covered in a mosque out of respect."

Many houses of worship have dress codes.

"That right there speaks volumes about her respect."

That said, we don't know if this particular mosque has this concern about guests.

Not all Muslims wear hijabs (or any other hair covering), and some mosques may not enforce a dress code for guests.

Jill duggar ramadan 02

There was plenty of addition commentary, including fears that Jill might be proselytizing under very inappropriate circumstances.

"I really hope you aren't trying to convert Muslims."

That probably wasn't the case, otherwise, Jill and Dercik would be begging fans for money like they do when they go on missionary trips.

"Of course it’s a PR stunt. Notice they only use these kind of posts when Derick has done something wrong. It absolutely can’t be taken seriously and it’s actually more offensive knowing it’s all an act."

A lot of people share the theory that this is an example of her trying to soften their image after Derick's repeated homophobic and transphobic rants.

"it’s damage control for her all of her husbands Twitter rants lol"

Others think that it has less to do with Derick and more to do with the couple's shared desire for attention.

"It’s all for attention to make themselves look better ! It’s all for show. They have one path only ! Have you not seen the hate he spews on his social media ??"

Jill duggar ramadan 03

Others, however, were full of compliments for Jill.

"Awesome that you love and honor others in this way."

They even defended her from some (fellow) fundamentalists who thought that Jill was consorting with "the enemy."

"People forget it is possible to show compassion without compromising your own convictions."

Others offered Jill kudos for attending the feast instead of just poting a few empty words.

"I will say, Jill put her money where her mouth is with this one and I think it’s great. The more barriers we break down the better."

True!

"People!!! It's between Jill & God what, where & why she was doing what she was. You don't have to agree with someone on religion, or anything for that matter, to show a little kindness & love."

Accurate.

"There are a lot of things between Islam and Christianity that are quite similar. The big difference is the role of Jesus Christ. And as followers of Jesus Christ, we know that we follow the true faith. But that doesn’t mean we should judge others. It’s not our place. Have a great and blessed day!"

Jesus is considered a holy man within Islam.

Jill duggar ramadan 04

Others took Jill's more conservative critics to task.

"Seriously? People are blasting OTHER Christians for joining in with our brothers and sisters of another Abrahamic faith? (Abrahamic faiths being Christianity, Islam, and Judaism)."

it's true. In fact, despite the academic differences, many have wondered if Judaism, Christianity, and Islam shouldn't be considered different branches of the same faith.

Muslims themselves appreciated the post.

"You are an amazing human being and I love that you are sharing Ramadan with us. Ramadan is a holy month full of love and charity. You are an amazing woman Jill, and as a Muslim American I love y’all & yalls show."

While many people's concerns over Jill's lack of hair-covering was probably genuine and came from a good place, it is important to not speak over people.

It doesn't sound like Jill did anything wrong … in this one, particular instance.

Shame Jill when she deserves it, but only when she deserves it.

Fans to Jill Duggar: You Can’t Love Trump AND Latinos!

Jill Duggar is in a tough spot.

She’s committed to both her dense husband, Derick Dillard, and the ultra-conservative values of her upbringing, but at the same time, she seems well aware that the core tenets of both often come into conflict with her compassionate tendencies and her belief in Christian charity.

Jill has attempted to live comfortably in both worlds by distancing herself from Derick’s comments, while simultaneously standing by her man.

She’s implied that she doesn’t share all of Derick’s views, but she also quit Counting On as a gesture of solidarity after he got fired from the show.

Unfortunately, it seems that Jill has struck a compromise that pleases no one.

Her more left-leaning fans remain unimpressed by her refusal to speak out against Derick more directly, while her conservative followers feel that Jill is undermining the beliefs she was raised with by suggesting she sometimes disagrees with her husband.

It’s a conflict that keeps resulting in tense debates in the comments of her Instagram page.

And Jill’s latest post has resulted in a full-blown battleground:

Jill posted the above photo yesterday, along with a caption reading:

“Congrats to my little Aivah on her kindergarten graduation!”

She added the hashtag “#proudmadrina,” and many fans pointed out that “madrina” is Spanish for godmother.

The photo comes on the heels of a series of a post in which Derick praised Donald Trump and joked about his eldest son helping to build “the Wall” along America’s southern border.

For obvious reasons, many of Jill’s followers were struck by the sharp contrast of the spouse’s recent social media activity.

And some went so far as to call Jill out for hypocrisy:

“You’re with Latinos but you want that wall to be built… y’all funny as f–k,” wrote one follower.

“Funny how Derick taught Izzy all about the Wall to keep people out, and here you are showcasing your ‘brown’ friends. Oh the hypocrisy,” commented another.

“That whole ‘I can’t be a bigot, cause my bffs neighbors, cousins nephew is gay and I have no problem with him,’ schtick,” remarked a third, adding:

“What mixed messages poor Israel must be getting. Racism at home and facades in public.”

Of course, Jill also found some support from those who agree with her family’s more conservative views:

“Typical liberal hypocrisy, intolerant of others who don’t share their beliefs,” wrote one follower.

“We ‘brown’ people have been in their lives for years now, no hypocrisy,” commented another.

“Everyone is entitled to their own opinions about everything. That’s what makes us all unique.”

Obviously, as is always the case with this sort of thing, nothing was resolved, and no one changed their mind.

And yet, the debate rages on.

We’d say Jill should just avoid posting about politics, but we’re pretty sure that’s what she’s trying to do.

Unfortunately for her, it’s 2018, and literally everything is political.

Jill Duggar Offers Prayers to Shooting Victims, Comes Under Enemy Fire

Jill Duggar is not a politican.

But many social media users think the reality star sounds far too much like one at the moment.

Allow us to explain…

Last Friday, tragedy struck an American school. Yet again.

A 17-year old named Dimitrios Pagourtzis – armed with a shotgun and .38-caliber handgun – opened fire at Santa Fe High School after pulling the fire alarm and forcing students out of their classrooms.

And into his hailof bullets.

ln total, Pagourtzis allegedly murdered 10 people and wounded 13 others.

He was arrested and charged with capital murder and aggravated assault on a public servant.

This marked the 22nd school shooting of 2018 and it came about two months after over a dozen students were killed in a similar incident in Parkland, Florida.

In response to this heinous event, Duggar posted the following image on Instagram and wrote the following words:

Prayers for those affected by the Santa Fe shooting yesterday. #neveragain.

santafe

Her heart was likely in the right place. No one is really disputing this.

But politicians and many others have beeb offering prayers for years now after murders such as this occur – and, let’s be honest, the murders keep happening.

Jill can use the hashtag “#neveragain” all she wants, but the likelihood of this happening again is VERY strong is the only thing people do in response is to pray.

And we aren’t the only ones saying this. To wit:

“Prayers mean nothing to dead children,” one person wrote as a comment to the above photo, while another added:

“Prayers won’t fix this!!! Your government can if they want… have prayers worked in the past?”

Jill and her husband, Derick Dillard, have garnered backlash in the past for some of their more conservative comments and critiques.

The latter is an unabashed Donald Trump supporter and has made it clear many times over the past several months that he doesn’t support the gay and/or lesbian lifestyle.

For example, he lit into TLC star Nate Berkus for being gay and for having a family this spring, writing:

“It’s sad how blatant the liberal agenda is, such that it both highlights and celebrates a lifestyle so degrading to children on public television as if it should be normal.”

The natural reply here, of course, would be for someone to wonder how much Derick and Jill can care about these same children when they don’t think any changes to national gun laws need to be enacted.

Wrote about Instagram critic of Jill’s over the weekend:

“Never again???? Really?? That’s your hashtag?? Obviously it WILL HAPPEN AGAIN, and again and again!!!! It’s time for your country to address gun control. It’s just sickening.”

It’s maybe worth comparing at this point what Jill is saying here to what Kelly Clarkson said as host of the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night.

“I’m a Texas girl and my home state has had so much heartbreak over this past year,” the singer said on stage, adding in emotion and anger:

Once again, y’all, we’re grieving more kids that have died for absolutely no reason at all…

Tonight they wanted me to say that obviously, we want to pray for all the victims and families. They also wanted me to do a moment of silence and I’m so sick of moments of silence. It’s not working, obviously.

Why don’t we stop moments of silence and do a moment of action? Why don’t we do a moment of change? Change what’s happening, because it’s horrible…

We are failing our children, we’re failing our communities. Let’s have a moment of action, let’s have a moment of change.

Watch this stirring speech below and decide:

Do you agree more with Jill’s take on this situation or with Clarkson’s call for action?

Derick Dillard: Degrading Jill Duggar in Birthday Tribute?!

These days, it seems that no matter what Derick Dillard does, he stirs up controversy.

We don’t mean to say that Derick is treated unfairly by fans.

Quite the opposite, in fact.

Der does his damnedest to stir the pot every chance he gets, and the majority of his social media followers let him off the hook simply because of the family he married into.

Of course, there’s a vocal minority who seem to take pleasure in calling Derick out every time he does something foolish like use his kid to make a political point.

And that’s how we wind up with daily D-Dill mini-scandals.

Today’s is pretty minor, but still serves as an excellent example of Derick’s ability to piss his followers off in increasingly subtle ways:

Thursday marked Jill Duggar’s 27th birthday.

Derick marked the occasion by posting the photo above alongside the following caption:

“Happy birthday to my wifey @jillmdillard! God has blessed me beyond measure to give me you as a wife and as a mother to our boys,” he wrote.

“I fall more in love with you every day! Love you baby!”

Seems innocent enough, right?

In fact, it’s hard to imagine how Derick’s birthday tribute could have possibly provoked outrage.

But if you’ve been following his recent string of controversies closely, you’ll know that some fans really don’t like it when Derick calls Jill “wifey.”

And as In Touch Weekly points out, some of these folks have been quick to express their displeasure on Derick’s Instagram page.

“Wifey is a derogatory term to some. May want to look that up,” wrote one such follower.

“Never say the word ‘wifey’ like that ever again,” commented another.

Needless to say, Derick has not addressed these concerns or removed the post because that’s just not how he rolls.

And in this case, he’s probably right to stand his ground.

Even if he knew damn well what he was doing when he busted out the “w” word.

Jill Duggar: Accused of Racism for THIS Video of Her Baby!

Jill Duggar is not going to make mom of the year, but is she also racist?

A number of fans have accused her of as much — or at least wondered if she might be — after she shared a video and made some odd and perhaps culturally insensitive remarks.

Check out the video below and decide for yourself.

Samuel dillard in his high chair

In the captions of the video that you can see below, Jill Duggar writes:

"Do we have a future Bollywood star in the family?!"

The video shows baby Samuel Dillard dancing to Bollywood music that is softly playing in the background.

And by dancing, we mean that he's wiggling back and forth. He's a baby, folks.

She is feeding him curry during the process, and writes:

"In this video, you can tell Samuel is enjoying his Indian food and music!"

Samuel dillard eats curry

The comments have since been flooded with debates about Derick's homophobia and transphobia and about accusations that the two neglect and/or abuse their children.

But before that upsetting discussion, fans discussed whether or not this specific video and the comments that Jill made were racist.

"Sounds pretty racist to me."

That line doesn't necessarily lay out an argument so much as state an opinion, but that's what comments are for, we guess.

Another commenter mentions that India is a "multi-ethnic, multi-religious, culturally rich country that is more than just Bollywood."

Imagine if someone in Uzbekistan wore a cowboy hat and ate, say, a Chicago style hotdog with all of those weird toppings as an "American food night." At the very least, that's not … super accurate.

"It’s not racist. The more you eat while your baby is in utero, the stronger possibility that your kid will enjoy spicy foods when older."

That is not a claim that we can confirm. It also seems to be a comment drifting away from the topic at hand — not all curry is spicy, folks.

Jill duggar hiding a bump

There are a number of misconceptions about racism floating around out there, and a big one is that being racist automatically means insulting another race or ethnicity.

Racism is complicated in a number of ways, and it's not fun to talk about.

But there are absolutely cases of racist statements where the speaker felt like they were giving a "compliment."

A white man who praises the qualities that he believes that East Asian women have as potential girlfriends and wives is not really complimenting them, he is objectifying and fetishizing Asian women based upon their race.

That is absolutely racism.

And if you've ever seen some dude dress in a sombrero and fake mustache to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, he might be totally well-meaning, but yeah, that's racist.

Jill duggar walks for chick fil a

So … is Jill Duggar being racist, here? We're sure that she doesn't intend to, but, as we mentioned, racism is not always about intentions.

As the commenters note, boiling down "India" to just Bollywood and curry is … inaccurate, at the very least.

But you don't exactly give a comprehensive lesson on geography and culture to a baby. Because, you know, it's a baby. 

Also, as fans are very well aware, Jill may not know that much about India and its culture.

She wasn't allowed to watch worldly television or movies as a child. If she had, she might have gotten ideas about freedom and making her own choices, and Jim Bob can't have that in his household.

Has she ever actually watched a Bollywood movie?

More to the point, does she know enough about India to realize that there's more to the country than a series of stereotypes?

Derick dillard with jill

Is Jill's comment culturally insensitive? Probably. But it's mostly just a cute video, as you are about to see.

And at least she isn't endangering her children this time.

Some even wonder if Jill may have deliberately stirred up this controversy in order to gain more attention for her video.

(Because yes, you had to jump through a series of links in order to access the video — she and Derick have to make money some way without begging fans for donations, we suppose)

Others don't think that Jill is that devious.

Watch the video for yourself and decide what you make of it.
