Jessa Duggar: SLAMMED For Surprising Photo of Son Henry!

Considering just about everything she posts online results in some seriously virulent mom-shaming, it’s amazing that Jessa Duggar hasn’t just deleted her Instagram account.

But in defiance of the haters, Jessa continues to post regular updates on her life as a stay-at-home mom of two boys.

And fans continue to love her for it.

Yes, Jessa is roasted for her “bad parenting” on an almost-daily basis, but she also receives a good deal of praise from fans who are enamored with her approach to child-rearing.

Generally speaking, the positive far outweighs the negative in Jessa’s comments sections.

But if she’s anything like most social media users, Jessa likely finds herself dwelling on the bad much more than she celebrates the good.

Still, she soldiers on, and continues to post pics that she must know are certain to draw criticism.

The image above certainly seems innocent enough, and it quickly racked up more than 70,000 likes.

“Henry on the weekend,” Jessa captioned the pic, along with a laughing emoji.

As usual, most of the comments consisted of gushing commentary on the cuteness of Jessa’s kids.

But as always, a handful of haters felt the need to rain on her parade.

“I thought electronics for kids were a no no,” commented one follower.

“Quick, take the cellphone away before he gets hooked,” wrote another.

And it wasn’t just concerns about Henry enjoying too much screen time.

Others complained about his appearance, accusing Jessa of photographing her son in an unkempt state.

Fortunately, Mrs. Seewald didn’t need to confront the critics herself.

She has an army of loyal supporters for that:

“And cue all the mommy-shaming,” remarked one fan.

“His hair isn’t brushed, he’s not dressed, playing on a phone or tablet isn’t interaction or the type of interaction a baby needs…blah, blah, blah.”

“People please! If you have nothing nice to say, say nothing! Why do ppl have to be so Ugly!” commented another.

Of course, since the vast majority of comments were positive, the army of Jessa defenders looks sort of silly here.

As far as we can tell, there’s a group of people who wait for the negative comments to appear just so they can court Jessa’s favor by refuting them.

In a way, they’re just as weird as the people who compulsively complain about her parenting.

It’s a photo of a toddler, folks.

Appreciate the adorableness and move on.


Jill Duggar Bribes Son With Candy, Gets Slammed By Critics

Not a week goes by without Jill Duggar getting slammed for her parenting methods by people who seem to detest her, yet continue to follow her on social media.

It's a curious phenomenon made even more curious by the fact that Jill gets roasted even when she's demonstrating top-notch parenting skills.

Case in point, Jill is homeschooling her kids, and it seems that even in summer (and even though her eldest is only 3) she remains committed to teaching them the basics at a young age.

And she's not just winging it or relying on her own maternal instincts.

As evidenced by the video above, Jill has done her research.

She admits she's no expert, but says she'd like to share her experiences with a handful of educational tools for the benefit of other parents who might be homeschooling their kids.

And naturally, this led to Jill being roasted so hard the Duggars opted to disable comments on her latest YouTube video.

"I'm no professional at all but this is just what we've enjoyed and Israel loves school right now, so we're trying to just keep him busy with that," Jill said in the clip that apparently left some fans in a seething rage. 

"And it's fun," she added.

Seems innocent enough, but fans went off on Jill for everything from keeping her child out of school to using candy as an incentive.

Look, we know for some people the Duggars can do no right and their first instinct when they see any member of the family is to start hurling criticism.

It's understandable, but it's still dumb as hell.

Josh Duggar is a molester and Jim Bob and Michelle might be cult leaders, it's true.

But Jill and her her sisters are victims in this case, and even when we side-eye their behavior (whihc is very often), we try to keep that in mind.

At best, the Duggar kids are sheltered, and at worst, their traumatized.

Something to keep in mind next time you feel like raking one of them over the coals for giving their kids candy.

Jinger Duggar SLAMMED By Fans For Endangering Unborn Child!

While we don’t know her exact due date, we do know that Jinger Duggar will soon give birth to her first child.

Early in her pregnancy, Jinger revealed that she was expecting to deliver in early July. 

So now that Independence Day has come and gone, it comes as no surprise that fans are intently watching her social media pages for indications that Jinger has gone into labor.

Despite rumors to the contrary, it seems that Jinger is still pregnant.

Which is why some fans are upset to see that her hair color has changed slightly.

As you may know, there’s some debate as to whether or not it’s safe for pregnant women to color their hair.

It seems to be one of those arguments in which junk science and urban legends reign supreme, which is why many of Jinger’s Instagram followers saw fit to lecture her in the comments section of her latest Instagram photo.

“How can you safely dye hair while pregnant?” wrote one person.

“I guess I’ve always heard the dangers of the chemicals are an absolute no during pregnancy,” another remarked.

Some fans took a subtler route, confessing to ignorance on the matter, then promptly throwing shade:

“Love your hair Jinger! I wasn’t allowed to color mine when I was pregnant,” remarked one such follower.

“I was told it could harm the baby. Things must have changed since then.”

Others defended Jinger and pointed out that there’s no evidence that mothers can harm fetuses by coloring their hair.

“I’m a licensed cosmetologist and coloring is fine,” countered one person. 

“We do recommend holding off the bleach till done with pregnancy, but it’s really to each his own!”

Another wrote, “The colored parts in her hair don’t reach to the roots, so I’m pretty sure there’s no problem with it.”

Generally, when you’re looking for authoritative answers on a medical question, it’s best to look somewhere other than the comments on an Instagram post, and according to the American Pregnancy Association’s website, it’s perfectly safe for expectant moms to dye their hair:

“Although fairly limited, most research indicates the chemicals found in both semi-permanent and permanent dyes are not highly toxic and are safe to use during pregnancy,” the site reads.

“In addition, only small amounts of hair dye may be absorbed by the skin, leaving little that would be able to reach the fetus. As such, this small amount is not considered harmful to the fetus.”

So we guess Jinger is in the clear on this one.

But don’t expect her to take to IG and defend herself against the haters.

For one thing, that would go against Duggar protocol.

Aside from the family firebrand Derick Dillard, no one in the extended Duggar clan engages with online trolls.

And now that Derick has been fired by TLC, you can bet that Jim Bob is more adamant than other about maintaining a wholesome image on. social media.

On top of all that, Jinger has more serious concerns on her mind these days.

She’s reportedly in nesting mode these days, and she’ll soon be the first Duggar woman of her generation to welcome a child outside the state of Arkansas.

It’s a lot of pressure — and we say if Jinger wants to treat herself to some highlights, we should all just ease off and let the woman live!

Meghan Markle: Who Just Slammed Her as “Common?!?”

You can refer to members of The Royal Family as many things.

Spoiled, perhaps. Out of touch, maybe. Old fashioned, almost definitely.

But there’s one insult that rises above the rest.

There’s one word swipe you can take that will serve as a legitimate burn, something that will cause the Queen to look up from her Cream of Wheat and give you a true stink eye.

And a friend of Prince Charles just used this term to describe Meghan Markle’s loved ones.

Speaking to The Daily Mail, Nicky Haslam – was born to one of Queen Victoria’s goddaughters, went to school with Prince Charles and socialized with Princess Diana – took aim at Markle’s family and bashed them as “frightfully common.”

Yes, common.

This may sound relatively harmless and totally innocent, but think about it for a moment.

Is there anything worse you can say about someone associated with the Royal Family than referring to him or her as a “common” person?

We really don’t think so.

Meghan, of course, married Prince Harry on May 19.

Of all the details surrounding these monumental event, two things stood out, both of which Haslam had an opinion on.

First, Thomas Markle did not attend her daughter’s wedding; partly due to health problems and partly due to embarrassment over a paparazzi photo scandal in which he received money in exchange for a few not-exactly-candid poses.

Markle was crushed by her dad’s absence.

But Haslam was grateful he didn’t show up for the big day.

“It would have been awful if that huge lump had been there,” he told the aforementioned British newspaper.

The second thing to really note about this Royal Wedding was, naturally, Markle’s wedding dress.

What would it look like, folks wondered prior to the nuptials? Who would design it?

For the most part, reviews for the reviews of the Givenchy gown were positive in the hours and days after the ceremony, but Haslma has no idea why.

“I didn’t very much like her dress,” he says here. “It didn’t fit, among other things. It should have been made of thinner stuff, it seemed to be made of concrete.”

(Pop singer Katy Perry, we might as well add, also slammed Meghan’s dress, saying “I would have done one more fitting.”)

Nicky Haslam clearly sucks and isn’t really worth spending too much time on.

But sources tell Us Weekly that those even closer to the Royal Family are frustrated by Markle; or, to be more specific, frustrated by Marke’s father and the interviews he continues to give.

“Thomas is walking a fine line,” a source tells this tabloid. “This blabbing needs to stop if he wants to maintain any relationship with Harry and Meghan.”

Late last month, Thomas actually hurled some shade at Queen Elizabeth, wondering why President Trump has had a chance to meet her, but he has not.

“If the Queen is willing to meet our arrogant, ignorant, and insensitive president, she has no excuse not to meet me,” Thomas told TMZ, adding:

“I’m nowhere near as bad.”

On that point, we’re guessing even Haslam would agree.


Fox News SLAMMED by Fox Employees Over Pro-Trump Propaganda

The Trump Administration keeps on churning out scandals, and the news media keeps on reporting them to a horrified public.

Fox News, however, has been doubling down on its unwavering support for Trump.

Creators of some of the Fox television network’s most successful scripted shows have had enough, and are voicing their outrage.

Recently, one of Fox News’ most outlandish personalities, Tucker Carlson, told his viewers to simply believe the opposite of whatever other news sources tell them.

Carlson has voiced white supremacist conspiracy theories and other abhorrent material in the past, but this instruction crossed a line with Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane.

On Twitter, MacFarlane characterized Carlson’s segment: “In other words, don’t think critically, don’t consult multiple news sources, and in general, don’t use your brain. Just blindly obey Fox News.”

That about sums it up.

“This is fringe s–t,” MacFarlane tweeted, referring to Carlson’s clip. “And it’s business like this that makes me embarrassed to work for this company.”

He doesn’t directly work for Fox News, but … close enough.

We’ll explain in a moment.

Modern Family creator Steve Levitan chimed in.

“Let me officially join Seth MacFarlane,” Levitan tweeted. “In saying I’m disgusted to work at a company that has anything whatsoever to do with @FoxNews.”

It sounds like these sentiments had been building up for months or even years.

“This bulls–t is the opposite of what #ModernFamily stands for,” Levitan added.

He does intend to see this series through to the end, but he suggested that he might not choose to continue working with the network after that.

Time will tell.

Tucker Carlson

Paul Feig, a producer, has similar sentiments.

“I have made two films for 20th Century Fox and love the people in the movie and TV divisions,” Feig tweets.

Feig continues: “But I too cannot condone the support their news division promotes toward the immoral and abusive policies and actions taken by this current administration toward immigrant children.”

Filmaker Judd Apatow makes it clear that, while he knows that many people need to keep their jobs, he believes that those who can should choose to avoid working for Fox in any capacity.

“We all choose who to work with,” Apatow writes. “I understand why that is easier for some than others but many powerful people are powerful enough to speak up to their bosses at a moment like this.”

The whole world is watching. And so is history.

And so, by the way, are advertisers. Many of whom are reportedly growing uneasy with not only Fox News, but other Fox properties.

We know that entangled corporate holdings can be a little complicated and that the average person probably doesn’t think about them all that much.

(Aside from the occassional line of “Nestle is monopolizing vital water resources like they’re James Bond villains? Don’t they make chocolate?”)

Fox News, 20th Century Fox, and everything within the Fox Entertainment Group is owned and controlled by 21st Century Fox.

(So while MacFarlane and Levitan don’t work for Fox News, they work for the same people … and clearly, that association has gotten to them)

21st Century Fox is owned and chaired by Rupert Murdoch.

During the mid-1990s, Murdoch created Fox News. He hired Roger Ailes, a former Republican Party media consultant, to run it.

Ah, the infamous Fox News.

The self-described news network has been broadly criticized for a perceived conservative bias.

During the Presidencies of George W. Bush and Donald Trump, the network has been criticized by many as functioning as state-run television.

During the Obama administration, in contrast, the network aired segments in which various mouthpieces criticized President Obama’s choice in mustard and the color of his suit.

Now, various Trump administration scandals seem to get little to no mention on Fox News while every other network covers them.

Many blame Fox for working to warp the views that older Americans hold about the world and the country.

Tucker Carlson telling his viewers — most of whom are white, conservative, and noteably old — to simply disregard other news sources is deeply toxic, even for Fox News.


Derick Dillard Slammed on Father’s Day: You’re the Worst Kind of Dad!

It’s only Monday, but Jill Duggar is already having quite a week on social media.

First, Jill wore a swimsuit in a photo that was posted on her Instagram page.

In order to appreciate why that’s a big deal, you have to understand that Duggar swimwear usually looks like something a silent film star named Myrtle would rock circa 1923.

And here’s Jill wearing a normal 21st-century one-piece like it’s not big deal. Bold, we say!

So that was a rare win for Jill, whose social media posts are usually just an embarrassment for everyone involved.

Unfortunately, the goodwill Jill earned by passive-aggressively standing up to her domineering dad was squandered when she celebrated Father’s Day by heaping praise on her controversial husband, Derick Dillard

As you may know, Derick holds views that are so controversial that they’ve brought him into conflict with even the most conservative (read: bigoted) Duggar fans.

Derick is one of those Trump supporters who stands by the president even when his policies fly in the face of the Christian values Dillard claims to hold so dear.

So fans took issue when Jill posted the awkward screenshot above, along with a link to a lengthy paean to Derick’s compassionate and godliness:

“Thank you for not always taking the easy path, but following God’s leading in our lives,” Jill wrote on the Dillards’ personal website.

“Thank you for being our protector, both physically and spiritually, as you seek God’s will during your daily devotion time,” she added.

“I see you investing in our children, just like your dad did with you and [Derick’s brother] Dan and it melts my heart!

“He taught you what it means to be a Godly man, and I see you reading the Bible and teaching our children how to pray,” Jill concluded.

Fans were quick to take issue with those sentiments, with many pointing out that Derick has expressed support for the policy of separating children from their families at the US border.

“Just curious why this has to be made public. Can’t you express your gratitude personally?” wrote one follower, adding:

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

Another stated simply, “Any man can be a father but not every man is a dad.”

To her credit, Jill has distanced herself from some of Derick’s most deplorable views, but many fans (and former fans) believe that’s not nearly enough.

“To disagree doesn’t = hate, or judgement … Love doesn’t always = approval,” she once wrote on Instagram, seemingly in reference to Derick.

“Just because I disagree with my child on something doesn’t mean I hate him, and just because I love and forgive him doesn’t mean I approve of everything he does. You can be friends with, love and care for people you don’t agree with 100%.”

In a society that’s as patriarchal as the Duggars’, it took guts for Jill to even imply that she doesn’t always agree with her husband.

But it’s not hard to see why so many feel that she needs to be doing much, much more.

Jenelle Evans SLAMMED by Teen Mom 2 Fans: Is She Abusing Her Kids?!

If you watched Teen Mom 2 this week, then there's a good chance you're not too happy with Jenelle Evans and David Eason.

Well, that's probably the case if you watch Teen Mom 2 any week — Jenelle and David are always pretty awful — but stick with us here.

This week, the Easons took the kids on vacation, and things didn't go exactly as planned.

Lots of people thought that Jenelle and David mistreated their children, and there's just a whole lot of outrage right now about the whole thing.

Here, let's get into the details …

1. A Birthday Trip

Jenelle evans boyfriend david eason
In the episode, Jenelle and David took the kids on a nice family vacation for Jenelle’s birthday. They stayed in a cabin, did some outdoor activities, and for a while, it looked like everyone was having fun.

2. Not for Long …

Jenelle evans kissy face with david eason
But then things started falling apart. Jenelle and David both became very short with the kids, and honestly it looked like they were overwhelmed to be caring for them all by themselves for an extended period of time.

3. Poor Kaiser

Like, in one particularly sad scene, the family sat down for breakfast, but Kaiser said that he had to go to the bathroom. David refused to let him go, but he also told him that he’d be in big trouble if he had an accident. It was weird and uncomfortable, and poor little Kaiser just couldn’t win either way.

4. … But Why?

Jenelle evans just chills
When it was time for everyone to leave, Jenelle and David were both angry for no real reason. The kids weren’t really acting out, but they kept scolding them anyway, and they canceled their last activity because of their behavior, which again, wasn’t bad at all.

5. Easy, Killer

When they all got in the car, David tried to turn the cameras off — not a great sign. When he couldn’t figure it out, he settled for lashing out once again at the kids, telling them “We’re going home because you don’t know how to f—king act right.”

6. Come On, Easons

Jenelle evans smirks
Obviously it wasn’t the most disturbing scene we’ve ever seen on the show, but it’s really seemed to rub a lot of people the wrong way.
