Grab the popcorn because Jeremy Vuolo is throwing some major shade! Er, according to several fans. The Counting On star took to Twitter to promote Monday’s season premiere, but there was one line, in particular, that came across pretty passive-aggressive.
“Jinger and I are so grateful to TLC for giving us the opportunity to share our lives with all of you! Tune in this Monday night — July 30th, 9/8C — for the new season of #CountingOn.”

“Some Dillard shade?” one reddit user wrote. Another agreed writing, “This has to be shade,” and a third chimed in, “Oh yeah— Jeremy probably thinks Derick is absolutely ridiculous.” A fourth said, “He’s good a throwing shade in a fundie acceptable way. I don’t like him, but damn if it ain’t entertaining.”
Did anyone catch it? Last year, the network fired Jer’s brother-in-law, Derick Dillard, for making transphobic comments towards I Am Jazz star Jazz Jennings. “What an oxymoron… a ‘reality’ show which follows a non-reality,” he tweeted in August. “‘Transgender’ is a myth. Gender is not fluid; it’s ordained by God.”
Yet this isn’t the first time a family member seemingly showed their distaste for Jill Duggar‘s husband. In June, Ben Seewald tweeted, “If you say you ‘love thy neighbor’ while really just loving the people that look like you, live like you, and think like you — it is not your neighbor that you are loving… it is yourself. #reallylovethyneighbor.”
At the time, someone commented, “Looks like Ben is snarking the Dillards.” Another wrote, “And I’m here for it!!” while a third said, “Boom. Roasted.” Oh, and it should be noted that Ben no longer follows Derick on social media.
Even Jinger Duggar got in on the shade-throwing. Just days after the father-of-two called Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent‘s family a “travesty,” Jinge took to Instagram to share a photo of herself holding a book titled, She’s Got the Wrong Guy: Why Smart Women Settle. Ouch.
According to Amazon, the book is about how “the nicest women pick guys who let them down.” Sound familiar, Jill?
