Another day, another Duggar controversy! Jill and Derick Dillard are under fire once again, this time for using food as sunblock. Seriously. The couple took their family to a friend’s farm yesterday and snapped a few seemingly innocent photos — yet it was the last one in the album that drew concern from fans. Their son, Samuel — who was born in July — was given a tortilla to wear on his head instead of a hat. See the controversial photo and read what people had to say in the video below!
Last week, the pair received backlash after asking for money to fund a ministry trip. The Counting On stars recently revealed that they were leaving their El Salvador ministry for a different program at Cross Church. The father-of-two took to Pure Charity — similar to GoFundMe — to announce why he needed the extra bucks.
“BIG NEWS! For the next year, I will be serving through a program at my home church, called the Cross Church School of Ministry!” He wrote. “I am so excited about this incredible opportunity for further ministry development, and I would like to invite you to share in this excitement with me.” Fans took his “share in this excitement” comment as “fork over your money,” so unfortunately, people weren’t giving much more than an eye roll to the cause. “I’m going to donate my charity money to my local food bank or women’s shelter… you have lots of money from TLC, why don’t you put that towards your ministry?” One person quipped. Another added, “The lying scamming bigot is at it again.”
On Aug. 2, the 28-year-old decided to voice his unwanted opinion on Twitter about fellow TLC star and transgender teen, Jazz Jennings. He wrote, “What an oxymoron… a ‘reality’ show which follows a non-reality.” As if that weren’t enough, he added, “‘Transgender’ is a myth. Gender is not fluid; it’s ordained by God.”
Counting On returns Monday, Sept. 11 at 9 p.m. EST on TLC.
