Remember when there was like a five second span of time where Jill Duggar decided to be an Instagram influencer, posted her fall FabFitFun box, and then deleted the whole thing? Well, it seems she’s decided to stick her toe back into the influencer pool, because now the former Counting On star is partnering with a new company. Instead of a subscription box company, she’s promoting a t-shirt company called Oliver and Otis.
These aren’t like the sort-of-subtle Instagram ads for t-shirts she’s posted in the past where she thanks someone for sending her a cute shirt to show off. This is a full-blown partnership — and it’s proven by the hashtag #partner that Jill threw in the post (though she still didn’t use the #ad hashtag like she’s supposed to). “So excited to #partner with @oliverandotis ❤️ **15% off** with my code: DILLARD15 Swipe up in my story to shop now or visit @oliverandotis 🛍 Offer valid till midnight December 6th!!! 🎉 #christmasgifts #lovetheirstuff,” she wrote online.
And that’s not all. Just one day later, she was sharing another ad on her feed, this time showing off a different Oliver and Otis shirt and a pair of earrings from another company. “Hurry and check out @oliverandotis adorable shirts! 15% off everything with code: DILLARD15 Offer ends at midnight Dec 6th!! #partner #joycomesinthemorning #comfyshirt #christmasgiftideas photo credit: Israel Dillard (lol) Earrings from @tradesofhope.”
Some fans just weren’t having it, though. “Oh, Jill… Not you too!” wrote one. “We follow you for YOU and not selling stuff like all the rest. We all know reality TV money is A LOT… Please don’t sell out.” Another added, “I’m tired of all of my favorite Instagram sites all of a sudden promoting crap to buy.” But do you know who was all about it? The 27-year-old’s little sister Jessa Duggar, who’s also dabbled in that Instagram influencer life. “Adorable,” she commented on the pic. “Love them!!” Jill wrote back. At least she’s got someone’s support, right?
