Watch out, Jim Bob! Another member of the patriarch's famous family is rebelling. Just one day after Jill Duggar busted out a new pair of skinny jeans, the former Counting On star revealed that she allows her sons to watch the non-Christian program, Peppa Pig. Gasp! The mother-of-two took to Instagram to post a screenshot of her photos after Isreal took snaps from the show. "When your #3yearold finds your phone and fills up your photo library with #randomphotos of #peppapig lol #israeldaviddillard," she captioned it. Watch the video above to see the pic — and to see how fans are reacting!
In an interview with the Huffington Post in 2011, Jim Bob opened up about why TV is a huge no-no in their home. He said, "I grew up watching TV, but when we got married a doctor friend of ours encouraged us not to have a pet or a TV the first year of marriage. So we did that. For the first year we lived on love," Jim Bob explained. "And after that someone gave us a TV and for the first three weeks we were both glued to it. Communications dropped off, we weren't talking as much, and we couldn't believe the content on TV we didn't think was appropriate. This is detrimental to our marriage. We prayed about it and felt we had to pull it out of our house, which we did. And I would say that is one of the best things we have done for our family."
But don't worry, they are allowed to watch DVDs… from the 1960s. "We do watch DVDs, The Andy Griffith Show," Jim Bob added. "We are very selective about what we watch. We actually don't watch broadcast TV."
Of course, Jill is no stranger to rebelling. Last month, she and her disgraced hubby, Derick Dillard, got "high on love" in Colorado, but most fans were focused on her nose piercing. " Love how she has a nose ring! So cute, she looks great!" wrote one fan. "I spy a tiny nose piercing! Very cute!" agreed another.
The 26-year-old's accessory actually isn't that new. She was first seen with it in November 2017, on the heels of news that her husband was fired by TLC for his hateful words about the network's star Jazz Jennings, who is transgender. After numerous, hate-fueled tweets about how being trans is a "falsehood," TLC decided to part ways with Derick and revealed that he will no longer be featured on Counting On.
Most recently, Derick took aim at Nate & Jeremiah by Design stars, Nate Berkus and his husband, Jeremiah Brent. "What a travesty of family," he wrote on a promo for the hit TLC show. "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." Ugh.
So could it be that Jill is rebelling to prove she's cooler than her awful husband? That's certainly what it seems like. The former reality star even went as far as getting a tattoo, and honestly, we're here for it.
