Sorry, Jinger Duggar, you’ve been dethroned! The former “rebel” of her famous family is no longer as big of a rule breaker as her big sis, Jill. Although Jinge is notorious for wearing pants — and was even once rumored to be on birth control — the 27-year-old has been rocking a nose piercing, getting a tattoo, and gasp! even showing off her shoulders. Now, fans seem to think they know why. 

According to the anti-Duggar Facebook page Life Is Not All Pickles and Hairspray, the former reality star is rebelling once more. Watch the video above to see their evidence and don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube Channel.

People quickly began commenting their thoughts on the theory, with many speculating it has to do with her controversial husband, Derick Dillard. “She has become a rule breaker because her husband allows her to break those rules,” one person wrote. “She is still a controlled woman following someone else’s rules.” Another added, “I would break the rules, too, if I was married to her husband… Her family doesn’t post about her like they used to since he got kicked off the show; she doesn’t seem to be the favorite anymore.” They added, “I wonder if Jim Bob regrets his matchmaking.”

ICYMI, Derick was given the boot by TLC for sharing his unwarranted opinions on I Am Jazz star Jazz Jennings. “What an oxymoron… a ‘reality’ show which follows a non-reality,” he wrote in August 2017. “‘Transgender’ is a myth. Gender is not fluid; it’s ordained by God.” 

After misgendering Jazz and expressing “pity” for her in November, the network released this statement: “We want to let our viewers know that Derick Dillard has not participated in Counting On for months and the network has no plans to feature him in the future,” they wrote. “We want to reiterate that Derick’s personal statements do not reflect the views of the network. TLC is proud to share the story of Jazz Jennings and her family and will continue to do so.”

Of course, there is no concrete evidence that Jill is rebelling because of her husband. That said, it does make a lot of sense!
