She’s a rebel!
Jinger Duggar has been slowly been becoming her own person ever since she tied the knot to former soccer star Jeremy Vuolo last November. She made headlines back in March when she was spotted breaking a major Duggar rule — wearing shorts — and now she’s stirring up controversy again by wearing pants while shooting a gun!
The 23-year-old shared photos on her Instagram from her fun day date with Jeremy to a local shooting range in Laredo, Texas and many of her followers were shocked because she not only was she breaking her family’s modesty dress rule but she was also holding a weapon.
“Target practice at the shooting range with my sharpshooter hubby,” she wrote in the caption.
One fan wrote, “I can’t understand how such godly people would even pick up a gun?” and another wrote, “They seem to be good people so this shocked me that it is [okay] and normal.” Another Instagram user criticized the couple for being hypocrites because they were “Godly” but they were using weapons that could kill others.
While many of her fans didn’t approve of their shooting range date, many of them were happy to see Jinger wearing pants, which is something she would not have been allowed to do if she was still unmarried and living with her parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar.
“Pants?!! Heck yeah, girl,” one fan commented, and another wrote, “I love the way she’s become her own person since she got married and moved away from mom and dad.”
While the other Duggar girls chose to keep with their family’s tradition of dressing modestly in a feminine way by only wearing long skirts and dresses, Jinger’s pastor hubby is a little bit more laid back when it comes to his definition of modest dressing. He explained his views in a sermon that he gave last December.
“It is your liberty as to whether you dress modestly with a modest pair of pants, or with a skirt, or with a T-shirt, or with a blouse,” he said at the time. “It is not your liberty, women, to wear sensual, seductive clothing that is designed to draw the attention of your brothers.”
