The The Duggar family are no strangers in the spotlight, but lately everything they do is under scrutiny. Last? The family’s account shared a picture of a teenage boy, Jackson, who had a dead buck he bagged on the first day of the hunting season.
“We have already enjoyed some of the meat of his harvest! Deer jerky is one of our favorites. Jackson is a good shot and will also be a great cook! Isolated on white. Fans of the comments section split, and some congratulated Jackson on the award.
Fans split up
“Have a good trip Jackson!” one fan commented. Another wrote, “My grandson also got the first one. It is processed and the meat is donated to a mission that feeds many high quality proteins.
Others found the image disgusting, and one person wondered if he would publish a photo that “appears[s] a dead animal as some kind of prize is tasty at all. “
While the post sparked discussion in the comments section, it has nothing to do with what else the Duggar family has to face.
The eldest son, Josh, is awaiting trial
Earlier this year, the eldest son, Josh Duggar, was arrested on charges of child pornography. The Arkansas Federal Jury prosecuted Duggar, claiming that in 2019 he knowingly received pictures of children under the age of 12. If found guilty, Duggar could face up to 20 years in prison and up to $ 250,000 in fines for both reasons.
Duggar has denied guilt in both charges and lawyers say he plans to “fight back in the courtroom.”
Parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have never directly commented on the allegations, but only referred to it in a family statement posted on their website. They reflect on their lives in the spotlight, which included “some of the hardest and most painful moments our family has ever faced.”
Josh Duggar is currently awaiting trial and has been placed in the care of “third-party guardians” who are family friends. He can have nothing to do with the minor children except his own, and then only in the presence of Duggar’s wife, Anna.
Josh and Anna recently welcomed their seventh common child, a girl named Madyson Lily Duggar.
