It seems that anytime a Duggar family member posts a picture of their child on Instagram, people have opinions about it, something Duggar darling Jinger Dugger Vuolo quickly learned recently. While there are many who are critical of the Duggar family, Jinger has long been praised by fans and followers for breaking from the family’s strict religious rules. Jinger was the first Duggar daughter to move away from home following her marriage to Jeremy Vuolo and is often photographed wearing pants, short skirts, and dresses, and showing her shoulders and arms, something that is frowned upon in the Duggar family home that embraces “modest dress.” Recently fans were critical of the couple after they posted a seemingly innocent picture of their daughter, Felicity, on Instagram.
Jeremy Vuolo posted a picture on his Instagram account of 1-year-old Felicity eating a barbecue rib, something that has some fans outraged. While the picture shows Felicity clearly enjoying the rib, others chimed in, disappointed to see the child eating meat.
“Please think about the animal that was badly beaten in the face then shot, so you could post a picture of your daughter on Instagram eating ribs,” wrote one commenter. “This part of meat once was also a living creature with the need to live as this little girl also wants. Not wish he was dead to be eaten,” wrote another, while another asked simply, “Will you teach her to be kind to animals?”
Fans of the couple were quick to defend their choice to feed their child however they choose, taking to the comment section in their defense. “Holy wow..are people really judging and shaming them for eating meat?! NOT EVERYONE NEEDS TO BE A DANG VEGAN,” read one comment. “Dear everyone offended by her eating meat, get a life,” read another, while one person simply commented, “People should mind their own business.” Another wrote that those making negative comments have no clue how the food Felicity was eating was farmed. "How do you know for certain where and how this restaurant even gets their meat products," they wrote.
Vuolo, who considers himself a bit of a foodie, often posts pictures of different foods and dishes on his Instagram account, and it’s clear he’s not vegan nor a vegetarian so it’s no wonder his daughter isn’t either.
Neither Jinger nor Jeremy replied to the comments and continue to post pictures of their adorable family.
