Anna Duggar said nothing in public at all against husband Josh Duggar after he admitted to both the molestation of his sisters and the affairs he carried on with random women he met online.
But the former reality star has now made a statement in defense of a different relative.
The typically shy and private mother of five clapped back at a hater on Instagram this week, causing nearly every user of this platform to do a double take in surprise.
What was it that prompted Anna to finally speak out?
The ex-19 Kids and Counting cast member simply had to respond to a commenter who, oddly enough, had something to say about her nephew’s toe.
“What happened to his poor toe?” someone asked in response to a photo of Jessa Duggar’s son last week. “I never saw anything about that.”
“His toe is just fine! Spurgeon must have bent it while taking the picture.”
Hey, we didn’t say it was an epic clapback by Anna. But you gotta start somewhere!
Spurgeon, of course, is the son of Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald.
He has a brother named Henry and he’ll soon have another sibling, as well.
“We are overjoyed that God has blessed us with a baby, due late this Spring!” Duggar said this week, adding to various outlets:
“From the day we found out we were expecting, we both guessed boy, and if our predictions are right then we already have a ton the clothing and accessories ready to pass down!”
Jessa also made it clear in this statement that she’d be happy to have a girl as well.
Jessa has also been known herself to step up any time an Internet trolls says something about her or a loved one.
Just a few days before she told the world she was expecting, Jessa put some loser in his place after this loser trolled Jessa’s young nephew, Meredith, online.
Back to Anna, however:
She has scarcely been in the spotlight at all ever since the many scandals surrounding her awful husband went viral.
Not that we can blame her one bit for wanting to lay low for pretty much the rest of her life.
However, Anna and Josh did pose together in public last fall and have started to make their social media presence a little more widly known over the last several weeks.
Anna almost always just shared pictures of her kids on her page, while Josh Duggar has thankfully remained silent across the board via that medium.
There had been talk at some point about him making a reality show comeback, but we haven’t heard any of that chatter in a very long time.
It does appear as though even that industry has certain lines one cannot cross if it wishes to remain relevant — and inappropriately touching one’s own siblings most definitely qualifies.
