Anna Duggar … well, it’s safe to say that her life has been a little complicated for the past few years.
Ever since it was revealed that her husband, Josh Duggar, had molested five young girls when he was a teenager, things haven’t been easy for her.
Which, you know, makes sense.
Back in 2015, the news about Josh came out, and it was an absolute mess, to say the least.
Michelle and Jim Bob tried to make the situation seem not as bad as it was, which absolutely didn’t work, and 19 Kids and Counting was canceled.
A few months after that we learned that Josh had also had an Ashley Madison account, and that he’d been cheating on Anna, or at least trying to cheat on her.
In a statement about that part, Josh also admitted to being addicted to porn, so that’s another fun little tidbit.
After that, Anna essentially went into hiding. She didn’t appear much on Counting On or any of the family’s social media accounts, not to mention her own.
She got a whole lot of backlash for staying with Josh after the Ashley Madison thing, and for potentially endangering her children.
Not leaving him was a way of supporting him, even after everything had come out, and many people didn’t like that.
And that’s basically why she hasn’t made a post on her Instagram account in two years.
Until this weekend, that is.
Up until yesterday, her last post was in February of 2016, but then she posted this cute photo of two of her kids playing:
“Usually my boys are playing with blocks, hot wheels, and nerf guns,” she captioned the picture. “Sometimes they decide to get creative ‘toys’ — stack ’em and then snack ’em! #creativity”
So that’s pretty harmless, right?
Not so much.
Some people took issue with the fact that the boys are on the counter — one person wrote “I love you and all, but why would you let your kids play on top of a counter top like that?”
Others were upset that Anna didn’t post any pictures of her daughters, and one of her followers even asked if the girls were “allowed” to play like the boys.
But, of course, the main issue wasn’t with this particular picture, but with Josh.
“I don’t see your little girls in the picture,” someone told her. “I hope someone besides your cheating, molesting husband is watching them.”
“Please keep a careful, watchful eye on your kids both boys and girls,” another instructed.
One particularly passionate person commented with “Have you finally realized that there is no hope for cheaters and especially molesters???”
“Incestuous molestation at that..glad you have your children..but please move on and don’t bring anymore into the world with your sick hopefully soon to be Ex husband. HE TRIED TO RUIN YOU.”
Then, on a bonus photo Anna posted, one of adorable little Mason, she got more criticism.
“You continue to have babies with that cheating incest molesting husband of yours,” someone began over in that comment section. “Smh …. what did he say 3 hali Mary’s and u turned around and forgave him all willy nilly……”
“Set an example to your daughters for peets sake to be a strong woman…your families females being subservient to the man makes you ladies look weak which is something the movement is fight against…”
Whatever movement this person is talking about surely isn’t of interest to the Duggar clan, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have a point.
It is kind of bizarre how Anna is still pretending everything is fine after what Josh has done — or at least it would be in a normal marriage.
But of course at this point, we all know how far the Duggars are from normal.
