This weekend was a shocking one for fans of 'Counting On' fans, as they found out that Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard were not welcome at the family home. Dillard spilled the beans to his wife that his in-laws do not want to have anything to do with them, and this sounded inappropriate. When fans on Instagram heard this, they took to the comment section to express their disappointments. As the conversations is still ongoing, several viewers are sharing their observations on the matter.
How did fans find out about this weird rule in the Dillard's home?
Dillard shared a lovely Christmas photo album on Instagram in the early hours of the week, and his response to one of his fans fueled questions from different angles. He mentioned to the fan that one of the rules for the Duggar children, is that they are not allowed in the home when Jim Bob is present. Furthermore, Dillard revealed that he has to seek permission from Bob before he visits.
He also revealed that one time, his sister was in labor, and needed someone to help her, but he could not come to her aid, until Bob gave a positive answer. According to the rules, if Dillard and his wife go to the family home without seeking proper permission, they may be sued for trespassing. However, Dillard explained to the fan that since they have all grown up in the family, he has realized that he can defend himself against any kind of lawsuit thrown at him.
Dillard went on to say that all these rules he has to face come with no hard feelings, as he does not mind, but it seems like fans are not taking the news lightly. Some fans on Facebook expressed their feelings in different ways. Most of them concluded that the Duggars had been on reality television for too long, and it was getting out of hand. Some fans also mentioned that the Duggars were only trying to conceive a scandal that they had going on.
While a large percentage of fans trolled the Duggars family on social media, others came to their rescue by calling out Jim Bob. The first thing a fan pointed out, was the fact that Bob's kids needed to have a spin-off that does not include him. Another fan also mentioned that Bob and his wife, Michelle have used up their privileges on television, and now, it is time to go.
