Amy King claps back at followers on social media
In the comments section of the new post, one comment read, “All the Duggar babies are gorgeous. Because all the mommas are gorgeous.” In response, Amy wrote, “Thank you but he’s a King baby!”
It seems that some fans thought that this comment from Amy was rude. Someone wrote, “She might not want to be compared to the duggars which i get….but she digress have duggar blood in her which means her baby does too. …. And let’s be honest here, if it wasnt for the duggar name she wouldn’t be famous. Not trying to be rude just being honest. So no need to be so rude at times about it.”
Amy then said, “I do not consider myself ‘ famous’ that’s just so weird to me! I’m just a girl who’s related to a famous family . I haven’t been on television in years!”
A few other commenters said that Amy used the Duggar family name to help her become famous too. Someone said, “You used the Duggar name & fame when it was convenient for you!!”
In response to all of the drama in the comments, one of Amy’s followers commented, “Oh, this is new. Now we have the genetic police. Get a grip peeps! 😊” Amy replied and left a laughing emoji.
Fortunately, Amy received plenty of support in response. Her fans were quick to defend her. They say that she’s just asking to be her own person outside of the Duggar family. She wants to be recognized for her own life and not the lives of her family members.
