Josh Duggar is perhaps the biggest skeleton in the family closet.
It was back in 2015 when news of his sins broke. It was revealed that he had extramarital affairs. He also sexually abused his sisters during his teen years. The scandal caused the TLC series 19 Kids and Counting to be canceled.
Jim Bob and his wife Michelle have been able to re-brand themselves.
Slowly but surely, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have used the new TLC series Counting On to re-brand themselves. Fans watched Josh and Anna make-up and then have several children. Fans have also seen Michelle and Jim Bob spend more time with their son. Josh even makes appearances on their social media accounts from time to time.
Scandal also broke out when Jill Duggar Dillard and her husband Derick were assumed to have been fired from TLC. Rumor was his negative comments regarding Jazz Jennings resulted in their removal from the show. Unfortunately, it does not appear as if Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have attempted to mend any bridges with Jill and her family.
Jill and Derick Dillard are considered by many to be the outcasts of the family.
As we’ve previously reported, Derick Dillard made some serious waves when he spoke out against Jill’s parents on Instagram. Derick claimed Jim Bob forced his daughters (including Jill) to continue to film after news of Josh’s abuse broke. He claimed Jim Bob withheld any money the couple earned from the series. He also claimed Jill was not allowed to visit her family home without Jim Bob’s permission.

We enjoyed a double date with Pops & Lolli this evening! It means the world to have parents that unconditionally love us and who are there to encourage us along life’s way. • The older I get, the more I realize just how much I value and lean on the advice from our parents and the Godly men & women who are a couple decades ahead of us in life. • Thanks Sweetie, Pops & Lolli for such a fun evening — it was great to chat, laugh and have a great night out together! ♥️ • #littleduggars #JimBob #Michelle #Josh #Anna #Duggar #doubledatenight #datenight
It has been several years since Jill and Derrick were featured anywhere on Jim Bob and Michelle’s social media platforms.
According to Cheat Sheet, many Counting On fans can’t help but notice how differently Michelle and Jim Bob treat Jill versus how they treat Josh.
It was just yesterday that Anna Duggar shared a snap of herself enjoying night out with Jim Bob and Michelle.
“We enjoyed a double date with Pops & Lolli this evening! It means the world to have parents that unconditionally love us and who are there to encourage us along life’s way,” Anna gushed in the caption.
The snapshot had many fans scratching their heads. Why were Jim Bob and Michelle so willing to spend time with Josh, but so unwilling to spend time with Jill?
While Anna did have some followers leave positive comments and blessings, a lot of her comments were negative. Some seized the post as an opportunity to bash her husband. Others, however, wondered about Jill Duggar Dillard.
“Where’s Jill?” One individual penned in a comment.
A second added: “Too bad they don’t show Jill and her family the same unconditional love.”
“What had Jill done that was soooooo bad?” A third questioned before adding it wasn’t possible she did something worse than her brother Josh.
Notably, the last time Michelle and Jim Bob mentioned Jill and her husband on social media was in 2017. It was when they acknowledged the birth of Sam Dillard.
