Joy-Anna has been mom-shamed in the past
Thanks to social media, mom-shaming and parent-shaming have become a thing. Now, fans and haters alike post hurtful comments toward moms and parents. They might call out a parent’s decision or point out everything they’re doing wrong. As a Duggar daughter, Joy-Anna has been subject to some parent-shaming in the past.
Recently, as TV Shows Ace reports, Joy-Anna faced backlash for not putting a helmet on Gideon while he rode a horse. She also got the heat for letting Gideon play near construction equipment. Sometimes, Joy-Anna decides to explain herself or clap back. Usually, a simple explanation shows Duggar fans that Joy-Anna is a good mother.
On social media, Joy-Anna has even received nasty comments about her dog’s collar. In one photo, her dog is seen wearing a collar that looks like a shock collar. After Duggar fans left concerned comments for her, she simply explains that it’s an invisible fence collar. Joy-Anna isn’t rude, but she does state the facts.
