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
So, what is a Duggar Snark anyway?
A Duggar Snark is the exact opposite of a super fan. This is someone who is just as passionate about the Duggars as a fan. The only difference? A Duggar Snark does not like the Counting On family. A Duggar Snark is someone who loves to hate the Duggar family.
There’s an entire community of Duggar Snarks that frequent a Subreddit on a site called Reddit. These individuals watch and follow the Duggar family on social media. They go over everything with a fine tooth comb. These are people who tend to notice when things are amiss long before a fan of the family would. And, they would argue this is because they don’t look at the reality TV family with the same star-stunned glasses.
Furthermore, the Duggar Snark world is not limited to Reddit. There are Duggar Snark Facebook groups as well. One closed group in particular makes a huge effort not to let fans or members of the Duggar family into the group.
Individuals within this community spend time doing what they call “snarking” on the family.
Why does any of this matter?
Well, beyond clearing up terminology Tv Shows Ace frequently uses when reporting… There’s a little commotion in the Duggar Snark world right now.
According to a recent thread on the Duggar Snark subreddit… Members of the community noticed journalists and reporters were using various conversations to compose stories about the Duggar family. While doing so isn’t particularly an issue… Some of the journalists were improperly classifying users on the thread as fans.
We’re all famous! Lazy reporters dug into this subreddit’s comment archives from nearly one year ago to write an article speculating who might be the maid of honor for “not-even-courting-yet-Jana”. from DuggarsSnark
In the chatter of the thread, many furious Reddit users noted the journalists and reporters should at least stop referring to them as “fans” if they were going to quote them.
