Jessa Duggar seems to be the focus of the Duggar family in recent weeks. Now that the Josh Duggar scandals have died down significantly, critics are zeroing in on Jessa and her husband, Ben Seewald. The young couple has been singled out because of their show on TLC, Jill & Jessa: Counting On. Despite living their lives in the public eye, Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald have been rather quiet. The family recently took a trip out of their home state of Arkansas and found themselves in Kentucky. Now they are under fire for their choices of recreational activities, which leaves fans scratching their heads.
Faith is an important thing for Jessa Duggar. She was raised in an extremely Christian faith-based home, following strict rules for most of her life. Duggar has been vocal about her beliefs and lives her life in a manner that would be obvious as to what she believes. According to the Hollywood Gossip, Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald are being slammed for choosing to visit the replica of Noah’s Ark in Kentucky last week. Critics have attacked her on Instagram for joining the hype of the attraction. Duggar hasn’t said anything in response to the criticism and neither has Ben Seewald. Christianity isn’t something the husband and wife are ashamed of, and their trip to see this attraction shouldn’t surprise fans or critics.
The Duggar family is often the target of unfair critics and comments, but they have grown used to the public bashings. Jessa Duggar was brought into the Josh Duggar scandals when it was announced that she was a victim of his inappropriate touching when he was a teenager. Jessa and her older sister, Jill decided to do a special and talk about what happened in order to clear the air. That gave birth to Jill & Jessa: Counting On for the TLC network. The two sisters are admired by many, but they also have their fair share of haters. Duggar has lived her life incredibly publicly, continuing to document her married life on social media. Jessa and Ben Seewald have gotten a lot of unwelcome comments since joining Instagram and Twitter but never have responded to the negativity. The latest “scandal” involving the Noah’s Ark attraction isn’t going to get comments from Duggar or Seewald either.
On top of Jessa Duggar and her husband, Ben Seewald visiting the Noah’s Ark attraction in Kentucky, they are coming under fire for their comments on the shooting in Orlando a few weeks ago. Because of their beliefs, they often make comments that anger people who don’t follow their same train of thought. Despite not knowing all the details, Duggar and Seewald came off incredibly insensitive. Critics jumped on the bandwagon and immediately began bashing not only Jessa but the entire Duggar family.
Always singled out as a free spirit, Jessa Duggar now has competition in her younger sister, Jinger. It appears that Jinger may be the next Duggar to walk down the aisle now that she is courting Jeremy Vuolo. Recently, Jessa admitted to breaking courtship rules with Ben Seewald. Some believe Jinger and her new beau will follow suit.
Despite all of the chatter about Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald’s choices, they will remain who they are. Neither is apologetic for visiting the Noah’s Ark attraction because it is part of their beliefs. As the days go on and their show returns to TLC, the family will be targeted even more. Jessa Duggar has dealt with this negativity for most of her and while it isn’t easy, she has learned how to turn the other cheek and not react.
