Jill Duggar says ‘I stand with you’ about George Floyd protests after strict family remains silent – The Sun

COUNTING On's Jill Duggar stood by protestors who are demanding justice for George Floyd's death.

The rest of her family has remained silent and have failed to show any type of support.

Jill, 29, shared an image on her Instagram social where she showed support for Black Lives Matter.

The image read: "I see you, I hear you, I stand with you."

In the picture, two women wore t-shirts that read "Black Lives Matter" and "I can't breath."

Fans actually applauded her for posting a message of solidarity, instead of ignoring the movement.

Two of Jill's sisters recently came under fire after they either failed to say something or brushed over the subject with a Bible verse.

First, Jessa, 27, took to Instagram to share a black square with the words "Image of God."

She also captioned the image with: "Made in the image of God. Psalm 8:3-5 #georgefloyd."

But as for Joy-Anna, she shared a photo of her 2-year-old son Gideon “playing in mud puddles” while ignoring Blackout Tuesday.

Some of her followers didn’t think this was the right time to be posting cute family photos, especially if she’s not also going to post about Blackout Tuesday or of anything in support of the Black Lives Matter movement and against racial injustice.

Questioning Joy-Anna’s priorities, one follower commented: “All of your combined followers and support for your family, yet not one mention of support from ANY Duggar on the state of this nation and it’s fellow people of color.

“Shame. But we’re all God’s children, right?”

Though the soon-to-be mother of two hasn’t posted anything about the death of George Floyd last week or the Black Live Matters protests in the wake of it, her sister-in-law Anna Duggar has.

Instead of sharing photos of her son Marcus’ 7th birthday on Tuesday, Josh Duggar’s wife she posted for Blackout Tuesday, writing with it: “My mind keeps thinking of George Floyd’s family. I cannot imagine what his family is going through right now.

“Our family is praying for God’s peace to surround them – and all who are hurting – may God bring healing and peace to our nation!”

Most recently, Jill had fans raving when she posted a picture of herself wearing a tank top and bearing her collarbone and shoulders.

In the snap, the reality star was chomping on Twizzlers while posing next to her five-year-old son, Israel David.

Jill started feuding with her parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, after her husband, Derick Dillard, accused the patriarch of withholding money for their appearances on the family’s reality show, Counting On.

In addition to the salary claims, Derick has also alleged over social media that they are not allowed in the Duggar family home without Jim Bob’s permission.

The law school student even revealed he is writing a tell-all about the situation.

The couple has also broken the family’s strict rules recently.

Jill traded in her long skirts and dresses for jeans, which goes against the family’s conservative dress code.

She also pierced her nose, which is against the rules.

They enrolled their oldest son, Israel, 5, in public school instead of homeschooling him and they allow him and Sam, 2, to listen to rave music.
