JILL Duggar has been criticized by her sister-in-law Claire’s mother, Hilary Spivey, in a hidden comment for writing her comprehensive memoir about her family.
The shadow was cast in the Instagram comments section of James Duggar’s Father’s Day post.
James, 21, shared three commemorative photos with his father, Jim Bob Duggar, 57, to commemorate the holiday.
The post was captioned, “Happy Father’s Day to the man who has always been my biggest supporter.”
The Counting On graduate continued, “Pops, thank you so much for your endless sacrifices, your faith in me, for always pointing me to Christ, and for the countless memories we’ve made together.”
“I am grateful to call you my father and I am proud to be your child. No matter what anyone may say, yours.” [sic] the best dad in the world!”
James concluded by writing: “Today and every day I celebrate you and the incredible father that you are. I love you more than anything!”
In the comments section, one of James’ followers remarked: “I think you mean Happy Father’s Day Jill. Your parents didn’t raise you.”
Justin Duggar’s mother-in-law, Hilary Spivey, responded to the comment: “Oh my god I had no idea you were there!! I never saw you on the show!”
The commenter replied, “Oh, sorry. I never saw you either? So you obviously know everything?”
Hilary replied, “We’ve known her for 23 years.”
Again, the commentator spat back, “Cool. But you weren’t on the show. So go ahead.”
Hilary then wrote, seemingly looking at 32-year-old Jill: “You don’t know if Jill really just raised James for drama purposes based on a scripted TV show and some of the Dugger kids love their dad that much in a normal world .” Do you personally know her face to face in real life?
She added, “JAMES doesn’t care what you think anyway and I hope you do too.” [sic] do not spread false information.”
“And yet you allowed your daughter to marry into a family that covered up their daughters’ SA and never sought treatment for the trauma they suffered,” argued the commenter.
They continued: “A father who lied on the witness stand and said he couldn’t remember facts at the time despite speaking about it on Fox News. Are you serious?”
Hilary quickly ended the argument by simply saying, “Claire’s marriage has nothing to do with this.”
James recently shared a cryptic quote about losing his pride amid his family’s public unrest.
In an Instagram Story, the 19 Kids and Counting graduate wrote, “It’s okay to lose pride in someone you love.”
“Don’t lose someone you love because of your pride.”
The cryptic post came after the documentaries Shiny Happy People: Secrets of the Duggar Family Premiered on Amazon Prime.
During the premiere, James’ older sister Jill accused parents Jim Bob and Michelle, 56, of forcing them to defend their brother Josh, 35, after he allegedly abused them as a teenager.
In the 2015 TV interview with Megyn Kelly, Jill and her sister Jessa, 30, claimed the terrible news was “very mild.”
Reflecting on the interview, Jill said, “In hindsight, I wouldn’t have done the Megyn Kelly stuff. I felt like I was back in a place where I just had to carry the burden and weight of – even if you volunteer, that’s like you have a duty to help.
Husband Derick Dillard, 34, claimed his wife was sent on a “suicide mission” to save the future of the Duggar family on TV.
Jill added, “I’m not proud of that.”
The mother-of-three claimed, “If I hadn’t felt compelled to do it first for the show and second for my parents, I wouldn’t have done it.”
She concluded, “Yes, we were taken advantage of.”
Derick and Jill are parents to three sons: Israel, eight; Samuel, five; and five-month-old baby Frederick.
Earlier this month, Jill was slammed by her brother Jed and his wife Katey over her new memoir.
The Gossip Instagram Account, Without a crystal ballshared a snap of a fan’s criticism of the TLC alum’s new project on Wednesday.
“I can’t help but feel sorry for your parents. I can’t see my kids writing scrapbooks about my family,” the critic wrote to Jill.
“Here’s the thing, Jill: NO family is perfect. Not one. And yes, while most don’t have reality TV shows, you wouldn’t have the opportunity to capitalize on your story either.”
The site then noted that Jed, 24, and his wife liked the fan’s scathing comment in which he “shamed” his sister from their joint account.
THE COSTS COUNT
Jill has been very vocal about her feelings about her parents’ beliefs and parenting choices, while many of her other 18 siblings have remained silent.
The former TV star has now gone a step further in her book, revealing the secrets of her family. The costs countco-written with her husband Derick and writer Craig Borlase.
In the book’s description, the publisher wrote, “Discover for the first time the unedited truth about the Duggars, the traditional Christian family that captivated the nation on the TLC hit show 19 Kids and Counting.”
“Jill Duggar and her husband Derick are finally ready to tell their story and unveil the secrets, manipulation and intimidation behind the show that have remained hidden from their fans.”
Former reality TV star Jill adds: “I wasn’t protesting the strict model of patriarchy her family followed, which says men are superior, women are expected to be wives and mothers, and that they are prevented from attaining higher education that parental authority over their children persists well into adulthood, even after they are married.
“But as Jill got older, married Derick and they started their own lives, the warning signs became too obvious to ignore.”
Concluding the book’s shocking synopsis, they wrote: “For as long as they could, Jill and Derick tried to be obedient family members – they weren’t willing to rock the boat. But now they’re starting a family of their own, and.” They’re done with the secrets.
“Thanks to time, tears, therapy and the blessing of God, they have the strength to share their journey.”
