The #Duggar Family is in the middle of another debate. They have always been anti-television, but have admitted to owning one a few years back. It didn't last long as the Duggars were becoming "addicted" to it, so they opted to remove it again. In fact, #Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald have decided to follow in their footsteps and continue to live free of television.

Duggar family hypocrisy

According to the Hollywood Gossip, the Duggar family is under fire again for being hypocritical. It appears that a photo of Josie that was posted to social media is being attacked. She is wearing a "Paw Patrol" shirt and the Duggars say they don't watch television.

It is a show on Nickelodeon, one that caters to younger children. Some have stepped up and acknowledged that the shirt could have been a thrift store find while others pointed out the shirt looks too new to be something bought secondhand. All of this over a small shirt the youngest Duggar family was wearing seems to be a bit overboard.

This isn't the first scandal the Duggar family has endured, though it may be one of the more trivial. There was once a point in time where the family was held in high regard. Their rules were something to be admired, and many of their followers adopted similar ones of their own. After Josh Duggar was revealed to be a sexual deviant, things went downhill for the entire family. They have been criticized for nearly everything since then. Because of the haters being out in full force, there have been less and less public speaking events.

Television is still not allowed

Despite the world becoming more dependent on media in general, the Duggar family is not going to give in and allow television in their home. They are allowed to watch shows that religious-based, but nothing else. Jessa Duggar has admitted to watching some shows online, especially ones like "Fixer Upper" and probably a bit of their own show, "#Counting On."

While this hypocrisy seems minor, the haters are going on and on and on. The Duggar family Facebook page has been the center of drama for several years now. From 2015 until now, things have been intense for the Duggar family. Josh caused a lot of trouble for his entire family, almost costing them their income. Despite the fact that he cannot air on "Counting On," the show is still going on. TLC is out to make money and the Duggar family is one of the network's biggest earners. Money speaks in this business.
