The photo, which was posted to the 29-year-old’s social media on Wednesday, features the Counting On reality star at the Tontitown Grape Festival in Arkansas. And while she looks happy in a knee-length striped dress and a jacket, Duggar is accused of taking issue with the outfits of a pair of ladies behind her.
According to followers, Duggar altered the photo before posting in order to cover up the women standing behind her — something that some argue wouldn’t necessarily stand out if you didn’t zoom in on the photo. Still, those who saw it are calling Duggar out for it.
“If Jana doesn’t want to share a photo that shows people whom she considers to be dressed immodestly then that’s absolutely fine, it is her page and she is allowed to share what she sees fit, but what is not acceptable is imposing her own personal standards on other people without their consent by editing their appearance in such a way,” one person wrote. “The Duggars expect to have their beliefs and standards respected, to not extend the same basic courtesy to other people is hypocritical to say the least.”
Two others pointed out that there is somebody photographed just behind Duggar who is actually displaying his middle finger, and maybe even lifting up his shirt.
“You do realize there’s a boy in the background lifting his shirt and flicking you off right??” one commented. “I guess u were too occupied with covering the girls thighs u didnt notice.... How sad.”
Some came to Duggar’s defense to say that she might be doing it for her brothers’ sakes and critics were searching for something negative.
“If I had to guess, I would assume she did it for the benefit of her younger brothers who may follow her,” one follower theorized. “Not as a sign of disrespect to the women (whose faces you can’t even see). I honestly don’t understand the outrage.”
“Those few people here in the comments that are mad because Jana allegedly edited the picture are obviously here strictly for the purpose of looking for something to be mad at,” the other wrote. “They were obviously scouring the photo, searching to find something to be upset about. I can't imagine being that negative, to go looking for things to be offended by. That kind of misery must be awful.”
Many other comments flooding Duggar’s photo were simply in awe of the young woman and her personal style.
“Jana. You are a beautiful young lady and you always present yourself as a decently clothed and lovely young lady. It's so rare to see young lady with grace and style,” one fan commented.
Another said, “My favorite Duggar without a doubt.”
