‘Counting On’: Jinger Duggar’s Husband, Jeremy Vuolo is in Hot Water
TLC Counting On spoilers and recaps reveal we all love to make jokes and have fun and some people take their jokes a little too far. Jinger Duggar’s husband, Jeremy Vuolo, is now asking for forgiveness from fans and the Duggars because of a joke he made about Mary Duggar, who is Jinger’s grandmother. She died on June 8 of last year.
A Grasshopper Video to Make Fans Cringe
Jeremy wasn’t aware that the video he posted on social media would cause quite a ruckus. He shared a video of a grasshopper that was in the pool and a dog trying to save it. He wrote, “Would you rather: a) drown in a swimming pool; or b) be crushed by the jaws and teeth of a massive god-like creature that is 4000x bigger than you. I know, it’s a tough one.” He quickly removed the video after fans started in on him for being insensitive since Mary drowned in a pool.
He told his fans, “Yesterday, I retweeted a nature video and made a comment about a grasshopper drowning in a pool. I was not thinking about what happened last summer and, as soon as I realized how insensitive it was, I took it down. I asked my wife and in-laws to forgive me and I hope you will as well!”
Fans Praised Him For Apologizing
Many of Jeremy’s fans praised him for apologizing and taking the video down. One wrote, “ I don’t think anyone made that connection but if the family did, then this was the loving course of action. We have ALL stumbled with our words and been insensitive, whether intentional or not. It shows the strength of character to address it and apologize.” We do hope that the Duggars know that the intention behind the post was not at all to be insensitive.
When Mary died, she had already had two strokes and the Duggars tried their best to keep a close eye on her. She had slipped into the pool and drowned before anyone could find her. The family pays tribute to her quite often and she even became known as “America’s grandma” by the fans of Counting On and 19 Kids and Counting.
