Counting On: Derick Has Been Outspoken About His Dislike For Jim Bob

Counting On: Derick Has Been Outspoken About His Dislike For Jim Bob

The Duggar family has lived its life under the public eye for over a decade, but that doesn’t mean it’s an open book. Quite the opposite, actually. Family followers have spent countless hours theorizing about family dynamics, and many of them suspect that Jim Bob Duggar was the source of most of the family’s recent conflicts. If Instagram’s Jill Duggar’s behavior is an indication, it may not be so. It seems Jill may have a grudge against her mother, Michelle Duggar, and not her father.

Counting On: Derick Has Been Outspoken About His Dislike For Jim Bob

Derick Dillard was open about his feelings towards the Duggar family. In fact, Derick is the first Duggar father-in-law who rebelled and spoke negatively about Jim Bob and the family show, Counting On. While he was open about his feelings towards Jim Bob and the TLC, he mostly avoided talking about Michelle.

Derick Dillard spoke openly about how he was not paid for his time at Counting On. He also revealed that Jim Bob does not allow him and his family to stay at his home in Duggar’s Springdale, Arkansas. Derick has even suggested that Jill Duggar be kept away from her siblings for fear of the influence she would have on them.

In all of his online interviews and reflections, Derick Dillard hasn’t said a single word, either negative or positive, about Michelle. While fans have ignored this fact, it’s hard to ignore the fact that Jill Duggar seems to treat her parents differently, at least when it comes to recognizing them on social media.

Counting On: Jill Did İnclude Her Father İn Her Father’s Day Post

While Derick may still have a problem with Jim Bob, Jill Duggar seemed to be in a more forgiving mood on June 21. The mother of two children went to Instagram to wish her husband, her father and her late father-in-law a happy Father’s Day. Sure, Jill didn’t get a poetic idea of Jim Bob, but any recognition from Jill seemed interesting to the followers of the Duggar family.

Jill Duggar went to Instagram to share photos of her husband, father and father-in-law. The caption mostly talked about Derick and how he is a good father to their two sons, Israel and Sam, but she offered her father a shoutout. At the end of the post, she said, “Happy Father’s Day to all fathers, but especially to my hubby, my father and father-in-law (whom I’ve never had the privilege to know)”. So grateful for all three and blessed by them in so many ways!

Jill was one of the only Duggars to recognize Jim Bob on the big day. Jessa Duggar, who apparently emerged as the Duggar family brand manager, couldn’t recognize her father on Sunday. But it probably wasn’t an insult. She barely recognized the father of her three children.
