Austin Forsyth and Joy Anna Duggar aren’t always the most scandalous members of the Duggar family, but when they do something wrong, fans are usually pretty angry.
They used to spark outrage for their hunting photos, but followers have gotten used to the fact that Joy and Austin are going to keep hunting animals for sport, no matter how many mean comments they leave on their page.
But this time around, fans are more angry because Austin may have been endangering the lives of other fellow humans, which is something that is definitely not cool according to fans.
During this past year, we’ve learned a lot more about the Duggar family’s moral code. Most of the family members have been seen many times without masks during the mandatory mask mandate, and fans are really started to get fed up.
Not only are they endangering themselves, but they’re also endangering others! Back in January, Joy Anna recently opened up about her COVID-19 experience.
A fan asked if anyone in the family had contracted the deadly disease, and she admitted that both she and Austin had gotten sick.
“Yes, Austin and I both tested positive for COVID last year,” she replied.
Now if you do the math, Joy-Anna spent most of last year pregnant, which means she was sick while carrying her baby!
Contracting COVID-19 while pregnant increases the mother’s risk of becoming severely ill, and they are more likely to develop respiratory issues and being placed on a ventilator.
“I was still pregnant with Evelyn,” she continued. “We both had body aches, slight fever, and lost our tase and smell. Thankfully we recovered quickly!”
According to The Hollywood Gossip, Joy and Austin could have contracted the virus from members of the Bates family. Carlin Bates visited Joy and her family for the fourth of July, and later on August 16 confirmed that she tested positive for COVID-19.
A little while after, Joy-Anna had a baby shower where few guests were photographed wearing masks indoors.
And now, fans are livid because it appears Joy and Austin have not learned their lesson…
In the video, it appears he is in some sort of smoothie shop. The worker is wearing a mask and gloves, while Austin doesn’t appear to have a mask anywhere on him.
The original poster, u/risslerassle_fizzle, explained that their friend sent them the video from Sarasota, FL. They wrote:
Apparently even the Duggars feel it appropriate to visit Florida right now amid a global pandemic and sharp rises in variant strains. She met Austin in the Tropical Smoothie at UTC Sarasota. Joy was not with him, and he was surprisingly very pleasant (despite no mask and clear disrespect for others’ health). Austin said hello unprompted and asked how her day was going. She asked if he was, indeed, Austin Forsyth to which he nodded yes. No sighting of other Duggars or Forsyths…yet.
And fans made their opinions known in the comments…
