Jinger Duggar is one of the less scandalous members of the Counting On family – considering the fact that the Duggar’s regularly have quite a bit going on for themselves. However, Jinger and her husband have recently found themselves at the center of one serious ongoing controversy.
Last week, Jinger Duggar took her newborn daughter out to a baseball game. She and her husband posed with baby Felicity outside of the stadium, and now that photo has been the subject of a few different controversies.
Jinger wrapped the little one’s head in a scarf, which some began claiming was cultural appropriation. However, considering the fact that there were far more people complaining about people who said it was culturally appropriate than there were people who said anything about the headscarf to start with, it seems like some of that drama may have been manufactured.
However, there was another, very different debate going on about the two-month-old baby’s health.
“she is still very young to be out in crowds, especially that size,” wrote one concerned fan. “PRAYING she is at least receiving vaccines but it is RSV and FLU season. Nothing is more tragic then an infant becoming deathly sick or dying because of contracting a communicable disease.”
“Love this family. But never a fan of bringing a baby out in large public places without baby having its shots,” commented another longtime follower. “Way to many infectious germs out there for her. Blessings.”
“it’s cute.. but isn’t a stadium loud for a baby??” added a third longtime fan.
“I hope the baby was wearing ear protection,” wrote Reddit user @kate_Pansy. “A quick psa, baseball games are around 94 dB, which can start permanently damaging hearing after only one hour of exposure. Please wear your hearing protection/enjoy your hearing loss!”
