Joseph Duggar and Pregnant Wife Head to Florida Amid Pandemic, Earn All the Backlash

Fans across the Internet have one simple question for Kendra and Joseph Duggar.

These individuals have taken a look at the married couple’s latest array of Instagram photos and they would just like a response to the following inquiry:

The parents of two, who are currently expecting their third child, shared a number of pictures late last week from a family vacation to Florida.

In these snapshots, we can see that 10-month old daughter Addison and two-year old son Garrett had lots of fun on the beach, while Kendra cradled her baby bump and smiles were plastered on everyone’s faces.

The only problem with the getaway?

It took place in one of the states that has been hit hardest by COVID-19 and which doesn’t seem to be taking many precautions to keep residents and tourists safe from this disease.

Kendra has two little kids.

And another on the way.

And few followers can comprehend why she would take any risk at all with their health.

“I guess 50,000 new cases of COVID a day in the US means nothing to them,” wrote one critic in response to the trip and its associated photographs.

Another sniped: “And no masks!!!”

And a third raged as follows:

“But wtf are they thinking? Going to Florida in a f–king pandemic? Especially when Kendra’s pregnant!! These people are so f–king stupid.”

There does seem to be an unfortunate pattern here.

Last month, Kendra also slammed for not wearing a mask in public.

To be clear, the Duggars did not break any rules or laws in traveling from Arkansas to Florida for this vacation.

According to critics, with the U.S. death toll now over 214,000 victims from COVID-19, they simply took an unncessary risk in order to spend some time on a beach.

Joseph and Kendra announced their surprise pregnancy in mid-August.

“We are so excited to announce that we have a tie-breaker coming in February. Baby #3 is on the way!” the pair told People Magazine in a statement at the time.

With two kids at home under two years old back then, this seemed like a quick turnaround… even for members of the Duggar family.

The new baby is due in February.

“We are so excited to see Garrett and Addison’s reaction when they meet the new baby,” they added in their statement.

“Garrett has already been such a loving big brother to Addison and we look forward to Addison’s reaction to a life size baby doll.

“Life is full of surprises and we’re thrilled that it is a sweet baby that surprises us this time!”

We wish Kendra a happy and healthy rest of her pregnancy, and hope she starts taking this virus a lot more seriously.
