Uh Oh! It appears as if the infamous Duggar family loves controversies. And TLC fans are sure now. Hence, they are always landing themselves in trouble. Lately, there has been an uproar by the fans over Counting On couple Josh and Anna Duggar’s newborn daughter. Some deem their child’s name to be highly problematic. However, there are others who are calling it a very well-planned PR stunt. So what’s exactly going on? Wonder no more! Here’s the latest tea.
Counting On: Josh Duggar & His Wife Named Their Newborn ‘Madyson’
Although the couple’s 7th baby arrived towards the end of October, they announced her birth very recently, i.e., three weeks since the delivery. They decided to name their child ‘Madyson’ Lily Duggar. It took no time for fans to relate their new kid’s first name to the cheating scandal Josh was a part of. Well, it turns out there is a website by the name of ‘Ashley Madison’ that lets people in married relationships cheat on their significant others. In 2015, the site’s client listing had been leaked after a hack. None other than Josh Duggar was revealed to be a member of the site with a paid account. Hence, viewers unleashed hell on the couple over the poor name choice.
Redditors shared their 2 cents on the matter while calling out the Duggar family. Some of them expressed that there are so many other names starting from ‘M’ that the family could have chosen. One account pointed out that it’s “baffling” to think that the couple would be reminded of the notorious cheating scandal whenever they address their youngest child. Another profile observed that this incident is far from being a mere “coincidence.” Overall, Counting On viewers remain majorly outraged over this shocking name reveal.
Counting On: This Inappropriate Baby Name Is Most Likely A PR Stunt
While some watchers were busy shunning Counting On stars, some were thinking deeply about this controversy on the Internet. Eventually, they came to a conclusion and revealed what they felt was the actual reason behind the Duggar parents choosing such a problematic name. According to some Redditors, it is a well-planned PR stunt. That’s because if one looks up the name Madyson, they would be taken to the sites talking about the cheating scandal. However, Josh Duggar has a ton of criminal cases trailing behind him. This includes the latest child pornography charges against him. Hence, the family probably believes Josh being shown as a cheater rather than a child molester is a better circumstance.
Many netizens have been stating that their lawyers are devising these strategies ahead of Josh’s court hearing scheduled at November end. In April 2021, the Counting On celebrity was under arrest for possessing and receiving child pornography content. This news came a week after Anna Duggar’s pregnancy announcement. He was then released in May. The eldest Duggar son pled ‘not guilty’ for the charges, following which a trial was scheduled in July. However, it got postponed to November 30, 2021.
