Jinger Duggar & Jeremy Vuolo slammed for releasing children's book after her brother Josh's child pornography arrest

COUNTING On's Jinger Duggar and her husband Jeremy Vuolo revealed their 'big announcement' on Instagram yesterday.

After teasing the news, the couple shared they had published a children's book, but fans slammed them as 'disturbing' for releasing the book after her brother Josh's pornography arrest.

Jinger posted on Instagram to share the bright and cheery cover artwork of the book and the title: You Can Shine So Bright!

She wrote a length caption detailing how important reading to their children as they go to bed is to the couple and that having the book published "has been so fun and a dream come true."

While comments showered in from fans congratulating Jinger and Jeremey – including a kind comment from sister Joy Duggar – other fans took to Reddit to express some skepticism around the timing of the release.

One fan wrote in the Reddit thread about the book release: "In light of recent events, this book just screams 'desperate attempt at fixing our image now that my brother(-in-law) will soon be convicted for downloading and possessing CSA."

The fan continued: "I'm well aware of the fact that Jinger should not be dragged into her brother's mess but it just seems very ill timed."

Another agreed, adding: "It's just really tone dead."

A third commented: "Well, that was….. underwhelming."

A fourth said: "I just did the biggest eye roll I hurt myself."

Yet a fifth wrote: "This is disturbing."


Yesterday, The Sun exclusively revealed that Josh faced a new blow in his child pornography case, as the government demanded to keep his computer before the trial.

From Josh’s now-closed used car lot Wholesale Motorcars, the Government seized his HP Desktop Computer All-in-One, Apple iPhone, MacBook Pro, Digital Video Recorder Drive, 8GB thumb drive,16 GB SD Card, an 8GB Micro SD Card and a 4 GB Thumb Drive, according to court papers. 

Homeland Security raided the dealership in November 2019 as part of the federal investigation. 

The Sun can exclusively reveal the government filed a “notice of its intention to seek the forfeiture of the following property: HP Desktop All-In-One,” court papers from November 1 state. 

The government is essentially requesting the court keep the property once seized.


Josh pleaded not guilty to the two child pornography counts. 

The trial has been set for November 30 and has the potential to last until December 3. 

The Sun previously reported Josh had until October 18 to accept a plea agreement and change his non-guilty plea. 

No change of plea was filed. 

If Josh files a change of plea after October 18, it will be considered an “open plea,” meaning he will plead guilty without the benefit of a plea agreement.

The court, however, could grant an exception if they are able to show good cause up to 10 days before trial. 


Jinger's mother, Michelle Duggar, was snubbed by her kids on social media on her 55th birthday back in September.

The former 19 Kids and Counting star was seen in a photo posted by son Joseph Duggar, with one of her grandkids on her lap.

Joseph captioned the photo "Happy birthday momma."

It seems that Joseph was one of only two Duggars to publicly wish Michelle a happy birthday on Monday.

Jinger also reportedly shared a message for Michelle.

Michelle along with husband Jim Bob, 56, are devout christians and parents to 19 children who all featured on the TLC show 19 Kids and Counting.

The show ran from 2008 until its cancellation 2015, when eldest son Josh's molestation scandal was made public.

Spinoff Counting On focused on the older Duggar kids but was canceled this year in the wake of Josh's arrest for allegedly possessing child pornography.

Several of the couple's older kids have tried to distance themselves from Michelle and Jim Bob following Josh's arrest.
