Justin and Claire Duggar torn for cooking ‘dry’ Thanksgiving turkey after fans criticized brother for posing with dead deer


Hopefully the Duggar family weren’t planning on having a juicy turkey for Thanksgiving.

The reality TV clan shared photos from their dinner party, and Reddit users filled the comments section with jokes about the dry-looking bird.

The first post summed it up best: “It’s a turkey that looks like a dry ass (the bird, not Justin).”

Others followed with comments such as, “This turkey looks like begging for a glass of water” and “The poor thing crawled several miles down the Mojave Highway.”

The family shared photos on Instagram of everyone who showed up a day earlier to help prepare dinner, along with a special thank you note:

“Today everyone was on deck preparing our Thanksgiving meal! We have staples that we bake every year, like our favorite homemade buns!

Can’t wait to try everything tomorrow with friends and family! Happy Thanksgiving! “

While fans had fun with the turkey, many are still furious at the photo of a smiling Jackson kneeling on top of a deer he shot.

In the Instagram photo, the 17-year-old smiled as he lifted the dead animal’s head by its antlers as his rifle rested on the male’s body.

The image was captioned: “Jackson had a nice nap on Saturday, the opening day of gun season here in Arkansas!”

“We have already enjoyed some of the meat from his harvest! The dried deer meat is one of our favorites.

“Jackson is a good marksman and also becomes a great cook!”

But fans have screamed scandal over the fatal shot, many disapproving in the comments section, sharing varying lengths of “No”

One follower exclaimed, “You all have to do without social media for a minute .. feel the coin!”

While another replied, “Sorry, no congratulations from me.”

A third simply noted that the photo was “Graphic and cruel.”


This holiday season is especially dark for the family, as it comes a few days before their brother Josh’s trial date.

Duggar’s older brother Josh, 33, is currently housebound until his trial on November 30 and cannot spend the holidays with his underage siblings, nieces and nephews amid his child pornography charges.

The troubled son won’t even be at the family’s dinner table, as he currently lives with third-party caretakers LaCount and Maria Reber, who are longtime friends of the family pending his upcoming trial.


In April, Josh pleaded not guilty to two counts of child pornography.

He was charged with possession and receipt of child pornography images.

Homeland Security Special Agent Gerald Faulkner told a court hearing in May that downloads from a specific file were “in the top five of the worst worst I’ve ever had. had to consider “.

Josh’s trial could last until December 3.

The Sun revealed exclusively from court documents that the state was planning to use its past assault scandal, which he had never been charged with, during the trial and was seeking permission from the court.

In 2015, a police report was released revealing that her father Jim Bob confessed to local authorities that Josh fondled the breasts and genitals of five young girls while they slept in the family home in 2006.

The state plans to use the police report at trial because it shows its alleged “sexual interest in young girls.”

Josh has defended himself against the prosecution being able to mention the indecent assault scandal, as a judge will rule on the argument next week.

Recently, during a hearing in federal court, the prosecution mentioned that Josh’s father would be one of their proposed witnesses.
