Michelle Duggar is facing major backlash after sharing an untimely social media post.
The 19 Kids and Counting alum, 55, took to Facebook on Sunday, November 21 to promote an audiobook titled We Will Not Be Silenced: Responding Courageously To Our Culture’s Assault on Christianity — but some social media users couldn’t help but notice the controversy surrounding the book’s title.
“I just finished listening to this audiobook!” she penned in a message on the Duggar family Facebook account. "This powerful book by Dr. Erwin Lutzer has been extremely helpful and thought-provoking. I highly recommended it for every Christian in America.”
Users swarmed the comment section to voice the contradictory nature of the former reality star’s post considering her son Josh Duggar’s upcoming trial for child pornography charges. (Josh, 33, was arrested back in April and has been charged with two counts of possessing and receiving child pornography.)
Followers online didn’t hesitate to call out Michelle for her post in light of the trial — and especially in reference to allegations that Josh allegedly molested five minors, including four of his sisters.

“What about the assault on your daughters by your son?,” one angry user commented on the post, “You are both a joke as parents.” Another suggested, “Maybe look for some books related to dealing with trauma” in reference to the two daughters who Josh allegedly assaulted while they were sleeping.
One person claimed to be “disgusted” by the post and the family’s attempt to “play the victim,” while another user joked: “Michelle Duggar can read a book, but she clearly cannot read a room.”
As OK! previously reported, Josh recently scored a major victory ahead of his upcoming trial after the judge granted his request to bar his former admission of a porn addiction from being used against him in court.
While the former TLC star admitted in 2015 that he was “addicted” to porn, the court banned the statement from being used in the trial after Josh’s legal team argued it was “irrelevant” to the current charges.
It has not yet been revealed whether or not the 2006 police report of Josh’s past molestation scandal will be allowed in court. While he was never charged for the allegations, the prosecution wants the jury to be aware of the past incidents in the hopes of proving “motive” and “lack of mistake.”
