On Thursday, Oct. 11, Jeremy tweeted a little-know fact about the famous patriarch: “My father-in-law often finds himself on the roadside helping stranded strangers who’ve had a flat tire or a mechanical breakdown.”
He continued, “I’ve often wondered how he’s always the first one on the scene. Then I realized: he’s not, he’s simply the first one willing to stop and help.”
Some fans loved hearing the positive tidbit about Jim Bob. “That speaks volumes not just of his compassion, kindness, & servitude, but of society as a whole…” one fan replied. “I love Jim Bob, such a kind soul. Love the entire family,” said another fan.
However, some fans weren’t as quick to buy what Jeremy was selling. “Is this what he tells you?!?!” one fan asked. Another fan slammed Jim Bob, recalling the family’s scandal with their eldest son Josh, who admitted to inappropriately touching his own sisters as a teenager.
“Good thing he was quick to report Josh to the authorities….oh waitttt,” a fan alleged. “He helped his son get away with molesting five girls, one of whom was only five years old! What a great guy!” claimed another fan in an emotional tweet.
