Amy Duggar King is the first family member to comment on Jana Duggar’s legal woes. 

The Counting On star was charged with endangering the welfare of a minor child in September. She pleaded not guilty, and her next court date is in January. 

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have stayed quiet about Jana, and the siblings have as well. The entire focus has been on Josh Duggar’s guilty verdict. 

What did Amy Duggar King say about Jana? 

Taking to her Instagram story, Amy Duggar King sent a message to Jana Duggar, tagging her in the post. 

She shed some light on the situation which led to Jana’s charge. 

Amy wrote, “I will call out what is right and I will call out what is wrong. This couldn’t have been intentional. Thank God the child was ok and found! I bet you were exhausted, stressed, and just emotionally worn out. Watching multiple kids is hard! Bc there’s so many of them and you only have two eyes!! It’s a very sad situation going on and my heart goes out to @janamduggar love you.”

Now that the news is out about Jana’s charge, which happened three months ago, there are a lot of questions. Details surrounding the incident will be kept under wraps because the victim is a minor. 

Amy Duggar King is vocal about her famous family 

This isn’t the first time Amy Duggar King has talked about the drama from Duggars. Through Josh Duggar’s trial, she tweeted her thoughts but didn’t attend a single day of testimony. 

A social media feud broke out between Amy and Duggar friend, Laura DeMasie. The Duggar cousin called out Jana’s BFF and warned her about who she was working for. There wasn’t a response from Laura, and she didn’t heed the warning as she showed up for Josh’s trial with Jana and Jim Bob Duggar. 

Currently, Amy is under an NDA, and she has spoken about it, revealing she is “working on” breaking it. Followers are waiting for all of the Duggar tea, but in the meantime, she is throwing shade every chance she gets. 

Her relationship with Jana appeared to have been close when Amy was featured on the show, however, Jill Duggar is the one she is close to now. The cousins spent a lot of time together earlier this year, and she has been Jill’s biggest cheerleader as she breaks ties with her parents.

  1. Why is it amy is giving jana love but critizing josh. I know joshs thing is alot different than janas and still involves children but ttat is being a hypocrite supporting one cousin for endangering a child (probably one of her siblings kids she’s foreced to babysit ) and downing her perverted child molesting cousin. I like jana but amy needs to treat her like she does josh

    • Viewing photos and videos of children being abused is completely different from falling asleep from exhaustion and a small child getting outside the house. She shouldn’t even be charged (and I am NOT a fan of that family or their gross show).

    • No she doesn’t. Pedophilia is a sickness and harms children in ways that stay with them throughout their lifetime. If you don’t know the difference I suggest you do research before your next comment. In addition, he has been involved in inappropriate behavior since his teen years and protected.

  2. Large Christian Family seems now to be a target. Punish wrongdoing leave the others alone. Look at what’s going win the world. God says to examine yourself. That would put a stop to a lot if people were believers. What’s about to happen will bear witness to that last sentence.
