Jeremy Vuolo is in hot water after an insensitive tweet. While he deleted the initial post, the Counting On star did post an apology asking for forgiveness.

Social media is a big deal for Jeremy and Jinger Duggar. The two have used it to capitalize on audience reach, especially now that they have their own podcast.

What did Jeremy Vuolo do and say?

A few days ago, Jeremy Vuolo posted a video of a grasshopper being eaten by a dog. He joked about it and reportedly asked followers if they would rather drown in a pool or be eaten by the jaws of a dog.

At first, Jeremy didn’t see the grave misstep he made.

UPDATE: The judge released Josh from prison as he awaits trial. He is to stay with third party custodians described as “close friends” of the family.  The judge granted him “unlimited contact” with his children as long as Anna is present.  He may not see any other minor child. 

Too famous to be a flight risk? That's what Josh Duggar's defense attorneys are arguing as he awaits his bail hearing, scheduled for today at 1:30 pm local time.⁠
⁠
Reasons given for not being a flight risk include his recognizable face from his stint on 19 Kids and Counting and the fact that he knew he was under investigation since November 2019 and didn’t run away. Josh reportedly wants bail to be home with his pregnant wife, Anna. However, the judge has already noted that Josh would not be allowed minor children, which obviously conflicts with Josh's request. ⁠

Last year, Grandma Mary Duggar died by drowning in her own pool in the backyard of her home. It happened after she had been to church with the family. While the details surrounding what happened are fuzzy, it was devastating for the entire Duggar family.

On Twitter, Jeremy Vuolo issued an apology and revealed he had already asked for forgiveness from Jinger Duggar and his in-laws, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar.

Jeremy Vuolo is a reformed bad boy

When it was revealed that Jinger Duggar was dating a man who had been worldly, Counting On viewers were shocked. Jeremy Vuolo wasn’t the type of man that anyone expected her to marry, but he was the right person for her.

He came into the fold because of Ben Seewald and Jessa Duggar. They set them up, and the rest is history. Jeremy has been arrested before and even talked about his experience with premarital sex.

Things between the two have been going well except for social media influencer posts. Jinger Duggar has lost several partnerships because of her beliefs and being a part of the Duggar family. Jeremy is busy with school and work, leaving her to figure things out for Felicity most of the time.

With another baby on the way, Jeremy Vuolo would do well to watch what he says. He didn’t think the grasshopper video through properly, and in that process, had followers questioning his motives and insensitivities.

Drowning in a pool is the way Grandma Mary Duggar passed, and that wrecked the entire family. They weren’t prepared for a moment like that. Jeremy making light of drowning wasn’t intentional, but it struck a chord that can’t be taken back.

Counting On airs Tuesday nights at 9/8c on TLC.
