'Gossip Magazines' Go Apoplectic After Reality Star Poses With Gun
19 Kids and Counting star Jessica Duggar is being targeted by "gossip magazines" for a photo in which she posed with a gun.
According to Newsbusters.org, "Radaronline, National Enquirer, Examiner, Hollywood Gossip, and Stars" have published the photo of Duggar holding what appears to be an AR-15.
The photo was originally posted to Facebook by her boyfriend Ben Seewald, whom Radaronline described as "gun-loving and abortion hating."
Newsbusters contends that the goal of Radaronline was to be sure the world knows "Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar...aren't like us sophisticates." Rather, they are "making sure their children are following in their traditional footsteps."
Examiner.com seemed surprised that Seewald would post the photo to begin with: "Ben didn't seem ashamed at all to post the picture."
Every gossip magazine that posted the photo made sure to mention that Duggar and Seewald are pro-life.
