Commenters always seem to find something to complain about any time Jessa Duggar Seewald posts a photo on Instagram. She's come under fire for letting her kids use a cell phone, giving a haircut to her one-year-old, and even for having her kids in diapers. This week, the reality star put up a pic of her son Henry playing with her three-year-old niece, Meredith, the daughter of Josh and Anna Duggar. In it, Meredith was guarding a toy that a crying Henry tried to take from her. Jessa captioned the photo, "Merry Christmas from our family to yours! Hopefully, there is none of this going on at your house. The gifts are fun, and the food's gonna be great, but let's not forget the reason for the season." She then included some verses from the Bible.

Merry Christmas from our family to yours! Hopefully there is none of 👆🏽this going on at your house. 😆 The gifts are fun, and the food’s gonna be great, but let’s not forget the reason for the season. . For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. - Luke 2:11 . The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost. - 1 Timothy 1:15 . 16 "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. - John 3:16-18 . 6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. - Isaiah 9:6

Instead of just appreciating the Christmas wishes, plenty of Jessa's followers felt the need to point out that Meredith's feet were dirty:

Jessa wasn't going to take it and clapped back, commenting, "Mine look about the same. It's 60 degrees outside today. That’s barefoot weather."

She had a lot of support too, with lots of fans writing things like "Dirty feet are happy feet!!!" and "And? Kids get dirty. I'm sure her parents will make sure she bathes at the end of the day." 

The shamers probably won't keep Jessa from putting up more pics, and you can follow her here to see everything she posts.
