Duggar fans blast pregnant Joy-Anna and her husband Austin Forsyth for ‘irresponsible’ decision in new video

Duggar fans blast pregnant Joy-Anna and her husband Austin Forsyth for ‘irresponsible’ decision in new video

JOY-ANNA Duggar has faced criticism after fans noticed her dangerous move while in the car with her husband, Austin Forsyth.

The Counting On alum shared a YouTube video on Saturday of the family’s 5th birthday festivities for their son Gideon.

Joy-Anna documented the days-long celebration, including a two-tier birthday cake, an indoor trampoline park party, and lunch at Olive Garden.

Afterward, the couple headed home with the birthday boy and their daughter, Evelyn, two, though fans spotted a concerning detail as Joy-Anna kept filming.

In a popular Duggar message board, eagle-eyed viewers spotted that neither the pregnant star nor her husband wore seatbelts as they drove out of the parking lot.

Their two kids were strapped into their car seats, despite their parents’ not following the same safety precautions.

One user shared screenshots, pointing out the “irresponsible” decision, prompting others to weigh in with their thoughts.

“I don’t…understand the mentality. It’s a seatbelt. It’s the simplest thing you can possibly do to prevent grievous bodily harm and death. It’s just a seatbelt.

“Why is it so difficult for them?” one person commented.

“I’m honestly just glad the kids seem to be properly strapped into their seats.,” another remarked.

“I cannot even fathom getting in a car and not putting on a seat belt. It’s like the most natural thing to do at this point,” stated a third.

And several others called the move “disgusting” and mentioned their other questionable choices as of late.


Joy-Anna, 25, and Austin, 29, are often getting flack from trolls about their parenting styles.

Just last week, they received backlash after the mom of two shared a snap of her kids playing in a bin full of dirty water.

Gideon appeared to have a black T-shirt on, while his sister Evelyn looked pool-ready in a pink floatation device.

The bin they were in was sitting outside on a grassy patch of land filled with what appeared to be brown water.

Joy-Anna captioned the post: “Added a few pots of boiling water to make it a hot tub.”

Fans were appalled with one addressing the pic on another online thread, writing: “Can we talk about how dirty the water is?

“Why does Evy have water wings on?

“And why can’t they each have their own clean tote of water?”

One commenter joked: “Arkansas hot tub.”

Another critic commented: “That’s disgusting-looking water. I have so many questions.

“Plus why add boiling water? It’s 70+ outside. Just put them in a bath they’d at least be in clean water.”

A third commenter wrote: “Joy’s content can be so trashy.”

Someone else chimed in: “I’m more concerned that she said she added pots of boiling water!”


Earlier that week, Joy-Anna again got hate for allowing her son to play with dangerous equipment after sharing a photo of him sitting on dad’s lap while riding on a piece of machinery.

She captioned the post: “Gideon loves anything that involves heavy equipment.”

One critic commented: “We also have video evidence of this kid fooling around on tractors and stuff.”

Another sarcastically wrote: “Heavy equipment? Does that sound…safe?”

A third commenter added: “Joy, he is too small to be working with heavy equipment!”

Someone else wrote: “We tell our boy he got to drive the dump truck, but he obviously didn’t get to drive the dump truck. There’s a difference, Joy!”

Another hater chimed in: “How did he go from coloring outside the lines to operating ‘heavy equipment?’”

Joy-Anna and Austin will soon welcome another little one to their brood as they prepare for the arrival of their third child.

The pair announced they were expecting in October 2022 and revealed shortly after that they were having a boy.
