Rebel James Duggar, 21, mocked for his cringe-worthy pose in new selfie after fleeing family home for wild ski trip

In it, James posed while on an airplane, rocking a black jacket and scrunching his face at the camera.

One fan reshared the pic on a popular Duggar forum, prompting many others to flood the thread with their thoughts.

“Why does he make this face every photo he takes?” one user asked.

“I think this is the look he is going for,” another replied.

“God this face is so cringe,” wrote a third.

Days earlier, online trolls poked fun at James for another post showing his “late night” antics, noting it was only 8pm in Arkansas.


The posts came after the 21-year-old jetted to Switzerland as part of a European getaway without his parents, Jim Bob, 57, and Michelle, 56.

He documented much of the trip, which he went on with a friend, on his Instagram Stories.

James’ first post showed him driving through a tunnel en route to his new location.

In a second clip posted just three hours later, he and his pal Elijah sat on the patio of a large restaurant/bar overlooking the mountains.

The pair were already decked out in ski gear and sunglasses and appeared to have water and a fizzy drink in front of them as they nodded to the loud music.

Next, Elijah posted a video of James sitting on the slopes, with a caption reading: “Absolutely amazing!!!”

James then posted a video from their shared hotel room, saying, “me and Elijah just sitting in our room…” and then panned around to show the view from the window.

Loud drums and brass instruments could be heard, with a huge crowd in costume proceeding down the street.

A sign advertising beer was attached to the building, suggesting the duo might be staying upstairs from a bar.

Elijah also captured a clip of the procession, exclaiming in his caption: “So apparently there is a carnival that happens only once a year and we are right in the middle of it!!!”

The carnival in question is called Schmutziger Donnerstag – or Fat Thursday – celebrating the last Thursday before Lent.

It’s marked as a feasting day, allowing revelers to fill themselves with treats forbidden throughout Lent.

As such, many of the costumed people involved will gorge on sugary foods, meat, and alcohol during the day.

Whether James participated in the festival is unclear, as he was raised to abstain from alcohol.


As part of Jim Bob’s rules, his children are expected to refrain from drinking alcohol.

However, James is on a rule-breaking spree, with even his trips to cities going against his parents’ conditions.

He previously shocked fans when he posted a snap of himself visiting a pub during his trip to London.

James’ travel buddy, Elijah, also recently went against the Duggar rules by sharing a shirtless selfie during a workout.

The Counting On alum and his 18 siblings are required to dress modestly according to their family’s strict guidelines.

His sisters, Jana, 32, Jill, 31, Jessa, 30, Jinger, 29, and Joy-Anna, 25, often defy their parents’ dress code, among other rules instilled throughout their conservative upbringing.
