A Duggar critic shared a video of Jim Bob and his kids going on a road trip from Arkansas to Disneyland in their 2006 show, On the Road with 16 Children.
In the clip, Jim Bob, his wife Michelle and their kids lined up outside of their motorhome wearing matching red shirts.
The patriarch began calling out his kids’ names as they hopped into the trailer.
He got through: “Johanna, Mama, Justin, James, Jeremiah, Jedediah…”
Jim Bob then skipped ahead and called out, “Josiah!” despite Jason – who is now 22 – standing right in front of him.
Realizing his mistake, he chuckled and added hastily: “Yeah, Jason too!”
The moment was slammed by critics on Reddit, with one writing: “JB forgets Jason exists.”
Another exclaimed: “The poor child was literally in front of him!!”
A third posted: “Is anyone surprised by the neglect? I’m more shocked that he can remember that many of their names!”
“This is also a ‘tell me you have too many kids without telling me you have too many kids,’” yet another user commented.
Jim Bob also came under fire earlier this week for dressing up in a “disrespectful” farmer costume at a family party in December.
The TLC star went to the Duggars’ annual holiday bash in a straw hat, shirt and wonky tie.
His son Jed shared a YouTube clip of the family dressing up in different outfits for their Christmas party in December 2022.
ed and his wife posted the video filming everyone’s reactions to the news that they’re expecting their second child together.
After telling Jed’s mom Michelle and his siblings, the couple went into the kitchen.
Jed asked, “Where’s the farmer?” before declaring, “There he is!” as Jim Bob walked into the room.
Critics claimed Jim Bob’s costume was “an insult to actual farmers.”
The backlash comes after Michelle shocked fans by “breaking her own rules” with a trip to the beach.
The 56-year-old was seen wearing a fully-covered outfit for a day out in the Bahamas in a resurfaced photo from 2017.
MICHELLE AT THE BEACH
Michelle wore a pink and gray long-sleeved top, a black skirt, tights, leggings, and black shoes while posing with a friend on the beach.
Her companion was significantly less covered up, wearing a plunging black romper over a black bikini.
The photo resurfaced on Reddit on Monday, where critics pointed out that Michelle had broken her dress code by rolling her sleeves up.
Michelle and Jim Bob’s strict modesty rules encourage women to cover their arms, legs, and cleavage by dressing very conservatively.
Michelle’s beach visit is also a surprise as she has previously said she avoids trips to the sea as it’s “hard for guys to keep their eyes averted” around bikinis.
In a 2012 blog post, the matriarch said: “In general we don’t do a lot of swimming events where swimsuits are worn because it’s just too hard for guys to try to keep their eyes averted in those situations.
“We have some friends who allow us to use their swimming pools. Or we sometimes visit a creek or a lake that’s private. And in those situations, the kids are always wearing modest clothes.”
