Jill Duggar is at it again, you guys.
She's drinking again.
The former reality star stirred up quite a controversial several days ago when she shared a photo of herself and husband Derick Dillard at a restaurant -- with a beverage in her hand!
For most people, this wouldn't be a big deal. For most people, especially in this age of a pandemic, it would be quite understandable that someone might need a drink or two... dozen.
But Jill Duggar isn't most people.
She was raised a very strict and devoutly Catholic household and most of her relatives have shunned alcohol over the years.
"Date night with my favorite person @derickdillard," wrote Jill as a caption to the above photo of the twosome, adding:
"We’ve missed our regular date night outings during covid and have had lots of in home dates, but we were able to swap childcare with friends last night for a date!"
Along with a bunch of heart emojis, Jill included the following hashtags: #blessedbeyondmeasure #datenight #hubbytime #stillhoneymooning.
The response to this picture was overwhelmimg, and largely negative.
“She has a platform she uses on a daily basis to talk about Jesus and she can cause others to think He’s OK with you going out drinking and still being a Christian,” one critic wrote in response to Duggar imbibing.
“So disappointed…deep down you know God doesn’t want this,” another comment read, continuing as follows:
“Then you’re gonna turn around and talk about God to everyone tomorrow!”
Evidently aware of the backlash to her pina colada order, Jill took a moment to take note of these trolls on Thursday.
"Morning coffee date with my hubby @derickdillard (& Sam tagging along too)," Jill captioned a photo of herself and Derick showcasing their coffee cups for the camera on Instagram yesterday.
The 29-year old also made a point to confirm that her drink of choice, in this case, was strictly caffeinated.
"Oh, and since it seems y’all are interested in my choice of drinks recently (lol recent post)...yes, this was a REGULAR coffee (I.e. full caf) white chocolate mocha with coconut milk.," the mother of two joked.
In the past, Dillard has Tweeted that the bible may not encourage drinking... but the iconic book doesn't specifically discourage it, either.
“We don’t believe the Bible teaches that drinking is a sin,” Derick once told a fan who asked about his stance on alcohol.
“However, it does warn against/ condemn other aspects of alcohol.”
Jill, who has been wearing sexy swimsuits and seemingly distancing herself more and more from her controlling parents of late, did receive some support after the image of her getting wasted (just kidding) went viral.
"Everything in moderation," wrote one followers.
"And even Jesus drank wine. You are obviously not overindulging. Congratulations on making a life of your own. You are still doing what Jesus would do, so relax everybody!!!!!!"
"HELL YES JILL! Live yo best life girl!!!!"
