JESSA Duggar slammed a "rude" fan who claimed that she was supposedly only posting cute videos of her kids in order to "distract" from her brother Josh's recent scandal.

Jessa, 29, shared an adorable video of her kids unwrapping their Christmas presents on Youtube. 

The Counting On alum and her husband, Ben, had planned to celebrate the holidays by making trips and visiting both families. 

At the start of the nearly 17-minute clip, the reality star explained: "We thought it would be fun to set aside a day before all that to do our own little group."

She continued: "We're going to open some little presents."

The married couple is the parents of four children: sons Spurgeon, five, and Henry, four, and daughters Ivy, two, and Fern, four months.

Ivey showed off her "horsey" while Henry was excited about the watch gifted to him. 

The children appeared to be in good spirits after opening up their presents.

The TV star responded to a troll who slipped into the comments section and slammed her family video. 

The troll accused: "We know Jim Bob got you out there distracting us sis." along with a crying emoji.

The troll continued: "It's okay. We love you. Jessa, you are so pretty."

Jessa's response, which surfaced on Reddit, stated: "This is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard" with a laughing emoji. 

She added: "But thanks for softening your rudeness with a compliment."


At the start of December, Josh, 33, was found guilty of child pornography charges and taken into custody.

The son of father Jim Bob, 56, and mother Michelle, 55, had been arrested and charged back in April with receiving and possession of child pornography.

After the jury reached its verdict, the ex-TLC star could face up to about 20 years behind bars on each guilty count. He is expected to be sentenced in about four months.

Josh's lawyers though planned on appealing the case.


After her brother's conviction, Jessa and Ben shared their thoughts on the guilty verdict in an Instagram Story. 

Their statement read: "From the moment we learned of this case against Josh we have prayed that God would cause the truth to be made known, no matter what it was, and that the facts would be followed wherever they lead.

"We are grieved beyond words over the children exploited and abused in child sexual abuse material, and we are thankful for our justice system in its punishment of such evils."

The statement concluded: "Our hearts break for Josh's family and we ask your continued prayers for them in the unfathomable grief and pain they are enduring."
