The reason people are slamming Michelle Duggar’s leniency letter isn’t what you’d expect

The headline scandal surrounding Josh Duggar will soon come to an end. On May 22, the oldest of the “19 Kids and Counting” family will be sentenced for his conviction for sexual abuse of material possessions. Per 4029TVJosh faces up to 20 years in prison, and this fate seems quite likely, given both his crime and his past of abusing four of his own sisters (via e! Online

The ordeal seems to have split the once tight-knit Duggar family. Several of Josh’s sisters have convicted their brother for his heinous crimes. Jinger Duggar Vuolo called the verdict fair and went so far as to suggest that Josh might go to hell. Jill Duggar Dillard and her husband posted their response to their websiteand said, “No one is above the law,” and offered their prayers for Josh’s family and for all victims of child abuse.

However, other family members are behind the disgraced Duggar. Among them are his wife, Anna, and his mother, Michelle Duggar. Both women recently wrote letters to the presiding judge, asking for leniency in sentencing. Without a crystal ball placed the letters on Instagramwhere they get a lot of responses for both expected and surprising reasons.

Michelle Duggar’s signature raised a lot of eyebrows

Hoping to influence the judge who will pronounce Josh Duggar’s sentence, mother Michelle Duggar wrote a letter of praise. She said Josh has “a tender heart,” pointing out all of his good qualities: his generosity, work ethic, financial sanity, and love for his seven children. “As I look forward to his return, I stand ready to offer my abiding love and encouragement to Joshua and his family and for their future success – together!” she wrote. “We ask that he be reunited with his wife and family in a timely manner.”

A mother’s love is one thing, but online critics felt that Michelle went too far in supporting the son who was not only caught with hundreds of explicit images on his computer, but also did violence to his own sisters. Many who responded to the after On Without a crystal ball were outraged that Michelle showed no compassion for all the victims he had hurt. “It’s all such a slap in the face to the girls (and ALL the kids) who have been ABUSED!” was a response.

They also noticed another strange detail on the letter: the signature “Michelle A. Duggar” was written with a small heart above the “i”. Instagram went into a tizzy: “I also did the heart over the ‘i’… in 4th grade!” said one user. Another added: “I still don’t believe Michelle did. In a letter to a judge, no less!”
