When a woman suffers a miscarriage, they are usually given condolences, love and support. That is, if you aren’t Michelle Duggar.
The 44-year-old reality TV star and matriarch of the Duggar clan (made up of Jim Bob, Michelle and their 19 kids) had a miscarriage on Thursday. This would have been her 20th child. The couple had gone to the doctor to find out the sex of their baby but when the doctor attempted to find a heartbeat, he could not. Michelle was six months pregnant.
As the news broke about this family tragedy, people do what people do these days. They go to Twitter. Some tweets were thoughtful and caring messages. But most? Most people took this opportunity to tweet things that run more snide, sarcastic and snarky.That’s just what happens when you live an unconventional life and share it with the world via TV.
