Growing up in the Duggar Family meant living under very strict rules. It meant no television for the children, no modern-day music, and the girls had to dress a certain way while growing up.

This is what their daughter, Jinger Duggar had to live like while growing up. However, her husband, Jeremy Vuolo grew up in a very different environment with less strict parents. He was homeschooled for part of his childhood but also attended public school. He was also allowed to watch television and listen to modern-day music.

Vuolo also went to two different colleges including Hartwick and Syracuse. Because of Jinger Duggar being raised under strict rules and not being allowed to experience certain things while growing up, once she married Vuolo, she quickly adapted to his lifestyle and loves her new life.

Duggar and her husband, Jeremy Vuolo moved far away from the Duggar Family, all the way to California and they love their life there.

Now, because of being married to Vuolo and adapting to the modern-day lifestyle that he is more used to than she is, she listens to today's music and even shares her playlists from Spotify, which includes Ed Sheeran, on social media.

Duggar also now watches TV and often has it on in the background when posting to her Instagram story. She also wears modern-day clothing every day. She even goes out into the public with her husband and children and enjoys spending the day out with them. Many of her Instagram posts show her doing every day things all the time now that are normal to most of us, but wasn't normal to her when she was growing up in the strict Duggar home.

Kobe Bryant and his daughter, Gianna's Celebration of Life memorial service held at the Staples Center was highly televised on February 24. Because of this, Duggar was watching it just like almost everyone else around the country was.

She went on Instagram to share her tribute to Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna who were both killed, along with seven other victims, in a helicopter crash in January.

Jinger posted the words, "No words." with crying and heartbroken emojis following the comment.

Fans didn't take this lightly considering her strict upbringing of not being allowed to watch television. Many of them said that she didn't really know what she was talking about since she wasn't up-to-date with real-world events as much as most of us are.

One person said about the comment she made about Bryant, his daughter, and the rest of the people who died that day, "She just wants to show the world she watches TV now."

Another fan quickly added their two cents by criticizing her as well, “She thinks being a Lakers fan will get LA to love her. She’ll be disappointed."

Another one responded, “It’s a trendy move for her to jump on the ‘Mamba Love’ movement to look like she’s relevant."

Other people were quick to jump in suggesting that she and Vuolo were denouncing Catholics since they are Christians. Byant was Catholic and it is well-known that many Christians don't always agree with the Catholic religion.

One person commented, “Does she know that Kobe and his family are catholic?”

Another commenter wrote, “[Jeremy] was probably preaching in private that they’re in Hell for not being the right kind of Christians."

Another said, "This is so sad because it’s true."

Many people have called the Duggar Family out by calling them, hypocrites. Not many are buying that Duggar and her husband actually care about what happened to Bryant, his daughter, and the rest of the victims in last month's tragedy.
