New Photo of Anna Duggar Has Fans Worried for Her Safety

Are things between this couple worse than ever? After the Duggar family posted a photo to Facebook, fans are questioning if Anna Duggar is the victim of domestic abuse.

Anna of course has been through hell the last year and and half, ever since it came to light that her husband Josh Duggar had molested four of his sisters plus an underage family friend as a young teen. Several months later, he was caught in the Ashley Madison hack, and admitted to cheating on Anna and their four kids.

Josh spent seven months in a faith-based rehab facility, where he was required to attend group therapy, read scriptures, pray, and participate in physical labor. Ever since he returned to the Duggar compound last spring, he and Anna have kept a low profile, although she has made a few public statements that she's continuing to stand by her man.

Maybe she shouldn't. Take a look at this photo posted by the family over the weekend of Anna out shopping with sisters-in-law Jill Dillard and Jinger Duggar, and see if you see what multiple fans pointed out.

 

If you look closely at the pic, it looks like Anna may have recently sustained some injuries, specifically a fat bottom lip, and a bruise near her left eye. One even wrote of her smiling face, "She looks too happy to have been punched in the eye or face."

Others came to Anna's defense, saying that people who saw signs of a abuse were just being judgmental. A commenter chimed in, "I don't see black eye cold sore or swollen lips and I zoomed in on the pictures I think they all look great ur not supposed to be judging what they look like."

Another pointed out that they wouldn't have posted the photo in the first place if they were trying to hide her wounds. "I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that, if something bad had happened to Anna (I think it's shadow on the eye), they wouldn't be taking her picture and posting it on social media," a defender added.

It's hard to tell what's going on from this pic, but we really hope that Anna gets some help if she's being physically abused -- help outside of the patriarchal enclave she's currently shackled in, that is. No amount of "standing by your man" is honorable when he hits you. Ever.
