JOSEPH Duggar and pregnant wife Kendra have been slammed for going to Florida in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic.
The couple shared pictures from their family getaway on Instagram, but received a backlash from followers as daily cases of the deadly virus continue to soar.
Kendra cradled her baby bump in a sweet beach snap beside her sister in one shot.
In another she enjoyed an outdoor meal overlooking the ocean with Joseph.
The couple's two children – Addison, 10 months, and Garrett, two – looked to be having plenty of fun as they played on the beach.
However, not everyone was as happy about the situation, with one follower commenting: "I guess 50,000 new cases of COVID a day in the US means nothing to them."
Another sniped: "And no masks!!!"
While a third raged: "But wtf are they thinking? Going to Florida in a f**king pandemic? Especially when Kendra’s pregnant!! These people are so f**king stupid."
In mid July daily cases maxed out at just over 75,000 before gradually dropping to 25,000 by early September.
But they have been on the rise again and in the last few days have surpassed 50,000 daily cases. The death toll in the US from the virus is 214,000.
The Duggars did not break rules by traveling from their home in Arkansas to Florida as neither state has travel restrictions in place.
It's not the first time this year that the couple have been criticised for their parenting decisions.
In August they were called out for not putting Addison in a life jacket during a boat trip on a lake.
They were labelled "irresponsible" after sharing shots of Addison inside a laundry basket without a vest.
Around the same time, the couple announced they were expecting their third child – just months after welcoming Addison.
The couple revealed to PEOPLE in a statement that read: "We are so excited to announce that we have a tie-breaker coming in February. Baby #3 is on the way!"
The Counting On stars continued: "We are so excited to see Garrett and Addison’s reaction when they meet the new baby.
"Garrett has already been such a loving big brother to Addison and we look forward to Addison’s reaction to a life size baby doll.
"Life is full of surprises and we’re thrilled that it is a sweet baby that surprises us this time!"
These news comes just a few months after Kendra gave birth to their youngest daughter, Addison, back in November 2019.
Joseph, 26, and Kendra are also parents to Garrett, who was born in June 2018.
