Anna Duggar ... well, it's safe to say that her life has been a little complicated for the past few years.
Ever since it was revealed that her husband, Josh Duggar, had molested five young girls when he was a teenager, things haven't been easy for her.
Which, you know, makes sense.
Back in 2015, the news about Josh came out, and it was an absolute mess, to say the least.
Michelle and Jim Bob tried to make the situation seem not as bad as it was, which absolutely didn't work, and 19 Kids and Counting was canceled.
A few months after that we learned that Josh had also had an Ashley Madison account, and that he'd been cheating on Anna, or at least trying to cheat on her.
In a statement about that part, Josh also admitted to being addicted to porn, so that's another fun little tidbit.
After that, Anna essentially went into hiding. She didn't appear much on Counting On or any of the family's social media accounts, not to mention her own.
She got a whole lot of backlash for staying with Josh after the Ashley Madison thing, and for potentially endangering her children.
Not leaving him was a way of supporting him, even after everything had come out, and many people didn't like that.
And that's basically why she hasn't made a post on her Instagram account in two years.
Until this weekend, that is.
Up until yesterday, her last post was in February of 2016, but then she posted this cute photo of two of her kids playing:
"Usually my boys are playing with blocks, hot wheels, and nerf guns," she captioned the picture. "Sometimes they decide to get creative 'toys' -- stack 'em and then snack 'em! #creativity"
So that's pretty harmless, right?
Not so much.
Some people took issue with the fact that the boys are on the counter -- one person wrote "I love you and all, but why would you let your kids play on top of a counter top like that?"
Others were upset that Anna didn't post any pictures of her daughters, and one of her followers even asked if the girls were "allowed" to play like the boys.
But, of course, the main issue wasn't with this particular picture, but with Josh.
"I don't see your little girls in the picture," someone told her. "I hope someone besides your cheating, molesting husband is watching them."
"Please keep a careful, watchful eye on your kids both boys and girls," another instructed.
One particularly passionate person commented with "Have you finally realized that there is no hope for cheaters and especially molesters???"
"Incestuous molestation at that..glad you have your children..but please move on and don't bring anymore into the world with your sick hopefully soon to be Ex husband. HE TRIED TO RUIN YOU."
Then, on a bonus photo Anna posted, one of adorable little Mason, she got more criticism.
"You continue to have babies with that cheating incest molesting husband of yours," someone began over in that comment section. "Smh .... what did he say 3 hali Mary's and u turned around and forgave him all willy nilly......"
"Set an example to your daughters for peets sake to be a strong woman...your families females being subservient to the man makes you ladies look weak which is something the movement is fight against..."
Whatever movement this person is talking about surely isn't of interest to the Duggar clan, but that doesn't mean she doesn't have a point.
It is kind of bizarre how Anna is still pretending everything is fine after what Josh has done -- or at least it would be in a normal marriage.
But of course at this point, we all know how far the Duggars are from normal.

In just a few short weeks, we will be receiving such a delightful, exciting gift ...
And that gift is the premiere episode of the new season of Marriage Boot Camp!
This season, we're most excited to see Amber Portwood work through her issues with Matt Baier, because even though their relationship obviously didn't work out, there's still a lot we'd like to know about their breakup.
We're also dying to see if Andrew Glennon, her new boyfriend/baby daddy and a crew member for Marriage Boot Camp, makes any sort of cameo.
Plus, if you know Amber, then you know that she's completely incapable of not bringing the drama, right?
And thanks to this special little sneak peek of what has to be some of her most explosive scenes, we know that she really, really brought it.
The clip begins with sirens and flashing text that reads "Amber Alert," which is in kind of poor taste, considering what Amber Alerts actually are, but we get it.
Next, we see her hitting a punching bag with a baseball bat, then she yells "F-ck you, bitch!" at someone -- it looks like her mother.
"Do I look f-cking high?!" she screams at someone else.
Later, Amber tells Brandi Glanville to "shut the f-ck up before I flip this f-cking table against your goddamn head," and while we don't know the context, it does seem to be a bit of an overreaction.
In another scene, this one with Matt, she tells him that he's a "piece of sh-t," to which he responds with an incredulous "really?"
"Why do you think I'm so angry?" she asks. "Because you hit me!"
So there's basically two things this could mean.
One, they did one of those therapeutic exercises that they do on the show, he accidentally hit her during it, and thanks to her clear anger issues during this time, it set her off.
Two, he was physically abusive to her during their relationship.
Unfortunately, there is some evidence to that second option -- for example, last summer, right around the time she would have been filming this, she admitted in an Instagram rant that she'd been the victim of domestic violence.
"I've been through domestic violence," she said then. "I was the one on the other f-cking end with the domestic violence -- it went both ways."
"However," she added, "I never opened my motherf-cking mouth about anybody ever f-cking hitting me! Anybody! Because that's what a real f-cking woman does!"
"That's what a real woman does. I can f-cking take that!"
Obviously that's not true, and it's really truly awful to state that "real women" don't seek help if they're being abused.
But Simon Saran, Farrah Abraham's sometimes boyfriend, claimed that this was true -- he even specified that "Matt has punched her on several occasions."
At the very least, we know that Amber is prone to violent relationships, because we saw her beat Gary Shirley more than once in the early seasons of Teen Mom.
There were also rumors that Amber was abusive to Matt, complete with a photo of Matt's injuries that he claimed were from a separate incident altogether.
It's all very, very suspicious, isn't it?
Check out Amber in action in the video below:

Kim Cattrall was known on Sex and the City for portraying a character who always spoke her mind.
And it's now evident that that the role of Samantha Jones was a bit of type-casting, considering the simple and direct share Cattrall just hurled in the direction of a former co-star.
In a very straightforward Instagram message shared on Saturday morning, for ex-HBO star addressed Sarah Jessica Parker, the former lead on the series that made both women very rich and very famous.
"My Mom asked me today "When will that @sarahjessicaparker, that hypocrite, leave you alone?" opened Cattrall on social media.
She then set her sights specifically on Parker and wrote:
"Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now. Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven't already):
"You are not my family. You are not my friend.
"So I'm writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your 'nice girl' persona."
The bold up above is our own because thought these words required emphasis.
There had long been rumored tension between Cattrall and Parker, dating back to when the actress co-starred on Sex and the City the TV show.
They put aside their differences for many seasons, however, and then also through a pair of movies.
But everything blew up publicly last fall after Parker told Extra that a script had been penned for Sex and the City 3 and that everyone was on board to film...
... except for Cattrall.
She referred to this hold out as "disappointing."
Cattrall then took exception to Parker taking her beef public, considering Kim says she was never, ever open to shooting another movie.
She held no bitter feeling. She even encouraged producers to find another actress for Samantha.
She had simply moved on -- and here was Parker, taking her to task for simply making a personal and professional decision.
"At this very moment it's quite extraordinary to get any kind of negative press about something that I've been saying for almost a year of 'no' that I'm demanding or a diva," Cattrall told Piers Morgan in an interview last October, adding of Parker in particular:
"And this is really where I take to task the people from Sex and the City and specifically Sarah Jessica Parker, in that I think she could have been nicer."
So it was obvious at that time that the stars weren't very close.
In response to the tragedy, Parker wrote the following on Instagram:
Dearest Kim, my love and condolences to you and yours and Godspeed to your beloved brother. Xx.
This appears to be the basis for Cattrall's latest message.
She feels as though Parker wasn't being sincere, pretending as if she and Cattrall were good friends when, in reality, they are anything but.
Wrote Cattrall shortly after she learned of her brother's death:
"It is with great sadness that myself and my family announce the unexpected passing of our son and brother, Chris Cattrall.
"At this time we ask for privacy but we want to thank you all on social media for your outpouring of love and support in this trying time."
Did Parker mean well with her Instagram reply to this confirmation?
Or was she exploiting the sad situation for PR sake, to make it look like she's a caring individual when, according to Cattrall, there's no relationship of any kind about which Parker should care.
It's clear on which side of this debate Cattrall falls.
And it's also now VERY clear that there will no Sex and the City 3, not with Cattrall as Jones at least.
