JILL Duggar has been slammed for pulling her protective face mask down to smell candles on a "cheap" date with her husband Derick.
The 29-year-old reality star had documented their outing to Walmart on her Instagram Story – but not everybody was impressed.
In the post, Jill has her mask pulled down so that her nose is exposed, while Derick still has his covered.
Both stars are holding up a candle as a prop, with Jill adding the caption: "Smelling candles is a great date thing…
"No money involved… Unless you buy them of course lol".
Sharing a screenshot of the post to Reddit, one critic wrote: "Seems odd to put your nose on objects during a pandemic."
A second agreed: "I’m annoyed that they probably didn’t buy any and just breathed all over them. You sniff it, you buy it."
One more argued: "You can actually smell candles through a mask. I’ve tried it."
A fourth slammed: "Why post this to social? She either doesn't know or doesn't care that she has her mask on improperly. Gross."
Another wrote: "I do not mean to be a cheap candle shamer, but removing your mask in a pandemic to smell what appear to be cheap ass grocery store candles?? WHY?"
Jill first found fame on as one of the children on reality TV show 19 Kids and Counting, which follows the lives of parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar and their 19 kids – nine girls and ten boys.
They are devout Baptists and the show frequently discusses values of purity, modesty, and faith in God.
All of the children are homeschooled, and access to entertainment such as movies and television is limited.
Jill then starred in Counting On, a spin-off series that follows the lives of the older Duggar children as they get married and start families of their own.
However, she quit the show in 2017 when network TLC cut ties with Derick for speaking against one of their other stars Jazz Jennings, with the transgender teen starring in I Am Jazz.
Jill and Derick married in 2014 and together are mom and dad to 7-year-old Israel and 3-year-old Samuel.
