‘Counting On’: Fans Think Jeremy Vuolo’s Outfit Just Sent a Strong Message About His and Jinger Duggar’s Views

Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo have been regarded as the most mainstream Duggar couple. The two have been living in California for a little more than a year, and fans believe they think differently than the rest of the Duggar family. Plus, Jeremy Vuolo’s recent outfit has caused a stir on Duggar’s Instagram page, with some believing he was sending a message to the LGBTQ+ community.

Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo are rumored to have more accepting views than her family

When Duggar and Vuolo married in 2016, they immediately moved to Laredo, Texas, to start a new life together. This pulled Duggar out of the bubble in which she was raised, giving her a more worldly view than the sheltered lifestyle her parents had given her. Jeremy Vuolo, though homeschooled for most of his life, was given the opportunity to attend college and play professional soccer, which helped expand his world views.

It’s been suggested that Vuolo’s brother has more liberal beliefs than him, and from what we know, Duggar gets along well with her brother-in-law. It has even been rumored that Duggar congratulated her brother on producing a film about an immigrant struggling with their transgender identity. Now, fans think Duggar and Vuolo have outwardly expressed their support for the LGTBQ+ community based on Vuolo’s recent accessory choice.

Fans are convinced Vuolo just gave a shoutout to the LGBTQ+ community

On Oct. 12, one day after National Coming Out Day, Duggar posted a photo alongside her husband captioned, “I love this guy,” with Vuolo tagged. But fans couldn’t help but notice something else: Vuolo’s rainbow tie, which seemed precisely timed with the LGBTQ+ holiday. Fans took it as a hint that he was showing support for the group.

“Love the neck tie. Sincerely, a lesbian,” one fan wrote. “That tie alone made my heart happy,” another user commented. “I love his tie!” another user wrote, complete with a rainbow emoji. Vuolo and Duggar did not comment on any of the replies to the tie, and one user asked them to “clarify” its meaning after some felt the tie symbolized a message from God rather than support for the LGBTQ+ community.

Some fans think people think the tie held a different meaning

While it remains unclear what Vuolo’s tie symbolized, if anything, others felt it was referencing a message from God. “The rainbow is God’s promise to never flood the earth again. Read Genesis 9,” one user wrote. “A tie that represents God’s promises! Love it!” another person commented.

Others felt fans were reading far too into the outfit and suggested it held no significant meaning. “People… can a tie just be a tie!” one person wrote. “It’s just a tie … Y’all gotta calm down,” someone else said. “That doesn’t look like a pride tie to me. It looks like a handsome striped tie in Autumn colors,” another user commented.

Vuolo has received backlash in the past for his views on gay marriage, though it’s unclear if the couple’s views have changed over the past few years. It’s possible that living in several cities has opened their eyes to all walks of life and that they’ve become more accepting of other people’s lifestyles. Still, fans can only speculate, as neither one has recently spoken out about their beliefs.
