Donut Company Issues Apology And Ends Partnership With Jinger Duggar

Jinger Duggar won't be eating donuts anytime soon.

She was just let go from the partnership she had with an LA donut company and their reasons for dropping her are anything but sweet...

The hits for the Duggar family just keep on comin'.


A few weeks ago, it was reported that the former 19 Kids and Counting stars had their Arkansas home raided by U.S. Homeland Security.

And now, a donut company — of all things — has just ended their partnership with Jinger Duggar.

But first, about that reported home raid investigation...


Despite a Homeland Security Agent saying it did, indeed, happen, the Duggar family fervently denied the claims.

"We were shocked to see a news report today state that our home was raided by federal law enforcement agencies. This is not true," the family's statement to People said.

Still, if what happened was true, fans are suspicious that Josh Duggar, the eldest child in the family, has something to do with it.

This comes down to two main reasons: he's reportedly being sued for real estate fraud and second, his controversial past.

Back in 2015, it was shockingly confirmed that he had molested two of his sisters.

While this scandal was going on, another emerged.

When the "infidelity" website Ashley Madison was hacked into, Josh was revealed to be one of its famous members.

At this time, he was forced to apologize for cheating on his wife, Anna, and for having a porn addiction.

While this new scandal involving Jinger Duggar is much more innocent considering it involves donuts, it is just as abrupt as the others.

Basically, the partnership the Counting On star and her husband Jeremy Vuolo had with Los Angeles-based doughnut company Fonuts had ended.

Fonuts announced the decision in an Instagram post that said "please accept our sincerest apologies" written on one of the images.

"We apologize for our recent poor choice of promotional partner," began owners, Nancy Truman and husband Thom Furtado.

"We were shocked and dismayed to learn about who we were associating with. We recognize we really made a mistake by not properly researching them."

"We have ended our partnership with Jinger Vuolo and the company that introduced us."

They continued: "We would like you all to know, we promise to be more diligent in the future and will only work with people who truly represent our core values of kindness, inclusivity and transparency."

"We are so sorry, and we really hope you will forgive us for this mistake."

Their apology was met with mixed reactions.

One person commended the decision by pointing out the "problematic" behavior of Jinger's husband.

"Jeremy has openly stated he would not shake hands with a Catholic," one person wrote. "They are openly homophobic and transphobic. They are openly against the Mormon church."

A second user agreed:

"Jinger's family is very anti-LGBT community, very anti-choice and very anti-religious freedom."

The decision to end the partnership came with its benefits, such as helping the company gain new followers.

"Next time I'm in LA, I'm finding your shop and buying a dozen. Hate and bigotry doesn't pay," wrote someone else.

But they also lost some, too, as Duggar fans expressed their disappointment towards the decision.

"This is beyond dramatic. Also, not based on any fact whatsoever. How embarrassing," another wrote.

Others criticized the company for their lack of research from the get-go:

"I don’t understand how you didn’t know who you were partnering with. That whole family is pretty vocal and transparent regarding their beliefs and political stances," wrote another, along with an eye roll emoji.

With the couple also not attending the Rebecca Minkoff Mommy Pampering Event reception, the timing has left fans wondering if that partnership has ended as well.

The couple's reason for not attending is listed as being "due to personal circumstances" on the event's Eventbrite page.

While they can't attend, they did still encourage fans to donate to the "great cause."

Although Jinger has yet to comment on the situation, she has deleted the sponsored posts she made for the company on her Instagram.

Additionally, Jeremy appears to have done the same.

While we don't know if or when Jinger will respond, this much is probably true: we bet she won't be touching a donut anytime soon.
