A Los Angeles donut company is receiving criticism and praise after dumping a Christian reality television star who had partnered with them to promote their product.
Fonuts partnered with Jinger Dugger Vuolo this month to release a special “Jingerbread” donut that she promoted on her social media accounts, InTouch Weekly reports. But after a backlash over her involvement, Fonuts apologized and ended the relationship.
Dugger, the daughter of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, is known for her appearances in 19 Kids and Counting and Counting On. She is married to former professional soccer player Jeremy Vuolo, and the couple lives in Los Angeles.
Fonuts did not explain its decision in detail, although Dugger’s critics had pointed to the family’s Bible-based beliefs on homosexuality.
“We apologize for our recent poor choice of promotional partner. We were shocked and dismayed to learn about who we were associating with,” the Fonuts statement reads. “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. 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.”
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
