Is Michelle Duggar turning into a stage mom? has learned that fans are furious that the youngest Duggar family member, Josie, 8, is being pushed into the spotlight.

Fans, however, were not pleased at the news. Some pointed blame at Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar for profiting off of their daughter's performances.

"Got to pay the bills. OY!" one frustrated Facebook user wrote.

Another angry fan also accused the Duggars of being money hungry.

"Maybe a family who believes in God should sing our National Anthem and not a member of a family who worships $$$$. Their god is green with numbers on him," wrote the user.

As readers know, in addition to Josie, Michelle and Jim Bob's daughters, Johannah, 12, Jennifer, 11, and Jordyn, 9, as well as Josh and Anna Duggar's daughter, Mackynzie, 8, released a CD in August.

The CDs ranged between $10-15.

But another concerned fan seemed to think Josie didn't deserve to be booked for a solo performance.

"I think there are children who have much better voices than hers who would love to have an opportunity like that," said the Facebook user.
