The head of the Duggars family, Jim Bob is not just hated for the show but for several reasons.
Jim Bob and his wife Michelle started off their family with very decent circumstances but things took a quick turn for this couple as they became parents of 19 kids.
Jim was once a state senator which helped him gain all the fame that he enjoys now. Following the stardom, the Duggars family are always in the center of controversies over the years. There is not a single thing that we can pinpoint what they have accumulated the hate for, the list just goes on.

Here we are not judging anyone, all the claims are coming from JB's neighbors but, was it fair for him to judge so harshly? Well, all those claims are valid for some reasons too.
One of the reasons, which is the most prominent one indeed, is buying up the large expanse of land for commercial use. It has frequently caused Jim to a confrontation with his neighbors and the Duggars family is largely involved in selling and buying of used cars as well.
The locality in which the Duggars family lives is basically a pretty conservative one. They are often reluctant to changes but Jim Bob's real estate and cars selling businesses typically require acquiring and selling large pieces of land which caused more conflict than ever.
Once Jim bought a large piece of land with the intention to open an RV Park and ran into a conflict with several of Springdale residents. Apparently, people did not like the idea of using the land for such use; disturbing the quiet, forested area, and they subsequently filed lawsuits accusing Jim Bob of violating local zoning ordinances.
