Do you agree with Montel Williams' opinion on the Duggar scandal?

19 Kids and Counting parents Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar sat down with Fox News' Megyn Kelly on Wednesday night to share their side of the story about their oldest son, Josh Duggar's molestation scandal.

Taking to Facebook, Williams wrote a lengthy post addressing the problems he had with the interview and how he believes that the Duggar parents are in "denial."

"After watching the Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar interview, I'm just stunned. They are in denial. Do I feel for their predicament as parents, of course, do I feel for their daughters of course, I am the father of 3 daughters," he began.

"They are in the predicament they are in because a) they attempted to sweep it under the rug, and b) they chose to preach holier than thou against everyone from #‎lbgt to people that allow their kids to date," Williams writes. "I don't get these people. I pray for them, but I'll never get how they seemingly don't get what was going on around them?"
