TLC's response to Josh Duggar confession will disappoint fans of the show
Hey, Duggar fans, it looks like you're going to have to say goodbye to 19 Kids and Counting — at least for a while.
Following Josh Duggar's confession that he allegedly molested several young girls, some of whom are believed to be his sisters, there has been public outrage. And now TMZ reports that TLC has just pulled all airings of 19 Kids and Counting from its lineup.
According to TMZ, sources familiar with the show have revealed that its fate is still uncertain, and that the network has not yet made a long-term decision. But following the backlash that TLC has been receiving since Josh's confession, it does not look good for the show.
TLC took even more heat after they made the decision to run a 19 Kids and Counting marathon Thursday, which prominently featured Josh.
Even Here Comes Honey Boo Boo matriarch Mama June took to Twitter to blast TLC for their blatant double standards after they ran a 19 Kids and Counting marathon amid the scandal, when they had pulled her show after it was revealed she had ties to a convicted child molester — although she denies that she was dating him.
TMZ also reports that a rep for General Mills told them that they have already blacklisted the show and removed it from their company's current advertising schedule.
UPDATE: TLC confirmed they have pulled 19 Kids and Counting from their lineup. "Effective immediately, TLC has pulled all episodes of 19 Kids and Counting currently from the air," the network announced in a statement. "We are deeply saddened and troubled by this heartbreaking situation, and our thoughts and prayers are with the family and victims at this difficult time."
