TLC Cancels "19 Kids And Counting"

In the wake of the Duggar family's admission that Josh Duggar (one of the eponymous 19 kids) molested young girls (including some of his sisters) in his past, TLC has pulled the plug on the network's hit reality show 19 Kids and Counting

TMZ broke the news Friday afternoon:

TLC has just pulled all airings of "19 Kids and Counting" from its lineup ... TMZ has learned.

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ, the fate of the show is uncertain, but there's now so much heat in the wake of Josh Duggar's molestation confession ... the network had to make the decision.

We're told they absolutely have not made a long-term decision, but it's clearly a bad sign for the show.

And there's this ... a rep for General Mills tells TMZ, they have already blacklisted the show and removed it from their company's current advertising schedule. 

As we reported, TLC ran a Duggar marathon Thursday, prominently featuring Josh. There was big backlash, not the least of which came from Mama June, who felt TLC was giving the Duggars a pass for far worse conduct than hers, which caused TLC to pull the plug on 'Honey Boo Boo.'

On Thursday, Josh resigned from his post with the anti-gay hate group the Family Research Council. During his tenure with the homophobic activist group, he took a page out of the family book by regularly villainizing all gay people as pedophiles who molest children.

They preach that gay people are perverts and dangerous around children--- Are you KIDDING me?! ..THEY are the perverts and dangerous around children!!! Well, they are, and the priests are, and the bigoted hateful people are, right along with the heads of this huge household. 

Calling it a 'mistake' is asinine. FIVE different girls were reported, four of whom were HIS younger SISTERS, including a 5-year-old toddler! What psychological COUNSELING AND REHABILITATION did he get to help him through his sinful desires and behavior? NOTHING. He just asked the lord to forgive him! Are you f--king kidding me? Meanwhile, the abused girls have to live with him and act lovingly toward him on a daily basis? WHAAAAT!?

​Then  he goes on a crusade, preaching to people how to live their lives. It's horrifying that they are held high in many people's minds. If these people were not "Christian," they would not have the sick twisted following that they have. ..Wow. Thank God this world is really changing, moving away from disgusting people who do NOT deserve attention or notoriety. Even a lot of reality shows are going down in popularity because the leads of the reality shows are talentless. Nobody like that deserves all that money either. F--K the hateful people of the world!!! (We should actually remember that some of the people in this family are abused victims. That is so so sad., and they have to live with them all. We should not condemn them all; only the rapists and abusers.) Honestly, the two parents are to take the load of the blame.

I always knew their family had some huge dark secret. Theirs is a family of hipcorites. TLC should not only cancel their show but burn all copies of past episodes, and the US justice system should get involved and put him behind bars where he belongs.

Their indignation at having a same sex couple kiss in their challenge but harbouring a child molester is OK????? Or preaching abstinence (?) with a molester in the family...If it were my child who molested his sister(s) and others-the story would not have been the cover up but the rough justice i dealt out.

The hell with all the talk about who did this and that or who has been taken off the lineup. Why have we not heard about the kids that are still under age. Has Child Protection Services taken them out of that fucked up circus they are forced to live in. That is a real crime those kids are going to pay a heavy price for what thier parents let happen in that family. All the blame is on those two who call themselves christians.

That Papa Duggar would be ashamed if he finds out he has a kid who is gay....is he ashamed now that he has a molesting pervert with his genetic make-up. Yeah, he, along with that hypocritical wife tried to hide it.

Chances are that at least 2 of those kids are gay. What a shame to be from a family like that who will never accept them.

Nothing but a bunch of hypocrites.

And use God's name for redemption and simply asking for forgiveness - what a bunch of bull$#!+

And now they are saying they are not a perfect family but spread hate and vile remarks on gays and lesbians

These people will never be forgiven.

1. "Good people make mistakes"? Are you calling a RAPIST and CHILD MOLESTER a "good person"? 2. The media raped his sisters? Seriously? "Blood-thirsty reporting"? Huh? How about calling it what it is: REPORTING.
