BREAKING — TLC Yanks Pervy 19 Kids And Counting From Schedule

A “deeply saddened” TLC– The Learning Channel — has announced that it has pulled the popular TV show?19 Kids and Counting from its schedule. The announcement came after Duggar son Josh Duggar admitted to being a child molester, and that his victims may have included some of his sisters.

TLC made this statement:

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and victims at this difficult time,” the network said in a statement Friday.

?Effective immediately, TLC has pulled all episodes of 19 Kids and Counting currently from the air. 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.”

Several websites — TMZ,??Hollywood Reporter, Deadline?– reported this development on Friday

That didn’t stop TLC from capitalizing on the disgraceful situation. They aired a 19 Kids and Counting marathon after Josh Duggar’s confession.

Josh Duggar’s parents put out a statement on Thursday:

?When Josh was a young teenager, he made some very bad mistakes, and we were shocked. We had tried to teach him right from wrong. That dark and difficult time caused us to seek God like never before.?

Yawn. They should have started “seeking God” before Daddy Jim Bob kept this horror hidden until the statute of limitations expired. Maybe Mike Huckabee, who appears to think it’s totes OK, can help them “seek God.”

Michelle Duggar?has repeatedly attacked gay people. But perhaps daughter Jill Duggar summed it up best in her book:?Growing Up Duggar: It’s All About Relationships.

Indeed.
