Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar Will Discuss Molestation Scandal This Week on Fox News
Can you believe that TLC still hasn't canceled 19 Kids & Counting? It has been nearly two weeks since it was confirmed that the rumors about Josh Duggar molesting young girls when he was a teen are in fact true. He admitted his wrongdoing while insisting that he is absolutely fine now and that's when the backlash first started. Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have built a business on their wholesome family values but after learning that they knew about their son's behavior and took no action for at least a year, well, we have to wonder what else they are hiding. They actually have decided to sit for an interview on June 3 at 9 p.m. to explain their side of things.
The couple posted the news of this interview themselves in a short statement on their official site saying "Next week we will sit down with Megyn Kelly on Fox News to share our hearts with you about the pain that we walked through as a family 12 years ago, the tears we all shed and the forgiveness that was given. We appreciate the outpouring of love and prayers for our family at this time."
While they had to come forward eventually, do you think that anything that they say or any explanation offered up at this point will really matter? While 19 Kids & Counting hasn't gotten the axe just yet, advertisers are dropping off quickly. At last count 19 different advertisers had pulled their ads, refusing to be affiliated with the Duggars and anything that they represent at this point. Do you think that there is anything that can be done to save the series?
Should TLC already have pulled the plug on this show like they did when there was a sex scandal surrounding Mama June's behavior on Honey Boo Boo? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
