TLC has pulled the show “19 Kids and Counting” after reports that Josh Duggar molested multiple underage girls when he was a teen.
The Hollywood Reporter has a statement from the network that reads, “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.”
The news comes not long after the eldest Duggar child responded to the allegations in a statement to People on Thursday: “I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. … I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life.”
