19 Kids and Counting Molestation Scandal Leads Walgreens, Payless, and Choice Hotels to Pull Ads From TLC Show.

Advertisers are walking away from TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting” after eldest son Josh Duggar admitted to inappropriate behavior with young girls – including his sisters, according to reports – when he was a teen.Walgreens, Payless, General Mills and Choice Hotels have all pulled their ads from TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting after allegations of child molestation against Josh Duggar surfaced last week.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Choice Hotels and Payless ShoeSource said Tuesday that they have decided to pull advertising from future broadcasts of the Duggar family’s reality show. We spoke with authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling.” Since the news broke, the Kansas police have destroyed all copies of the investigation. A spokesperson for the Springdale Police Department confirmed to Us Weekly that a local circuit judge approved having the 2006 offense report expunged. I will be finding another pharmacy until I’m certain that my money will not be finding its way into the Duggar’s pockets.” “Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret.

Duggar has since resigned from his position at the Family Research Council, and has canceled a scheduled appearance to speak at a home-schooling convention in Sandusky, Ohio. I hurt others, including my family and close friends,” he said in a statement. “I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation.

Maybe they didn’t do it in a way that pleases everyone, but they acted decisively to confront the sin, to call a penitent son back from his errors, and to seek to aid the hurting victims.” Sadly, this type of thing is all too common. We should not downplay the seriousness of these offenses particularly, nor gloss over the pain and confusion they often bring, sometimes for a lifetime. “Do not keep silent if you are being abused, tell someone you trust, a parent, a teacher, a friend, anyone is better than silence,” he wrote. “You are likely not the only one who has been abused.

Civil penalties are sometimes required and we should never begrudge the victims of crimes or the civil authorities from seeking justice, but we are not to condemn repentant sinners in our hearts or with our tongues or pens. There are many of you that are reading these words right now having had thoughts and deeds no better than what Josh had and did.” Since Thursday, when Josh Duggar, his parents and his wife, Anna, posted a series of statements on Facebook, the Duggars have been in a cone of public silence. Among the only people close to the family to speak out prior to Seewald’s post was former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, who on Friday criticized “those who have enjoyed revealing [Duggar’s] long ago sins.” Huckabee, a 2016 GOP presidential hopeful who recently received the Duggars’ endorsement, said: “No purpose whatsoever is served by those who are now trying to discredit Josh or his family by sensationalizing the story.” Noting that he “would rather not discuss something of this nature on my blog, “especially since it is dredging up past sins that have been painfully grieved over once already by all involved,” Seewald said he felt “compelled to bring some context and reason to the bloodletting that many are engaging in and to come to the aid of our dear friends and family.”
