TLC temporarily stopped airing 19 Kids and Counting because the oldest boy is accused to have been molesting his younger sisters. The network did not yet decided for sure will they cancel the show completely.
One of former stars from this network made big deal about all of this. It is Mama June Shannon who had her on reality Here Comes Honey Boo Boo which was canceled because she dated former child molester and there was speculation that he was molesting her daughter too. She is pissed ‘cos her show got canceled and this one is not. She is threatening to sue the network.
This all started last week when somebody in Touch Weekly got a police report which says that there is an investigation going on about Dagger for not just one sexual offence, on a minor. And there is a clue that says some of those girls could be some of his younger sisters. The files that were hidden almost 12 years, states that he even confessed that to his father who then waited for a year to tell to police.
Josh who is now 27, posted a statement:
“Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends. I would do anything to go back to those teen years and take different actions. I sought forgiveness from those I had wronged and asked Christ to forgive me and come into my life. In my life today, I am so very thankful for God’s grace, mercy and redemption.”
His parents also gave statements:
“Back 12 years ago our family went through one of the most difficult times of our lives. 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. We pray that as people watch our lives they see that we are not a perfect family. We have challenges and struggles everyday. It is one of the reasons we treasure our faith so much because God’s kindness and goodness and forgiveness are extended to us — even though we are so undeserving. We hope somehow the story of our journey — the good times and the difficult times — cause you to see the kindness of God and learn that He can bring you through anything.”
Now what do you think, should this show stay on air or not?
