Mama June, the former star of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo says it is not fair that TLC hasn’t pulled the plug on 19 Kids and Counting after Josh Duggar’s involvement in a molestation investigation was made public.
Last October, Mama June’s show canned her after she was seen with a convicted child molester, Mark McDaniel. June told TMZ that if TLC doesn’t end their show she’ll sue the network for unfair treatment.
“I read that the Duggar family said, this happening with their son brought them closer to God and each other. So they’re saying it’s OK to have family touch time? Hell no.”
I just posted today the news of Josh being accused of molesting five minors, including his sisters back in the early 2000s. Josh apologized for his behavior as a teenager and claimed counseling has changed his life.
“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 to come into my life.”
His pregnant wife of seven years, Anne, is standing by his side. Josh just resigned from his position at the Family Research Council, the anti-gay group, because he believes his private past will ‘make it difficult to be effective.’ TLC has pulled all episodes of 19 Kids from their programing but hasn’t yet commented on the potential lawsuit or the fate of the show.
