UPDATE: TLC has finally announced that the Duggars' reality show, 19 Kids and Counting, has been canceled, the Associated Press reports. The show, which has been under fire since eldest son Josh confessed to molesting underage girls as a teenager, was on the network for 10 seasons. In addition to pulling the plug on the show, TLC will air a one-hour, commercial-free documentary about child sexual abuse in late August. The documentary is part of the network's new campaign to raise awareness about the issue. Glad to see TLC stepping up and doing the right thing ... finally.
This story was originally published on May 28, 2015. Hulu is taking a stand against the Duggars. The streaming channel has pulled all episodes of 19 Kids and Counting following eldest son Josh Duggar's admission that he molested five underage girls 12 years ago. "The show page has already been removed, and is no longer hosted on Hulu," the network said in responses to users who were upset about the streaming service's involvement with the reality show. The move was met with support from its Facebook fans, who praised Hulu for "doing the right thing." "Thank you so much for removing 19 Kids and Counting from your lineup," one fan posted on Facebook. "I am so glad that you have taken off this highly offensive content. I am happy that your company takes child molestation for the serious crime it is. I am happy that your company values inclusion and diversity. I'm your customer for life and I'll be sure to tell all my friends. Well done!" The show's parent network, TLC, has yet to announce whether or not it will cancel the show once and for all. TLC pulled 19 Kids and Counting from its schedule once news of Duggar's sexual abuse was made public. With major advertisers dropping out fast, can it be long before the network takes action? We have reached out to Hulu for comment and will update the story as it progresses. (TMZ)
