Welll mentioned, Jacob and Isabel Roloff.
So very nicely mentioned, certainly.
Even in case you are not an everyday superstar gossip follower, you’ve got doubtless heard by now that Josh Duggar was arrested on Wednesday on two charges of kid pornography possession.
Due to the infamy of his household and the heinous nature of this alleged crime, the story has gone nationwide, with retailers similar to CNN reporting on Duggar’s supposed misdeeds.
According to authorized paperwork and what we have gathered from Josh’s court docket listening to on Friday, the 33-year previous father of six is accused of downloading photos of underage kids in May 2019.
At least one among these photos was of a minor underneath the age of 12.
Josh, who’s anticipating child number-seven along with his spouse, Anna, stays in custody.
He’s being held with out bail and can not be permitted around his children even when/when he does make bond after a follow-up listening to on May 5.
It’s a very horrifying scenario, particularly when you think about that Josh admitted in 2015 to having inappropriately touched 5 little women when he was a 14-year previous.
Two of these victims have been his personal sisters.
TLC canceled the present 19 Kids and Counting after this data grew to become public… however the community later aired a by-product titled Counting On, which has now been on for 11 seasons.
Josh has by no means appeared on the spinoff.
However, executives are nonetheless profiting off his household title and nonetheless filling the checking account of his mother and father, Jim Bob and Michelle.
These polarizing mother and father of 19 allegedly helped cowl up Josh’s molestation scandal again in the day as a result of they neverr contacted the authorities about their son’s habits.
Instead, the merely enrolled Josh in some kind of mysterious counseling program… which was run by a household good friend.
Describing it as “one of the darkest times our family has ever gone through,” Jim Bob advised Fox News six years in the past that he and his spouse put supposed safeguards.
To be certain that nothing else occurred with their oldest baby, that’s.
“We watched him like all the time,” Jim Bob advised Megyn Kelly again then.
“I took him to work with me,” he mentioned.
“We just poured our life into him.”
This is all related once more now for the most unlucky of causes. Late Friday, TLC launched the following assertion in response to Josh’s arrest:
“TLC is saddened to find out about the continued troubles involving Josh Duggar.”
“19 Kids and Counting has not aired since 2015.”
“TLC canceled the present on the heels of prior allegations towards Josh Duggar and he has not appeared on air since then.”
For Jacob and Isabel Roloff, nonetheless, two individuals who have expertise with this cable community, such a press release was an enormous crock of BS.
Both halves of this couple shared social media posts that slammed TLC for performing as if it had nothing in any respect to do with the Duggars anymore.
Jacob and Isabel, for instance, every reposted a message that included the new press launch about Duggar.
The launch mentioned he is been accused of “receiving and possessing material depicting the sexual abuse of children.”
This identical message (under) trashed the familly for having principally claimed in the previous that it might “pray” away a lot of these sins.
Wth the assist of Jacob and Isabel, many Tweets of this nature went viral yesterday.
“Until his arrest yesterday, Josh Duggar was living [in] a family compound full of minor children. This is after he’d molested some of his sisters years ago,” one half learn.
“The Duggar household continued to have a present on TLC.”
Jacob highlighted the final sentence and emphasised it to his followers:
Continued to have a present on TLC.
Isabel, for her half, confirmed assist by screengrabbing Roloff’s message and writing her personal caption through Instagram Stories, including:
“Repost my husband.”
TLC producers can strive to conceal behind the undeniable fact that they kicked Josh off the air years in the past.
But they’ve continued to present each a platform and a hefty paycheck to different members of the household.
A household that turned a blind eye to a number of previous scandals (molestation, infidelity, and so forth.) involving this identical, despicable human being.
It’s maybe value remembering that Jacob went public in December along with his personal accusation of sexual misconduct.
He referred to as out a TLC producer by title in a prolonged Instagram submit.
Jacob alleged that this individual had molested him back when he was a cast member on Little People, Big World.
It’s unknown presently simply what occurred to this producer and simply how the community dealt with the controversy.
What must be very clear, although, is what TLC does from right here.
It wants to cancel Counting On instantly.
It wants to distance itself as a lot as attainable from the Duggars.
It wants to cease rewarding mother and father whose possessive, controlling and narcissistic nature helped contribute to this ongoing, large and horribly abusive scandal.
As it stands now, the community is basically bankrolling a cult.
