In the wake of the Josh Duggar scandal, Hulu has quietly taken the show off its website. You can find episodes listed in search results, but they do not load.
The company has made no statement about why they made this move, but most guess that it is directly related to the Josh Duggar molestation scandal. Josh Duggar issued a statement to the public when news surfaced that he had molested five girls, including four who are said to be his own sisters.
“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 confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing, and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling. I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my 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 come into my life. In my life today, I am so very thankful for God’s grace, mercy and redemption.”
Josh Duggar resigned from his position at the Family Research Council as a result of the news of the molestations surfacing.
TLC, the network that carries 19 Kids and Counting, had already pulled currently-airing reruns from its schedule, but had stopped short of canceling the upcoming season of the show.
There has also been news that TLC is looking at a spin-off program that just stars the sisters on the show.
