Jill Duggar and Jessa Duggar of 19 Kids and Counting fame haven't made statements in the wake of the Josh Duggar sexual molestation scandal that hit the media late this week, and resulted in TLC pulling the family's reality show from the air.

Instead the sisters have played on social media--acting as if they haven't a care in the world.

Both married now, Jill Duggar Dillard and Jessa Duggar Dillard may very well have been among Josh Duggar's victims. He reportedly sexually molested four of his own siblings as well as one non-related minor female.

Older sister Jana Duggar might have been another of Josh Duggar's victims, along with younger sister Jinger Duggar. It's likely no one will ever know for sure, however, as the police report didn't name Josh Duggar's victims because of their ages.

Maybe Jill Duggar and sister Jessa were trying to put on a united front for the 19 Kids and Counting family, and to lend an air of normalcy to the chaos that has taken over their lives.

On Thursday, Jill took to Instagram, sharing a photo of herself with Jessa Duggar Seewald.

"So glad to spend the day with my sista! @jessaseewald #sisters," she captioned the shot.

That same day, Jessa Duggar shared a photo on her Instagram account of younger sister Joy Duggar.

"Oh, the many random sibling selfies I find on my phone... This time from Joy!" she captioned the picture.

TMZ issued an interesting report in light of the Josh Duggar sexual molestation scandal. They indicate that TLC might simply fire Josh Duggar and allow the rest of the family to go on with 19 Kids and Counting. This means guaranteed jobs for Jill Duggar Dillard and Jessa Duggar Seewald, but it won't satisfy those who believe Josh Duggar isn't the only one to blame. Many feel Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are guilty, too, of not only allowing Josh on their TV show, but also of having him continue to live among the remainder of his siblings for so many years after he molested some of them.

Jessa Duggar and sister Jana Duggar are midwives, so they will no doubt have work even if they don't star on 19 Kids and Counting. Jill Duggar might not be so lucky.

Could the Duggar family survive in any format on TV following this outrageous lie of omission?

What do you se in the 19 Kids and Counting family's future?
