Advertisers Drop 19 Kids and Counting Amid Josh Duggar Scandal

Major advertisers have dropped their ads from "19 Kids and Counting" following Josh Duggar's admission that he molested five girls, including his younger sisters, as a young teen. Josh is the eldest of the 19 children in the Duggar family.

Since Josh's statement Thursday, TLC has pulled all reruns of the show from its schedule, but has not announced what will happen to the show in the future. Josh has also resigned from his position at the Family Research Council.

General Mills, Payless ShoeSource, and Choice Hotels, among others, have announced that they will no longer run ads during the show should it return to airwaves.

From USA Today:

As the TLC network ponders the future of the damaged Duggar family's reality show, more advertisers are deciding for themselves: They're out.

Meanwhile, pressure on social media to cancel the show outright is mounting.

Payless ShoeSource and Choice Hotels tweet-announced Tuesday they are pulling their ads from the top-rated 19 Kids and Counting show in the wake of last week's scandalous revelations about eldest son Josh Duggar's past molesting of underage girls.

In response to tweets from concerned customers, Payless said it was planning to remove its ads from whatever survives of the Duggar show in the future.

This isn't looking good for the future of the show, and like I said before, it's highly unlikely that the show will remain on-air as-is.
