TMZ is reporting that cable channel TLC has officially yanked 19 Kids and Counting off the air.
According the TMZ’s sources, the ultimate fate of the show is not known, but in the wake of fallout from revelations about Josh Duggar’s past molestation of underage girls, the network had no other choice.
In addition, a representative for General Mills told TMZ that they had “blacklisted” the show and “removed it from their company’s advertising schedule.”
As [TMZ] reported, TLC ran a Duggar marathon Thursday, prominently featuring Josh. There was big backlash, not the least of which came from Mama June, who felt TLC was giving the Duggars a pass for far worse conduct than hers, which caused TLC to pull the plug on ‘Honey Boo Boo.’
TLC’s decision apparently isn’t “long term,” but this latest development is no doubt bad news for the show.
