Oprah Winfrey canceled Duggar family’s taping and sent them home after learning of Josh’s past

Oprah Winfrey wasted no time in canceling an appearance by the Duggar family on her former talk show when she received an anonymous email pointing to allegations of Josh Duggar’s molesting underage girls, some of who included his sisters.

Oprah Winfrey wasted no time in canceling an appearance by the Duggar family on her former talk show when she received an anonymous email pointing to allegations of Josh Duggar’s molesting underage girls, some of who included his sisters.

According to a report from TMZ, the email was received by a Harpo staffer on the morning of December 7, 2006. In addition to revealing Josh Duggar’s past, the email also alleged that his parents, Jim Bob and Michelle, covered up their son’s past crimes.

Oprah’s staff immediately notified a child abuse hotline about the allegations, which triggered the police investigation.

The day the email was received, the Duggars were already in Chicago preparing for their taping on the show later that day. By 1:17 pm, an Arkansas State police officer, alerted by the tip from Oprah’s staff, called Josh’s mom Michelle and told her to bring her son back home immediately for an interview.

By that time, the taping of the Duggar’s appearance on Oprah’s show had already been canceled.

    People can say what they like about Oprah, but this shows she does have integrity. Just wish it hadn’t taken another nine years to find out about this depraved family and their sorry excuse for a son.

    When a family stands before you, on a TV show, nonetheless, and tell you how good and Christian they are, they are neither good OR Christian. There are always skeletons in a closet…and with that many kids….Im just waiting for a few of them to come out of those overstuffed closets.

    Yes, Oprah and her staff did exactly the correct things, but how did this not come out sooner? Not that Oprah should have ‘leaked” it because it was an accusation at that time. Someone at TLC had to know. And what a horrible set of parents, to allow their son to abuse his siblings and other young girls with no repercussions. Guess they love their son more than they care about the mental/physical health of their daughters. Such wonderful “Christians”, I am pretty sure JC is not okay with his behavior.

    I wish we wouldn’t have had to see them spread their hate, but I’m not sorry that it came around to stick on them.

    I thought the story was Ma and Pa Duggar turned their oldest kinky spawn into the police on their own, but the Arkansas policeman who just happened to be a fan of child pornography let him off with a stern talking to….this article implies that Oprah, not Ma and Pa, was the initiator of the reporting of the hateful spawn–there is a lot more to learn about these sanctimonious phools.

    Thanks, Oprah, for doing as you have done so many times in so many situations where the innocent must be protected if the abuse is to stop.

    Obviously, we cannot rely on politicians or other people in leadership positions like Huckabee to act responsibly.

    I’m very disappointed in her. Dragging those girls through the mud just shows how insensitive she really is. I guess it’s all about being a business woman and killing your competition. Josh Duggar was a minor and this should not have been made public.

    Oprah released the story- no integrity or care just selfish media cow. http://madworldnews.com/duggar-girls-victimized/

    I don’t think she should’ve rushed to judgment, she should’ve had a personal sit down meeting with the parents & Josh & found out herself what the situation was. Everything isn’t always so cut, clear & dry

    Susan you have got to be kidding me. Josh molested until he was at least 17. Not saying anything does not protect the victims, it protects the perpetrators. That’s how serial molesters get away with it, nobody says anything so they’re free to prey upon whomever. Look at the Catholic Church. Josh is no better than those priests and his parents are no better than the higher ups who covered for them.

    There’s an especially dismal part of Hell reserved for child molesters and the people who protect them.

    Oprah didn’t drag anyone through the mud. If she was the ruthless businesswoman you think she is, she would’ve had them on the show and blindsided them with the accusations in front of the audience. Imagine the ratings for THAT show.
