Viewer outrage is mounting on social media as the pressure is growing on TLC to cancel 19 Kids and Counting after Josh Duggar admitted to molesting girls.
The point is being repeatedly raised that TLC canceled Honey Boo Boo after June was founded to be associating with a convicted child molester. TLC established the precedent with the way they handled Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. Viewers are expecting the network to do the same in the case of Josh Duggar and 19 Kids and Counting.
Here is a sampling of some of the Twitter reaction:
Does this mean TLC will finally cancel the Duggar show? It's the same reason they cancelled Honey Boo Boo. A sex crime is a sex crime.

TLC continues to drag their feet, so it is up to you to demand the cancelation of 19 Kids. Please sign our petition and tell TLC that you will not tolerate Josh Duggar and his family’s television show remaining on the air.
This is an issue of not allowing corporate America to reward a man who has admitted to committing sex crimes. The pressure is growing on TLC. The longer they wait to cancel the Duggars, the more public outrage will grow.
