Counting On viewers launch petition to get show canceled after Josh Duggar's child porn arrest as 'too many were harmed'

COUNTING On viewers have launched a petition to get the show canceled after Josh Duggar's child porn arrest.

Critics are saying "too many have been harmed" in a Change.org appeal as they call for the long-running TLC series to be axed.

Almost 10,000 people have signed the petition titled "Delete all Duggar shows".

The appeal insists: "The Duggar family should no longer have a platform. 

"This family should no longer be allowed to collect money from streaming services and television series.

"Enough is enough. Too many people have been harmed."


Counting On started in December 2015 after the Duggars' initial reality show, 19 Kids & Counting, was canceled.

It was axed after Josh, 33, was accused of molesting five underage girls as a teenager.

In Touch Weekly uncovered a 33-page Arkansas police report claiming Jim Bob told police that his eldest son fondled the breasts and genitals of young girls while they were asleep in the Duggar family home back in 2006.

Following the allegations, Josh said: "Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends.”


He was never charged with any crime related to the incidents.

His younger sisters Jill, 29, and Jessa, 28, came forward as two of the victims in an interview with Megyn Kelly, where they insisted they had forgiven Josh for his sins.

Josh, 33, was arrested in Washington County last Thursday after a 2019 Homeland Security raid on Josh's now-closed used car dealership.

According to the indictment, Josh “knowingly received child pornography” between or about May 14, 2019 and on or about May 16, 2019.


For the second count, Josh “knowingly possessed material that contained images of child pornography,” including “images of minors under the age of 12.”

The disgraced reality star was released on bail on Thursday despite allegedly having 65 child porn images and one video of minors, including a toddler.

A federal agent described the alleged images as being "the worst of the worst" that he has seen in his career.

Josh pleaded not guilty to the charges at his arraignment on Friday.

If convicted, he could receive 20 years in prison with fines up to $250,000 for each count. 

Anna, 32, announced she is pregnant with the couple's seventh child a week before the arrest with a gender reveal video.
