19 Kids and Counting star Jim Bob Duggar has nothing but love for his haters.
As we reported, the reality TV family struck up controversy when they supported an ordinance that many felt was discriminatory to the LGBT community. The bill has since passed.

In response, detractors started a petition urging TLC to cancel the hit series, and it has since racked up over 180,000 signatures.
But Duggar isn't worried. In fact, all of this drama is ACTUALLY helping the show.
In response to the family's naysayers, he said:
"They won't succeed… Our show is the No. 1 show on TLC. It's a small group creating this fuss. All it has done is give us more exposure."
Damn! What cocky confidence!
The patriarch further asserts that since the petition was created, his family has received over 50,000 likes on Facebook.
As they say, there is no such thing as negative publicity…
But do YOU think the network will pull the show??
