On Thursday, TLC finally decided to cancel their hit show 19 Kids And Counting in the wake of Josh Duggar's admission to previously molesting underage girls.
While it took the cable network over a month to find any way possible to salvage their ratings juggernaut, social media outrage finally convinced TLC that the show was not worth saving!
Once the news broke, fans and critics alike took to Twitter to voice their opinions on the matter.
Most were relived that the reality show was finally off the air for good:
Jennifer Lawrence is doing it for the "f*cking kids!"
In addition to promoting the final Hunger Games installment Mockingjay: Part 2, the 24-year-old decided to show off her swearing skills — for charity!
Coco brought out a swear jar, and urged J.Law to use her potty mouth as much as she could for a 30 second span so the cash would go to charity!
Check out the video (below) to hear Katniss dropping F-bombs, S-bombs, C-bombs, before she lets her creativity take over (a strawberry sh*tsicle — how imaginative!)
Another One Bites The Dust! Kareem Abdul-Jabbar & LAUSD Pull Their Charity Golf Tournament From Donald Trump's Golf Course!
At this rate, it doesn't seem like Donald Trump's golf courses are going to see much action.
That's because the Los Angeles Unified School District is the newest organization to pull a charity golf tournament from a Trump-affiliated course.
Now the LAUSD has refused to be affiliated with the businessman after his controversial comments, and will no longer host its Beyond the Bell classic at the Donald's Rancho Palos Verdes golf club.
The tournament was set to support Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's Skyhook Foundation through Camp Skyhook, which provides hands-on experiences for fourth- and fifth-graders, most of whom come from low-income households.
Even though Donald has lost quite a few charity events recently, he still hasn't shown any sign of remorse for the outrageous things he's said.

Taylor Swift proved once again that she takes care of her fans!
When Naomi Oakes discovered at the end of June that she'd been diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia she was determined to fight the illness — with the Bad Blood singer's hit as her fight song.
The 11-year-old's family even posted a video to Youtube telling Naomi's story. The video revealed that the superfan would have to miss her idol's concert in Phoenix, Arizona due to her aggressive treatments. Oh no!
The young girl's family simply hoped the vid would result in an Instagram message from TSwizzle but the blonde beauty being an angel went a step further. On Tuesday, Taylor donated $50,000 to Naomi's Go Fund Me page! Wow!
On her donation, the Blank Space performer wrote:
Miss USA won't be the only one of Donald Trump's business ventures that suffers due to his racist comments.
The Trump National Golf Club has just lost out big time as ESPN has pulled a huge tournament, and the PGA has pulled their Grand Slam of Golf too!
The ESPY Celebrity Golf Classic tournament was scheduled to be played at Trump National on July 14, but at the last minute ESPN moved it to Pelican Hill Golf Club.
In an expertly worded statement, the network explained:
Well, not only has the 69-year-old lost his relationship with NBC, another network has decided to cut ties with the former Celebrity Apprentice host as well.
ESPN announced on Monday that it will no longer be holding its Celebrity Golf Classic at Trump's National Golf Club.
The event was supposed to take place on July 14, but now that the venue needs to be changed, its unclear where and when the charity game will actually happen.
The sports authority decided to abandon Mr. Trump because proceeds from its classic actually go towards the Stuart Scott Memorial Cancer Research Fund which donates money to medical research funds specifically for minorities… So we see where a relationship with Donald could prove to be inappropriate.
Is there anyone out there who isn't jumping from S.S. Trump??
