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:
i saw that 19 kids and counting was trending and i thought “please be trending because it was cancelled” AND IT WAS god bless

Some users lamented about how they wouldn’t see their favorite Duggar family anymore:
I’m legit sad they aren’t filming any more 19 Kids and Counting

are you kidding me?!? This was my show, I love 19 kids and counting! I can’t believe this. I have nothing to do with my life now

And some ignorant users compared Josh Duggar molesting his sisters to TLC’s new show I Am Jazz, following the life of transgender teen Jazz Jennings:
I understand TLC’s reasoning for canceling the ’19 Kids and Counting’ but why would they be okay with ‘I am Jazz’ ? double standard.
