Hulu pulls '19 Kids and Counting' amid molestation scandal

Hulu has removed the show '19 Kids and Counting' from its offerings amid molestation allegations against one of the show’s characters.

The actor, Josh Duggar, has been accused of molesting multiple underage girls, including his own sisters.

While Hulu hasn’t commented on the removal, the shows were available for streaming earlier this week and no longer appear in the line-up.

Amid public outcry, the show’s host network, TLC, has decided against airing reruns. Multiple brands, including Choice Hotels and Payless Shoes, have also decided to cut ties with the show.

Given the mounting pressure from brands, the public, and affiliates, it seems unlikely the TLC will allow the show to return for future seasons, though no official announcements have been made.
