TLC has not said whether “19 kids and Counting” will return after the company suspended the program amid public outrage over several occurrences of incest and child molestation where brought to light by ‘In Touch’ magazine and admitted to by members of the Duggar family.
A growing list of sponsors, however, is not waiting for TLC to make a final decision about the future of the show featuring the outspokenly conservative Duggar family.
CNN Money is reporting:
Companies including Ace Hardware, ConAgra foods, Party City, BEHR Paint, Pure Leaf Ice Tea, Ricola, Firehouse Subs, Pizza Hut, Sherwin-Williams paint, Crayola, Allstate Insurance, and King’s Hawaiian have pulled their sponsorship from the reality TV show, which has run on the network since 2008.
Each of these companies took to social media to explain to fans and consumers that they were ending sponsorship of the show.
“We share your concern for the safety of children and have no plans to air Crayola commercials during future episodes,” Crayola tweeted Wednesday.
Josh Duggar, who is now 27, apologized last week following an In Touch Magazine report about the molestations.Click here for reuse options!
