So, Josh Duggar and his wife, Anna, just welcomed their fifth child into the world, a baby boy named Mason Garett Duggar. The family shared the news on its official Facebook and Twitter pages where, well, let’s just say they didn’t quite get the response they were hoping for.
“We are so thankful and happy to announce the arrival of our new son, Mason Garrett Duggar. Both he and Anna are doing well,” the statement read. “He arrived today without complication and we already adore him.”
Instead of well wishes and notes of congratulations, they were bombarded with comments about Josh’s sordid past and Anna’s willingness to turn a blind eye to it all. It’s a past that includes antigay activism, religious extremism, child molestation and incest, infidelity, catfishing, and, oh yeah, a stint in sex rehab for sex addition.
“I pray that God blesses everyone but it should be illegal for an admitted child molester to procreate and create children,” wrote one follower, the Hollywood Gossip reports.
“Josh admitted to molesting 4 different sisters so it did not happen just once; it happened multiple times,” another commented. “Any woman that would have children with an admitted child molester and pedophile I would have to recommend an intensive psychological examination.”
And aother said:
People say Josh went to rehab and I will be honest here,” the follower wrote. “I have 4 children. If my son molested his siblings I don’t care what therapy he received I would never trust him again. My kids mental and physical well-being comes first. Once you decide to be a child molester and pedophile I never want to see you again. I was molested as a child so I know the severe damage it does.
As is typical, the Duggars quickly scrubbed away the negative comments from their Facebook page; however, we were able to screengrab a few remaining ones they seem to have missed in their purge:
Then there are the tweets:
Wait, what? She's still having kids with him?
