Josh Duggar’s Three edits and counting: His apology for Ashley Madison and its continual rewrites

The Duggars for years have been a TLC favourite amoung many people for their ridiculous, yet loving family and their considerably wholesome values. As of earlier this summer, the world came to realize this was not the case when Josh Duggar, the eldest child and son, came forward about molesting five underage girls, two of which were his younger sisters. The show was officially cancelled by TLC after this news came about. After some months it had seemed like the Duggar scandals had finally ended but that was was from the truth.

Most recently it has come forward that Josh Duggar has had multiple accounts on Ashley Madison, a well known online website where you sign up to CHEAT on your spouse! Their slogan reading “Life is short, have an affair!”

Earlier this week a couple of hackers managed to get personal information from the website and made it public, inevitably leaking Josh’s well kept secret. The family is once again back in the unwanted spotlight with Josh is sweating behind the bright lights.

Josh came forward with statements about how he has been unfaithful and even calling himself a hypocrite. It is not a surprise that the very religious family would be against the ideas of same sex marriage and they often spoke out against the ideas with Josh being a big spokesperson. However he did recently call himself a hypocrite for speaking out against such things when he himself was acting in “sin” and being unfaithful.

He stated: “I have been the biggest hypocrite ever. While espousing faith and family values, I have secretly over the last several years been viewing pornography on the internet and this became a secret addiction and I became unfaithful to my wife.”

His original statement which was posted to the families website mentioned how horribly he felt as well as mentioning pornography and his unfaithfulness to his wife. He later revised that and put it back up on the website leaving out any mentionings of pornography. Finally he revised the way he said his unfaithfulness towards his wife.

Apparently from the years of 2012 until 2015 Josh has spent close to $1,000 on the Ashley Madison website.

After all of this any woman in her right mind would take her kids and run for it but not Anna Duggar, wife of Josh. She has just given birth to their fourth child and is, apparently, going to stay by his side despite all that’s happened.
