“Happy birthday Michael! Sorry your Dad is a rapist.”

“If Josh is so quick to judge other people for their ‘sins’, why shouldn’t be expect the same? Is it because he thinks he’s so privileged and above everyone else? I’d love to know your real opinion on how you can support such backward opinions.”

“You shouldn’t be allowed around children.”

“He obviously posted this to brew some discussion and publicity since he’s been inactive.”

“Filthy child molester who points fingers at others. Disgusting. And, Anna who thought it was no biggie.”

Since news of the scandal broke, Josh has resigned from the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C., and he and his wife reportedly moved back to Arkansas. (RELATED: Josh Duggar CANCELS On Christian Music Festival Amid Molestation Scandal)
