Jinger Duggar's husband Jeremy posts & deletes cryptic tweet about a 'great day' after show canceled over Josh's arrest
JINGER Duggar's husband Jeremy posted & deleted a cryptic tweet about a 'great day' after their family's show Counting On was canceled over her brother Josh's arrest.
Jeremy, 33, posted the tweet following TLC's announcement that the Duggar's 13 years on the network will come to an end.
The former soccer star quickly deleted the tweet, but not before fans captured a screenshot of the tweet saying: "Today is a great day."
Yesterday, news broke that the family's reality show, Counting On, had been canceled after almost six years following Josh Duggar's arrest on child pornography charges, The Sun exclusively revealed.
The show about Jim Bob Duggar, his wife Michelle and their many children is a spin-off of 19 Kids & Counting, which was axed in 2015 after Josh was accused of molesting five minor females.
The shocking news comes after fans launched a petition to boycott Counting On – as horrifying details of Josh's child pornography arrest emerged.
An insider told The Sun exclusively: "The decision was made by TLC earlier this week to cancel the show.
"The family was told over the phone shortly after and it's still very hush hush. The petition from those who boycotted Counting On was hard to ignore, and sponsors were very concerned following Josh's arrest.
"There have been a lot of discussions in recent weeks as the network had already spent money on production after months of filming."
"But the bottom line is, the network really wants to be on the right side of this scandal ahead of Josh's trial. It was important for bosses to be seen to have taken action.
"The case has put the show in such a bad light, and although it's a shame for those who worked hard on it, and the money spent, there really is no way forward."
Counting On's last season ended in September 2020, and fans have been left wondering if there will be a new season this year.
A rep then provided a brief statement to other media outlets, saying: "TLC will not be producing additional seasons of Counting On.
"TLC feels it is important to give the Duggar family the opportunity to address their situation privately."
After news of the show's cancellation emerged, Josh's cousin Amy Duggar took to Instagram asking for legal advice.
Amy – who featured regularly on 19 Kids & Counting and made several appearances on Counting On – is under an NDA and asked her fans if that agreement is still valid.
Tagging her cousin Jill and Jill's lawyer husband Derick Dillard, she said: "Question for anyone out there who is a lawyer, aka Derick.
"Once a show is canceled does that mean if anyone has signed an NDA – is that canceled since there's no show to protect?"
The 34-year-old went on: "Hmm. Just a question. I have a feeling that things are going to get very interesting."
Amy added that she "stands with" TLC's decision to cancel Counting On after her cousin Josh's arrest on child porn charges.
She wrote on Instagram: "Thank you for the ride. I’ll treasure the memories, always. Also, I stand with the network in this decision!"
Josh pleaded not guilty after being charged with two counts of receiving and possessing child porn.
He was taken into custody on federal charges on April 29 following a 2019 Homeland Security raid on his now-shuttered used car dealership, The Sun first reported.
His father Jim Bob is believed to be paying his lawyers, as Josh has been out of work for months. He also arranged for a third party custodian to take him in when he was let out on bail.
The Sun exclusively revealed on Tuesday that his jury trial has been postponed until November.
If convicted, he could receive 20 years in prison with fines up to $250,000 for each count.
