Outspoken “family values” activist and ex-reality TV star Josh Duggar is a dirtbag, y’all.
Earlier this year, we learned the former Family Research Council lobbyist molested five underaged girls when he was a teen, including two of his sisters. Back in May, Duggar basically chalked up his heinous actions to being young and dumb and said he’d been redeemed by begging God forgiveness.
Welp, looks like it didn’t work.
After a group of hackers broke into the pro-adultery site Ashley Madison, which connects would-be cheaters to potential sex partners, Duggar was exposed as a hypocrite.
Gawker found out the former 19 and Counting star spent nearly $1,000 on the site to solicit sex from women, and even signed up for Ashley Madison’s $250 “affair guarantee” that meant he’d get his money back if he didn’t actually find a partner.
Here’s what Duggar was looking for:
“Conventional Sex,” Experimenting with Sex Toys,” One-Night Stands,” “Open to Experimentation,” “Gentleness,” “Good With Your Hands,” Sensual Massage,” “Extended Foreplay/Teasing,” “Bubble Bath for 2,” “Likes to Give Oral Sex,” “Likes to Receive Oral Sex,” “Someone I Can Teach,” “Someone Who Can Teach Me,” “Kissing,” “Cuddling & Hugging,” “Sharing Fantasies,” “Sex Talk
Duggar, who once called marriage equality a threat to American families, released a statement about the leaked information and admitted he cheated on his wife.
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.
I am so ashamed of the double life that I have been living and am grieved for the hurt, pain and disgrace my sin has caused my wife and family, and most of all Jesus and all those who profess faith in Him.
I brought hurt and a reproach to my family, close friends and the fans of our show with my actions that happened when I was 14-15 years old, and now I have re-broken their trust.
The last few years, while publicly stating I was fighting against immorality in our country, I was hiding my own personal failings.
As I am learning the hard way, we have the freedom to choose to our actions, but we do not get to choose our consequences. I deeply regret all hurt I have caused so many by being such a bad example.
