19 Kids and Counting Loses 12 Advertisers So Far

At least a dozen advertisers and counting have hastily jumped ship from TLC's 19 Kids and Counting after one of the show's stars, 27-year-old Josh Duggar, seemed to own up to child molestation allegations in a statement last week.
The Hollywood Reporter reports, General Mills, Payless, Walgreen's and Choice Hotels International were among the first brands to sever ties with the show on Tuesday, followed shortly after by Jimmy Dean, Pure Leaf Iced Tea, Ace Hardware, David's Bridal, ConAgra Foods, Party City and Behr Paint.
