Meanwhile, others feel bad about how the girls never knew what happened to them due to their young ages. And instead of looking after their kids, Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar continue to exploit them for views.

  • “What makes it even worse is that they didn’t even understand fully that they had been abused when it came out,” one person said.
  • “They deserved to have control over their narrative, instead they were pushed onto the public stage of right wing television and forced to air the most horrible thing they’ve ever been through,” another commenter added.

  • “The Duggar girls were victimized at least thrice: when it happened, and when it came out, and when they were forced to relive it and make excuses for their abuser on television,” one person said.
  • “And the girls were made to defend it themselves on Megyn Kelly’s show! Jessa said “oh, he’s not a pedophile or anything” and we know Boob and Meech were behind that,” another commenter added.
Jill, Jessa, Jinger, and Joy-Anna are some of Josh Duggar’s victims. The identity of the fifth victim remains a mystery today.
