The Duggars are under attack! Over 75,000 people have now signed the petition to get ’19 Kids & Counting’ off the air over the Duggar family’s anti-gay views, but the fans of the show are dying to keep the show on air!
It all started when Jessa Duggar and her husband, Ben Seewald, starting a “kissing trend” among the other couples in the family, and asked their married Facebook fans to share pics of themselves kissing, too! However, once same-sex couples began sending their pics in, the photos were “removed” from the page! Will this end up getting 19 Kids & Counting off the air? Thousands have signed the petition, but many are actually coming to the show’s defense, saying it’s their right to say what they want.
Duggar Family: Will ’19 Kids & Counting’ Be Canceled?
For members of the LGBTQ community, it’s not okay to have a show on air that publicly disses homosexual couples. We know that the group already signed a petition on Change.org, and as of today, Nov. 20, 2014—there has been 75,000 signatures!
So, what are people doing on Twitter?

I signed a petition today to cancel 19 Kids and Counting because of their anti-gay stance, but also b/c having that many kids is disgusting.

Fans Of The Show Heartbroken
The tweets definitely go both ways — the fans of the show are desperate to keep it on TV. They also strongly believe that everyone has the right to their own opinion.
If they cancel 19 kids and counting, I’ll probably cry…

So disappointed ppl want to cancel “19 kids and counting” simply bc of their views. Why can’t anyone have their own beliefs anymore? — Proud Conservative (@BombshellRepub) November 20, 2014
Idk I think it’s stupid as to why people want to cancel 19 kids and counting because of their beliefs. Everyone is entitled to their opinion — Pogonophile (@SoFloSass) November 19, 2014
