Target: Hulu CEO, Mike Hopkins
Goal: Thank Hulu for removing reality show featuring alleged child molester.
The Duggar family of the TLC reality series 19 Kids and Counting has recently become notorious for withholding information from the public regarding their eldest son’s past. Josh Duggar allegedly molested five girls when he was a teenager, many of which were his sisters. Hulu, an online streaming service, has since removed all episodes involving the family in response to the news. Thank Hulu for acting quickly and responsibly in light of the Duggars’ horrific past.
The family is best known for their highly religious teachings and unusually large family. They have publicly condemned homosexuals and the transgender community, comparing them to perverts. Unfortunately, amid all the controversy, their reality show has only continued to grow in popularity.
Josh and his parents have since issued public apologies; however, it is still necessary to cancel the show altogether. Though society’s fascination with controversy is as strong as ever, we must refuse to continue the spread of hatred and bigotry. By allowing the Duggars to have a reality show, society is rewarding and spreading the acts of molestation and deceit.
Fortunately, Hulu has made the responsible decision to discontinue streaming all episodes of the show. Though the future of the show remains unknown, it is off the air for the time being. Please sign this petition to thank Hulu CEO Mike Hopkins for eliminating 19 Kids and Counting from Hulu’s lineup.
Dear Mr. Hopkins,
I’m writing to thank you for your participation in the cancellation of the hit reality series 19 Kids and Counting, which chronicles the lives of the infamous Duggar family. In response to police records detailing Josh’s past and the alleged molestation of his sisters, it was extremely important for television networks and streaming services to take action. Thank you for responding quickly and efficiently.
The Duggar family has publicly stated their disapproval of several alternative lifestyles in a disrespectful and ignorant manner. They have shown very little compassion for those around them despite the discrepancies occurring in their own home.
It is vital for Hulu to take a zero-tolerance stance on molestation. Thus far, the public has been quite pleased with Hulu’s decision to discontinue streaming 19 Kids and Counting. This act is both responsible and necessary and takes a clear stance of disapproval for the Duggar’s actions. Thank you for making the responsible decision to discontinue a television show prominently featuring an alleged child molester.
[Your Name Here]
