Jim Bob Duggar Says Online Petition To Get Rid Of His Show Made Them More Popular

How does that work? Just because you get more exposure doesn’t mean it’s good exposure. But I guess that old saying ‘There is no such thing as bad press’ makes sense..

“They won’t succeed,” Jim Bob, 49, said at Booster Banquet at Hannibal-LaGrange University last month on Nov. 21. “Our show is the number one show on TLC. We love everybody. It’s a small group creating this fuss. All it has done is give us more exposure.”

He added that the petition was counter-effective, instead calling more attention to his family’s reality show. “We’ve gained 50,000 Facebook fans last week,” the father of 19 noted (via MBC Pathway). “God is expanding our borders through the national media.”

His comments were made in the wake of a Change.org petition requesting that TLC cancel 19 Kids and Counting in hopes to “end LGBTQ fear mongering by the Duggars.” Activists launched the online petition after the family opposed an LGBT ordinance in their native Fayetteville, Ark.

They can do whatever they want, it’s a ‘free’ country. They can believe what they want and say whatever they want, but that doesn’t mean people have to take it lying down. You have the freedom of opinion, but we have the freedom to think you’re an idiot.
