Josh Duggar Releases Statement after Ashley Madison Scandal: “I Am Biggest Hypocrite Ever”
Josh Duggar put out a statement today after being caught up in the Ashley Madison website scandal. Yesterday, Gawker reported that Josh Duggar opened several accounts on the cheaters’ website Ashley Madison. The website was hacked earlier this year and the information about Josh Duggar was posted by hackers.
Today, Josh Duggar said he was “the biggest hypocrite ever.”
Josh Duggar has confessed to cheating on his wife Anna amid reports he signed up for Ashley Madison, a website that specializes in facilitating extramarital affairs.
Josh, 27, and his parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar broke their silence Thursday on the Duggar family website.
Introducing Josh’s statement, Jim Bob and Michelle wrote, “When we learned of this late last night our hearts were broken. As we continue to place our trust in God we ask for your prayers for Josh, Anna, our grandchildren and our entire family.”
Josh put forth this statement: “I have been the biggest hypocrite ever. While espousing faith and family values, I have secretly over the last several years been viewing pornography on the internet and this became a secret addiction and I became unfaithful to my wife.”
The Duggar Family pulled the apology that went up earlier today.
Earlier this week Josh posted this on his newborn daughter.
