Josh Duggar’s cousin has a message for his wife, just a week before the disgraced reality show star is about to be sentenced for downloading and possessing images of child sex abuse: There’s no shame in divorce.
Amy King told Duggar’s wife Anna Duggar in an open message on Instagram on Wednesday: “You are facing an impossible decision and you are surrounded by the wrong kind of support.”
The king wrote that he cried when she read a letter that Anna Duggar’s father had written demanding leniency for his son-in-law.
“It’s no surprise that you’re struggling to figure out what to do to protect your kids… you’ve clearly never set an example out there. It’s awful and I’m sorry for it.” Sorry,” wrote the king.
He told Anna Duggar that, whatever his faith, “I need you to understand that there is no shame in divorcing Josh.” He added: “Someday your kids will be old enough to understand what kind of boy their father really is. You can’t save them from the truth forever!”
Raja’s message came a few days after he told people he was upset that Duggar continues to support Josh Duggar despite his sentence.
“I don’t think anyone would make the mistake of assuming that I support my cousin,” she wrote. “I’m also struggling to find the words to express my anger.”
She continued: “I’m angry at my cousin. I am very disappointed with him as a person. … But let me tell you, I am angry with the family that looked the other way and refuses to hold them accountable to this day. ,
King took to Twitter last week to criticize his cousin after hearing about the letters of support Josh Duggar was receiving from family and friends.
Josh Duggar was indicted in December on charges of receiving and possessing child pornography. When he is sentenced on May 25, he faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for each of the two counts.
