Josh Duggar’s Ashley Madison Statement Edited to Remove Porn Addiction Reference

Disgraced “19 Kids and Counting” star deleted, then re-posted amended apology on Duggar family website

Disgraced reality star Josh Duggar has just been caught red-handed once again.

After admitting to infidelity and calling himself “the biggest hypocrite ever” when an Internet leak revealed he was an active member on cheating website AshleyMadison.com, the original statement was removed from DuggarFamily.com, only to be replaced shortly afterwards with an amended version.

The original statement contained the phrase, “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,” while the amended version contains a much shorter replacement: “While espousing faith and family values, I have been unfaithful to my wife.”

A Twitter user captured the change in two screen captures:

The revelation that Duggar had two accounts for AshleyMadison.com — a website that helps married individuals have secretive affairs — came Wednesday, as part of the hacked information dump that is currently plaguing the exposed website and its members. Gawker posted the news and some evidence of the accounts belonging to the former family activist, including a credit card with his name and an address belonging to his grandmother.

Duggar also acknowledged the controversy that surrounded him earlier in the summer, when he admitted to molesting several underage girls, including his own sisters, when he was a teenager.

He continued in his statement, “I brought hurt and a reproach to my family, close friends and the fans of our show with my actions that happened when I was 14-15 years old, and now I have re-broken their trust … The last few years, while publicly stating I was fighting against immorality in our country, I was hiding my own personal failings.”
