TLC Cancels Amy Duggar’s Wedding Special & It’s Not Fair

The network that aired the smash hit reality show 19 Kids and Counting now seems determined to distance itself from the Duggar clan. They've officially pulled the show from the air, put the kibosh on a Jill and Jessa spin-off, and now TLC has decided not to air Amy Duggar's wedding special.


Amy announced her engagement to Dillon King just a few short weeks ago and in that time has already gotten started with the wedding planning and excitement. While the couple hasn't announced a date yet, it could be soon if they follow the Duggar pattern of short engagements. 

Then again, cousin Amy has always marched to the beat of her own drum -- I mean, she and Dillon have already kissed and everything!

Anyway, the couple was all geared up to have their wedding filmed for a TLC special, but King took to Instagram to express his dismay that the network dropped the project like a hot potato. In a post that has since been deleted, the 27-year-old reportedly wrote that while he and his bride "were very excited about having the opportunity to share our life experience with you all," everything has changed.

"TLC [called] us yesterday stating they have decided that they will NOT be filming our wedding and they are 'glad they got to work with us'," King continued. "So, Amy and myself apologize that we will not be able to share our special day with you all on the TLC network."

He did not seem happy about TLC's decision at all, and asked fans to "voice your opinion to [the] network."

How far will this Josh Duggar thing go to affect the lives of those around him? His family's show has been pulled off the air, Jill and Jessa were essentially outed as victims and re-victimized a thousand times worse by the media (according to them), who knows if it affected Jill and Derick's decision to leaves the states and become missionaries sooner rather than later, and now Amy's wedding special has been cancelled?

This whole thing is especially unfair to her, as she was the only family member to speak publicly without minimizing or trivializing what Josh did. She just asked for peace for the family during that time, but didn't try to say Josh made a mistake, or he was only a kid, or anything else.

It seems unfair that she should be punished for something she had no control over. Besides, doesn't anyone else want to see how different her wedding is going to be from Jill's and Jessa's?
