UPDATE: TLC declined to comment to The Huffington Post on the "19 Kids and Counting" marathon that aired on May 21, nor would they comment on whether they plan to cancel the series.

EARLIER: On Thursday, "19 Kids and Counting" star Josh Duggar apologized after allegations of child molestation surfaced, and resigned from his position as executive director of the conservative and anti-gay group Family Research Council Action.

That night, TLC -- who has aired the Duggar family's reality series since 2008 -- was running a "19 Kids and Counting" marathon:

The tone deaf move did not go unnoticed:

The 27-year-old issued an apology on Facebook after reports surfaced that he sexually molested five underage girls, some of whom are his sisters.
