On Thursday, Duggar’s cousin Amy King told her followers in an Instagram Story not to send her graphic details regarding her cousin’s case, because she is attempting to protect her heart and mind. King also stated that she is praying that her cousin receives the prosecution’s recommended sentence, saying, “Please pray that Josh Duggar will be given the ultimate sentence. 20+ years.”
King further asked her Twitter followers if her Aunt Michelle was “delusional” for characterizing Josh as just a funny and charismatic person while not even referencing the crimes for which he was convicted.
“There’s a sinister side. A side to him that makes your skin crawl. You can’t ignore what he did years ago, and what he was caught looking at,” King wrote.
“Abusers are not all shady men lurking in alleyways,” an image King posted read. “They are amongst your friends, classmates, co-workers, family, etc. They are sociable, well-liked, charismatic—charming even—making it that much more important to act accordingly when outed.”
