Josh Duggar made an incest joke on “19 Kids & Counting” back in 2008, and now video of the remark has resurfaced amid his sexual molestation scandal, which allegedly involved some of his own sisters. Watch below.

In the unearthed clip, Duggar talks about going to the movies on a date with Anna, his then fiancee and now wife. Noting how family members can’t go on dates unchaperoned before getting married, Duggar said his sister Jinger was going to tag along, but couldn’t because it was an 18-years-or-older film, and she was underage. Duggar then said he picked sister Jana and brother John David to come along instead. “We thought, why not have a double date,” joked Duggar, before adding with a laugh, “We are from Arkansas, no?” The incest allusion went largely ignored at the time.

But now the video is recirculating online less than a week after Duggar apologized for sexually assaulting five underage girls when he was 14-years-old. “Twelve years ago, as a young teenager I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends. I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation,” said Duggar, adding, “We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing, and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling.”

Shortly after Duggar’s statement, TLC announced that it was pulling “19 Kids & Counting” from its schedule. So far, however, the network has not made a final decision about the fate of the show. Check out the video of Duggar seemingly joking about incest below, and tell us what you think.
