I deeply regret all the hurt I have triggered so many by being such a bad example.”
An earlier version of the statement consisted of the line, “I have covertly over the last numerous years been viewing pornography on the web and this became a secret dependency and I became unfaithful to my partner.” It has been eliminated.
His moms and dads, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, said in the statement that their hearts were broken when they discovered Wednesday of their son’s activities.
“As we continue to place our rely on God, we ask for your prayers for Josh, Anna, our grandchildren and our entire family,” they said.

I have actually brought hurt and a reproach to my family, close friends and the fans of our show with my actions.
