While Josh Duggar’s closest family members are learning to forgive him for cheating on his wife and child sexual abuse, not everyone is ready to move on. Amy Duggar bashed her cousin in a heated blog post, calling the 27-year-old “a fraud and a complete stranger.”
In a New Year’s blog post posted shortly after ringing in 2016, the 28-year-old reflected on her wedding and marriage so far to Dillon King, as well as how Josh’s scandal took front seat during her happy moment.

“Life was just wonderful … drum roll please…. until one of my family members made some terrible confessions,” she wrote, citing Josh’s admission of child sexual abuse to two of his sisters as well as cheating on his wife Anna using website Ashley Madison.

She continued: “I knew nothing of the molestation charges, and I had no idea what the Ashley Madison site even was? I was completely shocked just like the rest of the world; the only difference was I was being fitted for my wedding dress with tears running down my face and a glass of wine in my hand as the news broke.”
Anna added that in addition to questions, she was very mad at her cousin for his behavior. “Rage came over me, sadness crept in, and reality sat in that the person I had known my entire life turned out to be a fraud, and a complete stranger,” she wrote. “I’ve always heard that there were people in this world that lived a double life, but I never thought that someone so close to home would be living a lie.”

Amy Duggar isn’t the only family member still mad at Josh, either. On Jill & Jessa: Counting On, John-David Duggar, 25, bashed his brother: "I always wanted to be like him. But one of the toughest things I had to tell my older brother was, I don't want to be like you anymore.”
