The post has sparked conversations online about the status of Josh and Amy’s relationship and more.

Many fans are curious who will come forward to back Amy’s suggestion.

They no longer have to wonder what Anna’s sister thinks about her marriage to Josh, however.

On Reddit, fans were quick to point out that Rebeckah Hunt “liked” Amy’s post.

Earlier this week, Amy took to her TikTok account to rant about the situation, alleging that the mother of seven has wrongly taught her children how to deal with “abuse.”

She explained: “Anna you’re showing your daughters that abuse is okay. 

“They’re watching your every move. Your sons are learning what’s right and wrong. I’m sure they can kinda figure something’s up.”

Amy went on: “They’re too young to probably know the extent, of course, hopefully, you’re protecting them from that.

“But I don’t know any child that doesn’t look up to their mommy in some way. You’ve got a responsibility to them.

“To really give them love and protection and to show them that enough is enough, that you’re going to stand up and protect them.

She added: “It just hit me like a ton of bricks y’all just a ton of bricks. I mean wow.”

“Kids growing up, they either want to be like their mommy or they want to marry someone like their mom.

“And that can either be really amazing and beautiful or it can be downright destructive,” she closed.


Earlier this month, Amy called on Anna to wise up and go against her husband.

She said in a three-part front-facing video Saturday, which she captioned, in part, #toxic: “I think it’s so incredibly sad that I have to do this post, but let me tell you something.

“Anna, I love you – I have loved you since day one you entered our family.

“But you are showing women all over the world that follow you that it is okay to have an abuser in your home.

“Around your beautiful children… you’re showing everyone it’s okay to cheat, it’s okay to use me as a ragdoll, it’s okay.

“Have more self-respect than that. … Hello?” Amy added as she held the camera with her brunette hair down, barely able to contain her anger.

“It breaks my heart that he did that to you.

“It breaks my heart that you’re sitting there allowing your kids to want ‘daddy home.'”

“The ‘daddy’ is not safe, he’s not a safe person.

“He deserves to be locked up. He deserves to be away from your kids, and you deserve better.”


Amy has not been shy about sharing her opinions about her disgraced cousin Josh, who is days away from receiving his prison sentence.

The TV personality demanded that Anna divorce the father of her kids in a shocking post.

She took to Instagram to share a throwback photo with Anna from her own wedding to husband Dillon King.

In the snap Amy, in a wedding dress, hugged Anna as they both smiled.

“Anna, I feel for you,” Amy began her lengthy caption.

“No woman wants to be in your shoes. You’re faced with an impossible decision and you’re being surrounded by the wrong kind of support.”

The 35-year-old continued: “You’ve been taught since you were a child that marriage is forever and you prayed for God to send you a partner. You’ve constructed a life and a family with him.

“You didn’t choose any of this, and your kids certainly didn’t either. I’m not coming after you with some sort of tough love thing. This is what’s simply on my heart and I can’t help but to express it…”

The Counting On alum then claimed she read a letter that Anna’s dad wrote in “support” of Josh.

“It’s no wonder you’re struggling to know what to do to protect your own kids,” Amy said.

“… I need you to understand that there is no shame in divorcing Josh…”

She continued: “Someday your kids will be old enough to understand what kind of guy their father really is. You can’t protect them from the truth for forever!”

“Your children look up to you so much. Please be the role model they need in their life,” the former reality star wrote.

She concluded: “Josh has chosen how history will remember him. By staying and supporting him you’re allowing him to choose that for you, too.

“The only people you would upset by leaving are the ones willing to sacrifice you and your children’s safety to protect Josh and his secrets.”


Josh, 34, was found guilty of possessing child pornography, as well as receiving it, on December 9 and will be sentenced on May 25.

Several of his family members attended court proceedings.
