As the TLC network ponders the future of the damaged Duggar family’s reality show, more advertisers are deciding for themselves: They’re out.

Meanwhile, pressure on social media to cancel the show outright is mounting.

Payless Shoe Source and Choice Hotels tweet-announced Tuesday they are pulling their ads from the top-rated 19 Kids and Counting show in the wake of last week’s scandalous revelations about eldest son Josh Duggar’s past molesting of underage girls.

In response to tweets from concerned customers, Payless said it was planning to remove its ads from whatever survives of the Duggar show in the future.

@SweetBabbyJesus
@PaylessInsider Please pull ads with @TLC until they . Incest and molestation are not family values.
@PaylessInsider
@SweetBabbyJesus Our ads ran during this show as part of a larger buy w/ TLC. We are taking steps to have them removed from future episodes.
