The heat has finally died down over the massive scandal of 19 Kids and Counting star Josh Duggar being revealed as an adulterous user of Ashley Madison. Considering that Duggar was a leading voice for conservative Christian family values, the hypocrisy of his cheating turned out to be an even bigger story than when it turned out he molested his sisters. How do you figure that?

But all these controversies may evaporate from your memory when you read this story. A Duggar family still reeling from those media frenzies has stepped right back into it with a video posted to their official Facebook page. The multitudinous Duggars took advantage of a promotion held by Krispy Kreme for National Talk Like a Pirate Day. For one day only, anyone who walked into a Krispy Kreme and said something piratey like "arr matey," "shiver me timbers," or "I'm the captain now" would get a free donut. Anyone dressed like a pirate would get a free dozen. It was a good-natured promotion by the donut chain, but the one thing they never expected was to be overrun by hungry Duggars.

A lot of fun and family time! 14 dozen donuts for free to share!

In total, fourteen Duggars in full pirate gear descended on the hapless Krispy Kreme location. The poor employees must have thought their store was being hijacked. The ravenous TV Christians walked off with 168 donuts in total. They shared one dozen with a homeless couple, and stored the remaining 156 in their doomsday bunker or whatever.

People on social media, always quick to hate on the Duggars, were relentless in condemning this blatant act of pastry piracy. Although whichever mor Duggar is on social media duty today deleted the comments as they appeared, Facebook user Linda Sheppard compiled a number of gems for posterity:

Just because you "can" get something for free, doesn't mean you should! Too bad that wasn't in the homeschool wisdom booklets. Do you realize that you not only cannot possibly eat that many donuts, but it is greedy to take more than you need?! And perhaps you are taking food out of mouths that truly could use it? I'm beyond disgusted by your selfish, pirating, plundering, pandering ways.

–Susan Panther

All of you needed a free dozen doughnuts? That seems a little selfish. Hopefully you didn't clear the place out, I'm sure others would have liked to have some.

Abusing the system AGAIN! You are hogs! GLUTTONY is a SIN, god dam it! You will spoil this for everyone else. 

–Wanda Fisher

Harsh words all around.
