WORLD EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: Jon & Kate Relatives Say Kids Exploited; Encourage Boycott Of Show

As TLC announces it is halting production — for now — of its reality show Jon and Kate Plus 8, Kate Gosselin‘s brother Kevin and his wife Jodi, want people to stop watching the show, should it continue on.

In an exclusive new interview only for, the pair said they worry about the toll taken on the eight Gosselin children as their parents crumbling marriage is played out on national television.

“Everyone is agreeing this is going to have lasting effects — negative effects — on these children and yes, they are being exploited,” Jodi Kreider said, as her husband Kevin sat with his arm around her. We have hopes that, if enough people become aware of this, then everyone will do their part and if that is to turn off the TV [or] change the channel [then] do it! Hopefully, these children will be able to have their childhood again.”

Jon & Kate Plus 8 airs Monday on TLC at 9/8c.
