After the shocking news of Josh Duggar's alleged past swarmed news outlets, the Duggar family has been pulled from the TLC Summer Block Party in Philadelphia next weekend.

After nearly 10,000 people signed a petition to cancel the show on overnight, the famous family has been dropped from many of their upcoming appearances and events.

The Duggars were scheduled to appear during Philly's Summer Block party, but were quickly pulled from the slate after news of Josh's scandal broke loose online.

The block party will take place at the Great Plaza at Penn's Landing on May 30th, and will include TLC favorites such as Kate Gosselin and Cake Boss Buddy Valastro.

Though Josh publicly apologized for allegedly molesting five underage girls as a teenager back in 2002 and 2003 – detailed in a police report released by In Touch – it appears there's no coming back from this blunder.
