The Duggar family of "19 Kids and Counting" fame has been dropped from TLC's Block Party set for Saturday, May 30 at Penn's Landing, NBC Philadelphia reports.

The conservative family known for starring on one of the network's reality television shows was originally set to appear at the event, which features several TLC stars including Kate Gosselin and Randy Fenoli. 

Josh Duggar, the family's eldest child, recently quit his job at a Christian lobbying group and issued an apology following allegations that recently surfaced saying he molested underage girls as a teenager. 

While not addressing the allegations directly, Duggar, 27, called his actions as a teenager "inexcusable," saying he had hurt his family and close friends.

TLC pulled all episodes of "19 Kids and Counting" following the allegations, calling the entire situation "heartbreaking" and expressing condolences to the victims of the allegations. 

There have been no charges filed against Duggar at this time.
