Jessa Duggar appears to turn against brother Josh Duggar

Jessa Duggar appears to have publicly separated herself from her brother Josh Duggar in light of his molestation and cheating scandal.
Jessa, now formally known as Jessa Seewald, shared a Facebook post Tuesday written by her father-in-law Michael Seewald in which he called Josh a "hypocritical Christian."
Jessa's husband Ben Seewald also tweeted a link to his dad's post. A day prior, the couple shared links to a sermon that preached about putting a stop to adultery and many other temptations.
Three months ago, Josh admitted to molesting a handful of girls -- including Jessa and his other sister Jill Duggar -- about 12 years ago when he was 14-years-old. Late last month, following the massive Ashley Madison leak, Josh also confessed to being unfaithful to his wife of seven years Anna, the mother of his four children, and developing a porn addiction.
"I have been the biggest hypocrite ever... I am so ashamed of the double life that I have been living and am grieved for the hurt, pain and disgrace my sin has caused my wife and family," Josh said in a statement after his personal information was hacked and leaked off the extramarital affairs website Ashley Madison.
Josh's parents Jim Bob Duggar and Michelle Duggar also released a statement at the time in which they said their "hearts were broken."
Jessa's recent actions seem to show she no longer stands by Josh during his struggle for which he just entered rehab last week.
Jessa had previously insisted she moved on from the molesting incident and her brother is not a "child molester or a pedophile or a rapist," according toPeople. The former 19 Kids & Counting star initially attributed Josh's mistakes from over a decade ago to curiosity, youth and bad choices.
Josh's offenses resulted in TLC canceling his family's popular reality TV series 19 Kids & Counting.
