Count Jessa Duggar out as a family supporting embattled Josh Duggar of the defunct 19 Kids And Counting. In an unexpected move, the 22-year-old Jessa took on to social media to publicly criticize Josh as his latest cheating scandal engulfed the conservative Duggar family.

Jessa posted on her Facebook and Instagram accounts a note taking side with her father-in-law, Michael Sewald, who published a blog entitled, Grief, Shame, and taking the LORD's name in Vain, which provides a scathing attack against the 27-year-old Josh.

"Go to seewalds.com and read the post on the Ashley Madison scandal," Jessa tweeted and wrote Tuesday, as she encourages her followers to read Michael's blog in a clear sign she was trying to distance herself from her disgraced older brother.

Her husband, 20-year-old Ben Seewald, re-tweeted Jessa's post to encourage other people to read his father's essay.

In his blog, Michael lashed out at the former 19 Kids and Counting star for the shame he had brought on his family. For living sinful life and even accused him of blasphemy. He condemned Josh for living a wicked lifestyle.

Michael called out Josh for being a "hypocritical Christian," "wicked" and living "a covert and extensive lifestyle of evil."

"He claimed to be a Christian, but by his deeds he has suggested otherwise," he spoke of Josh Duggar in the blog. "It distresses me to say that Josh Duggar's greatest sin is a byproduct of the sum total of his secretly sinful lifestyle. That is, that by his hypocrisy, he blasphemed the name of God."

"With the name of God on his lips he lived a covert and extensive lifestyle of evil," Michael went on to say. "While proudly saying things like, 'Our family is like the epitome of conservative values,' he was looking at porn and soliciting affairs. He took a job at the Family Research Council that exists to promote the traditional family, all the while undermining his own family by violating his marriage covenant. He flourished in the fame of his family and the success of their television show, all the while betraying their trust and Christian values."

Jessa's turnaround was a big surprise from her statement in June throwing her support for Josh when reports of the sexual molestation scandal emerged. Jessa and her sister Jill, now 24, were among the five underage girls who were molested by Josh when he was still a teenager more than 10 years ago.

Josh's secretive and scandalous lifestyle is also threatening to further put cracks on the extended Duggar family. Josh's wife Anna is being convinced by her relatives, specifically her brother, Daniel Keller, who even promised to pay for her expenses and raising her kids if she leaves the controversial star of 19 Kids And Counting.

"I have told her I would pay for her to move out here w me and pay for her kidz. I don't think josh will see that this is a big deal and be truly broken till that happens. I told her I would go get her and her children stay w me. She said she's staying where she's at. But I won't stop trying to get that pig out of our family," Keller said.

Dillon King, who is scheduled to marry Jessa's cousin Amy Duggar this weekend, has also spoken about the double life of Josh.

"It's really sad," he told Us Weekly. "And I don't think it matters who (he's cheated) with. Cheating is cheating. The fact of the matter is he cheated."
