No one seems to be angrier with Josh Duggar than talk show host Montel Williams.

Montel launched a Twitter tirade against Josh, calling him many names, including "bigot" and "slimebag," since publicly confessing to being investigated for sexually molesting underage girls. He has since resigned his post at the Family Research Council, a conservative Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit.

It all started Thursday evening when he tweeted about Josh's confession and called out the reality TV star for speaking against LGBT people. "BREAKING: Josh Duggar, a world class bigot, admits sexually abusing young girls - has consistently stated that LGBT folks r danger to kids," he wrote.

Montel continued his attack against the 19 Kids and Counting star, criticizing him for his "alleged Christian" values. He wrote, commenting on his first tweet, "Gosh, yet another anti-gay alleged 'Christian' defender turns out to be a garden variety scumbag."

But the host didn't stop there. He proceeded to call out the Family Research Council, the entire Duggar family and even quoted scripture to further his point. "Sorry, Josh Duggar is a bigot, slimebag. Whole family is, and FRC is a scam. Yup, Gay people are the danger to kids? NOPE, JOSH DUGGAR IS," he wrote.

When Twitter users began to attack Montel for his rant, he told his followers that he wasn't reacting "to the allegation itself, it was reacting to the hypocrisy of claiming #lgbt dangerous to kids with his history."

He responded to people who urged him to "forgive" Duggar, 27, writing, "@Mulder24 when @joshduggar makes amends to the #lgbt community for his faux-Christian hypocrisy I'll be pleased to do so. #Hypocrite."

The unearthed police report, first obtained by In Touch magazine, stated that 19 Kids and Counting patriarch Jim Bob Duggar and wife Michelle brought their eldest son, Josh, in to the Children's Safety Center in Springdale, Ark., in 2006 to be interviewed in response to an accusation that he had sexually abused underage girls in 2002 and 2003.

The report has since been expunged to protect the identity of one of the alleged victims, who was a minor. Josh, who is expecting his fourth child with wife Anna Duggar, released a statement to People following the report's publication.

"Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret," he said.

"I hurt others, including my family and close friends. I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing, and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling. I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life."
