TLC: Jon's a Pariah

TLC has come out swinging, calling Jon Gosselin's antics "opportunistic." Ya think so?

Gosselin has found God after getting dumped from "Jon & Kate Plus 8" and is now demanding that TLC stop production for the sake of his kids.

TLC says it is "deeply disappointed" at Jon's "erratic behavior," calling Jon's latest salvo "grossly inaccurate, without merit and...clearly opportunistic."

TLC adds, "Despite Jon Gosselin's repeated self-destructive and unprofessional actions, he remains under an exclusive contract with TLC."

But Jon may have TLC over a barrel, because it has suspended production while they hash it out with the concerned father of 8.
