Amy (Duggar) King is setting the record straight.
Within the tease, Amy is explaining a scary situation that she had endured at the hands of a man. She revealed that someone had allegedly picked her up by her throat and lifted her toward the ceiling.
“I can’t say who it is, but I can say, on the show I did forgive them,” Amy tells PEOPLE Now. “It was a very heartfelt moment where I actually forgave that person who hurt me when I was younger.”

Amy also discussed how the clip impacted her and Dillion’s relationship, seeing as fans thought it was her husband who physically hurt her.
“We got hate mail and all kinds of stuff,” admits Dillon. “It exploded.”

Ultimately, Amy took to social media to address the clip’s backlash and clear the air about her husband.
She tweeted at the time, “The story I was describing in the Marriage Bootcamp teaser does not involve Dillon in any way. #Ilovemyhusband.”
