Jill Duggar's Husband Derick Dillard Slammed for Transphobic Comment, TLC Responds

Derick Dillard, the star of TLC’s Counting On and the husband of Jill Duggar, is under fire for a transphobic tweet he wrote about fellow TLC star Jazz Jennings.

The 28-year-old reality star wrote the tweet in response to a promo posted on the TLC Twitter account.

“What an oxymoron… a ‘reality’ show which follows a non-reality. ‘Transgender’ is a myth. Gender is not fluid; it’s ordained by God,” Derick wrote.

Someone replied saying, “Is it necessary for a grown man to throw shade at a teenage girl?” and Derick responded by saying, “I want to be clear. I have nothing against him. I only have issue with the words and definitions being propagated here.”

Derick was once again slammed for yet another transphobic comment. “You mean her. Use the right pronoun if you have no issue,” one Twitter user responded.

TLC released a simple statement: “Derick Dillard‘s personal statement does not represent the views of TLC.”

Jazz took the high road with her response to the awful tweet.

    Why are we surprised y the ignorance and sheer disrespect to other humans coming from the Duggars. They can’t even respect the human rights of their own family members. He didn’t even have to speak on it at all. It was a promo from the network.He’s lucky there are still ppl who watch anything coming from that family. Regardless of anything he should have kept moving and not said a word. Instead he chose to speak on twitter ron a network promo. Not a Duggar promo but a promo for TLC. Maybe he should speak on starting GoFundMe’s for mission trips and them using the money to live away the other ppl on the mission. Or not doing the whole mission. Or going to countries where they tell you not to bring babies and things because of possible diseases and they went and did it anyways. Lets talk about the fact that he invited his wife abuser to his wedding. Theres a host of things he scanned over but he picked on a child when he’s a grown man.

    exactly…i don’t understand why a comment to a promo that had nothing to do with him nor his show needed comment? they didn’t even tag him. It was to purely get clicks and to show ignorance on his part.

    I wish I could exist in this world without ever seeing or hearing the name “d*ggar” or any of their garbage opinions about anything, ever. such trash. I hope TLC feels ashamed for giving these disgusting people a platform.

    “TLC released a simple statement: ‘Derick Dillard‘s personal statement does not represent the views of TLC.’ Actually, if you keep giving them a platform to spew their hate, then yes, that does represent your views, TLC.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! This boy a fool!!!! He say “I want to be clear. I have nothing against him”

    Yet, he does not speak about incest and sexual abuse which the Duggars have readily admitted is commonplace among their cult. Why isn’t he concerned about that? Why does he not blast blanket training training, the use of a rod, pinching and the horrendous “Train up a Child”? Why does he not address the subservience of the women in their cult and the lack of a proper education? Why doesn’t he worry about all this instead of begging for money so he could convert Catholics?

    I simply cant understand TLC ‘s fascination with the Duggars
