Derick Dillard Lashes Out After Jazz Jennings Rebuffs Anti-Trans Attacks

Former Counting On star Derick Dillard seems unable to stop his bigoted social media attacks on trans teen TV star Jazz Jennings.

Fortunately, Jazz doesn’t care what Derick thinks, which is what the kids call a big mood.

But even though Jazz is doing her level best to ignore his hate, Derick is firing back and doubling down on his claim that Jazz’s very existence is some form of child abuse.

Derick Dillard still doesn’t have a job, and some wonder if that might be why he has so much extra time to tweet hateful things about Jazz Jennings and the trans community.

In a recent interview, Jazz, who underwent gender confirmation surgery known as bottom surgery in June, said that she has a don’t-feed-the-trolls approach to Derick’s vitriolic tweets.

She says that he’s just trying to elicit a reaction, and that she’s not going to give him what he wants.

A Twitter account that appears to primarily exist to attempt to engage with various celebrities asked Derick if he has a response.

Derick, seemingly thirsty for the attention, was only too happy to reply.

“I just speak out against child abuse, and especially those who promote it, because it’s the right thing to do,” Derick claims in a tweet.

“It’s just absolutely awful,” he has decided. “And should not be celebrated.”

Obviously, parents supporting their trans children are doing the literal opposite of child abuse.

But if you think that it’s hypocritical for a member of the extended Duggar family to make Derick’s statement, you’re not alone.

Fans laid into Derick on the subject of child abuse.

Fans had some serious questions for Derick.

“Do you think blanket training is child abuse?” asked on person on Twitter.

Blanket training, a practice of teaching months-old babies to obey their parents by using pain and fear, is advocated by Michael and Debi Pearl.

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are tied to this abusive practice.

“You should speak out against Michael and Debi Pearl. Children have actually died at the hands of parents upholding the Pearls view of ‘child rearing.’ That’s child abuse,” says another tweet.

“Teaching parents how to physically abuse infants and children,” the tweet continues. “Speak out against them.”

But the practice of hitting babies to break their will at a young age isn’t the only child abuse scandal in the Duggar family.

“You seemed to have no problem appearing on a TV show of a family that forced their sexually abused daughters to appear on Fox News,” accused another tweet.

The tweet went on that the girls were forced “to say that none of them even knew what their brother was doing to them because they were all asleep, when the police report told a different story.”

Another tweet also brought up Josh Duggar, asking: “So, when are u gonna speak up about your in laws promoting child abuse by protecting ypur brother in law?”

That tweet continued: “Or does that not matter because they believe in God? You’re a hypocrite and a hateful man. You don’t get to hide behind god as a way of disguising that.”

Child abuse is an extremely upsetting subject. Countless children every day live in fear of a family member or supposed “caregiver.” The world does not do enough to protect its children. 

Fortunately, Jazz, who will be 18 on October 6, 2018, has a loving and supportive family who have cheered her on as a girl and as an advocate.

We only wish that more transgender children received love and support instead of responses like Derick’s.

While Derick’s anti-trans attacks on Jazz saw him booted off of Counting On, the good folks over at The Ashley note that I Am Jazz begins airing its fifth season in 2019.

It sounds like she’s right to ignore Derick’s social media vitriol. She doesn’t need it to stay relevant — but he does.


Cardi B ATTACKS Niki Minaj! Watch the Crazy Footage!


It was on between Cardi B and Nicki Minaj at a New York Fashion Week party on Friday night.

And we mean this literally.

The artists got into a physical altercation.

Both stars showed up at the Harper's Bazaar's shindig yesterday evening, with Cardi "aggressively approached [a] table" at which Nicki was sitting, according to TMZ.

"Let me tell you something," an onlooker alleges Cardi said to her rival, priot to lunging at Minaj and then getting pulled away by others at the party.

As she was being dragged in the opposite direction, however, Cardi HURLED A SHOE at Minaj.

No charges have been filed and we don't think police were even called to the scene.

But the tension remains, that's for sure.

Just after 12 a.m. PST this morning, Cardi wrote the following on Instagram:

I've let a lot of s–t slide! I let you sneak diss me, I let you lie on me, I let you attempt to stop my bags, f–k up the way I eat!

"You've threatened other artists in the industry, told them if they work with me you'll stop f–kin with them!! I let you talk big s–t about me!!

"I've worked hard and come too far to let anybody f*** with my success!!!!  Bitches talk about all that s**** in they raps but in real life are p***y."

Insiders claimed that Cardi didn't intend on really fighting with Nicki, just on confronting her about lies Minaj had supposedly been spreading about her.

While she was being taken away, an elbow slammed Cardi in the face and gave her a noticeable lump.

Pretty crazy stuff, huh?

Here is Cardi's full statement:

And you catch watch footage of the near-brawl here.

The footage isn't totally clear, but you can get a clear idea of how nutty things got.

Lamar Odom: I Had 12 Strokes and 6 Heart Attacks During My Coma!

In 2015, Lamar Odom's health crisis terrified his fans, his loved ones, and especially his then-soon-to-be-ex-wife, Khloe Kardashian.

Despite the salacious circumstances — he was rushed to the hospital from a brothel, after all — there are still things that we don't know about that scary time.

Now, Lamar is opening up about how close things got — and this is one for the medical textbooks.

Kevin Hart has a new sports-based comedy series called Cold as Balls.

In it, he sits down with Lamar Odom in icewater — a common tactic for athletes to reduce swelling and to flush lactic acid out of their bodies. For Hart's show, it's just a gimmick.

Lamar tells Hart exactly how bad things got during his famous 2015 health crisis.

"All my doctors that see me say I’m a walking miracle," Lamar reveals.

Lamar then makes an astounding statement: "I had 12 strokes and six heart attacks when I was in a coma,” 

12 strokes is more than most entire families have. And he had them while he was in a coma.

And, in case it needs saying, 6 is a lot of heart attacks for one person to have.

“Every day, I’m alive," Lamar says.

You know what? He sure is.

"It’s much better than the alternative," Lamar says, stating the obvious.

Even if you hold religious convictions that tell you that you have a pleasant afterlife ot anticipate, nobody is in a rush to get there. Life is life.

Lamar says that his "anxiety" and "bad decisions" were two huge factors behind his addiction struggles.

But though no one expects an athlete his age to nearly lose his life at a brothel, he says that he was surprised and awed to wake up with Khloe by his side.

"That was big," Lamar reveals.

Khloe, as you may recall, brought their divorce process to a grinding halt so that she could continue to have spousal visitations and spousal rights while he remained in the hospital.

Though he was grateful that Khloe and her family were so supportive during his recovery, he does admit that stress from his role in their family weighed heavily on him.

Shacking up with a Kardashian was a huge part of his life, and it had its drawbacks.

"It f–ked with my head, bro," he tells Hart. 

"It made it tough to go outside," Lamar explains. "Every day, waking up, watching TMZ seeing if you’re going to be on it for the wrong reasons."

Some celebrities become consumed by media coverage of them. For someone married to a Kardashian, it's almost mandatory.

"It’s not a comfortable feeling," Lamar understates.

In case you need a reminder, Lamar is 38 years old.

He was only 35 when this health crisis nearly claimed his life. A combination of his height, the stress that being a professional athlete can put on your body, and some inadvisable choices could have sent him to an early grave.

(Seriously, imagine if Khloe were a widow)

All of this talk about his brush with death is kind of a bummer, and it should be.

But can we just say what our favorite part of the interview was? It was when Lamar let Kevin Hart try on his two NBA championship rings. 

Hart replies that the rings would fit better on his legs than on his fingers.
