Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard, what a couple, right?
And we don’t mean that in a good way.
Jill’s all right for the most part, we guess, but Derick … that’s where the trouble lies.
Because Derick is the worst.
He’s homophobic, and he also has a bizarre, disturbing fascination with Jazz Jennings, a lovely child with her own TLC show who also happens to be transgender.
At this point, we can’t even count how many times he’s talked about Jazz — who, again, is a child — in cruel, hateful ways.
He got so obsessed with insulting her that TLC fired him and Jill from Counting On last year.
And yes, Derick will swear up and down that they weren’t fired, he just decided their family needed to quit the show, but … come on.
If all of that wasn’t enough to prove his awfulness, he also attacked survivors of the Parkland school shooting more than once, because they were a little too liberal for his taste.
That’s what his problem boils down to, essentially: he’s extremely conservative, but in the dumbest, most offensive way possible.
Another thing about Derick is that he doesn’t seem to work, but whenever anyone brings it up, he’s quick to tell everyone that he has a job, thank you very much.
Except he’ll never say exactly what that job is.
A funny thing happened last month, though, and that funny thing is that Derick began attending law school.
He seems to be really into the whole thing, which is good — if he ends up being a lawyer, he could probably stop asking Duggar fans for money.
But in a new post she made on Instagram, Jill is still acting like he has a job.
Let it go already, guys.
Along with the above photo, she wrote “Love this man! He gets up early to head out before traffic gets bad, works all day, then comes home after most people and puts more energy to invest in our boys and me!”
“You’re still my fave!”
She added nauseating hashtags like “forever mine,” “man of my dreams,” “you’ve got my heart,” and “I’m so in love,” and “grateful wifey,” because she loves him, OK?
Here’s the problem.
They’ve both been so weird for so long about Derick working, and so defensive whenever anyone says he’s unemployed.
If he stays home to take care of the kids, that’s fine, you know? If they’re living off Duggar money, it’s all right.
But even though Derick is in law school, and even though he’s flat out said that these days, he’s either sleeping, in class, or in his school’s library, Jill’s still going on about how he “works all day.”
Yeah, law school is hard work, we imagine, but we all know what’s happening here.
And her Instagram follwers were quick to call her out.
Several of them asked if he was working, and one straight out told her “He doesn’t work though.”
“Full time college is not a job!” another explained. “Does it pay him? No.”
“His ‘job’ is law school,” someone else wrote, “and their only source of income is the excessive **link in bio** posts. He’s not remarkable in the slightest.”
For another explanation, one person theorized that “Jill uses ‘working’ to describe anytime Derick steps over the threshold into the world.”
Hilariously, another of Jill’s followers said that “She is so desperate for him to look good, you’d think he discovered penicillin.”
Like we said, it’s great that Derick is setting himself up for a good career by going to law school, and we’re sure it is hard work.
But why is it so insanely difficult for anyone in this family to admit that the man is unemployed?
