Jill Duggar Speaks Out After Derick Dillard’s Homophobic Rant

After Derick Dillard’s latest controversy, fans are encouraging former Counting On star Jill Duggar to dump Derick.

It looks like she’s still standing by her man. This time, she’s backing up his homophobic Twitter rant. At least, that’s what it looks like she’s saying.

Take a look at her cryptic post below and decide for yourself.

Taking to Instagram, Jill wrote — without any context:

“To disagree doesn’t = hate, or judgement.”

That is true enough … on certain subjects.

“Love doesn’t always = approval.”

That is absolutely true. You can love and support someone without personally liking, say, their new haircut.

“Just because I disagree with my child on something doesn’t mean I hate him.”

We should certainly hope not.

“And just because I love and forgive him doesn’t mean I approve of everything he does.”

That makes sense, too. Up to a point.

“You can be friends with, love, and care for people you don’t agree with 100%.”

Jill Duggar speaks out on IG

It’s not difficult to see that Jill is indirectly referring to Derick Dillard’s homophobic tweets, in which he attacked husbands Nate Burkus and Jeremiah Brent and their show, Nate & Jeremiah by Design.

It’s a home improvement show but, as with other series like Fixer Upper, it includes a personal touch about the designers’ lives.

Nate and Jeremiah are parents to two young children, which is apparently what had Derick so incensed that he had to tweet out his disdain for their show 

“What a travesty of family,” he wrote in the widely condemned tweet.

He continued, saying:

“It’s sad how blatant the liberal agenda is, such that it both highlights and celebrates a lifestyle so degrading to children on public television as if it should be normal.”

First of all, that tweet is of course appalling.

Though it is no surprise coming from Derick Dillard, who was fired from Counting On last year over his transphobic tweets about trans teen Jazz Jennings.

(Pro-tip: networks prefer for you to support their other shows, not condemn them, and when you’re a grown man repeatedly tweeting vile things about a teenage girl, you’re not going to come across as the good guy)

Second of all … it’s always funny (well, as funny as bigotry can get) when people refer to something like “the gay lifestyle.”

We know that they phrase it that way to make it seem like a peculiar choice than part of who someone is.

But, clearly, Nate and Jeremiah’s lifestyle is that they’re parents and designers and, now, reality stars. Those are all lifestyles.

Well, following the backlash that Derick incited with his homophobic rant, Derick continued.

He tried to defend himself without walking back his tweets, insisting that he has gay friends but he simply “doesn’t agree” … with their existence, we suppose.

(It’s powerfully reminiscent of the how can I be racist if I have black friends? argument that people still try to make sometimes)

Derick even suggested that The View was bullying him for being a Christian, even though a number of the hosts are Christians themselves and they mostly addressed gay parents whom they know and admire.

It seems clear that Jill Duggar is, once again, standing by her man.

Her post seems designed to defend herself from fans who share Derick’s homophobia — by stating that she does not endorse their “lifestyle” — and against Derick’s detractors, by saying that at least she and Derick don’t hate gay people.

Jill has shared some cringeworthy posts of her own in the past, including a transphobic prayer that disappointed many fans.

Fans didn’t have a difficult time connecting her new post to Derick’s most recent controversy, and some of the comments were excellent.

“Not a problem to disagree. The problem is to post on a public place that gives you access to many people, and you disparage other people! I do Not Believe the God I worship would want me to publicly disparage people.”

“Instead of encouraging someone you have now turned them away from you and probably have them not too interested in Your God. Yes you do have a right to your opinion, but remember for every action there is a reaction.”

“The reaction to your judgement is people don’t want to be around you any longer.”

“I’ll pray for God to soften your heart! They are a loving family trying to provide a loving home like any other family.”

Tristan Thompson Actually Speaks! And Plays!

Tristan Thompson balled out on Sunday afternoon.

By which, no, we don’t mean the dishonest baby daddy took some random Instagram model to a hotel room and railed her to orgasmic completion.

Instead, we mean the controversial power forward actually played meaningful minutes for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

As previously documented, Thompson had been essentially benched by Head Coach Tyronn Lue over the past few weeks.

Not because he cheated on Khloe Kardashian, as some outlets suggests, but because his limited skill set on the court negatively affected the Cavs’ offense.

However, in Game 7 of his team’s first round playoff series against the Indiana Pacers, Thompson was named a starter… and ended up rewarding his coach’s faith in his abilities.

Big time.

Thompson scored 15 pounds and grabbed 10 rebounds, helping the Cavs eliminate the Pacers and move on to face the Toronto Raptors in round two.

It’s VERY safe to assume Thompson will see many minutes tomorrow night in Game 1 as well.

In response to his breakout performance, Thompson took to Instagram for the first time since his Khloe cheating scandal broke about three weeks ago.

Did he apologize to his girlfriend?

Vow to be a better man?

Share a photo of daughter True Thompson?

No, no and no.

Thompson simply reference the game and the home crowd in his not-so-revealing message.

“WHAT AN ATMOSPHERE IN THE Q!! GREAT WIN #OnToTheNextOne,” wrote Thompson after Cleveland’s 105-101 victory.

post by tt

As you can see from one comment above, not all fans are ready to forgive Thompson just because he rolled hard to the basket yesterday, finished strong and used his hustle to assist on many second-chance points for the Cavs,

“You’re still fowl if the only thing that’s important,” reads one remark in response to his post.

“Those skanks won’t want to know you when you’re old and washed up. Your daughter probably won’t either.”

For the first time in awhile, however, Thompson’s name was trending on Twitter for a reason aside from his wandering penis and inappropriate behavior.

Folks were talking about Thompson for what he did on the court Sunday, although these exploits also led to many easy jokes for some to make on social media.

To wit:

thompson slams

LOL at Thompson playing hard because he doesn’t want to go home to Cleveland.

It is true that Tristan and his colleagues are now off to Toronto for the next two games in this second round series.

He gets to be in an entirely different country than Khloe for a few days! No wonder he wanted yesterday’s win so badly, right?!?

A previous report had alleged that Thompson is angry his infidelity has become so public. He’s not dealing with the hate very well, apparently.

But whatever, right? Khloe isn’t dealing with his cheating very well, either, we’re sure.

Should she finally end the relationship? Will she finally end the relationship?

We delve into those questions below:

Abby Lee Miller Speaks Out After Cancer Diagnosis

Late last month, Abby Lee Miller was released from prison after eight and a half months behind bars, and moved to a halfway house. 

Abby underwent treatment for what was believed to be an infection … and has unfortunately been diagnosed with cancer.

Now, she’s released a selfie from the hospital with a message for her supporters.

Early last week, Miller underwent emergency surgery over pain in her neck and increasing levels of paralysis in her extremeties.

At the time, it was believed to have been caused by an infection. 

Unfortunately, it turned out to be more complicated than an infection, and will need more than antibiotics to treat.

The former Dance Moms star has cancer, specifically in the form of Burkitt lymphoma, a type of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma that was first identified in the 1950s.

Now, for the first time since that diagnosis, she’s opening up with a statement.

And that statement accompanies a powerful selfie from her hospital bed.

In the captions beside this very vulnerable photo, Miller writes:

“So much gratitude and love for those who listened, those who looked deeper, and those who leapt into action.”

She doesn’t mention the cancer, but … she knows that we all know.

“So much more I wish I could say……about how quickly your life can change at the hands of others.”

She extends her thanks.

“Thanks for [the love].”

She spelled out that love with emojis, and then followed it with a number of tags.

“#abbyleemiller #abbylee #aldc #aldcla #aldcalways #dancemoms #iwilldance”

That caption is very raw and genuine and it really tugs at your heartstrings.

(If she were a Millennial, she probably would have written “I lived b–ch,” after the meme, and left it at that, but there’s probably no wrong way to post a selfie after you’ve undergone surgery)

The good news is that Burkitt lymphoma has a 90% survival rate.

The bad news is that the survival rate is said to be lower among adults, among whom this particular form of lymphoma is considerably less common.

That said, Abby Lee Miller is nothing if not a fighter.

She is expected to undergo both chemotherapy and radiation therapy.

This is actually the first glimpse that Abby Lee Miller has given the world of herself following her stint in prison, during which she apparently lost a great deal of weight.

(They weren’t starving her — she underwent weight loss surgery before going behind bars)

You can see how the shape of her face has changed, even though you can only see part of it.

All things considered, she looks great.

We wish that the photo had come under better circumstances.

No one, even controversial reality stars, deserves cancer.

As she undergoes treatment, one of the top priorities for Abby’s well-being will be that she remain hydrated.

Doctors are not yet certain whether her lymphoma has spread, as it is known to do.

The good news about Burkitt lymphoma, which is a fast-spreading cancer, is that it tends to respond more quickly to treatment than slow-spreading cancers.

We certainly hope that Miller will make a full recovery as soon as possible.

Blac Chyna Fight Victim Speaks Out: “I Slapped the Sh-t” Out of Her!

It was SO very on this weekend between Blac Chyna and a woman named Lex.

In case you missed the awesome news, Rob Kardashian’s baby mama got into a pretty serious melee on Easter Sunday at Six Flags Great Adventure.

The reality star and occasional sex tape maven was trying to enjoy a peaceful day at the amusement park with her two kids when a woman dared to touch little Dream and refer to Chyna as a “hood rat.”

This is the story Chyna has told to TMZ at least.

The Instagram model says she had no choice but to fight back, especially considering this woman actually touched her baby daughter.

And fight back Chyna most definitely did, as evidenced by the following WILD video:

However, and this is truly shocking, the woman on the receiving end of Chyna’s anger tells a different story.

Named Lex (short for Alexis), she tells TMZ that the incident started because she complimented Chyna’s nanny on Dream, saying the child was cute.

She then patted Dream’s hand

Chyna noticed the hand-patting, according to Lex, and started to curse her out, warning her to stay away.

Lex alleges that a physical altercation only began with Chyna’s boyfriend, some Z-Lister rapped named YBN Almighty Jay, actually punched her and her sister numerous times.

She claims she never came to blows with Chyna and that security guards quickly intervened, advising everyone to go on their way without filing a report.

In her retelling to TMZ, Lex is very calm and collected, which is a stark contrast to how she detailed the fracas on Twitter a few hours after it occurred.

“[S]ooo I was having a good little time and I see black chyna’s beautiful baby right?” wrote the 18-year old early Monday morning, adding:

“So I’m like awwwww like omg this baby is so cute (not even knowing this was her f—ing baby) so I’m guessing it was the nanny but she rolled the baby towards me right?”

blac victim

We’re just gonna sit back and let Lex share the details… because they’re pretty amazing coming straight from her social media account:

So a lady comes up to me and she’s like ‘omg was that you black Chyna was talking about? She said she was goonna whoop yo a—’ so now I’m in tears like lmaoooo for what wtf this b— think cause she black chyna she won’t get slapped.

So y’all know me ….. I just slap TF when I say THEE DOGGGGGGG S— I slapped the dogggg s— out hg. o when I did her f—ing boyfriend start socking on me and my sister LMAOOOOOO LIKE REALLY SOCKING ON US.

But I mean I had a blast. I just slapped the s— outa black chyna and fought her boyfriend and all her lil friends but this n— was really socking on us he’s really a b— period.

Perhaps realizing that this account could make legally liable, Lex has since deleted most of these messages.

blac2

But she did address Chyna’s fans at one point, as you can see above, seemingly admitting that she DID punch Blac at least once:

“I’m not finna be replying to y’all mad a— fans lmao period idgaf period don’t let nobody walk your f—ing baby to a stranger weirdo !!

“I touched her baby with one finger on her hand idc how nobody feel and like I said I only slapped her because she thought she wanted to fight.”

Elsewhere, a short while later, Lex once again had second thoughts.

She struck a very different tone after hearing from those out on the Internet, many of which were saying mean things about her:

blac3

As for the Kardashians?

Rob has not yet said anything about this incident, while a source tells People Magazine the family is glad he’s no longer engaged to her.

Very, very, very glad.

Their “biggest concern is that Dream is safe,” this insider says.

Blac Chyna Speaks Out About Her Fight Video: I Don’t Condone Violence, But …

Blac Chyna went out to spend Easter Sunday with her children, Dream and King. They were accompanied by their nanny, their entourage, and by Chyna's hot 18-year-old boyfriend.

Unfortunately, as a viral fan video shows, Chyna got into a violent-looking altercation with someone else in the park. As you'll see below, she looked ready to wield her own child's toy car as a weapon.

Now, Chyna is breaking her silence on the video and speaking out about violence.

Blac chyna feels dreamy

How did you spend your weekend? For Christians — and many secular households — it was Easter. For Jewish households, Passover began. Sunday was also April Fool's Day.

Blac Chyna celebrated by taking her children, King and Dream, to California’s Six Flags Magic Mountain. It's a great place to go … unless you get greyouts from roller coasters.

Unfortunately, as a fan video revealed, Chyna got into some sort of altercation while at the park.

After reportedly being slapped by a woman, Blac Chyna is shown trying to wield her daughter's pink car toy as a weapon, seeming to try to throw it at the woman with whom she had a beef.

She's not very effective at it and, after a while, the people around her try to stop her, but her fury seems very evident.

There is no sign that either Dream or King was around to see any of this.

Blac chyna six flags fight

It is difficult to verify details, but a woman claiming to have been involved explained that she was at the park and, not knowing who Dream was and seeing her little car being pushed by a white woman — her nanny — she complimented how beautiful the baby was.

(Dream really is too cute for words)

The nanny thanked her and this woman says that she interpreted that the nanny had given her permission to touch the baby. It sounds like she booped Dream's nose or cheek or something like that, and walked on.

She was then confronted by Chyna, she says, who then departed in a fury. She says that she then heard that Chyna was ranting about wanting to beat up this woman for having touched her baby.

According to this woman's statement — which, again, cannot be verified — she tried to talk things out with Chyna, who reportedly started taking off extra things that she was wearing.

As one might do if one is about to "throw down."

This woman says that her response to this apparent act of aggression was to slap Chyna.

Rob kardashian with dream on his birthday

You know who's loving this story?

Rob Kardashian.

He's back on Instagram, where he re-posted the video clip of Blac Chyna's fury, which you can see below.

In the captions, he wrote: "Just gonna leave this here."

Though reportedly the two are getting along better than they had in the past — in fact, one report even claims that Rob wants Chyna back — it sounds like he can't resist to urge to boost an embarrassing video of her.

At least it's not revenge porn, this time.

Dream kardashian is adorable

Here sits Dream in the stroller-slash-car as it's used for its intended purpose.

Blac Chyna spoke out about the incident on her Instagram story, saying:

"Being famous is hard enough dealing with scrutiny but when someone feels comfortable to come and touch your child it’s a whole other story."

Honestly, do not touch someone's baby without their permission. Though, in this case, there may have been a misunderstanding.

Chyna continues:

"I do not condone violence nor am I a violent person but shout out to all of the amazing mothers out there that will protect their children at all cost."

That's the first obligation of any parent.

"Love, King and Dream's mommy."

Blac chyna acts all sweet

This altercation might have been prevented with better communication.

Though obviously no responsible nanny is going to announce: "Yes, this is a celebrity's baby!" And perhaps this unnamed other woman could use some better boundaries.

It looks like Chyna needs to find a healthier way to express her anger, but we'd point out that it doesn't appear that anyone was hurt.

It also sounds like Chyna's heart was in the right place — she was trying to set boundaries to protect her children.

We just hope that they did not see their mother go off like that in the park.

Take a look:

Chris Brown Speaks Out on Karrueche Tran Dating Victor Cruz!

Folks, Chris Brown is expressing his feelings on social media again.

Usually that means some death threats are being issued and some serious trash is being talked.

But either Chris has turned over a new leaf or he recently got his hands on some extremely mellow indica, because we’re seeing a side of Breezy that we’ve never seen before.

Whatever the case, hopefully his long suffering ex Karrueche Tran can finally breathe a sigh of relief.

Chris and Karrueche broke up way back in 2015, but that hasn’t stopped Chris from continuing to interfere in her life.

Actually, the two of them broke up several times, but it was the revelation that Chris had a secret daughter from a previous relationship that finally pushed Karrueche over the edge.

We guess finding out the person you’ve been dating for years has been living a double-life the whole time is a deal-breaer for some folks.

Weird thing is, on the scale of bad behavior from Chris Brown, that’s actually pretty mild.

These days, Karrueche appears to be dating Victor Cruz of the New York Giants.

The couple went semi-public recently and Chris dealt with the news remarkable well (by Breezy standards, that is).

On an Instagram pic of the couple, Brown commented:

“They look really good together.”

That’s it. That’s all he wrote.

Now, it’s possible that that’s some sort of coded threat to Cruz, like when a Mafia dude kisses another dude on the lips and it means he’s been marked for death.

But in all likelihood, this is just Chris complimenting an ex he’s been broken up with for years.

You know, like normal, relatively sane people do.

That doesn’t mean Chris is actually normal or relatively sane, however.

No, in fact, it looks like he’s just directing his irrational rage at a different former flame these days.

“Chris is furious over the latest Rihanna pregnancy rumors,” a source close to Brown tells Hollywood Life.

“Every time Chris hears about Rihanna possibly being pregnant, he gets really bothered and totally freaks out.”

It seems like Chris gets bothered and freaks out pretty much any time anything happens, so we suppose it’s not shocking that he flipped when he heard that Rihanna might be pregnant.

It is surprising that he’s so mad he can’t even focus on his other grudges, though.

“Chris has a lot of love for Rihanna and he always wanted to be the one to have a family with her,” the insider claims.

“It makes him emotional to hear that she could be having someone else’s baby.”

The source adds:

“Chris has always felt that one day things might workout between them, so if the rumors turn out to be true, he will be heartbroken.” 

Yeah, Chris we’re pretty sure that ship has sailed.

It left harbor right around the time you brutally beat Rihanna and she fled the relationship in fear for her life.
