Derick Dillard Just Went After Transgender People Again

Now that he's been fired from TLC, Derick Dillard has a lot of free time on his hands.

And the controversial reality star is using said free time to do what got him fired in the first place:

Heartlessly attack transgender individuals at every opportunity.

Yes, just as Dillard went after Jazz Jennings in a series of bigoted Tweets, the former Counting On cast member has once again set his sights on the LGBT community.

Scroll down to see the latest shot Derick fired; to read the reaction to his harsh insult; and to relive Dillard's ugly history when it comes to this topic…

You can see Dillard’s caption: “A friend shared this and called it out for what it is, child abuse! How unfortunate what children are subjected to in the name of progressive understanding.”

3. Facebook Followers Thankfully Clapped Back

HARD. As you can see here, a couple even referenced Josh Duggar in citing what actual “child abuse” means.

4. More Backlash:

More backlash
These responses do make us wonder why these people were “Friends” with Derick to begin with. But at least they aren’t holding back.

5. Derick Does Have His Supporters, Of Course

Derick does have his supporters of course
Try telling a teenager struggling everyday about who he or she is that this is just a “disagreement” and everyone is entitled to an opinion. Sheesh, people.

6. There’s a History Here

In August of 2017, Dillard attacked Jazz Jennings, a 17-year old transgender individual who has a show on TLC.

Transgender Model SLAMS Briana Renee, Estranged Husband as Totally Dysfunctional”

As previously detailed, Briana Renee and Matt Grundhoffer are getting a divorce.

News of this split comes as a surprise to exactly no one who has been following the private life of the Little Women: LA star and her mate.

But it’s an especially obvious and welcome development to a transgender model named Plastic Martyr.

(Editor’s Note: We somehow doubt this is her real name.)

In response to Renee confirming she is finally leaving Grundhoffer, following many months of contention as a result of the latter’s admitted infidelity, Martyr slammed the estranged couple when asked to comment by Radar Online.

“If this isn’t all done for most publicity – because they are delusional and attention-hungry – then I say bravo,” the 28-year old said.

She then exclaimed triumphantly:

“The most dysfunctional relationship is over!”

Martyr (pictured below) was actually featured on Little Woman: LA after Grundhoffer was caught sexting her

But whatever feelings Renee’s husband apparently had for the model are most definitely NOT reciprocated.

In this same Radar interview, she refers to Grundhoffer as a “cheating son of a bitch” who “fetishized” her with his disgusting messages.

While it may be clear that Renee and Grundhoffer were not meant to be, their divorce is still unfortunate for one very precious reason:

The stars are parents to a 16-month old son.

They each also have a child from previous relationships that they had been raising together, which explains why the two are actually still living in the same house.

While sleeping in separate bedrooms, Briana and Matt are trying to figure out how to best move ahead with their break-up without damaging these children. 

But Martyr doesn’t have any sympathy.

She says Renee “will do anything and step on anyone to get ahead.”

It’s unclear why she has such a harsh opinion of the short Lifetime star, but her connection with Grundhoffer goes back to July of 2016.

During that time, he sent the model naked photos and made sexual advances toward her via Insgtagram.

Shortly afterward, Plastic guest-starred on the reality show and got into a pretty heated argument with Tonya Banks.

It certainly sounds as if Renee and Grundhoffer are making the right decision in going their separate ways, but a friend of the couple doesn’t think the split will last.

This person tells Radar:

“She’ll back with him a week. She can’t stand to be alone.”


Derick Dillard: Officially Axed by TLC Over Transgender Comments

Derick Dillard is persona non grata at TLC.

The network has gone ahead and made this official.

Back in August, the 28-year old husband of Jill Duggar made headlines when he attacked 17-year old transgender Jazz Jennings, who, like Derick’s wife and her family, has a show on TLC.

Seemingly unprompted by anything other than the fact that Jennings stars on I Am JazzDillard wrote on Instagram at the time:

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

Jennings mostly took the high road in response, labeling Dillard a cyberbully and saying that she’s unfortunately accustomed to remarks from people such as him.

Fast forward to late last week and Derick was at it again, writing the following on Twitter:

I pity Jazz, 4 those who take advantage of him in order 2 promote their agenda, including the parents who allow these kinds of decisions 2 be made by a child.

It’s sad that ppl would use a juvenile this way.

Again, nothing against him, just unfortunate what’s on TV these days.

Ah yes, the classing “nothing against” the person whose lifestyle one thinks is sinful and shameful.

Derick added that “never bullied anyone,” but “just said I didn’t agree with what is being propagated on TV” and is “expressing my view of what should be treated as reality; if I say I feel like I am Nepali, that doesn’t make me so.”

In response to this most recent attack Jazz did not mention Derick by name.

But tweeted on Saturday:

“In the face of constant ignorance and hatred I prefer to disregard negative opinions and continue moving forward with love.”

TLC, meanwhile, was not as even-handed in its latest statement.

On its official Twitter account, the cable network wrote this:

We want to let our viewers know that Derick Dillard has not participated in Counting On for months and the network has no plans to feature him in the future.

We want to reiterate that Derick’s personal statements do not reflect the views of the network.

TLC is proud to share the story of Jazz Jennings and her family and will continue to do so.

tlc statement

Some Duggar/Dillard fans, naturally, have fired back, claiming Derick is simply exercising his right to “free speech.”

Which is true. He’s not about to be imprisoned for his view.

But the right to free speech doesn’t mean one can say absolutely anything without any consequences.

The general future of Counting On remains unclear.

There has been chatter of late that the series may not return for a new season, largely due to Dillard’s ongoing controversial comments.

What do you think about what Derick said and how TLC responded?

Should the network finally cut ties with this family once and truly for all?


Derick Dillard Slams Transgender Community AGAIN!

What’s wrong with Derick Dillard lately?

Serious question.

He’s always been very Duggar-y, with some extra conservative views that many find offensive, and of course there’s that ongoing nonsense with the way he and Jill Duggar keep asking for money from fans for no real reason.

But for the past couple of months or so, he’s been insisting on being even more awful than usual, and it’s getting kind of alarming.

For example, remember last week when he actually tweeted that the United States is “one of the least racist countries in the world”?

For real, that’s a thing he said. In 2017.

And then, in August, he made the unfortunate decision to bash Jazz Jennings, a fellow TLC reality star.

Jazz stars in a long-running show called I Am Jazz, which is all about her life as a 16-year-old transgender girl. She’s also an absolute doll.

But instead of being supportive of a co-worker, or, you know, instead of being a decent human being, Derick saw TLC tweet a promo for her show and decided to respond with the following:

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

And then, when he started getting some criticism for that statement, he added “I want to be clear. I have nothing against him. I only have issue with the words and definitions being propagated here.”

Note the misgendering — Jazz is a “her.” not a “him,” and it would have taken literally nothing away from Derick to show her that little bit of respect.

But he didn’t because he’s awful, which is kind of the whole point we’re making here.

And now, two months after making those original statements against Jazz and the idea of being transgender in general, he’s doubling down on the awfulness.

Over the weekend, he retweeted a quote from Janice Raymond, a noted radical feminist activist who is also known to have extremely transphobic views.

“No one — women, men, children or transgender persons — should be subjected to any form of exploitation or targeted for discrimination,” the quote begins.

“Transsexual and transgendered persons are entitled to the same human and civil rights as others.”

The quote goes on to say that “Recognizing these rights, however, does not mean that we must accept that hormones and surgery transform men into women and women into men …”

“Or that persons who self-identify as members of the opposite sex, are what they subjectively claim to be.”

Derick retweeted all of that mess, and just in case he didn’t make himself clear, he also wrote “I agree with Janice Raymond on this.”

It’s just … why?

Even if he believes in these backwards views, and he’s made it very, very clear that he does, why does he feel the need to continue to talk about it?

It’s disrespectful, it’s cruel, and you know it’s got to be angering his employers.

His Twitter followers don’t get his game here, either.

“Derick, your ignorance is going to tweet yourself and your in laws out of a big TLC paycheck if you don’t just shut up,” one person advised him.

Another pointed out “The bible says thou shall not judge. Aren’t there much bigger things in life u should be preaching about? Did u feel good about hurting Jazz?”

One particularly sassy person turned Derick’s logic against him, asking “So you’d have no problem with me rejecting your subjective claims to be a good Christian, husband, father and overall decent human being?”

So Derick, your next step really isn’t that difficult …

Just shut up, OK?
