Derick Dillard Goes on Homophobic Rant, Is Still Just the Worst

Derick Dillard is just a truly awful, no-good person.

You know it, we know it, everyone who has had the terrible misfortune to check out his Twitter account knows it.

He just says so many awful things all the time about so many people — who could forget his favorite hobby of mocking Jazz Jennings, the transgender teenage girl who has her own show on TLC?

Or the way he constantly tries to defend his backwards, ignorant beliefs in the most obnoxious, arrogant way possible?

Or the way he constantly asks Duggar fans for money, even when he and his family worked on a reality show and even now that he insists he has a job now that they’re no longer on Counting On?

It’s just bad. It’s all bad.

And, wouldn’t you know it, Derick’s gone and made our opinion of him even worse by taking a sizable chunk of time yesterday to criticize Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent, the stars of Nate and Jeremy by Design.

If you’re not familiar, Nate and Jeremy by Design is a show on TLC, one of those home renovation and design shows that everyone loves so much.

The show has another layer though, because Nate and Jeremiah are also married.

They have a three-year-old daughter who’s been featured on the show, and they welcomed a son just last month.

They have a really, really adorable family, but it’s not a traditional family, so you know Derick just had to run his mouth about it.

Over on Twitter, he shared a promo for the show that TLC tweeted, and along with it he wrote “What a travesty of family. 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.”

So in one single tweet, he called Nate and Jeremiah’s beautiful family a “travesty,” said they were “degrading” their children on TV, insisted that they’re not “normal,” and suggested that the only reason they’d have their own show is because of “the liberal agenda.”

Not a great start, Derick.

When someone pointed out that what they do doesn’t affect him at all, he replied “They affect this poor child, as well as what perversions are celebrated.”

“If it were adultery, I doubt a network would be so quick to focus on the reality of it as if it were ok.”

Adultery and homosexuality aren’t on the same level at all, obviously, and it’s really disgusting to talk about their daughter this way — she looks like a super happy, well-loved kid.

Look, there are too many dumb tweets from Derick to dissect them all like this, so let’s just check out the highlights of his incredible ignorance, all right?

After getting called out for being so judgemental, he said “I’m not bashing the people, I’m just calling out the public agenda at play and how a network chooses what they highlight.”

“Christians should love all as Christ loved all. Take advantage of capitalism: boycott what you don’t believe in, but don’t boycott relationships.”

With all this talk about agendas, someone asked him about his, and he explained that “My agenda is love and truth. I try to follow Jesus Christ as best I can. I’m not perfect, but I do my best.”

Do better, buddy.

He said that his big issue with the show is the way their daughter is involved — a bit hypocritical, considering how many Duggar kids have been featured on the network.

But, as he explained it, “they absolutely have the right to share it, but I’m just calling Christians not to support its promotion in such a public sphere.”

Some sweet soul tried to make the argument that if God created everything, he created gay people, and therefore they are also “fearfully and wonderfully made.”

Derick argued that “Yes, everything was created perfectly. Unfortunately, it didn’t stay that way very long because a curse was brought through sin which affected the whole world.”

“That’s why Jesus came — to redeem it and be the needed savior for our sin. Praise God!”

It’s very clear, and it’s been clear for a long time, that Derick is not interested in ever considering the possibility that he could be wrong — and by “wrong,” of course we mean “ridiculous and hateful and so, so bigoted.”

So on a sweeter, lighter note, let’s check out Nate and Jeremiah’s responses to this mess.

Without replying directly to Derick, Nate tweeted “My hope with having a show like #NandJByDesign on @TLC, where we go into people’s homes and welcome viewers into ours, is that we can start to break down barriers & normalize the way our family looks & the way our family loves.”

Jeremiah added that the show “is about showing the many different faces of love and our universal connection through it.”

Isn’t that infinitely nicer than all that nonsense from Derick? 

Shame it’s just a part of that “liberal agenda,” huh?


Ben Seewald’s Sister Is Jim Bob Duggar’s Worst Nightmare

It should come as no surprise that the women of the Duggar family are a close-knit lot.

After all, it’s not as though they can go outside their family for female companionship.

The Duggar women follow a set of rules so strict that it basically forces them to stick to their own kind – which is probably the point.

But for all their father’s efforts to clip their wings, several Duggar women have left the nest, and in some cases, they’ve found themselves ill-equipped for the wider world – while in others, they’ve adapted with astonishing speed.

The best example of the latter case is probably Jinger Duggar, who began wearing pants in violation of her family’s strict dress code shortly after marrying Jeremy Vuolo.

Jinger’s oldest married sister, Jill Duggar, has pursued a more traditional lifestyle, in keeping with her family’s teachings.

And then there’s Jessa Duggar, who’s embarked down a middle path, not quite appeasing her parents, but not exactly rebelling, either:

Jessa is married to Ben Seewald, who leans slightly to the left of the ultra-conservative Duggars, in terms of his political and religious beliefs.

In the past, this has brought him into conflict with Jim Bob, such as the time Seewald endorsed the Black Lives Matter movement and expressed his belief in the right of NFL players to kneel for the national anthem.

Now, it looks as though Ben’s liberal (by Duggar standards) beliefs are no fluke.

In fact, it seems like the entire Seewald family espouses beliefs and lifestyles that would condemn them to hell under Jim Bob’s belief system.

That’s a photo of Ben’s parents standing alongside his sister, Jessica.

It was posted to the Seewald family Instagram page this week, along with the following caption:

“@jessicaseewald, congratulations on your new journey in law enforcement,” the Seewalds wrote.

“We sure do love you and are praying for the days ahead! #backtheblue.”

Becoming a cop might seem like just about the least rebellious thing in the world, but take a moment to reflect on what you’re seeing here:

That’s a young woman wearing pants and embarking on a career that’s been closed to women for most of its history.

Yes, Ben’s sister is basically Jim Bob’s worst nightmare come to life.

And Jessica’s rebellious (again, by Duggar standards) ways don’t end there.

The 21-year-old reportedly has a boyfriend named Philip, and the two of them do not follow the famous Duggar courtship rules.

And we think it’s safe to say Jim Bob would not approve of Jessica’s choice of attire:

Shorts! On a woman!

Michelle Duggar would probably need smelling salts if she laid eyes on this pic.

But if you’re worried that Jessica’s far-left views will tear the Duggar clan asunder, fear not:

As In Touch Weekly points out, Jessica is a gun-collecting Trump supporter who’s political beliefs lean far to the right.

Plus, her name starts with a “J,” so she’s probably just fine in Jim Bob’s book.

Farrah Abraham Gets Butt Injections, Has Daughter Film It, Is Still the Worst

Warning: this is weird. This is really, really weird.

But we’re talking about Farrah Abraham, so hey, you probably figure that out already.

And if you happened to read the headline before mindlessly clicking on the photo of Farrah because you knew that whatever the story was about, it would be entertaining and ridiculous?

Well, then you know that we’re in for a wild and crazy time.

Before we get into it though, it feels important to note that Farrah has never really understood that Sophia is a child and not a tiny adult.

She was waxing Sophia’s eyebrows when she was three years old, and when she was four, she spent a lot of time away from her promoting her sex tape and getting heavy into the adult industry.

At the time, she explained that it was OK because Sophia “has her own life and is doing her own thing,” and “it’s healthy that we have a break” from each other.

Again, Sophia was four.

Farrah often has very adult conversations with her daughter present, and she pulled her out of school so she could “homeschool” her, which seems to have meant getting her into modeling and bringing her along to places she has no business being.

And that’s what we’re talking about now.

Farrah gets lots of plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures, just in case you missed the memo or if you haven’t seen her face in the past few years.

She gets vaginal rejuvenation, she’s had a few boob jobs, that sort of thing.

But this week, she decided to get some butt injections, you know, since summer is coming up and all.

Which would have been fine, but she went and brought poor Sophia along for her appointment.

And she brought her in there when she was actually getting the injections. And made her stand behind her. And film it.

As you can see in the video above, Sophia was right there to witness the whole thing, which is just not great.

The whole thing is basically an ad, so we won’t bother transcribing the video — it’s just information about the injections, pretty boring stuff.

She did use a “mom life” hashtag in her caption though, which is pretty precious.

But obviously the thing everyone is zeroing in on with this video isn’t the injections or the details about the procedure or anything like that — it’s long-suffering Sophia there in the back.

Farrah injections

And boy, do people have a lot of feelings about it.

“Your daughter should not think she has to do this stuff to her body,” one person told her. “Keep her mind like a child as long as you can which u don’t.”

Can’t argue that.

Someone told her that she’s “the most disgraceful role model to that little girl,” and another said that “teaching your daughter about ruining her body at such a young age is very improper.”

“She doesn’t see the damage she’s causing to her child, consumed by money and greed,” one of Farrah’s followers wrote. “Sad.”

Believe it or not — just kidding, you’ll definitely believe it — there were several, several comments about how someone should call child protective services over this video.

Don’t worry though, Farrah herself jumped in the comments to explain everything.

“This is non-invasive just like blood work or getting shots,” the former Teen Mom OG star said.

She added that the person doing the injections “did an amazing job and our children our curious so more power to Sophia learning about aesthetics and health.”

Does she … does she think that this is part of educating Sophia? Is this one of her homeschool activities?

Also, let’s take a moment to consider the fact that the woman who wrote “our children our curious” is in charge of this kid’s entire education.

As for Sophia herself, she commented on the video as well, writing “This was weird. I would do squats my momma.”

Is this not the most bizarre story you’ve ever heard?


This Guy Did It! He Found the “Worst Person in the World!”

Ryan Case, Emmy Award-winning editor of Modern Family, was recently on board a flight apparently to Las Vegas.

On its own, this is a mundane subject.

But case happened to not only encounter someone he dubbed the "Worst Person in the World" for her mid-flight behavior…

… he subsequently Tweeted every detail as it took place in order to make sure everyone understand how how awful of an individual he was talking about.

In short: She was REALLY awful.

Oh. Wait. Sorry: I don’t care.

6. The Murder Will NOT Be in Self-Defense

I may kill her
But it will still be justified, trust me.

Justin Bieber: Why Was He the Worst SNL Host Ever?

Hmmm… is it too late for Justin Bieber to tell Bill Hader he's sorry?

The former Saturday Night Live cast member was a guest on Watch What Happens Live on Thursday, in promotion of his upcoming HBO series, when the topic turned to Hader's least favorite SNL host of all-time.

And the comedian didn't hesitate in giving a response:


The answer was undoubtedly Bieber, Hader said.

“He was in a bad place,” Hader said, thinking back to Bieber's much darker days and adding:

“Maybe he’s in a better place, but back then … It was rough.”

The artist served as host and musical guest on a February 2013 episode.

At the time, he was in the middle of a world tour at the time, having just released his third studio album, Believe, in June 2012… and drinking a lot, partying often and generally acting like a dick.

Hader told Bill Simmons on his podcast last week that Bieber yelled at some SNL staff members who were simply trying to do a wardrobe change for him, while showing up with a giant entourage.

He said similar things to Howard Stern back in May of 2013.

"Justin Bieber showed up with like 20 guys and every time – backstage is a very small constructed place – he had a guy holding a slice of pizza, a guy holding a Diet Coke," Hader told Stern, adding:

"You were trying to fight around all these people to get dressed."

Once again, Hader did try to be diplomatic about Bieber's terrible behavior and attitude.

"Everyone’s usually on great behavior. Everyone’s very excited. Most times it’s 100 percent and that’s why I think Bieber was the only one, in my experience.

"He just seemed, like, exhausted or at the end of a rope. He was just so huge."

It was a tough time for the star, who is sort of going through another one now as he tries to win back over Selena Gomez.

On the flip side, Hader also told Stern a few years ago:

“I had nice chats with [Bieber] when he was doing the scenes… he was a nice guy. He would try to do the best that he can.”

Watch Hader explain his issues with Justin below:

Caitlyn Jenner Bashes Trump: He’s the Worst EVER for Trans Rights!

Last year, like so many Trump voters, Caitlyn Jenner expressed bewilderment at Donald Trump’s policies and behavior.

But at times, she seemed ambivalent, following up criticisms with wearing a MAGA hat.

Now, however, she’s speaking out in no uncertain terms that Trump is “the worst ever” for trans rights.

On Thursday night, Caitlyn Jenner spoke about Trump to Newsweek at the Champions of Jewish Values International Awards Gala.

“As far as trans issues, this administration has been the worst ever.”

After historic gains in the LGBT+ community’s civil rights during the Obama administration, there have been massive setbacks under Trump.

“They’ve set our community back 20 years, easily.”

Part of that, of course, being Trump rescinding protections that allow public school trans students to safely use restrooms that match their gender.

Under Trump, trans students just have to hope that they go to a non-discriminatory school district. And that’s just part of the Trump administration’s pushes against transgender rights.

“It’s going to be hard to change,” Caitlyn says. “But we’ve been through these types of things before, and we’ll continue to fight it.”

Civil rights setbacks are to be expected from Trump, the man who launched his campaign by demeaning Mexican immigrants as “rapists” and who went to great lengths to appeal to his base of ignorant and bigoted voters.

But to some, including Caitlyn, this is a surprise.

See, Trump’s history of racism is well documented and goes back for decades.

In terms of transgender rights, however, he’s been viewed as somewhat progressive. For years, he allowed trans women to compete in beauty pageants.

During the 2016 Republican Primaries, Trump stated that Caitlyn Jenner — by name — could use “any bathroom she chooses” at Trump Tower. She even took him up on that.

He also said that North Carolina, whose legislature and famously despised one-term governor Pat McCrory had pushed through HB2 which banned civil rights ordinances, should allow trans North Carolinians to use whichever public restrooms they feel are appropriate.

Caitlyn Jenner has been a lifelong Republican, so he hoped that the Republican party would wholly accept her.

She also felt determined to take Trump at his word, despite warnings from basically every trans woman she knew — including actress Candis Cayne — that Trump was a danger tot he LGBT+ community.

It’s true that Trump never showed a personal investment in destroying the LGBT+ community. He’s not Mike Pence.

But … she was forgetting that a large part of the Republican party’s base sees trans people as a threat, and that Trump would need to court their approval.

Particularly in an effort to win over socially conservative legislators and to distract his base from his basically daily scandals.

In other words, Caitlyn forgot that her own party’s values do not value her or her community.

Leopard Face Political Meme

(This tweet remains evergreen for a reason, folks)

In some ways, Caitlyn Jenner has been a powerful spokeswoman for the trans community, using her platform to raise awareness and even to indirectly help other trans folks come out to their families.

She epically shut down Piers Morgan’s inappropriate questions about her genitals, which are none of anyone’s business.

At the same time, others feel that by voicing support for Donald Trump and Ted Cruz over the years, politicians who are a threat to trans rights, she’s betrayed her own community.

When she was confronted and called a fraud last year, it was because she enjoys the lifestyle of a rich white celebrity and is wildly out of touch with the lives of most trans women who have to live under Trump.

In other words, if she thinks that Trump’s policies are bad, it’s all so much worse for countless others.

Trump’s ban on transgender people serving in the military, a transparent appeal to his base of voters, has been rejected as discrimination.

The Pentagon is standing up for the troops.

But other things — like rescinding protections for trans students — will have to be undone by future Presidents.

Will Caitlyn Jenner put her foot in her mouth in future elections, and end up backing other anti-trans candidates because she thinks that, as a rich woman, they’ll represent her interests?

Or has she learned her lesson from Trump? Has America learned its lesson from Trump?

Only time will tell.
