Derick Dillard Attacks Jazz Jennings AGAIN, Gets Torn Apart on Twitter

by at .

If you're a fan of the Duggar family, then you're probably already aware that Derick Dillard has been fired from Counting On as a result of his decision to berate and harass fellow TLC star Jazz Jennings.

Back in November, Dillard directed an unprovoked social media tirade at Jennings, a transgender teen who also stars in a reality show on the network.

In the months since, neither Derick nor his wife, Jill Duggar, has filmed any scenes for her family's popular series, and it doesn't look as though they'll be returning to the spotlight anytime soon.

These days, it seems that Derick is trying his best to make amends, but as usual, he's just digging himself a deeper hole.

The latest Derick dust-up has had to do with the former reality star's views on the national gun control debate.

Last week, Dillard attacked the survivors of the Parkland school shooting for behaving in a "ridiculous" fashion.

Needless to say, his comments were not well-received.

Yesterday, he tweeted a link to an article in which he was criticized for being critical of traumatized teens.

"No, I criticized the media’s use of kids again...like @TLC uses Jazz," Derick tweeted in his own defense.

"My heart goes out to the victims, but all ideas should be heard, and subjected to criticism."

He probably would've been better off not bringing up Jazz up again, but ultimately it was a pretty tame comment by Derick standards.

Unfortunately, when fans responded to the tweet, Derick chose to engage with them in offensive fashion:

When one Twitter user accused Derick of bullying Jazz, Dillard responded:

“Hi, please realize that I never said anything against him.

"If you read that in a tabloid, I encourage you to be extremely skeptical of anything put out by any opinion or gossip publication."

Yes, while claiming that he can't understand why people think he's being unkind to Jazz, Derick once again misgendered the girl.

Not surprisingly, fans weren't having it:

“If you are uncomfortable or against using the pronoun ‘her’ you could just use the name ‘Jazz’,” wrote one follower.

“You don’t have to go out of your way with the ‘he’ and ‘him.’ It would be the kind thing to do. Just sayin.”

“You are a hypocrite and a child abuser and a bully,” tweeted another.

A third slammed Derick as an “ignorant piece of sh-t.”

Dillard has yet to respond to the latest round of criticism against him.

As for the Parkland issue, however, Dillard is sticking to his guns - literally.

He recently tweeted a link to a post about a conspiracy theories and alleged anti-gun media biases with this description:

"True; I think it’s pretty obvious.  My wife has over 200,000 followers and still hasn’t been verified."

Well Der, if it's any consolation, now that you've gotten her kicked off her show, Jill probably won't have that many followers for long!
