Derick Dillard Just... Asked Jazz Jennings and Emma Gonzalez to Coffee?!?

by at . Comments

Derick Dillard must have just been hacked.

That's the only explanation we can come up with for what the former TLC reality star wrote this week on Twitter.

Derick Dillard and Child

As anyone who follows Dillard on social media knows well by now, the guy is not a fan of transgender individuals - or, apparently, high school students who manage NOT to get shot to death by crazed gunmen.

No, really:

Earlier this month, Dillard labeled survivors of February's horrific Parkland, Florida shooting as "ridiculous."

He wrote that networks are using these teenagers to push for a "liberal agenda" because the kids have been outspoken about their desire for nationwide gun reform.

Along with this criticism, Dillard has taken every available opportunity to slam Jazz Jennings, a transgender reality star who anchors her own series on TLC.

Just this week, Dillard referred to Jennings as a male, pissing off many Internet users, which was merely the latest time Derick went off on the Jazz for no real reason at all.

Except for his intolerance of the LGBT community, that is.

Jazz Jenning on Insta

Jazz Jennings is a role model for other transgender teenagers. For Derick Dillard? Not so much.

It all started last August when Dillard bashed the entire concept of a transgender person as a myth.

"What an oxymoron... a 'reality' show which follows a non-reality. 'Transgender' is a myth. Gender is not fluid; it's ordained by God," he Tweeted at the time.

Then there was this comment left by Dillard in November:

"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."

TLC eventually fired Dillard for these insensitive and inappropriate remarks, much to the delight of people who don't have hate in their heart and do have open minds.

So that's how we arrived at this point.

That's all the preamble to a Tweet from Dillard that we never expected to read.

Emma Gonzalez

Emma Gonzalez cried tears of anger and pain over her fellow students getting killed. Derick Dillard wasn't very moved, however.

On February 24, Jennings re-Tweeted a video of Gonzalez speaking out at an anti-gun rally.

It was the speech that made Gonzalez into a true American hero, in the minds of many, at least.

"This is so powerful. I’m so proud of my community," wrote Jennings in response to the footage, which evidently prompted Dillard to... agree?

At least kind of? To some extent?

Tagging both Jazz and Emma in a March 6 Tweet (below), the controversial star wrote:

"Thinking about and praying for all those across the country, and especially in your community, who this horrific tragedy has affected.

"Let me know if you’re ever in Northwest Arkansas and I’d love to grab coffee and visit. #MSDStrong #neveragain."

Wait... what?!?!?!?

In the slightest defense of Dillard, he never did slam Gonzalez or her fellow students directly.

Instead, he's been saying that the mainstream media has been exploiting them to push for an anti-second amendment agenda.

You can agree with this belief or disagree with it, but we suppose it can still be possible that Derick can state it while still having sympathy for Emma and her classmates.

Then again, Dillard has since deleted the message above, perhaps because he had regrets about posting it... or perhaps because he really was hacked!

We may never know.

But it's probably safe to go back to hating Dillard and his hate-filled view of a world he doesn't ever try to fully understand.

That's what we're gonna do.
