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

This is What He Tweeted 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."

8. Jazz Took the High Road in Response

Jazz Took the High Road in Response
She simply said the following of Dillard's Tweet: "Every day I experience cyber-bullying, but I keep sharing my story. Today was no different." Pretty amazing of her, right?

9. Another Attack Against Jazz

Another Attack Against Jazz
Unprompted by anything except his own myopic belifs, Dillard Tweeted 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. It’s sad that ppl would use a juvenile this way. Again, nothing against him, just unfortunate what’s on TV these days."
