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."
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?
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."
That Was the Last Straw for TLC
On the heels of this latest remark, the network released a statement that made it clear it had nothing to do with Dillard any longer and wanted nothing to do with Dillard any longer.
The Statement Read as Follows:
We want to let our viewers know that Derick Dillard has not participated in Counting On for months. 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.
Has Dillard Apologized?
HA! Yeah, right! He's quoted another conservative reality star, Phil Robertson, sharing this image on Instagram to make it sound as if he does not actually hate transgender people.
