Jazz Jennings Dismisses Derick Dillard: Who Cares What He Says?!?

by at .

Jazz Jennings is still taking the high road when it comes to Derick Dillard.

But the transgender reality star has stepped out of her figurative car for a few minutes and talked more at length than usual about the disgraced former TLC personality.

Dillard has basically been engaged in a one-sided feud with Jennings for over a year now.

In the summer of 2017, he jumped on Twitter to slam the lead of I Am Jazz for the way in which she lives, writing on his social media account that gender is not "fluid" and that the concept of being transgender is a "myth."

He went on to write some other horrible stuff about Jennings (as chronicled below) and then got canned by TLC.

Jennings has said little about this close-minded bigot, but opened up a bit to Us Weekly on Thursday, September 20.

Below, we recount what she said and how she got to this point with Dillard, who really does suck so very very much...

"Honestly if someone has a negative opinion then I don’t really read or listen to them," she added." Like, why spread negativity? I listen to the people that are supportive who are saying great things - telling me that my message is meaningful and that I should continue telling my story."
