Derick Dillard says Jazz Jennings' gender reconstruction surgery is 'child abuse'
Derick Dillard has been slamming Jennings, and the whole transgender community in general, and says his feelings arise from his 'deep Christian faith'
Derick Dillard is not done being a total piece of sh*t. Continuing his infamous transgender hate posts on Twitter this Thursday, the fired Counting On star bashed trans star Jazz Jennings yet again over her recent gender reassignment surgery. Jennings happens to be the star of TLC series "I Am Jazz."
“Jazz Jennings Says She’s ‘Doing Great’ After Undergoing Gender Confirmation Surgery,” read a tweet from PEOPLE. Soon after, and much in tune with his homophobic and transphobic ways, 29-year-old Dillard retweeted the post writing: “This kind of thinking should not be encouraged by media. A system that allows this kind of child abuse is clearly broken.”
Dillard is no newcomer to this game of hatred towards Jennings as he has previously said that his hatred for Jennings and the whole transgender community stems from his deep-rooted Christian faith.
Jennings’ fans were quick enough to shame the star and cited excerpts from the Bible stating how people should not judge others.
“Don’t compromise your values for your voice,” he had tweeted in December right after getting fired from the Duggars' show for his transphobic views and comments. His initial tweet towards 17-year-old Jennings said the star's show was a fantasy based on a lie since, according to him, “Transgender is a myth. Gender is not fluid. It is ordained by God.”
It all started last year when he said Jennings is being used to 'push a larger agenda'. According to him, her show is 'an oxymoron’ as it is a 'reality show which follows a non-reality'.
Jennings addressed the ignorant tweet saying she was used to bullying and '[that day] was no different'. Dillard lashed back again, but this time he refused to use her preferred female pronouns too.
“I pity Jazz, [for] those who take advantage of him in order [to] promote their agenda, including the parents who allow these kinds of decisions [to] be made by a child. It’s sad that [people] would use a juvenile this way. Again, nothing against him, just unfortunate what’s on TV these days,” he wrote on Twitter.
His extremely idiotic and insensitive comment received a massive backlash (clearly, not enough) after which he had decided to come after Jennings once again, trying to slam her on Twitter, saying: "Hi, please realize that I never said anything against him."
Despite his behavior causing the Duggars to lose their show, he went on to hate on husbands Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent with homophobic tweets that he was shameless enough to even persistently defend.
“People are not our enemy; the darkness and sin of this world is,” he wrote. “You can fight for the pro-life cause and still love the unwed mother. You can love your homosexual friend while still supporting the sanctity of traditional marriage.”
His stupidity didn't stop there as, most recently, he also managed to gain massive social media flack for supporting a homophobic baker who refused to bake a cake for a gay wedding.
Clearly, there's no end to his nonsense!
