TLC Star's Husband Posts Disgustingly Transphobic Statement Against Another TLC Show's Star

TLC Star's Husband Posts Disgustingly Transphobic Statement Against Another TLC Show's Star

Twitter was quick to condemn the comments.

19 Kids and Counting star Derick Dillard is in hot water after making transphobic remarks on Wednesday.

Dillard, who is married to Jill Duggar, became incensed by a tweet from TLC advertising its show I Am Jazz, which follows the life of a transgender 16-year-old, Jazz Jennings.

Remarking that "'transgender' is a myth," Dillard's tweet went on to state that "gender is not fluid; it's ordained by God."

Dillard, a 28-year-old father of two, is part of a family that is no stranger to controversy.

In 2015, reports revealed that Josh Duggar had molested four of his sisters and a babysitter, which led to TLC temporarily cancelling 19 Kids and Counting.

And the show that took its time slot? I Am Jazz. Which could potentially be a factor in Dillard's negative tweet.

Twitter instantly took Dillard to task:

Dillard claimed to have "nothing against him," of course refusing to use Jazz's preferred pronoun:

But for some, that wasn't enough:

Many felt like it might be time to take the Duggars off the air for good:

Looks like Dillard needs to think twice next time before tweeting:
