For a very brief time back in 2014, disgraced Counting On star Derick Dillard was an accountant at Walmart. According to his LinkedIn, he "worked with state and local tax jurisdictions across the US to conduct sales and use tax audits in an efficient manner, including research on tax law and practices, to insure full compliance and proper remittance, or refund of tax." Fun! But why didn't he get his CPA? Several redditors recently weighed in on the matter — and many think he "tried and failed."
"He's pretty lazy and dumb, so he did the bare minimum to get his degree but wasn't smart enough to become a CPA," one person speculated. "I don't think it's a worthless degree. It's a degree from a reputable school; I just think he is worthless and lazy." Another agreed adding, "Thats kind of my theory too. I mean he had to try, honestly. My husband's program director pretty blatently told him that his accounting degree is useless without the CPA, and that's public knowledge to anyone who has done any reading about accounting, and he doesn't seem like someone who is good at taking tests. Unless the test is, 'How do I sound really ignorant on twitter today?'"
The 29-year-old has gotten himself into hot water these days, spewing hateful messages towards members of the LGBTQ community. Most recently, he took aim at the cast of the new series Lost in Transition. "I really hope this is a series showing the devastation that mental illness causes, rather than presuming that these challenges are simply evidences of an improving society. #optimism," he wrote on Twitter.
Last year, Derick was fired from the Duggars hit TLC show for sharing his unwarranted comments on Jazz Jennings. "What an oxymoron… a 'reality' show which follows a non-reality," Derick tweeted in August. "'Transgender' is a myth. Gender is not fluid; it's ordained by God." Since then, he's also taken to his favorite platform to slam Nate & Jeremiah by Design stars Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent, calling their family a "travesty." Ugh.
