The Duggars are saying buh-bye to their massive Tontitown, AR compound! Well, maybe. According to Radar Online, the reality star fam is switching churches, and Jill Duggar‘s (awful AF) husband, Derick Dillard hinted at the big move on Instagram.
“Pretty excited for this!” he captioned the photo, which shows a brand new Cross Church standing in Fayetteville, AR. Come Feb. 25, the Cross Church will be moving a few minutes up the road from 3484 W Wedington Drive to its new address at 2801 McMillan Road, a church-goer told the publication. “It is just built better for our needs,” they dished. “It has more parking, a larger space and it will seat more members.”
We’re guessing the reality stars are used to change, though. After all, a new promo for Counting On excluded Jill and Derick after he was fired from the hit show for making transphobic comments about Jazz Jennings.
Last summer, Derick took to Twitter to express his unwarranted opinion writing, “What an oxymoron… a ‘reality’ show which follows a non-reality. ‘Transgender’ is a myth. Gender is not fluid; it’s ordained by God.” To be clear, it seems like the problem didn’t lie with Derick’s anti-trans beliefs but it’s the way he chose to voice those beliefs, which came off as hateful. Although some fans thought TLC reacted too late, the network finally gave Derick the boot on Nov. 11.
“We want to let our viewers know that Derick Dillard has not participated in Counting On for months and the network has no plans to feature him in the future,” TLC said in a statement via Twitter. “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.”
