Some people never learn — and apparently Derick Dillard is one of those people! The disgraced Counting On alum once again came for fellow transgender TLC stars, this time targeting the cast of the new series Lost in Transition. Watch the video above to find out what Jill Duggar's husband said!
Derick was fired from the Duggar reality series earlier this year after sharing hateful comments about transgender teen Jazz Jennings, who stars in her own TLC series, I Am Jazz. The father-of-two insists he was not let go, but that he left on his own accord. "They won't tell you that I was ever fired because I wasn't," he said at the time. "We wanted to leave and they didn't want us to. That's the truth."
From there, he went on to attack Nate & Jeremiah by Design stars Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent's family, deeming them a "travesty" and calling their gay family lifestyle "degrading." His controversial views definitely struck a nerve with viewers — and even Jill hinted she doesn't always agree with Derick's opinions.
His wife isn't the only family member taking issue with his words, either. Duggar family cousin John Andrew Studdard recently went on record to express his disgust. "Derick needs to keep his mouth shut," he told Radar. "We don't have to agree with someone's life, but don't speak out publicly when you know you're already disliked by half of America. As a public figure, he should stop being so harsh."
John then added, "We aren't close, but I'm sick of hearing his homophobic cries for publicity." We can't imagine what John, Jill, and others will have to say about Derick's latest blunder.
