Derick Dillard Just Went After Transgender People Again
Now that he's been fired from TLC, Derick Dillard has a lot of free time on his hands.
And the controversial reality star is using said free time to do what got him fired in the first place:
Heartlessly attack transgender individuals at every opportunity.
Yes, just as Dillard went after Jazz Jennings in a series of bigoted Tweets, the former Counting On cast member has once again set his sights on the LGBT community.

HARD. As you can see here, a couple even referenced Josh Duggar in citing what actual “child abuse” means.
