“Jill and Jessa: Counting On” reality show star Derick Dillard has been blacklisted by The Learning Channel (TLC) because of his views on transgenderism.
TLC explained the network has cut off Dillard because of his critical analysis of Jared “Jazz” Jennings’ sex “change.” Dillard is married to Jill Duggar, whose family starred in the “19 Kids and Counting” reality show.
“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,” the network said in a statement. “We want to reiterate that Derick’s personal statements do not reflect the views of the network.”
In early August, Dillard commented on a promo tweet for the TLC show “I Am Jazz” by pointing out that show’s famous transgender star is actually male.
The next day, Jennings tweeted that Dillard is a “bully.” “Every day I experience cyber-bullying, but I keep sharing my story. Today was no different,” the transgender TV star wrote. (Read more from “Jill Duggar’s Husband Tweeted Transgenderism Is ‘a Myth’, Gets Booted From TLC Show” HERE)
