Derick Dillard speaks out against Jazz Jennings

Derick Dillard speaks out against Jazz Jennings

"Transgender" is a myth. Gender is not fluid; it's ordained by God", the 28-year old tweeted.

There's some internal drama going on at reality TV network TLC, as I Am Jazz star and trans rights activist Jazz Jennings was the subject of a transphobic tweet by network-mate Derick Dillard.

When the initial tweet sparked outrage, Dillard tweeted: "I want to be clear".

People demanded that TLC take a stand against what Dillard said and defend their young star, with one person saying it's "horrific" the way Dillard went after a minor on social media. Jennings has also responded to the situation and tweeted, "Every day I experience cyber-bullying, but I keep sharing my story". I have nothing against him.

Having just welcomed a new baby boy in early July, you might think Derick Dillard would have much more to focus on than hate-tweeting.

Dillard, who also stars on TLC, alongside wife Jill Duggar Dillard in the show "Counting On", took to Twitter on Wednesday to bash Jennings' show. "I only have issue with the words and definitions being propagated here", Derick replied.

"Thank you for your strength and leadership!" she tweeted to Jennings. YOU'RE GONNA ALLOW A GROWN MAN CHILD TO BULLY A CHILD ON YOUR WATCH???,' wrote one woman. "It's probably best not to bite the hand that feeds you". They also said he was a hypocrite, given that he's part of the Duggar family which had its TLC show "19 Kids and Counting" cancelled.

"People are not my enemy; I fight against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places", he tweeted Friday.

TLC released a statement about the matter, telling Us Weekly that "Derick Dillard's personal statement does not represent the views of TLC".
