Derick Dillard Firing Prompts Internet Applause, Outrage
Derick Dillard will never appear on TLC again.
The network made this announcement after Dillard attacked 17-year old transgender reality star Jazz Jennings, who anchors her own series on the same cable network.
After Dillard said he pitied Jazz and that it's "unfortunate" Jennings was given a show, TLC released a statement that reads:
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.
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.
How are viewers and fans reacting to this development? Good question. Let's find out!
