Jill Duggar Pays Birthday Tribute to Derick Dillard … Who Promptly Gets Roasted By Fans
It’s been a rough few months for Derick Dillard.
The troubles started when Derick got fired by TLC after launching an unprovoked social media attack on fellow network star Jazz Jennings.
In the months since, things have only gotten worse for poor Der.
It’s almost like costing his family their only source of income in order to settle some petty social media score wasn’t the smartest move.
This week has been a particularly hard one on Derick, as he was torn to shreds for complaining that TLC refused to pay his son’s medical bills.
(As many followers pointed out, employers give you money in exchange for labor, so that you can pay for unexpected expenses yourself.)
But it’s Friday, and it’s Derick’s 29th birthday, so right about now he probably just wants to kick back with a spicy Virgin Mary and forget about the online world for a bit.
Unfortunately for Big D, the internet doesn’t take days off.
Earlier today, Derick’s wife, Jill Duggar, posted the above photo along with a heartfelt birthday message:
“Happy birthday My Love! You’re the best hubby and father! I’m so in love with you! I hope this last birthday in your 20s is a good one,” Jill captioned the pic.
Unfortunately, the last year of Der’s twenties isn’t off to the greatest start, as Jill’s followers took the opportunity to roast the controversial house husband within an inch of his life:
“Derick, happy birthday. As you blow out your candles, you should wish forgiveness from God for the things that come out of you mouth,” wrote one follower.
“May Derick learn the true meaning of being a Christian for his 29th year,” another commented.
“Wow! 29 and still doesn’t have a real paying job! How very sad,” another roast-master remarked.
“I don’t think this year will be a good birthday. After all, he posted on Twitter yesterday he seems really emotional and upset. I have a feeling Derick will be on Twitter again all day complaining how life isn’t fair.”
Needless to say, there’s not a lot of birthday love out there for Der today.
Maybe he should flip the script and give Twitter a present by deleting his account.
