Derick Dillard is not done hating on the LGBTQ community.

This Monday night, the former Counting On star tweeted a comment praising the Colorado baker who refused to bake a cake for a gay wedding.

"Today's 7-2 Supreme Court decision is a huge victory for religious freedom. Government cannot and should not discriminate against religious faith; it is a constitutional right," wrote Dillard, 29, after the court ruled in favor of the homophobic baker.

As RadarOnline.com readers know, Dillard was fired from the hit Duggar family show when he repeatedly bashed the gay and trans communities on social media.

Jill Duggar's distant cousin, John Andrew Studdard, even told Radar that he's "sick of hearing Dillard's homophobic cries for publicity."

"Derick needs to keep his mouth shut," he added. "We don't have to agree with someone's life, but don't speak out publically when you know you're already disliked by half of America. As a public figure, he should stop being so harsh."

The drama with Dillard's homophobic and transphobic ways began when the former accountant bashed trans star Jazz Jennings on Twitter, saying that "'Transgender' is a myth" because "Gender is not fluid. It's ordained by God."

He also slammed gay TLC star Nate Berkus, calling him and his husband a "travesty of a family."

Despite the hate he received from social media users everywhere, Dillard has continued to defend his views, saying that his religious beliefs come first and should be respected by liberals.
