“Jazz Jennings Says She's 'Doing Great' After Undergoing Gender Confirmation Surgery,” read a tweet from PEOPLE.
Inspired by his own homophobic, transphobic ways, Dillard, 29, retweeted the story, writing: “This kind of thinking should not be encouraged by media. A system that allows this kind of child abuse is clearly broken.”
Jennings’ fans immediately replied to his tweet citing excerpts from the Bible which state people should “not judge” others. As RadarOnline.com readers know, Dillard has previously claimed his targeted hatred of Jennings—and all transgender individuals—comes from his deep Christian faith.
“Don’t compromise your values for your voice,” he tweeted in December after he was fired from the Duggars’ show for his transphobic views and comments.
In his initial tweet towards Jennings, 17, Dillard said the star’s show was a fantasy based on a lie, since “transgender is a myth.”
After receiving much backlash for his insensitive comment, Dillard slammed Jennings once again, tweeting to his followers: “Hi, please realize that I never said anything against him.”
Most recently, Derick Dillard gained criticism for supporting a homophobic baker who refused to make a cake for a gay wedding!
Unfortunately, the disgraced former star’s wild tweets just keep on coming.
