Jill Duggar's husband Derick Dillard has reignited war against the TLC network – and this time, he slammed his own family in the process.

This week a fan on Twitter asked the controversial Duggar in-law if he watches TLC's I am Jazz or My Strange Addiction, among its other shows. Jill's husband then used the opportunity to respond by slamming the entire network – the same one that made his family famous.

"I don't watch any of them," Dillard said about TLC's shows. "I'm now aware of them, but I encourage others not to watch the filth on TLC…and other networks, but you brought up TLC shows."

As Radar readers know, Derick was a cast member, along with Jill, on the family's show Counting On. But in 2017, Derick's transphobic comments about fellow TLC star Jazz Jennings resulted in the couple getting fired from the show.

Jill's siblings, Jessa and Ben Seewald, Jinger and Jeremy Vuolo, Jana Duggar, John David, Joy Anna and Austin Forsyth, Joseph and Kendra Duggar, and more still appear on the show.

For months Derick has insisted that he left the show on his own accord, but the TLC network put out a statement claiming it had "no plans to feature him in the future."

Also, Jill's hubby notoriously slammed The View hosts earlier this year.

Fans are now questioning whether Derick – who just enrolled in law school – will be sued for defaming the network that once hired him.
