TLC Fires 'Counting On' Star Derick Dillard After His Comments About Jazz Jennings

We won't be seeing Derick Dillard on Counting On anymore. Jill Duggar's husband has been fired from TLC after the missionary continued to make rude comments about his fellow TLC star Jazz Jennings online. In the midst of Derick's most recent comments, the network has released a statement on its official Twitter account, announcing that Derick will no longer be a part of the 19 Kids and Counting spin-off.

“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," the statement read. "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 many dullard remarks does this hypocritical family have to make before TLC pulls the whole bunch off the air? I shall never understand the attraction to these people.

Oh, wow, he was fired?  Good. He shouldn’t be on a network and take money from them if he objects so much to their programming. He can be a martyr now. 🙄

They should pull the plug on this show.  Do you think his wife shares his views?  Just dump these folks already.

While I do not watch any of TLC offerings I am surprised that "breeding bunch" still has a show. I never understood the whole attraction anyway. I suppose eventually that whole Lot will have to find a real job. LOL xxxxxxxxxx Stormy

In real life they have a lot to say about other religions, politics, and how people live their lives.  On TV they are happy, smiley, and "live and let live."
