#derick dillard justified his tweet to an ad posted by “I Am Jazz” star #Jazz Jennings on Twitter. He wrote that he wants to clear his statement that he has nothing against her but against the words and definitions used in the teenager’s promo ad.

#jill duggar’s husband’s tweet says that transgender is not a reality and gender is determined by God. The LGBTQ supporters and the trans community slammed the 28-year old reality star. The comment thread continued especially when he wrote another tweet in response to a user named Shannon Miller who questioned him for throwing a shade to a teenager.

The father of two wrote that he is not against people, but he is fighting against evil forces in the heavenly places as reported by the Daily Mail.

The missionary was referring to a Bible verse, Ephesians 6:12 which says that Godly people fight not against a man with flesh and blood but demonic forces. But the angry netizens continue to fight back by attacking his kids, his brother-in-law Josh Duggar, his church, and even TLC.

One Twitter user wrote that if “19 Kids and Counting” was canceled because of Josh Duggar’s molestation and cheating scandals, he can be removed from “Counting On” too. Others want the show canceled.

While her husband is being grilled on Twitter, Jill Duggar posted a new photo of her family on Instagram as reported by the Inquisitr. But her account was also used by angry users to criticize her husband. TLC was also dragged into the heated arguments. The network issued a statement that it has nothing to do with Derick Dillard’s opinion.

Jazz Jennings feels and acts like a girl since she was small

Jazz Jennings tweeted a response saying she continues to be bullied and Derick’s tweet is one of them. But it will not hinder her from sharing her story through her show. Jennings is a 16-year-old transgender with a gender identity disorder. According to her mother, she was diagnosed with the abnormality when she was two years old. At a very young age, she already knew that she is a girl trapped in a boy’s body.

Her parents named her Jaron but later adopted the name Jazz after she transitioned. She started wearing girls’ dresses at the age of five. Jazz Jennings became Time Magazine’s 25 Most Influential Teens of 2014 alongside Malia and Sasha Obama, Kendall Jenner, and Lorde. At 14, she has been speaking at universities, medical schools, symposia, and conferences.

With the help of her parents, she was able to put up Trans Kids Purple Rainbow Foundation to help children like her. But for Derick Dillard, she will always be a “him” because people who transitioned are not a reality for him.
