Derick Dillard has been causing a lot of controversy for himself over the past several months, thanks to his use of social media. The Reality TV star, who can be seen with his wife, Jill Duggar Dillard, on their series "Counting On," has been tweeting some things lately that have caused lots of issues within the Duggar fandom. While some appreciate his highly conservative views and his love of Donald J.

Trump, others feel that since he is in a position of influence, he should not be allowed to express some of the things he does. Some have even called for the TLC star to be fired, as they say that anyone else working for the company would be after expressing such views.

Derick expresses his views on racism in America

Derick recently tweeted that America is the least racist country in the world, which understandably ruffled a few feathers.

Right before that Tweet, he retweeted vice president Mike Pence's indictment of players who "take a knee" during the national anthem. According to Derick, this is totally unnecessary, because the United States does not have a problem with race. He also stated that this "anomaly" should be celebrated instead of further dividing the country by calling out racism and other issues.

"The US is one of the least racist countries in the world.

In unity, let’s strive to protect & improve this anomaly in history," he wrote, much to the ire of his many fans.

Derick also added a quote from Proverbs, stating that hatred creates strife, whereas love covers up all of it, likely implying that "taking a knee" is synonymous with hatred and forcing everyone to stand for the National Anthem is love.

Other times he got himself in trouble on social media

Derick is no stranger to problems when it comes to using social media.

The father of two previously stated that TLC, the network that he and his wife appear on, should not also have a television show about a trans individual. He specifically called out Jazz Jennings, who appears on the TLC show "I Am Jazz," misgendering her and stating that God gives people their gender for a reason. Jazz responded to this, stating that it was cyberbullying, and many called for him to be fired from "Counting On." He wasn't fired, but instead went on to support a highly conservative Alabama politician who calls for homosexuality to be illegal.

There are rumors, however, that he was fired from his job at SOS Ministries due to his views.
