Last week, derick dillard caused a fired-up discussion on Twitter when he blasted TLC's "Nate & Jeremiah by Design." The reality show follows the eponymous same-sex couple as they flip houses and raise their two children. Duggar fans know that Derick Dillard has some pretty firm views against homosexuality [VIDEO] and he didn't mince his words when he took a shot at Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent.

"What a travesty of family," Derick wrote in his tweet.

Derick's hateful comments did not escape the women of "The View," who had a lot of things to say about the Duggar son-in-law. On Thursday's episode, Whoopi Goldberg and the rest of the talk show's panel talked about the issue and defended Nate and Jeremiah against Derick's hate tweets.

'Duggar outlaw'

Interestingly, Whoopi Goldberg did not even know who Derick Dillard was until she was told that he's a Duggar in-law from "19 Kids and Counting."

"You are outlaw now," the comedian-host sarcastically commented. Goldberg then proceeded to take a dig at Derick's comments, calling them ignorant and "nasty." She pointed out that families come in all shapes and sizes, just as the Duggar Family is known for not endorsing birth control.

"You should just stop, man. Stop. You don't have to agree with anybody's lifestyle, but you don't live in their house. Just like we don't live in a house where there are 900 kids."

Goldberg's co-hosts agreed. Sara Haines got a bit emotional and called Derick's language "sad." Joy Behar commented that maybe Derick Dillard is just "jealous" that Nate and Jeremiah are getting more exposure on their show than he ever did.

Derick had starred on multiple seasons of "19 Kids and Counting" and "Counting On" until he cut ties with TLC last year after slamming "I Am Jazz," another LGBT-oriented show.

Jill Duggar supports husband

It is unclear if the particular "The View" episode has already reached Derick Dillard. So far, the former "Counting On" star has not responded to the hosts' comments about him.

Amid the backlash that Derick is getting from the LGBT community, Jill Duggar seems to be sticking up for her disgraced husband. On Wednesday, Jill took to Instagram to post a prayer list she got from her mom Michelle Duggar's recent speaking engagement.

The list includes 16 things a mother should pray for her children [VIDEO]. Interestingly, the last prayer point seems to have been taken straight from Derick's words:

"That our boys would be glad to be boys and that our girls would be glad to be girls."

Albeit indirectly, this is the first time that Jill Duggar has spoken about the issue surrounding her husband's homophobic tweets.
