Derick Dillard is the husband of Jill Duggar (of Duggar Family fame) and appears on the TLC show "Counting On."

He is *also* obsessed with fellow TLC star Jazz Jennings — a 16-year-old trans girl whose show "I Am Jazz" provides a touchstone for a generation of LGBTQ youth struggling with their identities.

In August, Dillard posted a transphobic tweet directed at Jennings' "non-reality" show.

"What an oxymoron," Dillard wrote, sharing an "I AM Jazz" promotional tweet. "A 'reality' show which follows a non-reality. 'Transgender' is a myth. Gender is not fluid; it's ordained by God."

TLC immediately issued a statement to TMZ, insisting that the network was standing by Jennings; however, Dillard didn't face any immediate repercussions for his transphobic hate speech.

Still clearly bothered by Jennings happily living her life, Dillard went on yet another transphobic Twitter rant last week.

"I pity Jazz, 4 those who take advantage of him in order 2 promote their agenda, including the parents who allow these kinds of decisions 2 be made by a child," Dillard wrote, purposefully referring to Jennings with incorrect pronouns. "Just unfortunate what's on tv these days."

Dillard continued with his claims, insisting he was just voicing his "concerns" as a Christian.

He also blasted Jennings' parents for letting her live her truth.

He reaffirmed his stance on Instagram earlier this week.

Dillard shared a photo of "Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson with a quote by evangelical Christian pastor Rick Warren that reads: “Our culture has accepted two huge lies. The first is that if you disagree with someone’s lifestyle, you must fear or hate them. The second is that to love someone means you agree with everything they believe or do.”

Jennings remained unfazed by Dillard's ignorance.

Although she never mentions Dillard by name, Jennings posted a tweet two days after Dillard's Twitter rant and reminded her followers to disregard negative opinions.

"In the face of constant ignorance and hatred I prefer to disregard negative opinions and continue moving forward with love," she wrote. 

TLC, however, had enough of Dillard's bullying.

In a Twitter statement, the network finally announced that it had no plans to feature or work with Dillard in the future.

"We want to reiterate that Derick's persona statements do not reflect the views of the network," TLC insisted. "TLC is proud to share the story of Jazz Jennings and her family and will continue to do so."

Bye-bye, Dillard.
