Counting On star Derick Dillard appears to have taken issue with another reality show on TLC.
On Wednesday, Dillard -- a devout Christian -- tweeted out a disapproving message about Jazz Jennings' show, I Am Jazz, which follows the 16-year-old reality star's life as a transgender woman.
"What an oxymoron... a 'reality' show which follows a non-reality," he tweeted in response to TLC promoting the show on social media. "'Transgender' is a myth. Gender is not fluid; it's ordained by God."
The tweet caused some backlash for Dillard.
"The oxymoron is your Christian faith teaches God will judge, not you," one Twitter user responded. "Yet here you are judging a brave soul for being different than you."
"Please explain to me how anything that SHE is doing affects you at all? Some Christian you are," another commenter declared.
Dillard replied to one Twitter user who wrote: "Is it necessary for a grown man to throw shade at a teenage girl?"
The father of two responded: "I want to be clear. I have nothing against him. I only have issue with the words and definitions being propagated here."
Twitter commenters then slammed Dillard for using the wrong pronoun when referring to Jennings. "You mean her. Use the right pronoun if you have no issue," one commenter pointed out.
"Her. if you want to show respect, say the correct pronoun as she was only a 'he' for a few years of life," another Twitter user lamented.
Jennings has yet to respond directly to Dillard's tweet, but she did post a message about the criticism and bullying she's faced in her life. "Every day I experience cyber-bullying," she wrote. "But I keep sharing my story. Today was no different."
Every day I experience cyber-bullying, but I keep sharing my story. Today was no different.
Stars including Demi Lovato, Ellen DeGeneres and Caitlyn Jenner responded to the news, expressing their disapproval of the president's plan. "We should be grateful to the people who wish to serve, not turn our backs on them," DeGeneres tweeted. "Banning transgender people is hurtful, baseless and wrong."
