Dillard, who is married to Jill Duggar, became incensed by a tweet from TLC advertising their show I Am Jazz, which follows the life of 16-year-old Jazz Jennings as she transitions from male to female.

Remarking that "'transgender' is a myth," Dillard's tweet went on to state that "gender is not fluid; it's ordained by God."

Dillard, a 28-year-old father of two, is part of a family that is no stranger to controversy.

Dillard claimed to have "nothing against him," of course refusing to use Jazz's preferred pronoun:

Others chose to focus their rage on TLC, which initially said nothing, but eventually issued a statement saying, "Derick Dillard's personal statement does not represent the views of TLC."
