Nothing seems to be able to stop Derick Dillard from bashing the transgender community. Jill Duggar‘s husband, for what seems like the hundredth time, slammed the transgender community in yet another social media rant.

Derick, 28, shared a video on his Facebook page of transgender singer Laura Jane Grace teaching children about gender identity. Clearly, the message of the clip did not sit well with the now-fired reality star, as he captioned his reposted video, “A friend shared this and called it out for what it is, child abuse.”

He added: “How unfortunate what children are subjected to in the name of progressive understanding.”

Fans were quick to slam Derick for his controversial comments, as one wrote, “Child abuse would be not accepting your child for who they are. This is far from child abuse.”

“That is it for me. I will be unfollowing your page and your family now,” commented another. “I have a hard time with the fact that you choose to judge other families and do it in the name of God.”

As OK! readers know, Derick was fired from his family’s reality show, Counting On, last month after he went on multiple Twitter attacks against transgender star Jazz Jennings. TLC cut ties with the father-of-two after he tweeted that he pitied the 17-year-old I Am Jazz star and accused people of taking “advantage” of her “to promote their agenda.” He additionally refused to call her a female as he referred to Jazz as “him” throughout his attack.
