Jill Duggar’s Husband Derick Got Fired, So Now They’re Begging for Money

By  | 

Welp, if you had any sympathy for Jill Duggar’s husband Derick after he was fired for being a transphobic bully, maybe this’ll cure you of that. In the wake of TLC canning Derick after his tweets about Jazz Jennings, the Dillards have taken to social media. To apologize, you ask? LOL no. They’ve broken their silence to ask fans for money. Otherwise known as: How to Fail at Social Media Damage Control 101.

Jill Duggar’s husband Derick is collecting donations via GoFundMe. He’s asking fans to throw some coin his way, to fund various “mission trips” he’ll take throughout the year. I mean, he is going to have a lot of time on his hands.


Fans are like, what the fuck? First he spews some dumb shit on Twitter, gets his ass fired, and now he’s asking for money? There’s a right way to go about crowdfunding, and there’s a really wrong way. Guess which one Derick did. Go ahead, just guess.

Jill Duggar has been mum on the fate of her role on the show or the idiocy that got her husband fired. But she did break her silence to pass his collection plate on IG and Twitter.

I just … I have so many questions. Jill and Derick have been on TV for a long time. Where’s that TV money, guys? 10k surely is a drop in the bucket compared to what they’ve earned by letting cameras into their homes and lives. And if, for whatever reason, they’re strapped for cash, aren’t Jill’s parents pretty flush? I mean, they’ve been on TV for fucking ever. Plus they’ve got all kinds of other money-making ventures, like cell towers on their property that they rent out to carriers. Surely, SURELY, Jim Bob and Michelle can extend a little family loan to one of their kids, especially for such a righteous cause.

People on Twitter were like, nah.

Plenty of people wanted to know why Jill Duggar’s husband Derick just doesn’t get himself a real job, too. The Duggars seem like pull-yourself-up-by-the-bootstraps kinda people. So start pulling, son.

This isn’t even the first time the Dillards have found themselves in hot water for begging for money. While they were on their “missionary trip” in Central America, they created a GoFundMe to ask fans to donate to their cause. They claimed the donations would help them stay in Central America long-term, and continue their work. But after a month in the country, they hightailed it back to the States for a month-long “hiatus”. The couple ended up refunding donations after fans called bullshit.

Isn’t there something in the bible about learning your lesson the first time around? Poor show, Jill and Derick.
