‘Counting On’ Fans Blast Derick Dillard’s New Look — He ‘Looks Like the Dude You Warned Your Kids About’
Counting On fans are having a field day with Derick Dillard’s new look. The former Counting On star, who has made waves with his ongoing feud with Jim Bob Duggar, is now rocking a mustache that fans think is straight out of the 1970s. Here’s a quick look at how fans reacted to Derick’s new look, plus how Derick and Jill Duggar are dealing with his epic feud.
Inside Derick’s feud with Jim Bob
Derick has been making headlines as his feud with Jim Bob heats up. A few months ago, Derick took to social media and made several shocking claims about his father-in-law, including the idea that he is stealing money from his own children.
Derick says that he and Jill did not make any money for appearing on Counting On and were under the impression that everyone was volunteering their time on the show. He also stated that Jim Bob handles all of the contract negotiations with TLC and that he basically takes all the money for himself.
As if that isn’t bad enough, Derick told fans that he is currently working on a tell-all memoir that will expose all of Jim Bob’s dirty secrets. He as not revealed any specifics about the tell-all, but sources believe that it might explore how Jim Bob tried to cover up Josh Duggar’s molestation scandal.
Derick left Counting On back in 2017. At the time, he had made some controversial remarks about the LGBTQ community on social media. Fans believe the network fired Derick over the comments, but he says he voluntarily quit because of everything that was going on with Jim Bob.
Jill left the show shortly after her husband’s departure, though she did enjoy a brief cameo in the most recent season.
Former ‘Counting On’ star finds herself in the middle
With Derick working on a tell-all, an inside source told The Hollywood Gossip that Jim Bob has gathered a legal team to put a stop to the book. The source says that Jim Bob is preparing for a major legal battle with Derick and is willing to do whatever he can to stop him.
While Derick and Jim Bob are squaring off in court, Jill has found herself in the middle of the feud. Jill is reportedly supporting Derick, which has put her at odds with her parents.
Insiders believe this is one reason why Jill did not post a Mother’s Day tribute to Michelle Duggar on social media this year. The former Counting On star has consistently posted in year’s past, including a sweet not in 2019 that called Michelle a “selfless, joyful, patient mother.”
“She is the most loving person you’ll ever meet! She always takes time to invest in the life of her kids and is constantly looking for ways to bless others! I’m so grateful to have the most amazing mom in the world as my mom and a great role model for me and many others!” she added.
Although Jill did not share a note about her mom on Mother’s Day, her most recent post about her husband sparked a pretty hilarious reaction from Counting On fans.

Taking to social media, Jill recently shared a photo of Derick outside of their home. The pic, which Jill posted to thank Counting On fans for their birthday wishes, revealed that Derick has grown out a mustache of all things.
“Thank y’all for all the birthday wishes! I had a lovely day yesterday and several people helped make it extra special even amidst the pandemic hardships, especially my hubby @derickdillard,” she captioned the image.
Counting On fans blasted Derick’s new look in the funniest way possible. While some thought he needs to “head back to the 70s,” others noted that Derick “looks like the dude you warned your kids about offering puppies from a tinted-out van.”
“Derrick looks like a Baptist pastor from the 80s. That is so funny,” another fan noted.
Derick has not responded to the comments about his mustache, but it will be interesting to see if he keeps it in the coming weeks.
The rest of Jill Duggar’s famous siblings are set to return with a new season of Counting On sometime in 2020.
