It’s hard to find someone who is a fan of former Counting On star Derick Dillard, and some loyal viewers of the popular TLC reality show believe that even Dillard’s brother-in-law Jeremy Vuolo doesn’t want anything to do with him. Did Vuolo just throw some passive-aggressive shade at Dillard on social media?
Before this week’s season eight premiere of Counting On, Vuolo took to Twitter to promote the show, and several fans believe that one particular line in the tweet was pretty telling.
“Jinger and I are so grateful to TLC for giving us the opportunity to share our lives with all of you! Tune in this Monday night — July 30th, 9/8C — for the new season of #CountingOn.”

One Reddit user wrote that the tweet was “some Dillard shade,” and others agreed. One fan wrote that Vuolo probably thinks Dillard is “absolutely ridiculous,” and another said that Vuolo was “good at throwing shade in a fundie acceptable way. I don’t like him, but damn if it ain’t entertaining.”
In case you didn’t catch it, it was the line Vuolo wrote thanking TLC for giving him and his wife the opportunity to share their lives on television that fans believe was partially aimed at Dillard. Last year, TLC fired the 29-year-old after he went on a transphobic Twitter rant against I Am Jazz star, Jazz Jennings.
In his controversial tweets, Dillard wrote that Jennings’ reality show was an oxymoron because it followed a non-reality. He added that transgender is a myth, and gender is not fluid, but instead ordained by God.
But, if this was some shade towards Dillard, it doesn’t make Vuolo the first member of the family to show their distaste for the father of two. In June, Jessa Duggar’s husband Ben Seewald tweeted that if you say you “love thy neighbor,” but you are really just loving people who think, live, and look like you, then it is not your neighbor you are loving. Instead, it is yourself.
After that tweet, fans started commenting that it appeared Seewald was “snarking the Dillards,” and they were all for the roasting. Seewald no longer follows Dillard on social media, so there does seem to be some merit to the idea that he is not the biggest fan of Jill Duggar’s husband.
And, some even thought Jinger Duggar got in on the shade-throwing action when she shared a pic of herself on Instagram holding the book She’s Got the Wrong Guy: Why Smart Women Settle, just a few days after Dillard tweeted that Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent’s family was a “travesty.”
But, it doesn’t stop there. The day after Dillard went after the transgender stars of Lost in Transition and participated in some snarky exchanges with followers, Vuolo tweeted a video of two Lynx screaming at each other along with the caption, “How your intense Twitter argument sounds to everyone else.”
