TLC is speaking out in support of transgender teen Jazz Jennings after she was verbally attacked by Duggar family member Derick Dillard.
Dillard unleashed a social media rant on the 16-year-old, saying ... "Transgender" is a myth. Gender is not fluid; it's ordained by God." He made the comments while her show, "I Am Jazz," was airing Wednesday night on TLC ... where the Duggars used to be top dog.
A TLC rep tells TMZ ... Dillard's "personal statement" in no way reflects the network's views.
