Derick Dillard took a dig at Jim Bob Duggar’s strict rules over the holiday weekend. As you may know, Jill Dillard’s husband doesn’t necessarily get along with her father. Over the years, Derick has spoken out against his wife’s family many, many times. Recently, things have been ramping up, and Derick always has something to say.

Most recently, Derick spoke out against his father-in-law during his run for a seat in the Arkansas State Senate. Jim Bob lost miserably, but ahead of the election, Derick criticized Jim Bob’s platform and even encouraged voters to use their vote on a different candidate. He also opened up about Jim Bob’s lies.

Now, Derick is showing fans that there’s even more distance between himself and his wife’s famous family.

Derick Dillard takes another dig at Jim Bob Duggar.

In a new Instagram post over Christmas, Derick shared a video while at a Christmas Eve church service. The service looks very contemporary, which isn’t the norm for the Duggars. However, Jill and Derick have shown fans that they aren’t into the traditional lifestyle her parents adhere to.

In the comments section of the post, one fan thanked Derick for sharing it but also sparked a conversation. They said, “I thought your family does not approve of dancing. A whole lot of dancing going on here.”

Derick simply stated, “We’ve always approved of dancing.” He added a smiley face, too.

Duggar fans know that dancing is forbidden by Jim Bob. The family believes that dancing can be “sensual” and can cause temptations. So, to stay pure, the Duggars don’t dance. Of course, this is only a rule under Jim Bob and Michelle’s roof.

Once their kids grow up and get married, they can make their own rules. From what we’ve seen, however, it looks like many of Jim Bob and Michelle’s adult children follow similar rules and adhere to the same values in their own families.

Duggar family fans know that Jill and Derick have distanced themselves from her family. Though this isn’t groundbreaking in most families, Jill now wears pants instead of skirts, has her nose pierced, sends her son to public school, and more. So, you may not be too surprised to learn that they also dance.

So, what do you think of Derick Dillard’s response? Do you think that Jim Bob Duggar is bothered by this? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below. For more news about the Duggar family, come back to TV Shows Ace.

  1. We have always approved of dancing just not of women’s and LGBT rights.

    Derrick is no better than his father in law in many of his views.
    He just knows which way the wind is blowing and how to put on a better face.

    1. Isn’t it time for Derick to get a life based on something besides his relationship with his daddy-in-law? It’s reminding me of when I asked my toddlers what they’d like for supper, and what I got was a list of what they don’t like.

  2. Derrick Dillard needs to mind his own business and stop disrespecting his wife’s Father! What a hypocrite!

  3. I think his agenda has always been to marry a duggar just to do petty because he doesn’t like his in laws rules. This use to be a close knit family and now outsiders have turn this family upside down.

  4. Jim Bob is more concerned with appearances of being holy. U can talk the talk but legalism still doesn’t get you into heaven. Sweeping sin under the rug like with his oldest son has been brought out in the open. All the legalism in the world didn’t stop that. Nor did it stop the choices his son made. Be more concerned with your relationship with God than with what people think Jim Bob. Those masks aren’t going to get u into heaven

  5. Jim Bob’s rules do not apply to his children’s families. Derick is the head of his household, thus he & Jill have the say so anout what they do. Personally, some of their rules really go to far. He & Michele certainly were brought up differently. So, the limits he puts forth are too strict. He just makes the children want to experience more once out of his control. If his tules were so great, why is his oldest son in so much trouble??
