Interior designer Nate Berkus' and his partner Jeremiah Brent's new show on TLC called Nate & Jeremiah By Design has drawn quite a large fan base over the course of its first three episodes. There is one person, however, who isn't pleased with it at all.
It was reported earlier this week that former TLC star Derick Duggar (of the Duggar family), went on a major homophobic rant against their family and the new show. After TLC shared a tweet of Nate and Jeremiah with their daughter Poppy Brent-Berkus, in an effort to promote the new program, Derick followed up by saying this:
The response to Derick's homophobia was widely met with negativity and criticism against him (he's also criticized star of I Am Jazz, Jazz Jennings, who happens to be transgender).
Nate responded yesterday and took the high road in the process. His focus was to break down the barriers that people like Derick refuse to take down in hopes that it will normalize more families like his (they also have a newborn son named Oskar).
His response was a complete 180 from Derick's, with supporters showing him nothing but love for him and his family being authentically themselves.
A new episode of Nate & Jeremiah By Design airs tonight at 9:00 PM EST on TLC.
