Matt Roloff has gone all Donald Trump on his Facebook followers.
No, the Little People, Big World star has not referred to African nations in a very derogatory manner.
But he has used his social media platform to call out “fake news” outlets and reports.
Having apparently surfed the Internet often of late, the TLC personality is none too happy about what he’s seen.
Roloff has stumbled upon various stories that paint his family as a bunch of loved ones at odds, which is a stark contrast from the way they are presented on television each week.
(When Little People, Big World is in season, that is; HINT, HINT, TLC executives: Bring it back soon please!)
“Just got caught up on my roloff family fake news… lol. Fake news is alive and well.. how sad,” wrote Matt, adding by way of defense and reassurance:
“The roloff family just keeps hanging closer and closer together despite these broken misleading headlines … matt, amy, Jer , zach Audrey, Tori, molly, Joel, Jacob, Izzy, Chris and caryn.
“All working together to surprise you all at how an American family can function together despite a few minor differences. Wait for it…… a few short months.”
We actually do have a pretty firm idea about what Roloff is referring to here.
Over the past several weeks, there’s been chatter, for example, that he and Amy are at odds.
The couple filed for divorce about two years ago and have each found love in the arms of someone new (Caryn Chandler for Matt, Chris Marek for Amy).
It has certainly seemed from the outside like an amicable split.
However, tension reportedly emanated between the ex-lovers late last year as a result of Roloff’s romance with Chandler and the way Caryn often treats Amy.
This was never confirmed any insider who used his or her name in public – and neither Matt nor Amy said a negative word about the other.
But you know how rumors spread online, right?
Elsewhere, some fans have started to wonder why no photos exist that feature both Audrey and Jacob.
Even we must admit, for a tight-knit group of relative, this is a bit off.
Could these in-laws truly not get along well due to their opposite religious beliefs?
That basically sums up the chatter going on around this alleged feud.
Thankfully for Matt, however, most of his followers aren’t buying any of these claims.
Just take a look at the comments in reply to his “fake news” post:
We’re not certain where we stand, to be honest.
It does seem fishy that Audrey and Jacob are never in the same place, but so what, right?
Who says every member of every family has to be best friends?
Also, Caryn Chandler did serve as the Roloff family farm manager prior to dating Matt. She knew Amy pretty well.
So of course things would be awkward between her and Matt’s ex-wife. Wouldn’t it almost be strange if they were not?
None of this means the Roloffs don’t love each other and aren’t always there for each other.
It mostly just means they’re… gasp! … normal.
Once again, however, we beseech TLC to air new episodes of Little People, Big World.
We miss the show.
And only then can we see these stars in action and know for sure just what is going on.
