‘Little People, Big World’ Fans Will Never Forget When Jacob Roloff Sent Out This Aggressive Tweet

Fans of Little People, Big World have been keeping up with the Roloffs since 2006 — and a lot has gone on for the family over the past decade or so. While Matt and Amy Roloff, the couple with dwarfism who first started the show, were once known as the happy little couple, they’ve since divorced. And their four kids who started as series regulars are also all married off and pursuing their own ventures for the future.

There’s always one black sheep in the family, too — and for the Roloffs, that’s Jacob, the youngest member. He’s been outspoken regarding his reasons as to why he chose to quit the show, and he’s also taken to social media in the past with some scathing accusations. Here’s info regarding his most shocking Twitter moment.

Back in 2015, Jacob posted an alarming tweet about being cheated out of his earnings

Jacob started the show when he was just 9 years old, so he didn’t get much of a say in whether or not he wanted to be on reality TV. Now that the star is 22 and off the air, he’s reflected on his past with Little People, Big World — and it’s clear he’s not a fan. And things really seemed to escalate back in 2015.

Radar Online reminds us Jacob was 18 at the time, and he was seemingly already starting to pull back from being a part of the show. He then sent out a tweet that August that said, “Man I wish I didn’t feel like I was getting f***** out of the money from the show that was my childhood right now.” Fans were quick to question what was going on, and Jacob then went on to explain via Twitter that, for whatever reason, he was not getting paid his “accumulated salary since Season 1.” TMZ reports sources close to the production team said Jacob’s earnings were all in a bank account since he was a minor when he started — and we haven’t heard much regarding the situation since.

His parents’ divorce may have had something to do with the drama

We never found out what was going on with Jacob’s money, but the timing of the dramatic tweet did some odd. Radar Online reminds us Matt and Amy Roloff filed for divorce a few months prior. And sources close to Jacob said the split was incredibly hard on the young man.

According to Radar Online, Jacob seemed to put a lot of the blame of the divorce on his dad, Matt, which also created a ton of tension in their relationship. The insider said, “I think when his parents divorced he put a lot of the blame on his dad. His mom was hurting for a long time, and he believes Matt was the sole cause of that — like his dad is the one that blew up the whole family.” The insider also added that the two seemed to be working things out — and today, it’s likely they have a stronger relationship than they did back in 2015. But even so, for an 18-year-old reality star dealing with his parent’s divorce, using Twitter as an outlet sounds like a likely coping mechanism.

He’s stated he’ll never be a part of LPBW production again

I get comments on here all the time about how people 'miss me on the show' or telling me I should 'do a few more episodes' with the family; I'm posting this to say that that will never happen. For the sake of 'the episode' and ratings I've seen a lot of STORYLINES drawn up (loosely) about our lives, and when I was standing here, behind the scenes and watching it from an outside perspective I just couldn't stop laughing. Laughing at how hard the producers have to try to get us to follow the talking points, and at how ridiculous the talking points are. . To misquote Chomsky, "the primary objective of any system is to preserve the integrity of that system", meaning, the primary objective I have felt and observed over the years of the 'crew' is to preserve their job and preserve the ratings, which is up to you to be right or wrong. That's not to say they are all soulless corporate shills or something, there are and have been good people involved but that doesn't negate the fact that they do have their own personal agenda. For me, noticing how the agenda of the crew doesn't work well with the health & happiness of our family is what made me decide quite a while ago that I would not be a part of it as soon as I was able. . All in all I appreciate people wanting me to 'be with the family' for a few more episodes, but the family that is filmed is not my family. They are the Roloff Characters and I have scarcely anything in common with them, nor do I want to be a character myself. As soon as the cameras drop however, its almost like they never played the part. 20 minutes after this picture was taken we all, plus friends, had a campfire late into the night. So, I am with my family and I love them I'm just here to say you'll never see that from me on TV again. (This picture is from a few months ago)

Jacob may not be a part of Little People, Big World anymore, but he’s still easily accessible through social media, and he’s even writing his own books. And today, he seems like he’s better off than ever before. Not only is he a successful writer in a happy relationship, but judging from Matt and Amy Roloff’s Instagram, he still spends plenty of time with his family, too.

Fans of Jacob shouldn’t ever expect to see him back on the show, unfortunately. While the star was always well-liked by the public, he’s stated on Instagram that he never wants to be a part of the series again. Back in 2016 he wrote, “I get comments on here all the time about how people ‘miss me on the show’ or telling me I should ‘do a few more episodes’ with the family; I’m posting this to say that that will never happen.” We do still see him on his family members’ Instagram accounts, however, so fans are hopeful they can still keep up with him that way.
