‘Little People, Big World’: Jeremy and Audrey Roloff Know They Get Social Media Hate — And They Don’t Care
Another season of Little People, Big World just ended, and fans can’t believe everything that went down between Matt and Amy Roloff and Roloff Farms. Not only did we get invested in the ex-couple’s drama, but we also learned a lot about Zach and Tori’s life with their son, Jackson. And we can’t wait to hear more about Tori’s pregnancy as that progresses, too.
There are a few Roloffs missing from the show, however. Zach’s twin, Jeremy, and his wife Audrey, decided to quit LPBW many seasons ago and have since been the subject of public scrutiny for a variety of reasons. Despite the critique, they’re able to brush it off. Here’s what they said.
Jeremy and Audrey Roloff chose to leave Little People, Big World behind
Jeremy Roloff isn’t the only member of the family to decide to leave the show behind. Jacob, the youngest and most controversial member of the family, as well as Molly, also parted ways with TLC. And while Jacob and Molly aren’t in the public eye nearly as much as they once were, Jeremy and Audrey still have a strong social media following and public podcast to share their love story and make sure they aren’t forgotten.
As Jeremy shared on Instagram back in July 2018, “After 14 years, over 300 episodes, and 17 seasons, the time has come. A year ago I made the decision that this season would be our last. … This is a decision concerning Audrey and me specifically – the show must go on! That being said, we’re not disappearing. We have a lot of exciting stuff in the works and are eager to continue the work that the Lord has called us to!”
As for what the other Roloffs think of Audrey and Jeremy moving on from LPBW, they’re totally supportive. “We’ve all been doing it — it’s been a family business for 14 years, like, that’s a long time to be working altogethero, day in and day out, making TV,” Jeremy told Access Live.
They’re constantly getting slammed for their marriage and parenting advice
Audrey and Jeremy have been married since 2014, and they now have a book, a blog, and a podcast all devoted to sharing with their followers how they fell in love and attained a seemingly perfect marriage. Unfortunately, many don’t find them relatable and have said as much on social media. One of Audrey’s followers commented on her Instagram post, “While I appreciate your intuitive thoughts it doesn’t seem like you have a true grasp or awareness yet of an aging but always love filled 21 year marriage and with that I find it difficult to relate on a serious level [sic].”
The couple has also been slammed for their parenting advice as well. Most recently, they shared their “blanket time” method of training their daughter to behave, and Reddit users criticized. “It’s extremely controlling and bizarre. If you can’t keep an eye on your kid without them being confined to a small space on a blanket then you need some serious help,” one user wrote.
They don’t let the hate get to them
Jeremy and Audrey are well-aware that many don’t take their love or parenting advice seriously — and that’s totally alright with them. Jeremy told Us Weekly that it’s important to have “grace” for internet trolls because “if people are being hateful online and whatnot, that’s not coming from a healthy spot.” He then added, “It’s just the world that we live in and it is what it is, but we try not to let it get to us because of that, you know? We have that perspective.”
Audrey also shared that people shouldn’t be too quick to believe everything they hear, either, as the information is “probably not true” unless it came directly out of their mouths. Jeremy further elaborated with, “I think to do something in this world you have to have some thick skin and believe in your mission and your purpose more than the voices that are speaking into your head.”
