‘Little People, Big World’: Matt Roloff Admits He Deletes Mean Comments on His Instagram

With so many reality TV families out there, it’s tough to know who’s worth watching — but the Roloffs on Little People, Big World appear to be humble and totally authentic. When the show first began years ago, a lot was different, as Matt and Amy Roloff’s marriage was still intact and their four kids were merely children. Now, everything’s changed. The kids are all grown up and moved out, and Matt and Amy are divorced and battling over the beloved Roloff Farms property.

Both Matt and Amy see a lot of support on social media, but recently, Matt told his followers that he’s not afraid to delete comments from his Instagram he thinks are inappropriate. Here’s what he said.

Matt and Amy Roloff didn’t always agree on everything, but this season of Little People, Big World, they’ve consistently been at a war of words. Amy currently lives in the big farm house on the Roloff Farms property, and Matt lives in a smaller home just feet away. They still manage the farm together, too, which is incredibly tough considering their divorce. And this has left many fans choosing whose side they’d rather be on.

While the drama is partly what keeps viewers interested, it also means fans are taking to Matt and Amy’s Instagrams to add their opinions of each of them in the comments. And not only have fans attacked Matt and Amy’s character online, but they’ve also gone after their significant others as well. There are numerous rude comments about Matt’s girlfriend, Caryn, and Amy’s boyfriend, Chris, from strangers who’ve most likely never even met the Roloff family.

Matt announced on Instagram that he deletes mean-spirited comments and blocks people

Many TV stars are able to ignore the hate and quickly move on, but Matt’s proven he’s not scared to stand up for himself and his family. Recently, he posted a message to his fans on his Instagram to remind them that he reads the comments and deletes the mean-spirited ones. “Either way I need to repeat I Don’t allow four letter name calling (swear words) or unnecessary mean comments about Amy, or any of my family or friends,” he wrote. And while he added that he can’t catch every nasty comment, “I have banned and deleted a dozen or more followers in the past few weeks for one reason or another. Once you’re gone … your gone.”

It wasn’t all negative talk on the post, though. Matt mentioned he knows most of his followers are “intelligent kind hearted people that understand we are a real family.” And his most supportive fans took to the comments to remind him how loved the Roloffs really are. “Love your family and your legacy!!!! There are plenty of us here! Forget the negative people,” one fan commented.

This isn’t the first time he’s addressed social media hate

Matt has kept it real on social media before this post, too. In late April, he also posted text to Instagram that said, “Weak people avenge/strong people forgive/intelligent people ignore.” And while he didn’t add quite the heartfelt message to go along with the post like he did with the more recent photo of his family, he did insinuate here that he was also on a spree of deleting and blocking those who offended him and his family.

Fans still took to the comments section of this post to discuss Matt and Amy’s bickering on the show, however. And it seems there’s still a lot of disagreement amongst viewers on who’s in the right when it comes to the fate of the family farm. No matter what, at least even the rude comments are proving many are still heavily invested in the family’s future — and we’re all hoping Matt and Amy can put their differences behind them and move forward on a happy note.
