While many fans used to think of the Roloffs from Little People, Big World as one big, happy family, such is not the case. Jacob Roloff, the black sheep and youngest of Matt and Amy Roloff’s kids, left filming years ago after condemning the show via Instagram. Since then, he’s also had rumored falling outs with his brother, Jeremy Roloff, and Jeremy’s wife, Audrey Roloff.
It looks like Jacob might be taking a light jab at Jeremy with his Instagram Story, too. Here’s what fans noticed regarding Jacob’s Story about his van.
Jacob Roloff had a rumored falling out with Jeremy and Audrey Roloff
There’s a lot to unpack when it comes to the Roloffs. Jacob is certainly the most controversial, as he’s publicly condemned his family members in the past. And while he and Jeremy have never had a serious public feud, there are plenty of rumors that suggest the two don’t get along.
Those who follow Jeremy and Audrey know they have a covenant, faith-based marriage, and they’ve written books and blogs regarding how to have a closer relationship with God. Jacob has denounced Christianity in the past, though. “Christians as I have experienced them have assumed a real and damaging sense of superiority over all other belief systems,” he wrote on his personal blog — and he very well may have been talking about Jeremy and Audrey.
Even more recently, it seems Jacob called out Audrey via his Instagram over a video she posted in support of Black Lives Matter. He called the video “police propaganda” and a bad example of how to support the important movement. Audrey then noted she was “weathering a shame storm” on her Instagram Story after.
Jeremy and Audrey started repairing their old van
Jacob and his wife, Isabel Rock, travel and live out of their van. Amy’s even posted about Jacob’s freeing “van life” and how the young couple is always on the road. And it seems Jeremy and Audrey are taking a note from Jacob’s book this time, as they’re also restoring an old van they had when they first started dating.
“If you know the story, it was this exact VW bus (Blue Moon) that we sat in moments before our shoe tossing mission and moments after becoming boyfriend and girlfriend. We drove around in her everywhere the summer of 2011 while we were falling in love,” Audrey captioned her Instagram post showing Jeremy sitting in the van with their two kids.
She then explained that Jeremy sold the van, Blue Moon, to help with a down payment on their apartment in Los Angeles. And six years later, the guy Jeremy sold it to wanted to sell it back. Now, Blue Moon is back where she belongs.
Fans think Jacob is throwing shade with a photo of his van
We’re not sure exactly how Jacob feels about his older brother having a very similar van in his possession. But fans think the younger sibling is getting passive-aggressive. Jacob posted a photo of his van to his Instagram Story on July 8, the same day Audrey posted her photos of Blue Moon.
“I think Jacob is the most self-aware of the Roloffs,” a Reddit user commented regarding the Story. “I love the passive aggressiveness of it all.”
“I think Jacob shares plenty of interests with Jeremy (photography and the van, mostly), which is normal since he looked up to big bro when he was younger but the key difference was that Izzy was totally down to pursuing a lifestyle based around them and Audrey was not,” another added.
In another thread, a Reddit user wrote, “This is obviously a jab at Jacob and Izzy since they seem to be at odds about, I don’t know, being a decent empathetic human being.”
We may never know if Jeremy and Jacob are really feuding, but given what we’ve seen, we doubt they’ll be hanging out anytime soon.
