‘LPBW’: Fans Think Tori Roloff Should Leave Instagram Altogether
Those who’ve been keeping up with Little People, Big World over the years adore Zach and Tori Roloff. Zach is the only one of Matt and Amy Roloff’s kids who stayed on the show, and he and his wife, Tori, share the details of their family with viewers.
Tori gets ultra-candid with her fans via Instagram, too. But fans are starting to wonder if she should leave social media altogether, as she’s not taking the internet hate well. Here’s what they’re saying.
Tori Roloff called out social media for being ‘a dark and mean place’
Tori has many fans who adore the way she chooses to parent her two kids, Jackson and Lilah. But not everyone’s impressed with her mom skills. And the more vulnerable she gets with her followers, the more she potentially opens herself up to critique.
Back in January 2020, Tori told her Instagram fans that she adores the support she gets. But she also mentioned the dark side of the internet. “There are days that social media can be a really dark and mean space but then there are other days (like today) where you all know how to make it positive,” she wrote. “I get so many nice messages and comments every day and I just want you guys to know I read them.”
She then noted that she’s still surprised so many of her fans have an investment in her life. “I really believe I’ve been given a gift with the amount of people I’m able to reach on a daily basis,” Tori added. “It’s still crazy to me that I have over a million followers and that people care at all about me and my family.”
She recently went off about her haters
While Tori loves her fans, she doesn’t keep quiet when someone says something offensive. On July 11, the mom of two posted a photo of her with her kids — and she added a caption about not owing her followers anything.
“I did not chose to be in the public eye,” Tori wrote. “I fell in love and I chose my husband then and I choose him every day since. This all comes along with him and our family and I feel like I’ve done a d*mn good job of being the best I can be.”
She then added a very direct message about her followers not “owning” her or “manipulating” her. “I don’t owe you anything. You don’t own me,” she continued. “You can’t manipulate me. This is my Instagram and I can choose what I want to share. If this doesn’t sit well with you … I’m sorry. It’s not my job to change your mind.”
Fans of ‘Little People, Big World’ think Tori should step away from Instagram
It looks like fans can tell all the negativity really gets to Tori. And many think that she should do away with her online platform altogether, as she has a history of calling out her haters and getting worked up over their criticism.
“Nobody is forcing you to participate,” one Reddit user noted. “Delete your social media and stop acting like you’re a super popular celebrity that people really care about.”
“If she truly didn’t want to be in the public eye, she wouldn’t be in it,” another added. “But she does and enjoys all of the perks it provides, including her ability to live a life of leisure.”
“If she wants real privacy she needs to privatize her account and go back to teaching in covid filled classrooms instead,” another added.
It seems Tori doesn’t have any plan to make her social media private despite the complaints. Hopefully, she’ll find a way to work around the negativity and continue sharing updates for all who are intrigued by what’s going on in her life!
