Twice this week, Little People, Big World stars have made the news for allegedly making anti-gay comments. Prior to the anti-gay news surrounding Molly Roloff, Jeremy Roloff’s wife, Audrey Roloff, was accused of slamming readers of the couple’s blog who supported gay marriage. Radar Online also exclusively broke that story on Wednesday.
According to the report, Audrey Roloff recently took to the blog she started with husband, Jeremy, to defend her stance on gay marriage. On the blog, titled Beating 50 Percent, Audrey responded to readers in an April 7 post. Readers allegedly criticized the Roloff couple for only giving marriage advice to heterosexual relationships.

Audrey, who’s made several appearances on Little People, Big World since she married Matt and Amy’s oldest son Jeremy in 2014, responded to readers by saying that same-sex marriage is not something they agree with. Audrey went on to say that same-sex couples can still read the blog if they wish to.
“We are for opposite-sex marriages that are striving to give more than average to their marriages.”
Both Audrey, 24, and Jeremy, 26, have never kept it a secret that their blog is a resource for heterosexual couples. Little People, Big World also does not keep it a secret that the entire Roloff family is Christian in nature, although they don’t “proudly state their beliefs” on their popular long-running reality TV series. A Roloff fan blog called Spirits Wander first mentioned that Molly Roloff may share some of the same anti-gay beliefs as her older brother and sister-in-law.
Radar Online backed up this theory with a more detailed story on how Molly once took to social media to back comments made by staunch born-again Christian Kirk Cameron. Cameron openly shared on the Piers Morgan Tonight show that he thinks homosexuality is “unnatural, detrimental, and ultimately destructive to foundations of civilization.”
Molly Roloff, the only daughter of the Little People, Big World patriarch and matriarch, Matt and Amy Roloff, is said to have recently brought Cameron’s interview back into the spotlight by sharing a link on Facebook to a news story about the actor’s anti-gay comments. Along with the link, Molly allegedly posted her own thoughts supporting Cameron’s anti-gay views.
“Go Kirk for standing up for what you believe… Very brave.”
The 23-year-old recent graduate from a Christian college has since deleted the link and the comment from her personal Facebook page, but that wasn’t the first time Molly Roloff had shared her anti-LGBT views. Spirits Wander shared on Wednesday that it is a well-known fact that Molly publicly supported Cameron on social media years ago for anti-gay comments he made on CNN.

Critics of Little People, Big World say the Roloffs are cowards for not sharing their Christian beliefs more on their TLC reality series for fear of losing viewers. Little People, Big World follows the Roloff family as they live out their lives on the Roloff farm near Portland, Oregon, and has been ongoing since 2006. TLC originally aired Little People, Big World to educate people about dwarfism, since Matt, Amy, and Zach Roloff all share the same medical condition.
The most common form of dwarfism only occurs in four to 15 out of every 100,000 live births. Since dwarfism isn’t all that common, Little People, Big World was originally meant to “advocate for diversity and acceptance of differences,” a goal that some say the Roloff family may actually need to practice themselves.
