Jacob Roloff from Little People, Big World is back in the spotlight for controversial views that go against what the rest of the Roloff family believes. It’s no secret that Jacob had fought with his family over religion and money in the past, starting in 2015 when the youngest Roloff turned 18. As an adult, Jacob Roloff began a public social media feud with the rest of the Roloff clan, first stating on Twitter that he felt like he was cheated out of money from his time spent on Little People, Big World. Jacob has also publicly revealed on his Ask.fm account that he doesn’t share in his family’s religious beliefs, and now he’s at odds with his family over politics, according to a new report by Radar Online on Friday.
The rest of the Roloff family, including patriarch, Matt Roloff, 55, matriarch, Amy Roloff, 52, twins, Jeremy and Zach Roloff, both 26, and Molly Roloff, 23, all follow the Christian religion and support conservative political views, while Jacob Roloff has publicly shared in the past that he’s agnostic, meaning he doesn’t believe nor disbelieve in God. In an ongoing question and answer session on his Ask.fm page, Jacob Roloff, who’s now 19, stated over a year ago that he’s “just not a Christian.” Jacob went on to explain that he’s never done anything to be considered a Christian, except to be born into a Christian family. Now, as Jacob’s older brother, Jeremy, and his wife, Audrey, 24, constantly blog about their Christian religion, and denounce liberal, as well as progressive views, on social media, Jacob is defending legalization of marijuana and gun control on his Twitter account.
Some fans of Little People, Big World think that Jacob Roloff’s widely differing political and religious views will finally completely alienate him from the rest of the Roloff family. However, estrangement rumors have been swirling for quite a while, dating as far back as September 2015, when Radar Online also shared that Jacob was feuding with his family, after saying that he didn’t like filming for Little People, Big World, and that he felt like he was owed money from appearing regularly on his family’s TLC reality TV series for four seasons, mainly on seasons two through six, from late 2006 to 2010, starting when he was only 9-years-old. Jacob Roloff has since made amends with his mother, Amy, saying he’s done with “parent squabbles,” but he still only just follows older sister, Molly, on social media.
“Even with sibling and parent quarrels, it was all part of it. I love this picture, and I love my mom.”
But as TLC picked up new seasons of Little People, Big World in 2014, after taking a four-year hiatus, Jacob Roloff continues to let viewers know that he’s nothing like the rest of his conservative Christian family, even after allegedly “making amends” earlier this year. Just recently, after Audrey Roloff took to her Instagram account to comment publicly on the last presidential debate, that took place on Wednesday, October 19, along with posting several debate clips that show obvious support for Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump, Jacob Roloff fired back on his Twitter account, calling Trump a “clown” and “pathetic” if he doesn’t accept a Hillary Clinton win come November 8. Jacob Roloff has also made controversial comments against vaccinations and for buying marijuana, while the rest of his family denounces homosexuality and “large progressive companies.”
Little People, Big World is supposed to be about accepting diversity, an idea that came about more than 10 years ago when TLC approached the Roloff family about filming a new reality show to educate people about dwarfism — a rare medical condition that causes short stature. However, after several seasons, loyal fans of the show are beginning to realize that certain members of the Roloff family need to practice acceptance themselves. People Magazine shared on Thursday that a new season of Little People, Big World has been picked up by TLC and will air on November 22, which will most likely mean more drama and controversy for the family, as Matt Roloff continues to struggle with health issues, Amy Roloff begins dating, and Jacob Roloff continues to clash with the rest of the Roloff family on social media.
