Hey Internet — leave Amy Roloff alone! The Little People, Big World star is receiving online backlash for posting an adorable photo with boyfriend, Chris Marek. The seemingly innocent shot — which was taken at Roloff Farms in Oregon — shows the couple in a sweet embrace at the pumpkin patch. Unfortunately, people flooded social media with comments about his appearance and trustworthiness. Watch the video below to get the full scoop.
In the Facebook post with her semi-new beau, Amy wrote, “I love seeing Chris and he came out for a day each pumpkin weekend.” One fan wrote, “Very cute picture! I have never seen a picture where you look so happy, content, and stressless!” Another added, “You look great Amy. Can’t wait for your show to return. I miss watching you and your family. Glad to see you and Chris looking so happy.”
Others, however, apparently had an allergic reaction to happiness and #blessed vibes. “Chris looks like a closet pedophile. Amy is just the right size. She needs to open her eyes if the kids don’t like him, then they usually feel something.” Seriously, WTF. Someone else chimed in, “She was not a wise woman… this man… don’t look good here.” OK.

Love them forever and always❤ My #secondact is wonderful so far. #earlymothersdaymemory #lovebeingamom #imblessed #secondbeginning #grandmaamy #mil❤ #godisgoodalways
In June 2015, Amy and Matt Roloff decided to file for divorce after 27 years of marriage. They have four kids together — sons Zach, Jeremy, and Jacob and a daughter, Molly. They originally separated one year prior. “After 27 years of marriage, it is with great sadness that we have come to the difficult decision to file for divorce. We are proud of what we have accomplished together, including raising four wonderful children who have grown to become remarkable adults and building our strong and ongoing successful business,” they said in a statement to Us Weekly at the time.
The Roloff patriarch has also moved on from the relationship with their farm manager Caryn Chandler — which was not easy for Amy to cope with, especially when she showed up at Zach and his wife, Tori’s baby gender reveal party. “Seeing Caryn here threw me for a loop more than I would have liked. I think coming here to this particular event is an intimate family thing… It just throws a whole dynamic to my life here on the farm,” she admitted at the time. Still, we’ve never seen Amy so happy! Now if only Internet trolls would just let them live.
