He can never win. Matt Roloff shared a photo of himself and his girlfriend, Caryn Chandler, and for once the focus of fan criticism isn’t Caryn or their relationship. This time, people had something to say about the Little People, Big World star’s grammar.
“Today was a great day!” Matt, 57, began the caption on the post. “Got to hang out with Jackson earlier this afternoon and then this evening @carynchandler1 and me had a wonderful time at our dear friend’s daughter’s wedding.” Nothing particular controversial about that, right? But Matt still got critical comments. “*Karen [sic] and I. You look nice,” one person wrote. Another said, “Proper English is ‘I’ NOT ‘me’.” Ugh.
By now, Matt is pretty used to fans coming after him on social media. For instance, he once fired back at a troll on Instagram after they commented saying his girlfriend “was dating Matt when he was still married to Amy and she’s there for the money.” The reality TV star responded, “You couldn’t be further [from] the truth.”
Another time, Matt posted a sweet picture of himself and his partner on Instagram on July 14, and captioned the shot, “113-degree date night with this cutie and @thehughjackman.” Fans took to the comments that time to accuse Caryn of being a backstabber. “I can’t stand the backstabbing Karen [sic]!” one person wrote. Another replied, “She’s using you for money! [Which] is fine if you find happiness in that!! ” And another follower wrote, “Oh come on they have been in lust even when he was married … I understand now why Amy [Roloff] was devastated …”
This time around, the TV personality had some defenders. “Good manners would dictate you not correct his grammar,” one person replied to the “proper English” comment. “Really? I mean really? So friggin’ petty!!!!! All of this happiness and that’s all you can post????😡” another said. What can we say? Haters gonna hate.
