Go away, perfect parents! Shamers came out in full force after Zach Roloff shared a photo of his son, Jackson, at the edge of a lake. The Little People, Big World star posted the pic to his Instagram page earlier this week, and almost immediately, people began slamming the father-of-one.
“Kind of too close to the water for that baby by himself,” one person wrote. Another added, “I hope someone was closer by.” A third and fourth chimed in, “All by his lonesome” and “Weird.”
Luckily, several others came to the TLC personality’s defense. “Oh wow!! Scary a lil,” someone said. “But I know you are watching very closely keeping Jackson safe from big fishies!” A second was disgusted by people’s absurd commentary. “Oh, come on!!” they wrote. “I’m sure they woke up and thought, ‘Oh, let’s go and set Jackson up by the water, sit back, and see what happens today.’ He is fine!! They could be on him before he turns a knee to the ground.”
Of course, Jackson just recently began walking on his own, so he easily could have gotten himself up and hopped into the water before his parents could get to him!!!!! Ugh. Too bad there wasn’t a disable comment button specifically for body, parent, and pet-shaming. Yes, the latter exists.
Unfortunately, Baby J’s mama, Tori Roloff, has experienced plenty of shaming herself. So much so, that on a recent photo of Jackson covered in poop, she prefaced the pic by writing, “I share this with the risk of getting mom shamed (again — and for real I don’t care I don’t get humans sometimes).” Sigh. Get a life, people!
