He’s no clapback king, but Little People, Big World star Matt Roloff still isn’t about to let anyone talk crap about his family or about him. On Tuesday, June 11, the star shut down a fan who went after the way he treated ex-wife Amy Roloff, comparing his relationship with her to his relationship with his new girlfriend, Caryn Chandler. According to the TLC celeb, fans don’t see everything that goes down in his life — and if they did, they’d know better than to blame him for his breakup.
The comment came after Matt, 57, and Caryn, 51, visited daughter Molly Roloff and her husband, Joel Silvius, at their new home in Spokane, Washington. But the fan wasn’t interested in the dad’s visit with his kids. Instead, they focused on his romantic relationships, writing, “Had you treated Amy the way you treat Caryn, maybe your marriage wouldn’t have hit the rocks.” But Matt wasn’t impressed. In response, he simply wrote back, “If only you knew! Unfortunately, I’m not one to talk negative about anyone … especially the mother of my children … but if you had more facts that are missing, you would see an entirely different thing.”
In the past, Matt’s been upfront about how he doesn’t allow “unnecessary mean comments about Amy or any of [his] family or friends.” Now, it seems he’s making it clear that that rule applies to himself, too — and that’s the only reason he’s not telling this commenter exactly why they’re wrong about what lead to his marriage “hitting the rocks.” Sure, he can’t catch every cruel comment that his haters (or his fans) leave, but he’s doing his best to discourage them. “I have banned and deleted a dozen or more followers in the past few weeks for one reason or another,” he revealed in May 2019. “Once you’re gone … [you’re] gone.”
And yet, it seems like Amy, 51, might not follow those same guidelines. Back in March 2019, she seemed to accuse her ex of cheating on her with Caryn. “I think when you start looking before you’re separated in marriage, that is hard,” she said in a Facebook Live filmed with a friend. “When you become involved or much more than just a friend, but you become more in a relationship than just say ‘Hey, hi friend, let’s go out for coffees’ type of thing, I think that can be hard on the other person as well.” The shade is real — but if you believe Matt, it’s certainly not mutual.
