What’s going on here? Things got a little weird when a fan got heated in the comments of Amy Roloff’s May 29 Instagram post about her “perfect day” with her boyfriend, Chris Marek. The follower left a reply calling her ex-husband, Matt Roloff, “dismissive” and “disgusting,” among other insults. Amy “liked” the reply, but shockingly, so did Matt. It seems like he’s feeling a little guilty for how his marriage ended, especially since a video recently resurfaced in which Amy, 54, shared her suspicions that the 57-year-old and his girlfriend, Caryn Chandler, may have been “more than just friends” before he was divorced.
“I’ve been fortunate enough to be married to my wonderful husband for 30 years, and he often tells me that I have the gift of discernment and should share my heart more often, so I’m taking his advice tonight,” the fan began the comment both Roloffs eventually “liked.” “I actually cried last night while watching your reaction to Matt’s totally dismissive speech about making a decision.” (They’re referring to the season 19 finale of Little People, Big World, which involved Amy’s decision regarding what to do with Roloff Farms).
The response continued, “I could tell you were fighting back tears and most likely blown away at his ability to forget how much you loved him, and how you raised his children with very little help from him, cooked for him, washed his clothes, dropped what you were doing to meet his sometimes ridiculous demands … and now he’s giving you life advice about how easy it should be for you to just turn over the place you raised your children — and hoped to share with him until ‘death do you part’ — to him and his new lady.”
The follower added, “It’s disgusting how he and Caryn mock you, and I can’t imagine how it must make your children feel. I know Matt isn’t an entirely terrible person and has some great strengths, but he certainly did not show any of them this season.” Clearly, this fan had some feelings about how the farm negotiations went down on LPBW.
We think it’s super weird that Matt would “like” a comment referring to himself and his girlfriend as “disgusting,” particularly one that slammed him for his actions during his marriage so soundly. Did he not read the whole thing? It’s pretty defensive of Amy and pretty negative about her ex. Either Matt is just going through and “liking” any comment with his name in it, or maybe he’s feeling some guilt for his actions while he was married after all.
