This is the last person we’d expect to be caught in this kind of controversy…
Little People, Big World star Tori Roloff has seemingly come under fire after posting a video of her one-month-old son Jackson rolling around and playing. While the video itself is pretty innocuous, people were understandably offended by her caption, in which she urges her son — who who has dwarfism — to “stop growing.”
Though the video has since been removed, she left an Instagram story up with the same message.

While the Zach Roloff’s wife, 26, always made it clear that she would love her child no matter what, she was never shy about expressing her concerns about having a child with any type of “difference.”
“It’s a big deal. It is scary. No parent wants to hear that their child is different, no matter what,” Tori explained on an episode of LPBW. “I think as a parent, it would be scary. If you didn’t know anything about dwarfism and you found your child was a dwarf, that would be scary. There are certain things that come along with having an achondroplasia child that would be more difficult than having a child that was average height.”
When Jackson was born with achondroplasia — the same form of dwarfism as his father, 27 — Zach knew he was ready for any challenges that came Jackson’s way.
“He may have to take two steps for everyone else’s one step, but hopefully we’ll raise him in a way where that won’t stop him,” the new dad gushed.
