Why fans can’t stand Amy Roloff
Amy Roloff has performed on TLC for over 10 years, but that doesn’t mean she’s a fan favorite. Here are a few reasons why LPBW fans dislike Amy.
Amy Roloff has been a key figure in Small people, big world, but TLC viewers aren’t impressed with how Amy is handling her relationship with ex-husband Matt Roloff and their four children. After 22 full seasons and 16 years on TV, the Roloff kids, Zach, Jeremy, Molly and Jacob, have all grown up with partners and kids. Also, Amy, who once co-owned the Roloff Farm in Oregon, is no longer legally entitled to the Pumpkin Patch success.
After nearly 30 years of marriage, Amy and Matt divorced in 2016, and as part of the divorce settlement, Matt bought Amy back from the farm.

Fans think Amy came out of her divorce too soon
Although Amy and Matt filed for divorce in 2015, the former couple expressed their desire to go their separate ways publicly as early as 2014.

Many believe that before marrying Chris, Amy not only gave herself enough time to grow as a single woman and still hung up on her divorce. . “I keep feeling like Amy is only marrying Chris because she wants to get married.“, u/honestyp wrote just before Amy remarried. u/agnusdei07 was a Redditor who agreed with the comment, adding: “I wish [Amy] learned to deal with” with his apparent resentment towards Matt and Caryn “before becoming attached to another person.
Fans believe Amy prefers the twins to Molly and Jacob
While Zach inherited Amy’s form of dwarfism (achondroplasia), his twins Jeremy, Molly and Jacob do not have the disease and are of average height. While Zach is the only Roloff child still featured on Small people, big world, fans have consistently accused Amy of favoring Zach and Jeremy over Molly and Jacob since the early seasons.

From Amy’s messy house to her passive-aggressive banter, Small people, big world fans are ultimately put off by Amy’s personality. Although viewers recognize that Matt has his own set of problematic behaviors, TLC fans blame Amy for coddling Zach and Jeremy while quickly losing his temper when things don’t go his way. u/confusedjob22 commented, “[Amy’s] very strict and stern in front of the camera, but the kids are mostly out of control and do whatever they want no matter what.” while u/poochie47 abstract, “Allowing children and allowing them to grow up without any sense of responsibility means bad parenting.“Despite the backlash from fans towards Amy, Matt’s ex-wife isn’t planning on going anywhere, especially as the Roloffs continue to bicker over the future of the farm in Season 23.
