When everyday people sign on to star on a reality show, they wind up with some fame, but along with all the fun things that come with being famous, there are some downsides as well. You can't go places without being recognized and asked for photos, and you can't post pictures of your family without trolls coming along and criticizing them.
That's something Zach and Tori Roloff have learned, and a recent photo they put on Instagram has them learning it again. The stars of TLC's Little People, Big World spent some time in Michigan and took a photo of their one-year-old son, Jackson, sitting on a rocky beach near where Lake Michigan meets Lake Huron.
It's a beautiful shot of the little boy, but some people took issue with it.
A few of the Roloffs' followers felt that Zach and Tori were endangering the life of their son by leaving him so close to the water unattended.
Plenty of fans came to the parents' defense, pointing out that Zach and Tori were just a couple feet away taking a photo, and blasting the haters for shaming the Roloffs.
Sadly, it isn't the pair's first time facing criticism over a photo of their son. Recently, Zach put up a pic of him holding Jackson on a riding mower and had to add a disclaimer that says in all caps, "GUYS. THE MOWER WASN'T ON."
They've gotten so used to the negative comments that they've started to defend themselves before the trolls even start. On a pic of Zach and Jackson on a tractor, Tori wrote in the caption, "Before I get ripped apart in the comments please take into consideration my husband and I would never put baby j in harms way. Kthanksenjoy."
