Jeremy and Audrey Roloff have announced that they are quitting the show Little People Big World.
In a series of social media posts the couple announced that they decided last year that this season would be their final season
In an Instagram story/video that Jeremy and Audrey filmed in front of the familiar barn setting for LPBW interviews they gave this explanation:
Jeremy Roloff: "2 years ago when Audrey got pregnant that’s when I started thinking about how much longer I wanted to do this…when we had Ember it became apparent it’s time to make our exit and pursue other projects we have going. Over the last 8 months the Lord has been calling us out of the show and we’ve been pursuing our businesses and the ministry and Beating 50 percent and it’s been really fun and really excited to start pouring all of our energy and time into these things we have going on [ Audrey: "and to be able to...."] and it feels like it’s the right time".
RadarOnline's article pointed out that Jeremy and Audrey have been rather polarizing figures mostly due to the times when they've expressed their opinion on subjects such as gay rights/relationships and gender roles in marriage or vague support of Donald Trump.
Some Jeremy and Audrey fans have commented they are hoping that leaving LPBW will open the way to some sort of spin off show. Others have suggested this will allow Jeremy and Audrey to be even more outspoken about their Christian faith and beliefs about social issues and politics.
In other news about Roloffs who no longer appear on LPBW, Jacob Roloff has once again created some waves among LPBW fans for his recent Instagram Stories/videos.
Jacob who was once very outspoken had almost completely abandoned his controversial ways and words and had morphed into a friendly family Roloff character. Once Jacob and Isabel moved back to the farm to live with Mom Amy Roloff, Jacob's public attitude had changed, expressing regret for the controversial things he had said, quickly deleting references to them, and even speaking about God and spirituality.
Jacob has been promoting his new book constantly on his social media, even the other Roloffs helped promote his book.
Yet last week, Jacob reverted back to his outspoken side to post about political issues and his disdain for President Donald Trump and his immigration policies.
Jacob Roloff posted a picture of himself on his Instagram story holding a sign that said "If you have ever (a) Supported Trump (b) said MAGA, kindly do the following: Unfollow me and GET HELP
He also posted a photo of the immigration controversy with separating parents and their children which said "In sum: FUCK DONALD TRUMP.
After receiving some angry responses, Jacob deleted some of the negative comments and disabled the rest.
Of course one thing Jacob Roloff has never done even when he was in the height of this rebellious stage is to publicly point the finger at brother Jeremy Roloff. Afterall, Jeremy and Audrey have, multiple times, appeared to support Donald Trump. During the Presidential election they posted videos during the debate where they could be heard cheering as Donald Trump spoke and posted positive statements after Trump was elected. However, when they were questioned if they supported Trump by angry fans, they dodged the question and wouldn't explain why they were cheering his words.
