We received a passionate complaint from an upset New Orleans resident who felt TLC or the producers of Little People, Big World did an injustice to the city of New Orleans.
Personally, I don't agree. The episode featuring the Roloffs in New Orleans would not deter anybody from visiting the city, in my own opinion. Amy faulted herself for not researching the historical spots of the city. I don't think it was insulting to the city.
However, someone took the time to write, was very passionate about it and wanted their voice heard, thus we are passing it on. While I don't agree with the complaint, I admire the pride the author has in the city and the desire for the city to get the best possible showcase as possible.
Subject: Roloff visit to New Orleans
As a resident of New Orleans, I was VERY disappointed and disturbed by the recent episode of Amy and her family in our City. It was the most insulting vision of New Orleans I have ever seen.
All the famous sites are NOT bars as was stated, and the streets do not look like one is in Disney World.
People do not normally zig zag around being totally disoriented and turned off.
If someone wasn't there to guide them with historical facts about our fascinating City then the Roloffs should not have been here at all.
You are not doing a favor to a City that is slowly trying to recover from one of the most devastating hurricanes in our history.
That the Roloffs are inspired by helping to rebuild in Biloxi but yet have "torn down" New Orleans is not to be believed.
I do not blame them but rather the producers who allowed this to happen.
I hope you will not show this episode again and further display a very ugly vision of one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Country.
