Here is one of the many times Amy Roloff has spoken about the subject:
Amy Roloff: "Whether parents need to be more involved in what their kids are doing, who they are associating with, what groups at school they are involved in, I'm not quite sure. A lot of the emphasis has been on the person that's being bullied, but I also want to take note to say why is a person wanting to bully someone else? What is going on in their life that they feel the need to hurt someone so much unless they themselves are hurting and this is their way of lashing out or making their own pain go away, but it is sad..."
Well, the latest revelation to come out of Jacob Roloff's ask.fm account, is that the Roloffs have their own history with bullying - but not as the victim - as the unrelenting bully.
It began, with Jacob's ex-girlfriend Vanessa, on her ask.fm account, mentioning her friend named Levi. It is important to note that this is not the Levi that viewers of LPBW know from early seasons of LPBW, the kid who was Jacob's friend.
However, the people asking Vanessa questions, were confused. Vanessa mentioned that Jacob and her friend Levi did not like each other. Confused people asked Vanessa why they didn't like each other because they used to hang out on LPBW episodes? Vanessa explained that she was talking about a different Levi and the Levi she was talking about used to go to Faith Bible Christian School, but left that school because Jacob bullied him so horribly.
I think you figured it out, but you realize when people ask you about Levi/Jacob, they think you are talking about Levi Pinyerd. Levi Pinyerd was portrayed on LPBW as Jacob's best friend growing up. When ppl see talk of you and "Levi" dating they think you mean Jacob's friend.
Lol no. (This) Levi was literally Jacob's least favorite person. Jacob bullied Levi into not going to faith anymore.
People then asked Jacob about it:
People then asked Jacob about it:
"Jacob bullied Levi into not going to faith anymore." Bullies suck. You should be ashamed.
Yea that's why I'm not a bully anymore
Or maybe you're not a bully anymore because most kids at LHS could beat you up? It says a lot about you that bullied people. Not surprised at all. You need professional help.
Okay well first of all, Guideline #1. Don't bully someone bigger than you.. So that wouldn't be a problem for me.. And I think I actually made him leave 7th grade, which is when I stopped.. And realized that I can just wait for people like you to say something dumb and make fun of that
So in addition to bad grades, teachers and bus drivers hated you (for no reason of course), you also bullied kids at Faith. The picture of why you were expelled is becoming a lot clearer, despite your "it was only cuz of grades" cries.
Yea damn I guess you're right.. Now what
Not much is worse than kids that bully other kids into leaving school. Pretty sure you're going to hell for that. And that IS something people can judge you on without "knowing you". You suck as a person.
Yea I bet.. Condemn me to hell again though, so I know that at least you're a good person
Did the kid's parent's not complain to the school because you were a celebrity Roloff and got special treatment? Good for Faith for finally getting up the courage to stand up to your family and give you the boot even if it was a couple years late.
Yea I know why'd it take so long.. Weird.. Must be special treatment!
Wow, so you bullied Levi into going to Liberty, then you got kicked out and went to Liberty. That's fucked up, Levi is such a nice guy. You should feel ashamed, but I doubt you do.
It's not like I planned that lol
It's really not something you should "lol" about. What you did is horrible, making someone suffer so much that they have to leave school. Like honestly, do you even feel bad that you did it?
I'm not actually the reason he left lol but I'm probably the reason he didn't care that he left
Ok and you know this how? What is the reason he left then?
I'm pretty sure he moved lol.. And his brother went to Liberty
This night has definitely been enlightening. You tortured someone so much that they wanted to change schools. You're even more of a dick than people imagined.
I guess so
Now the roles have switched and Levi has tons of friends and is popular, while you're a loser.
Yea damn, I guess I lose
Not an ounce of remorse in you.
Oh.. I feel really bad for what I did to Levi.. Am I better for it now? No lol.. And nothing's gonna change it or make it better so go find out what else you can discover about me from the Internet
Yes that would make you better, because any fucking normal person with a conscience would feel bad. I would even forgive you if you did. You're a piece of shit. I started out liking you, but you're fucking unbelievable how little you care about people.
"Any normal person" that's what sucks.. That shouldn't be said to anyone.. I can deal with things however I like there should be no gauge for what's normal and what's not. 8th grade after he left I told him I was sorry and stuff it's not like I need to continue, that's not what I do anymore and it's over so it doesn't matter lol
I just hope it wasn't your parents making you say sorry and it's because you felt bad for what you did and realized it was wrong. If that's the case, I could forgive you because everybody makes mistakes especially in middle school, but you really don't give that impression off.
I'm not really trying to impress any of you
I honestly don't care, live your life however you want, but when people see a wrong, they're going to say something. You don't have to be famous (which you're hardly) for people to hold you up to the standard of a decent human.
What's the drama about?
I don't know but it's starting to bore me
Anything that makes you confront what a shitty person you are, "bores you." It's your go to excuse.
I've been answering these questions all day
What are you accused of that's not true? Trying to think of the top things ppl say about you? Use drugs? True. Insult ppl on here? True. Got expelled? True. Bullied classmates? True.
Yea but I don't even think of half of those as negative lol
