Amy Roloff Gets Dragged For Dating Chris Marek, Keeping Last Name

by at .  Updated at .

Amy Roloff really cannot catch a break.

The Little People, Big World star is mostly just living her life, hanging out at her farm and and preparing to film the new season of her family's hit reality show.

She's also soaking up all the time she can get with her two relatively new (and oh so adorable!) grandkids, of course.

And yet, for whatever reason, online trolls keep giving Amy crap.

In late August, for example, Roloff was criticized for taking a vacation with her boyfriend, Chris Marek, simply because daughter-in-law Audrey Roloff was close to giving birth.

As if all grandparents literally do nothing but sit by the phone during this sort of circumstance.

Then, Roloff was shamed by critics for sharing photos of her hawking various products, as opposed to photos her brand new granddaughter Ember Jean.

Nevermind the fact that Audrey and Jeremy Roloff, Ember's parents, were actually the ones choosing to take a break from the spotlight while they adjusted to parenthood.

Now, Amy has apparently ruffled the feathers of some Internet users simply by... hanging out with Malek?

The TLC star posted the above snapshot on Facebook this week, including with it a caption that reads:

"I love seeing Chris and he came out for a day each pumpkin weekend."

For some unexplainable reason, this post has drawn some harsh rebukes.

Take the below comment, for instance.

What can really be said about that, except:

WHAT? EXCUSE US?!?

Amy simply got divorced from Matt Roloff, without any rumors of infidelity on either end.

It was an amicable split and the ex-couple still spends plenty of time together, co-parenting and co-grandparenting.

We have no idea what Amy did wrong in the photo above or in general these days.

Just how desperate are folks to hate on Amy?

She even received comments that dragged her and Chris for not having their shoes tied!

Moreover, there's a group of losers out there who are giving Amy a hard time because she kept her married name.

shoes tied

The misguided line of thinking here is that Roloff is benefiting from being a Roloff - due to the popularity and power behind that last name - and that Amy doesn't deserve to reap the financial benefits of such an arrangement any longer. 

“Why does amy carry matts name when they are divorced??” asked Manawaiti Woolford on Facebook, adding: She should b using her maiden name not roloff.”

First, plenty of divorced women keep their married names. It's just a lot easier that way.

Second, Amy and Matt were married for over 20 years.

They built their family and their brand together. They have four kids together.

Thankfully, some fans out there understand this and have rushed to Roloff's defense:

All of this heat comes amidst chatter that Amy is feuding with Matt's girlfriend, Caryn Chandler.

Insiders claim Caryn hosted a birthday party for Matt earlier this month and didn't bother to invite Amy, snubbing the heck out of Matt's ex-wife.

This is just the latest example of tension between Matt's current lover and his former lover.

But Amy has never tried to exploit it for sympathy. She continues to take the high road, refusing to even comment on rumors of a feud.

It's also worth noting that Caryn knows Amy well. She served as the Roloff Farms manager prior to dating Matt.

So if anyone's relationship deserves some scrutiny here, it's that of Matt Roloff, not Amy Roloff.

Overall, however, these two are handling their divorce as maturely and respectfully as possible.

If only people who just surf online and leave comments from the comfort of their living room would do the same thing.
