For the 3,679th time, it must be said:
People on the Internet can really suck.
The latest evident of this unfortunate fact can be traced back to a photo Audrey Roloff shared on Instagram this week.
The former Little People, Big World star – who walked away from that TLC series along with her husband last summer – loves nothing more than to post cute photos of her daughter, Ember.
On Monday, this is exactly what Audrey thought she was doing when she put up the snapshot below.
As you’re about to see, it features little Ember behind the wheel of a tractor on Roloff Farms, the sun setting in the background, a smile plastered on the toddler’s face.
"The Farmer’s daughter. Oh hey June in Helvetia. You can find us here all summer long," wrote Roloff as a caption, adding:
"Riding mules, chasing chickens, picking wildflowers, covered in berry stains and freckles, and watching sunsets by the embers. On repeat."
Despite this being pretty much what social media ought to be made for (adorable pictures of young kids having fun), Audrey has been somewhat roasted by a bunch of judgmental followers.
Can you guess why? Probably not, right?
It’s actually because Ember is… sitting behind the wheel of a tractor.
"Get her away from there right this instant, r u nuts?!?" wrote one annoyed user.
Added another: "You’re just asking for a dangerous accident there. #thinktwicemama."
And then a third: "Shame on U, Audrey. What if she fell and got run over?"
Crazy, right? That total strangers would take a mother to task for this?
But it’s actually happened before… to the Roloffs, no less!
In July 2018, Tori had to clap back against parent-shamers who had a similar reaction to a photo of her son also riding a large vehicle.
And, look, we don’t want to jump on too high of a horse here, but: WHAT THE HECK IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?!?
These kids are obviously safe and none of this is any of your business.
Can you please stop giving her crap for photos such as the one above and also the one here?
It’s possible that you aren’t the biggest fan of Audrey Roloff.
You may think she’s too self-righteous and you may think, as The Hollywood Gossip has often said, that Audrey exploits her religion at times to make money.
But even the absolute harshest critic has to be honest about something. He or she absolutely has to admit the following:
Audrey loves her daughter and would never do anything to hurt her.
Shame on you for ever thinking or implying otherwise.
