Little People Big World News: Jacob Roloff Drops LPBW Child Molestation Bomb
TLC Little People, Big World spoilers reveal that Jacob Roloff is speaking out about the time he spent working on the reality show about his family, Little People, Big World.
On Tuesday, December 15, he posted these words to Instagram: “It is often much easier to think about things than it is to talk about them, and so this disclosure has been delayed, but through that delay, I have found the fortitude and words. As a child, I after what I realize now was a long grooming process, I was molested by an executive field producer for Little People, Big World.”

Roloff said he hopes this man is, “never allowed around children again and he does not,“expect to provide details of this encounter.”
He went on to explain, “By revealing this, I may be more fully understood and my perspective on issues such as child sexual abuse, child exploitation, and the collateral costs of reality television may be received more clearly. Although, I would have to add that this experience has not solely defined my point of view on any of these issues, nor has it defined my worldview in general.”
Roloff added that, “a child must process” and he needed “silence and time” to cope with what he went through.

Roloff said, “I continue my own contemplation on the voyeurism involved in the entire enterprise of reality television — a massive spectacle of drama and pain and argument and invasion, with a little joy sprinkled over, that viewers watch completely disassociated from the complex humans inside the simplistic ‘characters’ they see on TV.”
“Yet, there is no inherent causal connection between reality television production and childhood trauma. We are still sprinting ahead with the enterprise deaf, dumb, and blind, asking for forgiveness later, instead of asking harder preliminary questions of ourselves. The profits were indeed sweet. The actual experience was more complicated.”
He concluded his post by saying, “It must finally be emphasized that all fault lies with the predator, and no fault lies with any of my family members. I am certain that this is a positive moment for me, and another step toward a brighter future.”
