Little People, Big World star Mat Roloff was thrown out by fans for reuniting with his big family despite returning from a trip out of state a few days ago.
The 58-year-old reality star is considered at high risk for coronavirus because of his age and his type 2 diabetes, which he was diagnosed with in 2007.
In early March, the Oregon resident traveled to Arizona for what he thought was a two-week trip. After the global pandemic hit America, Matt Roloff said he spent “all this time in isolation” in the desert state.
Despite strict home stay orders still in effect, the father of four children made the long-distance drive after being away for seven weeks. Matt Roloff said that by avoiding a plane, he “hoped for a shorter quarantine period after returning home to the farm.
The Little People, Big World star reunited with his young grandchildren only “a few days” after his return to his farm.

After returning home safety from the drive from AZ and then isolating for a few days ..I finally got to see all 4 of my precious grandkids. How fun. A serious reminder of why I’ll always make it a priority to spend as much time as possible with these amazing children of Gods creation. #lovemygrandkids. Ember and Jackson wouldn’t let me out of their sight today. It was a great day to try and teach what 6 ft looked like. It kinda of worked. Most of the time! We still had fun all day long, very blessed to have a big farm to use to spread out. :))
During the family reunion, he joined his son Jeremy Roloff, 29, as they were showing his children the chicks that had just arrived yesterday in the garage.
“I finally got to see all four of my precious grandchildren. How funny,” she wrote on Instagram along with a video of him playing with two-year-old Ember Jean.
He continued: “A serious reminder of why I will always make it a priority to spend as much time as possible with these wonderful children of the creation of the gods. Today Ember and Jackson never let me out of their sight”. It was a great day to try to teach what a six-foot tall man looks like.
“It worked. Most of the time! We still had fun all day, very lucky to have a big farm to spread out on,” he said of their 110 acres of land.
Despite the enormous size of the farm, the fans were furious that it would endanger the health of his family. One person commented: “There is not much social distance here. No masks anywhere. I’m not trying to be provocative, I’m genuinely concerned about your health and those children”.
“Let’s hope no one in the Roloff clan regrets the decision “to hell with isolation, we have to get together on the farm,” wrote another after noticing that Matt Roloff is in “several risk categories”. Someone on Reddit shot: “It will be hard to relive your life if you die from taking the virus because you didn’t take any precautions.
“We still need to take reasonable precautions to help prevent the spread of the virus. Matt Roloff needed a 14-day quarantine, not a few days,” said a fan of his rapid return.
Another sarcastic silence: “A few days? Yes, of course. This will do the trick.” Matt Roloff’s girlfriend, Caryn Chandler, will “hold down the fort” at their Arizona home for “a few more weeks.”
Caryn started dating the outdoorsman after working at Roloff Farms for over 10 years with both Matt Roloff and his ex-wife Amy.
