After revealing that last week that he was sexually abuse by a produdtion member of Little People, Big World, Jacob Roloff is defending himself from online critics who are attacking him for naming his alleged abuser.
As we told you yesterday, Roloff detailed the alleged abuse he experienced while working with his family on the TLC series. In an Instagram post on Tuesday December 15, writing:
“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.” After acknowledging that he does not “expect to provide details of this encounter,” Roloff wrote that he hopes this man is “never allowed around children again.”
Jacob also 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.”
