Jeremy and Audrey Roloff from Little People, Big World often share photos of their lives on Instagram, whether it's a snap of their adorable daughter Ember or a with family. They also run a blog called , where they talk about building a strong marriage.
Given their significant online presence, some fans were surprised at a recent Instagram post from Jeremy.
"Phones are ruining our love stories. I believe that the single most lethal problem concerning our love stories is our phones," he wrote in the caption. "It’s a tragedy. It’s something we must control. And it’s immediate."
But some fans were quick to point out that he and Audrey seem to be pretty big phone users.
"My point is practice what you preach," wrote one user. "If you think it's such a massive problem in our society, then why do you continue to do it yourself? You're using this social media platform Instagram and Facebook) to write/ tell us your thoughts, ideas and beliefs. And you do so by cell phones, tablet, or computer. So, aren't you just as guilty as everyone else?"
Another wrote, "I am not trying to sound hypocritical or judgmental but don’t you guys post most of your daily lives on the Insta stories? You must have your phones and camera up all the time."
Jeremy himself replied to many of the comments to clarify his message.
"Warning folks about their phone use (which is an obvious problem in society) is different than saying we must destroy all phones. Which is what many people seem to have heard. I could have mailed everyone, but this seemed faster and easier. Yes, it’s ironic," he wrote.
He also pointed out that while he and Audrey are regular social media users, they aren't really posting all that often.
"So, since having my Instagram I have posted less than twice a week. (That’s not very much at all)," he replied to one commenter.
That said, he admitted that he and Audrey are still working towards setting their own effective phone boundaries.
"It’s definitely something we’re still working on and by no means have mastered," he wrote in a comment.
At least he's being honest!
