Little People's Jacob Roloff slams sister-in-law Audrey's Black Lives Matter post and says 'this is not activism'

LITTLE People, Big World star Jacob Roloff slammed his sister-in-law's recent Black Lives Matter post and insisted "this is not activism".

The reality star blasted Audrey after she reposted her brother's video seemingly about unity to her Instagram Stories and claimed it was in fact "police propaganda".

Sharing the post to highlight what was wrong with it, Jacob wrote: "Things like this are very very bad".

"White people with moneyed cameras and moneyed families using black music, black message, black faces, to spread police propaganda and white Christian voices while contributing nothing to the movement, no call to donation, no call to action; only empty gestures and fancy platitudes.

"This is not activism!" he concluded before adding a link to donate to a fund in George Floyd's daughter's name.

Yet, Jacob's grievances didn't end there as he commented underneath Audrey's brother Jack Botti's post and reiterated the same sentiment he shared in his Instagram Story.

He raged: "This is police propaganda ignoring the fact that in several of the clips, hours later the same police were tear gassing protesters and suited in riot gear.

"The SAME cities where they get kudos for kneeling.

"All while George Floyd’s killers only just got charged due to this national outrage, and #BreonnaTaylor ‘s killers are still free, Sandra Bland’s killer is still free… no call to action, donation, anything. We should be sharing videos from black perspectives, not white videos of white perspectives with black music! #NoJusticeNoPeace".

Jacob's wife Isabel echoed his sentiment and wrote: "Where is the call to action? A video is a video but where is the donation button?"

Responding, Jacob added: "@Jackbotti indeed there are already viral black voices that can be shared (not used): Cornel West, son of a Baptist minister, Protestant Rev. William Barber Jr., Brittany Packnett…….. ".

Following Jacob's public frustration, the original post on Audrey's Instagram Story has now seemingly been deleted.
Earlier this month, Jacob said that he feels embarrassed being related to people who support President Trump.

"I, too, am embarrassed to be related to Trump voters," he wrote on Twitter.

It would appear to be a direct reference to his brother Jeremy and his wife Audrey, who has previously blogged her apparent support for Trump.

It comes after fans expressed concern that Jacob has split from his wife, Isabel, after posting a rather cryptic message on his social media, saying he "feels like s**t" and "wants her back."

The 23-year-old and Isabel tied the knot on September 7, 2019, after getting engaged two years prior in 2017.

Along with a screengrab of the definition of the word "ignorance," he wrote: "Feel like pure s**t, just want her back."

Fans quickly took to the comment to ask if he was OK as they believed he might be referring to his bride.

Jacob seemingly brushed off any potential rumors as he wrote: "This is a meme fyi and is a reference in jest to some ministry developments in the Christian world. Watch THE FAMILY on Netflix."

The two got hitched eight months ago in a small and private ceremony at the the Roloff Farm in Oregon.

Minimal pictures were shared from the wedding as the youngest of the Roloff kids cut ties from the show five years ago, after turning 18.

He joined siblings Jeremy and Molly in stepping back from the limelight.

Back in 2016, Jacob slammed the producers of the show for making up the drama featured in the series.

As a teen, he claimed his parents owed him money from the longtime series and distanced himself from reality fame and his whole family.

Despite their previous issues and his refusal to appear on the show, he is now very close with his family.
