'Little People, Big World': Fight Erupts Over Amy Roloff's Last Name

Little People, Big World star Amy Roloff has been married to Chris Marek for a few months now, and things seem to get better than ever. The couple continues to enjoy a smooth-sailing relationship made even stronger by their union.

While some are very happy for the couple, others couldn't help but be more critical of a particular aspect of their marriage — Amy's unchanged last name.

Fans Divided By Her Last Name

She shared the recipe on Amy Roloff's Little Kitchen and uploaded a video of how to make the yummy treats on Instagram. However, controversy over her last name quickly clouded her festive video.

For the longest time, Amy has been getting questions about why she decided to keep Matt Roloff's last name. Many LPBW fans find it odd that she still uses it, even after marrying Chris Marek.

Opposing fans took to Amy Roloff's post and shared their thoughts about the matter. Some think the Little People, Big World star should've dropped Matt Roloff's surname since they officially got divorced. Others noted that Amy should use Marek as her last name since she's already married to Chris.

LPBW: Should Amy Drop the Roloff?

However, some see nothing wrong with Amy still using Roloff. They think the LPBW celeb is only doing business-wise. She has always been known as "Amy Roloff," so changing it now will somehow affect her brand. Not to mention the hassle of going through the tedious process of changing it.

Others added that as long as Chris Marek is okay with his wife still using Matt Roloff's last name, there shouldn't be any problem. He seems understanding enough, not making a big deal out of it. 

So far, it doesn't look like she will drop the name anytime soon. Head back to Showbiz Army for more Little People, Big World updates.
