'LPBW': Did Jacob Shade Tori and Zach Over Face Masks?

Did Jacob Roloff just throw shade at his brother Zach and sister-in-law Tori? This is what some fans of Little People, Big World are insinuating after the younger Roloff shared an interesting article about face masks, which is seemingly in response to the couple's recent IG post.

Little People, Big World: Zach and Tori Roloff Question Use of Face Masks

Zach Roloff and his wife, Tori Roloff, made their stand known about wearing face masks. The LPBW couple shared their thoughts about the matter, which has been a big issue in many countries.

Zach, who was watching a soccer game on TV, seemed angry at the fact that the fans were allowed not to wear masks while schoolchildren were still required to do so. The 31-year-old dad felt like these children were oppressed while adults were "free to live and party."

"Unmasked fans, but our 5-year-olds need to wear masks in school?" the LPBW star added. "We are oppressing the weakest and indefensible while adults can be free to live and party. It's madness."

The soon-to-be father-of-three likened the situation to what happened with Titanic. He said that what's happening now is the opposite of what went on when the great ship sank.

"It's the opposite of the Titanic," Zach Roloff wrote on his Instagram Stories. "Instead of women and children on the lifeboats first, we left the kids on the boat while the adults went back to shore to live their life."

Tori Roloff later clarified that they weren't against face masks or anyone who wanted to wear them. The Little People, Big World mom pointed out that they disagree that children are still required to wear them at school while adults are free to go out maskless. Tori also wrote on her IG account that they are "not anti-mask, but we are pro-choice."

"If you believe masks work so well, then wear one, and you will receive no judgment from us," Tori Roloff wrote. "However we would expect the same grace to be given to others who believe differently."

Zach Roloff added that wearing masks "should be done for everyone," not just kids. "The fact it lingers for the kids is madness," he said.

LPBW: Jacob Roloff Sparks Controversy with Post Telling People To Wear Masks

A few hours after Zach and Tori's controversial posts, Jacob Roloff gave his two cents about the issue. The LPBW alum shared an image of a Twitter post, showing the increasing number of deaths daily due to the coronavirus.

The 25-year-old first-time dad encouraged his followers to "get vaccinated and wear masks," which somewhat went against what his relatives indicated in their respective IG posts.

"It's not just a bad medical decision to not do so (although it mainly is); it's also socially disrespectful and uncaring," the LPBW former star added. "Not everyone can be so cavalier about Long Covid. And in a pandemic, we are acutely interdependent. Individual choices can affect the whole, and a choice that endangers the social whole is not a valid or good one."

So far, it's unclear if Jacob's post was directed at his brother and sister-in-law. One thing is clear, though. The Little People, Big World family is not always on the same page.
