LITTLE People, Big World’s Matt Roloff has posted a touching birthday tribute to his girlfriend of six years, but some followers took offense to its wording.
The Little People star took to Instagram to post a couple of photos of Caryn Chandler, who just turned 56.

In the first pic, Caryn smiled happily as she stood during a beautiful sunset.
The sea could be seen behind her as she posed in a crochet detail white camisole with light makeup and her hair styled casually to one side.
Next, 61-year-old Matt shared a snap of the two sat on a loveseat as they filmed a confessional for the show.
Both were dressed casually, and Caryn leaned in toward Matt while they smiled wildly with a tiny pup relaxing in front of them.
Matt captioned the post: “Happy Birthday to the Sweetest, kindest most beautiful soul I’ve ever met! Happy Birthday @carynchandler1 …and many many more.”
However, some fans pointed out how Matt’s praise for his new girlfriend could be seen as a slight against his ex-wife Amy.
Matt and Amy, 60, announced their decision to divorce in 2015, after nearly 30 years of marriage.
One of his followers was quick to bring up his ex-wife, asking: “What about Amy?”
A second commenter pitched in with another comparison between the two relationships: “You seem so much happier with Caryn, Matt. Plus she supports all your projects and genuinely likes being around you.”
An Amy fan justified: “Amy was busy raising her children and running her home… let’s not forget that.”
Matt seemed to hint during a recent Q&A on Instagram that he might have plans to propose to Caryn.
Last week, he shared that he’d started the process of building a new home on his $4million Oregon family farm property, which he and Caryn will both live in.
However, a fan changed the subject in the comments section and boldly asked: “Where’s the big diamond ring?”
Matt replied: “Well, well. You just have to wait and see what happens.”
Other fans soon responded to the mysterious response.
“Get that prenup, buddy,” one user harshly said.
Another encouraged: “You’re a creative guy. Can’t wait to see your proposal!”
A third supported: “They make each other happy and that’s all that matters.”
Matt was dubbed “disrespectful” last week after he invited Amy’s new husband, Chris, for a “guy’s night” at a cabin on his property.
“I bet Amy didn’t like it that much!” one fan exclaimed.
Matt was quick to clap back in reply, writing: “No? Why not? It was her that I called to set it up. Amy’s a pretty secure and mature woman.”
“Actually it is disrespectful to Amy,” a second slammed, prompting the TLC star to respond: “Ah…you think so? That’s pretty bold.”
