Little People's Audrey Roloff slammed for 'disgusting' comment about Texas school shooting

AUDREY Roloff has been slammed for making a "disgusting" comment about the Texas school shooting.

The Little People, Big World star, 30, faced backlash for urging fans to find "hope" despite the devastating tragedy.



On Tuesday, Salvador Ramos, 18, killed 19 children and two teachers at Robb Elementary in Uvalde, Texas.

The gunman left 17 others injured. Ramos was shot dead by police following his sick killing spree.

One day after the horrific incident, Audrey shared a quote on her Instagram Story that read: "Even in the shadow of tragedy, let us not lose hope.

"Give us eyes to see the rapid movements of mercy rushing to fill these newly wounded spaces."

The quote is from the book, "A Liturgy For Grieving a National Tragedy".

Audrey's critics branded her "disrespectful" for trying to put a "positive" spin on the tragedy.

One wrote on Reddit: "How dare someone suggest that any act of mercy can fill this 'void'? To even classify this level of loss as a 'void' is disrespectful and disgusting.

"They were 8-12-year-old innocent children that were murdered while in their classroom."

Another added: "I hate the toxic positivity culture. How does she even attempt to find positivity in this?"

A third posted: "Disgusting. Read the room. Ugh, I hate her even more now. I bet she wouldn’t be spewing this s**t if it was her child that was just murdered at school."

Ramos opened fire inside the school, shooting at children in several classrooms during a horrific 94-minute rampage.

Since the shooting, dozens of celebrities – including Kim Kardashian – have been calling for stricter gun control laws.

Meanwhile, Audrey has come under fire several times in recent months for her "out-of-touch" social media posts.

Last month, she was slammed for boasting that she has been to Hawaii five times.
