Matt Roloff took to his Instagram over the weekend to show followers how work continues on the farm. “Wood chips flowing In…” he captioned a video of a tractor trailer dumping farm materials on the ground.

One of Matt’s followers took to the comments to call him out for the lack of safety. “Is no one concerned with safety? That truck could easily tip over,” they wrote.

The Roloff family patriarch often interacts with his social media followers. He spotted the comment and replied to defend the safety of his employees.

He started off by agreeing that trucks like that can and do tip over. However, he noted that everyone present stayed in the ‘sweet spot’ where they would remain safe if an accident happened.

Roloff further elaborated that in his 30 years on the farm, only three trucks of this size have ‘caved over.’

He noted that it’s the truck drivers’ responsibility to ‘know the flat lift.’ It is the responsibility of spectators and farm workers to “stay out of harms [sic] way.

While Matt Roloff did a great job defending himself, another of his followers spoke up, as well. They said that they’ve always admired how much planning goes into Matt’s projects.

In response, the LPBW star wrote, “I’m very proud of our employees safety record over the years.” He also shared something his dad taught him – “You can Never Ever be too careful.”

Backlash from LPBW fans too much for Matt?

In another social media post last week, Matt Roloff explained his decision to sell part of the farm. He claimed that his other sons, Zach and Jeremy, couldn’t come to an agreement on purchasing the land.

While Jeremy Roloff remained mum about his dad’s side of the story, Zach did not. He left a scathing reply calling his dad out for manipulating the narrative.

But if you look at the post on Matt Roloff’s Instagram, Zach’s comment is gone. In fact, all the comments are gone.
