Little People’s Jacob Roloff blames Alec Baldwin fatal prop gun shooting on ‘understaffing’ & ‘lack of training’

LITTLE People’s Jacob Roloff commented on Alec Baldwin's accidental prop gun shooting that killed a cinemetographer, calling it a "labor issue."

Jacob, 24, took to his Instagram Stories to point fingers at who he believes is to blame for the fatal accident.


The TV star shared a message from the non-profit organization and union activists, Labor Notes, sending their condolences to Halyna Hutchins – the cinemetographer who was killed on set due to an accidental misfire of a prop gun.

The note read: "RIP Halyna Hutchins. We send our condolences to her family and co-workers at Local 600. Sarah Jones, tragically killed in 2014, was a member of the same local. Solidarity to the workers who survive them both & are fighting for the safety & the dignity on the job all workers deserve."

The post included a photo of Halyna, 42, perched behind a camera.

Jacob added his thoughts to the sentiment writing: "The Alec Baldwin/Halyna Hutchins tragedy is a labor issue on understaffing, long hours, and lack of training."

The tragic incident happened on Thursday involving actor, Alec Baldwin while filming the movie Rust.

The 63-year-old was handed the gun by an assistant director who informed him that it was "cold" before he fired it, fatally striking Halyna and injuring director Joel Souza.

The incident is being investigated and filming has been put on pause.

BUTTING HEADS

Jacob has vocally supported liberal policies such as the legalization of marijuana, racial injustice and gun control since he was a teenager.

He has also gotten into several disagreements with his family over his beliefs and political views.

During the 2016 Presidential election, Jacob butted heads with his sister-in-law Aubrey for their opposing views on who should be Commander-in-chief.

The LPBW alum tweeted in October 2016: “What does it mean for Trump to say 'I don't accept the results of this election?' Clinton can just go on being President

“And he can go on being a total clown, sputtering out of relevance, and business. Pathetically still upset he lost.”

The same day, the red-headed reality star- who is expecting her third child- posted several Instagram Stories that celebrated Donald Trump, 75, during the debates.

She posted a clip that heard POTUS say: “We cannot take four more years of Barack Obama, and that’s what you get if you vote for Hillary Clinton.”

Right after, a female voice – seemingly Audrey – cheered and yelled “That was good!”

After a year of tense relations, Jacob unfollowed the mommy blogger on Instagram for the first time in December 2017, RadarOnline reported at the time.

At the time, he still followed Audrey’s husband, Jeremy, 31, and his other older siblings, Zach and Molly – whom he remains close with to this day.

WAR CONTINUES

One month later, their feud reached new heights when The Marriage Journal author appeared to slam Jacob’s engagement to his now-wife Isabel, 24.

She fired off in January 2018: “Some words on dating from a Christian perspective…

“Let’s just say you recently hurried into a relationship, dabbled with sexual intimacy, and then became emotionally attached.”

The scathing post continued: “As time passes, your friends and family may raise concerns about the person you’re dating.

“But you won’t be able to rationalize with them because all you will see is perfection. This is a titanic problem."

Tension between Jacob and Jeremy along with his wife seemed to improve later that year.

However, their feud was reignited once again in January 2019.

NEEDING DISTANCE

A source told RadarOnline that Jacob was yet again attempting to distance himself from the pair.

“People already know that he doesn’t really get along with Audrey.

"He thinks she’s too judgmental, and I’m guessing he just didn’t want to see her on his brothers’ account anymore,” the insider said.

Jacob appeared to re-follow his sister-in-law, but unfollowed her again after he slammed her Black Lives Matter post.

Responding to the ongoing protests due to George Floyd’s death in 2020, Audrey reposted her brother's video about unity to her Instagram Stories.

Jacob – who has attended multiple protests with his wife – called the video "police propaganda” and emphasized it was “not activism.”

The following day, Audrey posted that she was “weathering a shame storm.”

Jacob appeared to once again slam his brother and sister-in-law’s past support for Trump late last year.

On June 1, he tweeted: “I, too, am embarrassed to be related to Trump voters.”

FAMILY CELEBRATION

In September, the family seemed to put their strained relationship aside to celebrate Isabel's baby shower.

The young couple announced in July that they are expecting a baby boy together.

The duo made the revelation alongside several snaps from a sweet photoshoot, which showed Jacob cradling his wife’s growing baby bump.

Alongside the photos, they wrote: "We are elated to share that the baby boy we have been dreaming of is coming this December."
