Oh, my. As big fans of Matt Roloff, this morning’s “Matt Roloff Heart Attack” rumor set out own hearts beating a bit fast. Alas, the Little People, Big World star is doing fine, and having a blast in New York City. In fact, those rumors were based on one tiny wee bit of footage, footage that got stretched far beyond the truth.
In the last scene of last night’s Little People, Big World, Roloff was spotted lying on the floor, looking fatigued. Viewers took the image and ran with it, pronouncing that he’d had a heart attack. On camera? And TLC aired it? Yeah, right. And then, like a children’s game of telephone, the rumor expanded and suddenly the internet was abuzz with news that Matt Roloff died. Right? Wrong.
Need proof? Matt Roloff dispelled the rumors himself by posting a photo of him alive on his Facebook page today. The photo was taken last night, in NYC. Check it out below:
