LITTLE People star Amy Roloff shared a cryptic post as fans ripped her ex-husband Matt after son Zach’s surgery.
Critics have accused the Roloff patriarch of pretending to be the “best dad” amid Zach’s health scare.
Amy, 60, shared a photo of herself and her father on her Instagram feed.
The photo showed her father smiling proudly as he stood a little behind her, leaning on a walking stick.
The father-daughter duo appeared to be enjoying a stroll in the snow together.
The Little People, Big World star captioned the post: “Thinking of my dad today. He’s 94 and doing incredibly well. I just think of the great influence my father had in my life. I love you dad.”
She then clarified in the comments: “Sorry it’s not his birthday – his birthday was in January. I was just thinking about my dad while having a conversation about parents and raising children…
“Both of my parents did a great job raising my sisters, my brother and me. We’re doing our best as parents and we hope our kids know how much we love them and grow up to be good adults and when they become parents… he’s a good dad.”
Fans seemed to think Amy was giving a subtle sting to her ex Matt, who is being criticized for not being there for her son Zach.
Zach’s wife, Tori Roloff, announced that he was hospitalized on February 9 and underwent “scary” emergency brain surgery.

Critics have dragged Matt online amid the health scares, accusing him of putting up a front.
Several haters noted that Zach’s father attended the Super Bowl media day after being invited by First Class Fatherhood.
The event took place amid the horrific ordeal involving his son.
Matt shared an Instagram post from media day that included a photo of himself and podcast host Alex Lace in skirt suits.
He revealed in the caption, “I met almost every player in tonight’s Super Bowl from both teams at media day last week…
“@alec_lace from @firstclassfatherhood invited me to join in as he interviewed all the dads (and dads of gamers) featured in today’s game. Some very cool and solid advice and perspective was shared…
“Check out @firstclassfatherhood for direct links to the NFL dads.”
Critics flocked to the comments to share their thoughts, with one writing: “Interesting. First class dads would go back in 1st class to see their son who had emergency surgery.”
Another said: “At least we know Amy puts family first. She was there for Zach and Tori! Instead of being on a journey. Shame on you Matt.”
A third chimed in: “Matt would you just stop? Instead of going to your son who just had emergency brain surgery, you’re at the Super Bowl beating all the dads like you’re the best dad in the world and you’re not.”
According to Tori, Zach was admitted for emergency brain surgery last week for an emergency shunt revision.
A shunt is a hollow tube surgically inserted into the brain or – in some cases – the spine, which helps drain CSF.
After the fluid drains, according to John Hopkins Medicine, it “is diverted to another location in the body where it can be reabsorbed.”
The procedure helps relieve pressure on the brain and aids in relieving many symptoms and conditions, including difficulty walking, mild dementia, and poor bladder control.
Tori said in her post revealing Zach’s situation, “It’s been a scary 72 hours but he’s fine and recovering!”
Zach’s mom, Amy, stepped up to the plate after learning her son needed surgery.
Amy had scheduled a live session for her fans but canceled the event to watch Tori and Zach’s children while they were in the hospital.
Matt, meanwhile, took to social media to ask for prayers and praise his daughter-in-law for taking care of his son.
After Zach recovered at home, Matt headed to Arizona with his girlfriend Caryn Chandler to vacation and visit his mother.
