We hate when nice people make the news for not so good reasons, and this Little People, Big World star is no exception. Tori Roloff is coming under fire for a post about spoiled kids that got some fans up in arms, resulting in the reality star mom taking it down.

  • Tori's now-deleted Instagram post showed 2-year-old Jackson in a pool with a message some find to be interesting.

    "If you raise your kids, you get to spoil your grandkids," Tori Roloff wrote in her Instagram post, In Touch Weekly reports. "If you spoil your kids you’ll end up raising your grandkids."

    Tori and Zach are proud parents to Jackson Roloff who's just as cute as he wants to be. The 2-year-old is going to be a big brother as Tori revealed she's expecting baby number two.

  • She clarified her sentiments about spoiling kids and what that means to her.

    "Just a thought. I really think my generation has made it more important to be their kids’ best friend and not help guide and support their kids with boundaries and structure," she continues. "I know we’re all doing the best we can but disciplining kiddos is essential to becoming a good citizen, not a taboo. Spoil with love."

  • But it looks like the damage was already done.

    "I don't really think that's a very fair statement to make …" a commenter wrote, In Touch reports.

    "You haven't had enough life experience yet to be able to say what circumstances could lead a parent to have to raise a grandchild," another added. "Be careful not to judge too harshly unless you have walked a mile in their shoes … God bless any grandparent who steps up and puts their retirement plans on hold in order to provide a safe and stable home when the parents are unable to. Raising grandchildren does not happen because of spoiling your children. It's so much more complex than that. If your children someday grow through adulthood unscathed consider it a blessing. It doesn't always end up that way."

  • Tori obviously felt some kind a way to take down the post. We hope she doesn't feel too bad.

    ... because we don't think her heart was in the wrong place.

    Keep your head up, Tori.
