WASHINGTON COUNTY, Oregon — The stars of a popular TLC reality show say they are getting death threats.

“Little People, Big World” has chronicled the life of Matt and Amy Roloff and their children for years.

The couple, who live in Washington County, Oregon, say they have been getting messages via Facebook and email since April threatening to kill and rape their daughter, Molly, and Amy. There is also a threat to blow up the farm where they live.

“I got this most threatening Facebook message, and so we all started going on our Facebooks and looking at our messages and sure enough we were getting similar ones,” Matt Roloff said.

“I’m scared at night, I’m a lot more afraid at night when it’s dark here. Let’s stay in my house, because they could be half a mile, quarter mile, whatever, on my property,” Amy Roloff said.

The Roloffs say they’ve also had strange phone calls and have spotted a suspicious car outside of their house.

Authorities say they are investigating.
