Jade Roper Tolbert is not here for comments about her daughter.

The Season 19 “Bachelor” contestant took to her Instagram Stories Thursday to shut down followers who send her comments about her daughter, Emmy.

Tolbert shared a screenshot of one of the messages she received, which suggested Emmy was “kind of showing signs of autism.”

“You all, these are NOT okay messages to send to people,” Tolbert wrote over the screenshot. “If you all mean well, it’s still not ok to say she has Autism or needs speech therapy or to comment any sort of thing like that to anyone about their child. We are her parents, we have a great pediatrician, and we know her development. Comments like this really throw me for a loop.”

She then shared another screenshot of someone questioning why she posts if she doesn’t want comments. 

“I’m saying people would never come up to someone in public and say these thing,” Tolbert added. “You don’t get to go rogue because you’re behind a keyboard.”
