‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’ Goes Honey Bye-Bye


Hit reality TV show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo has been axed after the family matriarch was romantically linked to a convicted child molester.

The future of the program, about titular child beauty pageant contestant Honey Boo Boo, was thrown into doubt on Thursday after Mama June Shannon reportedly reconnected with former lover Mark McDaniel, who was imprisoned for child sex crimes in 2004.

Shannon dismissed the claims in a post on Facebook, insisting, “It isnt true i promise. My kids r #1 priority over anything else”, but her denial wasn’t enough for network bosses at TLC – they announced on Friday that the popular reality show, which debuted in 2012, had been cancelled.

A statement released to reads: “TLC has cancelled the series Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and ended all activities around the series, effective immediately.

“Supporting the health and welfare of these remarkable children is our only priority. TLC is faithfully committed to the children’s ongoing comfort and well being.”

The following message has since been posted to June Shannon’s Facebook page:

We can’t be the only ones who aren’t sad to see this show go.
