The days of hollering for a dolla and forklift feet are well and truly over, and the reason why is particularly vomit-inducing.
According to TMZ, Mama June has reignited her relationship with Mark McDaniel's, a 53-year-old convicted child abuser who was sent to jail in 2004 for forcing oral sex on an 8-year-old child. He has only recently been released after 10 years behind bars for his crimes.
If this wasn't damning enough, the registered sex offender is also accused of abusing Mama June's own daughter, Chickadee (real name Anna) when she was a child.
Mama June initially denied the rumors about her renewed romantic involvement with McDaniels by claiming that the initial image was photoshopped, but more damning photos have been uncovered that reveal this is not the case.
In fact, it's become increasingly clear that Honey Boo Boo (real name Alana Thompson) is being put at risk by having prolonged contact with the sex offender.
In the wake of this upsetting child protection crisis, the hit TLC show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo has been cancelled over fears for the children's safety. The producers issued the following statement:
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
A television contract is not the only thing that Mama June has lost though, her eldest daughter Anna has also declared her relationship with her mother as pretty much dead. She told Radar online:
I believe she is seeing him and hanging around him. I’m hurt. I think me and Mama’s relationship may well be over
If you are desperately crying 'where fore art thou, child protection?' into the wind right now, there is a silver lining to all the public coverage of this families problems.
Georgia's child protection services told People magazine that:
Generally speaking, when we receive a report that children are living around a sex offender … it would certainly rise to the level of concern of us looking into it. From our point of view, when there are young children who are not able to protect themselves that are in daily contact or living with a sex offender, someone would go out and assess the situation and decide whether the children can stay there or not. If we thought a child was in harm’s way in any way, shape or form, we would develop a safety plan and make sure the children are not around an offender
Alana's father, Mike 'Sugar Bear' Thompson, is also reported to be seeking custody of his 9-year-old daughter.
I think I am going to go and watch at least an hour worth of puppy videos on a vodka drip to get over this shit now. Bye!
