NEWS: TMZ reports that TLC has cancelled “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” in the wake of allegations that June Shannon, aka Mama June, is dating convicted child molester Mark McDaniel.
According to the TMZ, the network has already shot an entire season of new episodes, but will not air them due to the allegations, as they believe that Shannon is putting her children at risk.
In a world that ignores and covers up domestic violence and child abuse in professional sports, where whole networks are dedicated to hunting and killing animals, I am skeptical of TLC’s swift action to cancel “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo”.
Is it a ploy to placate those of us who are outraged?
Is it just another spin — will HCHBB be reinstated after a short period of time, like that other stupid show, “Duck Dynasty”?
Or is this another kind of spin to garner more publicity and gauge the pulse of the public with regard to just exactly how much we’ll tolerate?
Were the advertisers outraged?
This is all speculation on my part because I don’t watch the show.
And why not, you might ask?
Yes, it’s offensive on a myriad of levels, but the major reason is that it pains me to my core to watch so many horrible fashion choices.
Happy Friday, y’all!
