TLC Cancels Honey Boo Boo
TLC has pulled the plug on Honey Boo Boo.
We found out yesterday that "Mama June" (June Shannon) is dating a convicted child molester name Mark McDaniel. The two were dating 10 years ago when he reportedly forced himself onto an 8-year-old child. McDaniel was released from prison this spring, and the two are rumored to be back together again.
TLC initially told ABC News yesterday that they were "very concerned" and that the network was "reassessing the future of the series". They have now decided to sever all ties.
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 fifth season of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo has been filmed, but TLC says the new episodes will not air.
