14Here Comes Honey Boo Boo - Mama June dates a sex offender
The titular star, Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson stomped into the spotlight on TLC's child pageant show Toddlers & Tiaras. There's little about the family that isn't controversial. From child obesity to giving a six-year-old Red Bull (known eloquently as her "go go juice") in order to perform better,
the family and their matriarch Mama June have given plenty of reasons to be generally disliked by television critics and viewers.
Their spinoff show, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, was abruptly canceled after reports that Mama June was dating a pedophile surfaced. The family denied the accusations. The pedophile in question, Mark Anthony McDaniel, was charged with molesting an 8-year-old and is currently a sex offender. To make matters worse, one of Mama June's children, Lauryn, eventually admitted that she was the child who was molested by the man her mother is dating.
