“Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” has been a star making vehicle for many people in Alana Thompson’s (Honey Boo Boo) family. One member of that family, Uncle Poodle appears to be seeing the negative side of that fame.
The openly gay uncle of Honey Boo Boo has allegedly been trolling the web for dates and that has come back to bite him should recent reports be true. TMZ is reporting that Uncle Poodle, who’s real name Lee Thompson has been trying to attract guys by sending naked pictures of himself to whoever he makes contact with.
One man, who says he talked to him using the gay dating app, Grindr claims that Thompson also mentions that he is on “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” almost right away. That man is now trying to sell several naked pictures that Thompson sent him during a chat.
The man says that Thompson named dropped almost immediately after they started chatting saying:
“So you know who honey boo boo is? That’s my niece.”
The Hollywood Gossip is reporting that the man initially made contact with Poodle under the guise of hooking up, but that that they never actually did get together. Now pics that include closeups of Thompson’s penis could be sold to the highest bidder.
It seems likely that Poodle will attempt legal action, but as of right now he has taken none. The Honey Boo Boo star also recently came out as being HIV positive. There is no word on whether or not he shares that bit of information with the men he talks to.
Do you think that name dropping and sharing naked pics is the right way to go about trying to meet someone? Will Thompson be able to stop the sale of the pictures before they hit the web?
