Is Honey Boo Boo a monster? The reality television star is being criticized after her appearance on The Tonight Show earlier this week. Apparently, Alana Thompson (nicknamed Honey Boo Boo) isn’t as adorable as she once was (and even that’s debatable). According to Softpedia.com, Alana was extremely rude while being interviewed by Jimmy Fallon. Perhaps going through some kind of phase, Alana seemed bored, and it’s clear that she didn’t want to be on that couch.
Christy O’Shoney from Salon.com witnessed the “grown-up” Honey Boo Boo like you have never seen. O’Shoney said that Alana was “mean, aggressive and rude, and acting like a spoiled brat throughout the interview.” She was even seen hitting her mother (lovingly known as “Mama June”) at times, but that “good” stuff was edited out for viewers at home.
Honey Boo Boo is a monster to many people — she has not ever been a polite, sweet child that warmed your heart. She has always been a sort of edgy, pushy little girl. While she has a tendency to make people laugh, Alana Thompson isn’t a good role model for your kids. The 9-year-old showcased very different behavior on The Tonight Show, however, and it has people wondering if she is going down a bad road.
Hollywood Life puts it best:
“Although everyone is used to Alana’s antics, being outright disrespectful is not the same thing as being a sassy little girl with a bit of redneck twang.”
Honey Boo Boo’s new monster persona isn’t going over well with the masses. Even fans of the show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo are annoyed with Alana Thompson — and Mama June’s failure to reprimand her daughter. Jimmy Fallon even spoke up a few times, telling Alana not to hit her mom. Yikes. Rather than tell her daughter to cut the crap, June Shannon just ignored her daughter’s behavior and actually encouraged her (check out the video above to see).
To his credit, Jimmy Fallon did great trying to deal with the unruly child. Per usual, he was able to make the situation funny — and the segment worked. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Mama June has insisted that her kids won’t be like the Kardashians. And while she might be right, you can be sure that the Kardashian kids would never act that way in public. So Alana Thompson likes to play in mud while Kim Kardashian’s 1-year-old daughter, North West, wears diamond stud earrings. Mama June is right. Her kids are nothing like the Kardashians.
Do you think Honey Boo Boo has become a monster?
