The public that once supported “Mama June” Shannon has turned against her. Since news broke that June Shannon, known as Mama June on the now cancelled TLC reality series Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, has been seeing an ex-boyfriend who is a convicted sex offender, June Shannon has insisted that she has done nothing wrong.
Mama June released a statement on her Facebook page, just after the scandal broke, asking longtime fans not to believe everything they read, and to remember that people sell false stories to tabloids all the time.
“… i promise my kids r #1 priority over anything else and I would never put them in danger period over this or anything else they r my life this is my past I left him 10 yrs ago for it and I wouldn’t go back”
Evidence is mounting that Mama June is not being honest with her fans. In fact, TMZ has released numerous photos that show Mama June and her sex offender ex, Mark McDaniel. The latest photos released show Mama June, Mark McDaniel, and the titular star of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, 9-year-old Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson. Meaning Mama June has been exposing her daughter to a convicted child molester. Even more troubling is that the pictures seem to show Mama June, Honey Boo Boo, and McDaniel shopping for a new house.
The constant photos from TMZ, which Mama June insists are fakes, has caused confusion with Shannon and her daughter Anna, who McDaniel was convicted of molesting. According to Radar Online, Anna Shannon Cardwell is getting conflicting stories from the media and her mother, Mama June.
Cardwell may be claiming confusion now, but back in March, Mama June released a statement via Facebook saying that her 20-year-old daughter was leaving the show and wanted nothing to do with the family. Mark McDaniel was released from prison March 1, 2014. Could the timing be a mere coincidence, or could the alleged relationship between Mama June and Mark McDaniel have been happening for longer than anybody thinks?
The picture we just posted of Honey Boo Boo being touched by the guy who molested her sister really angers me. pic.twitter.com/sacCQv3N3T
