Has fame changed Honey Boo Boo's family?

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo has banned a so-called friend from being a part of their much-despised hit reality show. Find out what the man known as Crazy Tony did that was so bad, and how he feels about Alana Thompson's family today.

Honey Boo Boo's ban against Crazy Tony is supposedly meant to keep TLC's reality show fit for families to watch together.

Explaining why Tony Lindsey — better known as Crazy Tony — has been forbidden to take part in any more Here Comes Honey Boo Boo episodes, Mama June told TMZ, "We love him as a friend... but that was a crazy story."

Just which crazy story is Mama June referring to? While we first suspected it was his interest in the hillbilly porn phenomenon, it turns out it was his gorilla-suit stunt resulting in five arrests that was the real issue.

Speaking of Crazy Tony, Mama June went on to say, "Not trying to be mean, but we want to keep it family-oriented."

Slinging an insult back at the family of Honey Boo Boo as a whole, Tony Lindsey said in response to the ban, "TV's changed that family."
