There have been a lot of conflicting reports about Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star Mama June Shannon and her secret relationship with a convicted sex offender, but the recent evidence is the most disturbing yet.
The fact that Mama June was allegedly dating convicted child molester Mark McDaniel was already extremely troubling, but the story became even more sinister when it was revealed that the child that McDaniel had allegedly been molesting happened to be Mama June’s own daughter, Anna “Chickadee” Cardwell.
While Mama June has denied the allegations that she has once again struck up a relationship with McDaniel, TMZ has released some extremely disturbing pictures that show she has exposed her youngest daughter Alana Thompson, also known as Honey Boo Boo, to a monster.
A picture that was apparently taken last month shows McDaniel gently touching Alana on the shoulder as they sit on a staircase together with June. We don’t even need to explain what’s so wrong with this picture.
McDaniel was released from prison in Georgia earlier this year after serving 10 years behind bars for aggravated child molestation. Since reports about Mama June and McDaniel surfaced, the popular TLC reality show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo has been canceled.
But TV fame is not the only thing that Mama June stands to lose: the reality of the situation means that she may now face losing her children to child services.
“Generally speaking, when we receive a report that children are living around a sex offender… it would certainly rise to the level of concern of us looking into it,” Susan Boatwright of Georgia’s Division of Family and Children Services revealed to People magazine.
