Honey Boo Boo ban: Why Crazy Tony got the boot
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.
Crazy Tony has a confrontation with police and gets the boot!
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 Booepisodes, 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.
Drawing the line for acceptable behavior just past pet pigs pooping on the kitchen table but before grown men interfering with traffic, TLC is keeping family viewers in mind, apparently.
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."
