Why Was Here Comes Honey Boo canceled?
A reality television series about the family of a child beauty pageant contestant was cancelled after four seasons when it was discovered that the father of the child was a convicted sex offender.
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo was terminated by TLC after reports surfaced that June Shannon was dating a man convicted of child abuse. Shannon and her older daughter Lauryn denied the reports, and Shannon’s oldest daughter confirmed that she was the abused child.
After the show’s cancellation, Vivid Entertainment president Steven Hirsch offered June Shannon and her former partner Mike Thompson $1 million to appear in a adult film. June declined on the grounds that she had more respect for her family.
Alana collaborated with Adam Barta on a song, and June and Sugar Bear appeared on a reality show. Sugar Bear revealed his infidelity to June.
