Honey Boo Boo Child does have a different kind of family. They are some rednecks from Georgia with really silly nicknames. They live on junk food and occasionally dine on some roadkill, neither are exactly the best cuisine for kiddos. But the CPS was alerted when 6-year old Alana (Honey Boo Boo Child) was videotaped dancing for money on a bar.
They were already aware of this family.. Neighbors had complained before that “the parents feed her energy drinks, cheese puffs for breakfast and brag about how they cook roadkill for meals. She even eats roadkill with flies swarming around her head!” but they never stepped in until they saw this video of Alana shaking it for money.
Mama June defended the video, saying that it was ‘it was a college bar, not a sleazy one’. Keep in mind, this was personal family footage and not something that was recorded by TLC.
But after an investigation, CPS decided that there was no reason to bring this concern to court so they threw out the case.
What do you think of the way that Honey Boo Boo Child is being raised?
