''Here Comes Honey Boo-Boo'' cancelled as Mama June's dating a sex offender
Her rumored involvement with McDaniel -- who was recently released after serving a year sentence -- touched off a firestorm that resulted in the cancellation of the popular TLC reality show "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" in October. The show centered around Shannon and her family, including 9-year-old daughter Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson, who came to fame competing in child beauty pageants.
Shannon's oldest daughter, Anna "Chickadee" Cardwell, 20, has said McDaniel molested her when she was 8. Shannon told ET's Brooke Anderson that she does believe "that something happened" between her daughter and McDaniel and that she's "told Anna not to bring up the past again.

It would be hard for me. She said she's seen him only twice since his release, once coincidentally and once at an arranged meeting for her year-old daughter, Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon, who grew up believing McDaniel was her father.
I can't answer those questions for Pumpkin. Now it looks like the story's taken a legitimately sinister turn as TLC - the channel responsible for Here Comes Honey Boo Boo - has cancelled the show, effective immediately.

Mama June is allegedly dating a man named Mark McDaniel, who was convicted in of aggravated child molestation. June was, according to sources, seeing McDaniel at the time of the offence.
As it stands now, the show has been cancelled and the series will no longer be broadcast on TLC. This follows on from actor Stephen Collins who had all re-runs of 7th Heaven dropped from television when his offences were made public.
We may have joked in the past about Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, but this is quite terrifying and putting her children - who have given her her fortune - in harm's way by seeing this guy is pretty fucking despicable.
