“Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” matriarch “Mama” June Shannon does not think it’s fair that TLC has not cancelled the reality series “19 Kids and Counting” after series star Josh Duggar admitted to molesting several minors, while “Honey Boo Boo” was cancelled in 2014 after reports surfaced that Shannon was dating a convicted child molester.
“But I wasn’t dating one and no they r going to not cancel [“19 Kids and Counting”] it’s f–ked up @TLC” Shannon, who has always denied the reports about her alleged inappropriate romance, tweeted Thursday.
“I read that the Duggar family said, this happening with their son brought them closer to God and each other,” she said in an interview with TMZ. “So they’re saying it’s ok to have family touch time? Hell no.”
Shannon said in the same interview she is prepared to sue TLC if the show stays on the air. The network has not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.
Josh, the eldest of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s children on TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting,” was accused of molesting five minors during his teenage years. He has since resigned from his position with the Family Research Council.
“Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends,” Josh told People in a statement on Thursday. “I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing, and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling. I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life.”
