The “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” reality star is attempting to create a viral dance craze with the move she calls, “Honey Boo Boo Bop.” The outlet noted that the family looked pretty happy while dancing off their moves in front of the cameras. The publication also reported on Mama June and Sugar Bear’s possible reunion after a chaotic relationship between Mama June and her former boyfriend, Mark McDaniel.
“Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” was cancelled on TLC in 2014 after the scandal, involving McDaniel was made known to the public. It was known that McDaniel molested Mama June’s eight-year-old daughter, Anna Marie Cardwell back in 2002.
While “Honey Boo Boo” looked pretty happy being surrounded by her family members in her music video, “Uncle Poodle” Lee Thompson reacted otherwise. In an interview with Radar Online, Uncle Poodle slammed Mama June for seemingly using her daughter for fame.
Lee said that while he supports Alana’s career, the music video “is horrible work and does not help her image.” Lee reportedly reached out to Mama June, but the latter simply chose to ignore his concerns.
“Alana is a CHILD and you are ruining her image because of your selfish want for fame! Get a job and make her the #1 you claim she is! Help her and get her some acting classes, she would do great,” he advised.
Alana’s music video has received 809,000 views as of writing.
