Mama June Shannon is certainly biting the hand that feeds her now that she is dating a convicted child molester. Her show “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” is airing on TLC currently, but they will likely pull the show when they find out the facts. TMZ reports:
The new guy is 53-year-old Mark McDaniel. He was convicted in 2004 for aggravated child molestation. Prosecutors say he molested an 8-year-old child — forcing oral sex. June was dating McDaniel at the same time he molested the child.
We will not identify the child but it’s someone with whom June has contact.
Mark did ten years in the pokey for his crimes and is now a free man, but she has certainly thrown the future of their show in jeopardy by sneaking out of production to go out with him.
Apparently someone told her that dating someone else might prove to be good for ratings, but no one told her not to date someone who touched little kids. Not only is it just inherently bad, but it’s also bad for your career as a reality star. She’ll learn her lesson when the paychecks dry up….
