Mama June's Relationship With Sex Offender Explodes Into Tragic 'Honey Boo Boo' Family Fight on Social Media

It would be tragic enough that such a story exists at all, let alone that so much of it has been confirmed by several reports. The horrifying revelation that Mama June from Honey Boo Boo is dating a registered sex offender is something that she denies vehemently and for good reason. The mere rumor of it has led to the cancellation of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and, worse, could lead to her losing custody of her children. The saddest part of all of this at the moment is the turmoil it's causing among such a previously healthy and happy family. According to Perez Hilton, the Honey Boo Boo family is taking sides and this led to a social media fight between Pumpkin and Uncle Poodle on Monday.

It all started when June found an Instagram account that she thought belonged to Uncle Poodle, one that was bashing Mama June over the entire incident and that incensed her enough to make a post of her own to Instagram calling him out on this behavior. "This here is Uncle Poodle and his man. They are upset because the show was cancelled and they no longer have money," her post began. "They have been selling false stories and making money."

Uncle Poodle responded later that same day using his Facebook account. According to Perez Hilton, the since-deleted post read:

So, renting a Tahoe in marks name in macon ga and paid with your Credit Card through enterprise while staying at residency inn off archright road (which is where first story photo was taken by marks son I'm sure) and all this while you told sugar bear (whom you was still with at said time) that you were in LA for press work why not just be honest for a change

You may try to bash me or dig up old dirt but honestly none of it compares to how you have treated my brother and allowed a convicted child molester who molested your oldest daughter to be around your 14 and 9 year olds.

Then you tell me if I step foot on your property you'd call the police on me for trespassing after I told my brother EVERYTHING with photographic evidence and you trying to tell him mark and his son was only there for diapers yet there's photos or him with you house hunting before the network came down

There are so many reasons to hope that Mama June has not reconciled with the child molester who abused her daughter, to hope that all of the stories circulating about their relationship that crop every day are somehow false, but this just adds a new level to the entire controversy. Here Comes Honey Boo Boo had one of the happiest seeming families in all of reality television. Far from all of the drama and in-fighting that makes up so much of reality TV, they were a genuinely loving and healthy family who never descended into drama for the sake of drama. To see them all picking sides now, and attacking each other like this, is a complete 180.

At the very least, it seems that Uncle Poodle has realized that, too. Now his Facebook holds a more positive message.

Cleaned up my page a bit, venting over, new day, start fresh...after a shower!No more about June and them, talked to a really good friend and she was right, let it all go there's nothing I can do about it. Just worry about me and mine and don't worry about themI love all them regardless of the situation, all I can hope for is right choices and to be frank we have all made bad ones this year.You live, you learn, just let go and relax. Hope everyone has a great day!

For the sake of the family and especially for the sake of the children, I hope that Mama June ends this relationship, if she hasn't already, and puts them first when considering her romantic partners in the future. After all, the health and safety of her children should be everyone's top priority.
