Say bye bye to Honey Boo Boo

TLC has stopped production on the Toddlers and Tiaras’ spin off show Honey Boo Boo.

The cancellation came after published reports that June Shannon (Mama June) was dating a registered sex offender after her split from her partner Sugar Bear.

Mama June posted what she called a “turth video” on Alana Thompson’s (Honey Boo Boo) Facebook fan page addressing some of the disturbing rumors and the future of the show.

In the video, Shannon said she learned from TLC on Friday that the show would no longer be produced, adding that TLC had told her to be ‘‘hush-hush’’ about the situation.

‘‘The statement of me dating a sex offender is totally untrue,” Shannon said in the nearly three-minute video which had more than 5,800 ‘‘likes’’ and more than 1,100 shares from the page’s 1.1 million fans within two hours after it was posted.

‘‘I would not ever, ever, ever put my kids in danger. ... That is my past. I have not seen that person in 10 years."

June continued to thank fans of the show before confirming there will not be further production of the show.
