“Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” was cancelled by TLC soon after news broke that Mama June’s new boyfriend is a convicted child molester accused of victimizing one of ther family members. Then things got worse when Mama June’s own daughter, 20-year old Anna Cardwell, came forward as the child victim of Mark McDaniel. Now many are worried about the welfare of Mama June’s other children and according to TMZ on Tuesday, there is nothing preventing Mark McDaniel from spending time with Alana “Honey Boo Boo” or the other two underage children.
Mama June’s oldest daughter Anna was molested by Mark McDaniel when she was only 8 years old. The eldest of the “Honey Boo Boo” clan is hurt that her mother would choose the molester over her own child and many are upset that she has them around McDaniel. A Radar Online report detailed the charges against McDaniel and testimony given by Anna as a child. Details of the crimes against Anna were so explicit and shocking that Radar refused to publish them. They did confirm accuracy of the report with Anna Cardwell though.
Despite a video message from Mama June that denied she was even in contact with McDaniel, picture evidence keeps popping up to prove otherwise. Pictures of Mama June and Mark McDaniel at a hotel party surfaced first. The “happy couple” were photographed together on a bed. There is also evidence that Mama June bought a car for her new boyfriend.
The most shocking picture to surface yet shows Mama June, Mark McDaniel and Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson all together. Mama June is sitting on the stairs in the picture with Alana and McDaniel behind her. The picture shows McDaniel’s hand gently touching Alana’s shoulder. Mama June can’t deny being in contact with the convicted felon anymore because she can’t argue Alana’s age in the picture. The “Honey Boo Boo” star is just 9 years old. That makes her one year older than her sister Anna was when McDaniel forced himself on her.
Mama June promised on film that she would never put her girls in danger but she has them hanging around a convicted child molester. Not to mention her oldest child, Anna Cardwell, wants nothing to do with her. Sugar Bear is also upset. He is Alana’s father and isn’t happy that she’s been around McDaniel.
Unfortunately at this point, there’s not much law enforcement can do about the situation. McDaniel has only been prohibited from being around Anna and she wants nothing to do with him anyway. In the eyes of the law, McDaniel served out his sentence and hasn’t violated any rules. Apparently he’s even allowed to be around children. There are reports that CPS is looking into the situation but cannot do anything unless he tries to molest another child.
