Last Monday night, on the Jimmy Kimmel late-night show, Honey Boo Boo endorsed Obama for a second term to continue his record of failure in his first term.
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is a reality television program on TLC that features child beauty pageant participant Alana Thompson (Honey Boo Boo), along with her mother June Shannon, father Mike Thompson and her three older sisters. The show is mostly filmed in and around the family’s hometown in rural McIntyre, Georgia.
A reviewer for Forbes criticized TLC as portraying Honey Boo Boo’s family as a horde of lice-picking, lard-eating, nose-thumbing hooligans south of the Mason–Dixon line.”
The Hollywood Reporter pronounced the show “horrifying,” explaining, “You know this show is exploitation. TLC knows it. Maybe even Mama and HBB know it, deep down in their rotund bodies. Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is a car crash, and everybody rubber-necks at a car crash, right? It’s human nature. Yes, except that … You can say no to visual exploitation. You can say no to TLC. And you can say no to Honey Boo Boo Child. Somebody has to.”
