Jump To June Shannon's Stats
June Shannon is mainly known as the mother of Alana Thompson, also known as Honey Boo Boo. Shannon featured in hit shows such as Toddlers & Tiaras and Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. Even though Here Comes Honey Boo Boo was a hit series all over the world, the series did receive a lot of criticism.
Many people found the show to be outrageous, offensive and a good example of child exploitation, while others praised and loved the show. Shannon was probably the most controversial character in the show.
After a few years of success, the show eventually got cancelled in October 2014. The reason for the show’s cancellation was not a decline in popularity, but a huge scandal involving June Shannon. In the beginning of 2014, witnesses reported that June Shannon was dating a man convicted of child molestation. June Shannon’s new partner, Mark Anthony McDaniel was convicted for aggravated child molestation of an 8-year-old child in 2004. He is also a registered sex offender.
The most staggering fact about June Shannon’s relationship with convicted sex offender McDaniel is that the child molested by McDaniel was June’s eldest daughter. The news was not well received by viewers and fans all across the world, who were absolutely shocked at these developments.
June Shannon also appeared in the Dr. Phil Show, where she wanted to share her part of the story. Her attempt at damage control did not work out as she planned, because it came out that June Shannon met with convicted McDaniel accompanied by her daughter Alana. Many people, including Dr. Phil, were absolutely shocked she would let her own daughter, even after her other daughter was molested by McDaniel, near this convicted child molester.
Shannon may have had a short period of success, but her life choices and current affair with child molester McDaniel has burned many bridges.
