Mama June is done dealing with Crazy Tony. She’s placed a “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” ban on the family friend — real name Tony Lindsey — and says he is no longer allowed on the TLC show.
TMZ reports that the decision was made after Lindsey was arrested in November for taking part in a prank that involved a man in a gorilla suit scaring people on the side of a freeway. Mama June — real name June Shannon — says she doesn’t feel comfortable having him on “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” anymore.
“We love him as a friend … but that was a crazy story,” she tells TMZ. “Not trying to be mean, but we want to keep it family oriented.”
Shannon also clarifies that Lindsey is not her real cousin, saying,”Crazy Tony’s just a family friend … who is just crazy.”
For his part, Lindsey is reportedly “super bummed out” by the news, and blames Shannon’s decision on the fact “TV’s changed that family.”
Apparently the “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” ban is already in effect, because Lindsey won’t be appearing on any new episodes of the hit TLC show. Though he did make memorable appearances, Lindsey wasn’t a regular on the series.
