‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’ Star Alana Thompson Mimics Doing Cocaine On Instagram Amid Mother’s Indictment on Drug Charges
June Shannon, also known as Mama June, has a lot to answer for these days. The reality television star has been indicted by a grand jury on drug charges after leaving an inpatient rehabilitation program with her boyfriend, Geno Doak.
Meanwhile, her daughter, Alana Thompson — or Honey Boo Boo — has moved in with her older sister, 19-year-old Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon. Unfortunately, it seems as if Mama June’s behavior has left an unfortunate impression on Honey Boo Boo, who was caught mimicking drug consumption on her Instagram live.
Mama June’s gas station arrest
Earlier this year, Mama June’s family staged an intervention. During the finale episode of Mama June: From Not to Hot, Mama June’s family came together to try and curb her drug use.
At the time of the intervention, Pumpkin told Mama June, “I’m concerned about you. We care about you. Alana cares about you, Jessica cares about you, Doe Doe cares about you and it’s like everybody’s trying to get you back healthy and you have tunnel vision and the only person you see is Geno.”
Honey Boo Boo told her mother, “Mama, I would love to come home and stay with you — tell you about my day, but I can’t do that because I’m scared.”
The family eventually convinced Mama June to enroll in an inpatient program. Unfortunately, only 12 hours after enrolling, June checked herself out and was picked up by her boyfriend, Geno Doak.
Only two days later, June and Doak were arrested at a gas station in Alabama. After someone called the police during an argument the couple had, June and Doak were arrested for possession of a controlled substance, as well as drug paraphernalia.
“As soon as Geno got Mama from the treatment center, I knew it was over from there. Mama just got charged with possession of crack cocaine, which is a felony,” said Pumpkin.
Indicted on drug charges
After a trial by grand jury, Mama June has been indicted on felony drug charges following her Alabama arrest. Geno Doak is facing similar charges. The Blast obtained court documents detailing the charges laid out against June and Doak.
The documents read, “The Grand Jury of [Macon County] charges that before the finding of this Indictment June Shannon, alias June E. Shannon, alias, whose true name is otherwise unknown to the Grand Jury, did unlawfully possess a controlled substance, to-wit: Cocaine.”
Mama June and Geno Doak could be facing years in prison, while Honey Boo Boo continues to live with her sister.
Honey Boo Boo mimics Mama June
Unfortunately, it seems as if Mama June’s behavior has left a lasting impression on her reality star daughter. Last month, Honey Boo Boo went live on Instagram to answer various fan questions.
At one point, Honey Boo Boo picked up a plastic knife and pretended to prepare and inhale a line of cocaine while on camera. Her sister, Pumpkin, immediately went off on her.
“Alana quit f**king doing … don’t even f**king mimic that on f**king live! Acting like a f**king idiot on live, that’s why you don’t go live on your f–king Instagram,” she yelled at her younger sister.
Fans are concerned, assuming that this is something the young star has seen her mother do. Hopefully Honey Boo Boo’s mother is able to find the help she needs.
