Mama June: Fans Slam June & Producers For Not Speaking Up Against Sugar Bear’s Abuse!
The Mama June fans couldn’t believe it when the star kids revealed the reality of Shannon’s ex Sugar Bear. Apparently, he isn’t as sweet as his name suggests. Recently, Lauryn and Alana appeared on the Dumb Blonde Podcast, where they revealed dark secrets of the show. Pumpkin stated that she had been a victim of physical and mental abuse by Sugar Bear. Amidst the conversation, she stated that once, the patriach threw keys on her face out of anger. Those keys almost damaged her retina, and she had to undergo surgery as well.
This incident is of the time when the family was ‘shooting’ for Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. This clearly means that the team of makers, along with Mama June, knew about the mishap. But they apparently chose to cover it up and portrayed that the kid had an accident with keys. Fans might remember that when the show was airing, it was illustrated in the manner that Sugar Bear was giving keys, but ‘accidently’ it got onto Pumpkin’s eyes. But as per the sister, things were the complete opposite of what was on the screen.
Frustrated, Lauryn added up that there was a lot that wasn’t on the screen. Apparently, Mama June viewers couldn’t watch the show’s reality that had a lot of physical and mental abuse. This doesn’t end here. Apparently, the makers decided to disguise the violent abuse as a ‘freak accident’. Not only this, the family had to do a “reenactment” of the clip where they were ‘jockingly’ talking about it.
