Lauryn, aka Pumpkin, had been fans’ favorite for years. She was the one who stood up for her younger sibling Alana. The star kid decided to take her sister’s custody when she witnessed Mama June going behind bars. Lauryn was legally granted guardianship of Honey Boo Boo, and the viewers duly recognized her commendable job. But now it appears that she is losing the respect she had worked hard to earn and is facing criticism for her recent behavior. Several viewers have started calling Pumpkin a ‘spitting’ image of her mother lately! Is she really walking in the footsteps of Mama June? How so?
Mama June: Viewers Call Out Pumpkin For Behaving Like Shannon!
Mama June has received backlash for endless things in life. Fans have called her out for her rude behavior and the way she literally abandoned her kids just for a new man in her life. However, viewers have been really proud of her kids as they don’t have a single negative attribute of their mother. But it seems that now some eagle-eyed users have started to spot many similarities between Pumpkin and June. Even a Reddit thread started claiming that the former is now becoming a ‘spitting’ image of her mother.
As per the thread, Pumpkin has changed a lot this year. She is often spotted “abusing fans,” “screaming” at her kids, and being “rude” to almost everyone. A user even claimed that the celeb was exactly like her mother since the beginning, and it’s only now that her true personality is coming out. On the other hand, someone pointed out the possibility of Pumpkin being on drugs. Apparently, there have been several instances when fans noticed her behaving in a questionable manner. Hence, they became skeptical if she was actually on drugs just like her mother. This is another reason why fans started doubting if Jessica was a better choice than Lauryn when it came to Alana’s custody.
Mama June: Is It All Pumpkin’s Fault? Or Is It Just The Money Issues?
Several fans have called out Pumpkin for her rude behavior and similar qualities to Mama June. But many regular watchers came to her rescue. They believe that it isn’t solely the star kid’s fault. A user explained how Lauryn was born and brought up in a toxic environment that might have affected her mental health. Apparently, she had to face sexual abuse allegations, and watching her mother abandon her kids for men must have been tough for her. Moreover, Pumpkin ended up becoming a teen mom, which added heavy responsibility to her shoulders at a very young age!
Several fans noted that Pumpkin is just a victim of harsh circumstances. As per the current scenario, she is raising three kids and Alana without a permanent and proper job. In addition, she is also watching her mother adapt to her life as if nothing happened and witnesses Anna fighting Cancer. Things are really not working in Pumpkin’s favor these days. Hence, there is a fair chance that she is simply not able to cope with the diverse situations, and her frustration is coming out in the form of anger.
