Adam Levine, The Voice judge, is known for being a huge whiner. In this months issue of GQ, he said some pretty harsh words about Honey Boo Boo. What will he do next? Were his words crossing the line?
In today’s technology driven society, there is an outcry for anti-bullying measures after cyber-bullying claims the lives of teens across the world. But it seems that when it comes to celebrities, it’s okay for bullying to take place. When celebrities are usually asked about Honey Boo Boo, most speak positively about her. While Adam Levine didn’t openly insult Honey Boo Boo, he did insult their family and their way of life. He said “Seriously, Honey Boo Boo is the decay of Western civilization. Just because so many people watch the show doesn’t mean it’s good. So many people witness atrocities and can’t take their eyes away from them, but that doesn’t mean they’re good. That show is literally The. Worst. Thing. That’s. Ever. Happened.” He continued, saying, “It’s complete f**cking ignorance and the most despicable way to treat your kids. F**k those people. They’re just the worst. Sorry, I’m so sensitive to that – like, I don’t know, man, it’s upsetting.”
Personally, I think he crossed the line. There is a polite way to act, and a rude way, and Adam is constantly throwing rude fits! Whether you like Honey Boo Boo or not (And I’ve honestly never seen an episode of the show), his choice of words was not only poor, but incredibly derogatory. And while history shows that Adam complains about EVERYTHING, his words also show that he hasn’t done his research. While Honey Boo Boo’s family may not be the classiest group on the block, Honey Boo Boo and her family have donated many of her toys to charity, along with funds from her earnings. They frequently are involved in community outreach programs as well. I personally think that Honey Boo Boo can be grating on my nerves, but I also recognize that she’s a child, and she doesn’t deserve to learn about her family being dragged through the mud on the internet. While I hope that Honey Boo Boo’s family doesn’t rise to Adam’s bait, I do hope that Adam has had some time to think about his words and their impact.
