With all the hate Duck Dynasty’s Robertson family is receiving these days, it looks like the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo clan can reclaim its title as America’s favorite redneck family. Sadly, Mama June and Sugar Bear recently experienced a very saddening case of vandalism — right before Christmas, no less!
Whether you love or hate Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, you have to give the Thompsons kudos for their dedication to a wide array of charitable efforts. Unfortunately, plenty of naysayers take this for granted…and the other night, one or more haters chose to target this lovable (albeit, occasionally disgusting) family. Mama June complained about the catastrophe on Facebook, explaining, “Whoever thought it would be cute to take 50 or so bulbs out from our walkway in the back, we don’t appreciate it one bit….please have respect for other people.”
Mama June added that her family’s Christmas light tradition had a long, long history, beginning with Sugar Bear’s parents and extending into a current opportunity to meet fans and raise money for charity. Each year, it takes the family dozens of hours to put up the extensive display, so this case of vandalism necessitated a lot of extra work from the Thompsons.
Fortunately, it looks like the proud rednecks were able to enjoy the remainder of the holidays in peace. What’s more, they’re heading back to Orlando for another enjoyable family vacation! Mama June recently updated Alana’s Facebook page to announce, “since the girls didn’t ask for anything for Christmas, we surprised them about a week or so and told them if we [did] a awesome job helping other families in need we would go back to Disney for Christmas.” The family hit the road Christmas Day and are now having fun in the sun at Disney, otherwise known as Honey Boo Boo paradise!
