Honey Boo Boo Child: ‘I Love My Gay Fans!’ [VIDEO + ANTI-BULLYING PSA]
‘I’d say, STOP BULLING!’
It’s no secret that family is, how shall we say, ‘open minded.’ When we were heading to her house to ‘sinterview her and her mom, June the Coupon Queen, we had no idea what to expect.
10 minutes away from their house, June called my cell phone: ‘I was going through your Facebook page, and I just have a question: Are you family?’ she asked. Then the line went dead. Apparently, there’s not much cell service – or anything else for that matter – in McIntyre, Georgia.
‘Oh no,’ I thought. ‘She’s probably real conservative and found out I was gay and now doesn’t want me coming to her house, after I’ve just driven two hours from Atlanta!’ But June called back. ‘Sorry for asking, but I figured you might be family. Alana LOVES family!’
Turns out Alana’s Uncle Lee, who she calls ‘Poodle,’ is openly gay and they are very close. Now Alana calls all of her gay fans ‘Poodles.’ The U.K.’s Daily Mail reports that Alana May have outed five months before he officially came out by calling him a ‘Poodle’ on his show.
‘If someone in my class was being bullied, I would say: STOP BULLYING!’ Alana says. June chimes in, ‘I don’t care who you are, nobody should be bullied. Big small, ugly fat, nobody should bully anybody, that’s just wrong.’
