Mama June, the mother of the eccentric reality T.V. star Honey Boo Boo, is putting her foot down, banning a character known as Crazy Tony from appearing on future episodes of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.”
June told TMZ it’s because Tony is ‘too d*mn crazy’ — even for reality TV.
Tony was arrested in November for taking part in a dangerous prank, which involved a man scaring people on the side of a freeway in a giant gorilla suit. It was a move June was none too pleased about.
Honey Boo Boo’s mother tells TMZ that as of now, she’s not comfortable having Tony appear on the TLC mega hit in light of the stunt, saying “We love him as a friend … but that was a crazy story.”

She continued: “Not trying to be mean, but we want to keep (the show) family oriented.”
June also made it clear that despite people calling him “cousin” on the show, Tony is not related to the family.
“Crazy Tony’s just a family friend,” June said. “Who is crazy.”
TMZ reached out to Tony, who said he is disappointed by the news.
“TV’s changed that family,” he said.
