Honey Boo Boo makes money. Quite how much, fans don’t know. But, she’s been on TV for ages, back since Toddlers & Tiaras. But, it seems rather sad that the 15-year-old star of Mama June: From Hot To Not gets haters. And, some fans think it’s even sadder that she feels earning money despite them is worth it. Decent people feel it’s simply wrong to troll on a young teen for any reason at all.
Honey Boo Boo tries getting healthy, but trolls body-shame her
We reported that Honey Boo Boo (Alana Thompson), really makes an effort with losing weight and exercising these days. Her older sister Pumpkin also makes headway with her efforts. And possibly she motivates Alana. But even so, people hate and troll on Alana’s Instagram. On a recent weight loss update, some critics gave rather “backhanded” compliments, and others outright body-shamed her.
Now, it seems if Honey Boo Boo gets haters, she consoles herself with the fact that she earns money. How much money? Well, it must be fairly substantial. TMZ reported in June last year, “a rep for 13-year-old Alana — AKA Honey Boo Boo — recently had an attorney step in and move her money into a new account that Mama June can’t touch.” And now, Alana talked about that money on her Instagram.
Alana doesn’t care if you hate her as she earns money
Taking to Instagram on November 23, Alana shared a photo of her mirror, which needed a good clean. She wrote, ” your opinion don’t make my money 😊 (ik ik my Mirror is dirty 😭.)” One hater responded by saying their opinion does matter, noting, “it does tho- ” And then that became followed up with a long blurb about how celebs make money off their haters, as if that makes it okay.
But Honey Boo Boo stands up for herself. She replied again, saying, “it doesn’t hun, i make money if you like me or not 😂 .” Well, the fact is that the Mama June: From Not to Hot star makes money. Probably far more than her haters. And even if the show ended tomorrow, her large following would still see her promoting products which she gets paid for. She’s known reality TV her entire life. And, someone, somewhere would probably snap her up for another show anyway.
Fans encourage Honey Boo Boo
Loyal fans think it’s sad that she gets that hate. One fan wrote, “you are beautiful and talented don’t listen to this stupidty… haters just haters cause they’re jealous of what you have accomplished and still are accomplishing. Keep doing you, (sic).”
Then another WEtv fan stepped up for Honey Boo Boo. They said, “I love this energy! Keep your head up always and never let anyone’s opinion keep you from getting your bag!!”
What do you think about Alana making money even if you hate her? Does she really not care? Or is it just her way of coping with the trolls? Sound off in the comments below.
