TLC star Honey Boo Boo has teamed up with GLADD to support today’s Spirt Day celebration, urging others not to bully those who may be different from them.
The ad features a clip from the TLC series ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’ in which she says “ain’t nothing wrong with bein’ a little gay. Everybody’s a little gay.”
Mama June spoke with E! yesterday to discuss the issue and said, “We’ve always supported gay people, even long before the show started,” adding, “we just didn’t do it because we have the show. Some people are kind of scared – what you’d call homophobes – but everyone knew Sugar Bear had a gay brother. It’s not a big deal.”
Spirit Day, which takes place today, urges people to wear purple in support of the LGBT community as well as to stand up against bullying of any sorts.
