The Duggar scandal has re-ignited TLC's feud with former "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" star, Mama June.
Just months after the network's "Honey Boo Boo" child molestation incident, the "19 Kids and Counting" family has seen public outrage over reports the eldest child, Josh Duggar, admitted to molesting several younger girls, including his siblings, when he was a teenager. But what's interesting is what Mama June says is a "double standard" as to how the network has punished the two families. (Video via TLC)
When pictures of Mama June with convicted child molester Mark McDaniel surfaced last October, TLC showed no mercy for the "Honey Boo Boo" family, immediately pulling the series off the air.
