Honey Boo Boo's Mom

Haters Make Us Stronger

9/5/2012 3:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

090512_honey_tmzlive_launch_v2Honey Boo Boo's mother June isn't fazed by the millions of pretentious snobs who scoff at her and her family -- telling TMZ Live, "For every person that's hating on us, there's three people that love us."

June "Mama" Shannon called in moments ago ... and we asked if she was irked by all the holier-than-thous crawling out of the woodwork, critiquing the new TLC reality show "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" as redneck trash.

June says she isn't bothered one bit ... because "a lot of people relate to us."

And as far as June is concerned, the haters are only giving her show more momentum -- "It's weird that haters know more about our show than our amazing fans."

As for the massive paycheck June's earning from the show -- way more than $4,000 an episode -- she wouldn't specify an exact amount, but said, "We're very well compensated."

People who take their time and energy into trying to put down others end up making themselves look petty and foolish. America is a melting pot. and just because you like dirt biking in the mud does not mean you are less educated or intelligent than a person who gets manicures and has nothing to do with thier time but to critisize others

WHY, OH WHY, does the media give these people the time of day??? If the media ignored these people, the world would never have to know what a Honey BooBoo is...

I love the show. Yes, they are rednecks, but they sure as hell are funny! And I'm gonna guess that the overwhelming majority of those of you who complain about their weight, are yourselves a bunch of overweight losers who wouldn't dare get on television and expose your lives to the microscope of TMZ. They are infinitely more interesting than the Kardashian clan. I'm glad their show is a hit. Take that, haters!

Reading all these comments is pretty funny. This country is such a judgemental sorry ass society. Why do people hate and talk crap about others so much? I might not agree with their lifestyle but it sure doesnt bother me and to call them greedy rednecks...lol! you all are just jealous that your not making their money. Live and let live as long as your not hurting anybody.

Too bad 'mama' doesn't know what the definition of exploitation is. $4,000 per episode? I wonder if she realizes how much TLC is making by making fools of her and her daughter.

OMG watching this show for the first time. It's addictive, like red neck crack. I'm embarrassed but to
say this but it is really entertaining. I've sunk to a new low.

You'd have to tie a BBQ'd Pork Chop around her neck just to get the Dogs to play with her!!! But, you'll need a longer string....!
