Mama June
is puttin' her foot down ... BANNING Crazy Tony from appearing on future episodes of "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" -- all because he's TOO DAMN crazy ... even for reality TV.

TMZ broke the story ... Tony was arrested in Nov. for taking part in a dangerous prank -- which involved a man scaring people on the side of a freeway in a giant gorilla suit -- a move Mama June was none too pleased about.

The "HBB" matriarch tells TMZ ... 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 continues, "Not trying to be mean, but we want to keep it family oriented."

Mama also makes it clear ... despite people calling him "cousin" on the show ... Tony's not related to the family, saying "Crazy Tony's just a family friend ... who is just crazy."

We reached out to Crazy, who told us he's super bummed out by the news ... adding, "TV's changed that family."

I don't watch the show, but my husband and daughter do. I can't imagine that a mother would want to make her family out to be that ?????????, I can't even come up with a nice word so I don't insult the daughter, she is only following her mothers lead. what kind of future will this little girl have?

The whole show should be banned, and these people are crazy to promote the behavior and attitude of that liitle overwieght girl. This family should be an example of what we do not want our world turning into too...it should not be promoted.

between moonshiners and this cast of detritus they appear to be stereotyping white people as trailer trash.

hey, sociopaths are sad, if Americans are so bad why are you following our stories? Cause you want out of your pathetic trash country? We could do much better without you than you (obviously) could do without us. Enjoy your 'football'

The entire show is outrageous as are all the characters. There is no entertainment value here at all, unless one is a fan of vulgarity, lowlife and 'uncouthness'. Have we sunk this low as a country to enjoy the unrefined, the uneducated,& the unmannered?! Please God, bless America!
