Mama June & Honey Boo Boo

You Can't Stop Us from Selling Girl Scout Cookies!!!

Mama June
and Honey Boo Boo are going full steam ahead with their Girl Scout cookie campaign ... despite stern warnings from the Girl Scout organization.

As we reported, the Girl Scouts of the USA contacted HBB today to remove a banner she had put on her Facebook, in which she solicited sales for Girl Scout cookies from her 700,000 fans. (FYI -- HBB's not even a Girl Scout. She just agreed to help a Girl Scout friend of hers.)

A rep for the GSUSA told us they had the banner removed because it was unfair to other Girl Scouts trying to sell cookies.

But Mama June tells TMZ, she's going to continue selling Girl Scout cookies any way she can ... even if she's not allowed to post advertisements on HBB's Facebook ... because it's for a family friend.

June tells us, "If I can raise more money for a troop, whoever they are, especially in an area where they don’t get a lot of money, and parents can’t afford to buy a ton of cookies, why wouldn't I help?"

She added, "We're doing nothing wrong."

June says she's already sold 400 boxes and the orders keep pouring in.

As a former GS volunteer - both troop leader and board president/member -- yes, they are violating the cookie sale program rules (HBB is not a registered Girl Scout, selling online, etc.) AND they are also in violation of the rules for using the copyrighted GS logo. No GS logos can be used in advertising and printed materials without council permission and cannot be used unless the logo meets the specific criteria (size, design, etc.). I applaud them for wanting to help a troop sell cookies, but rules are rules regardless of what HBB and her mother think. Personally, I hope GSUSA does pursue this. While the cookie sale program does generate revenue, the main goal of the program is for girls to develop skills in money management, budgeting, sales and marketing, interpersonal relationships and dealing with others, etc. Yes, parents, grandparents, etc. help girls sell cookies, but the bottom line is that there is a right way and a wrong way to do it, and if GSUSA says you're in violation and need to stop, well then you need to stop.

Mother and daughter, in my book, are loser's. Rules are for everyone but them. The mother is in it for the daughter's exposure to the media. How sad!

i will be the first to say i REALLY do not like these people i think the toddler in tiara show should have been removed it was the most disgusting show i have ever seen! it was made for no one else other than PEDOPHILES!!! and for them to get there own reality show with how disgusting and obnoxious they are is unbelievable. but even over all that if they are able to sale cookies that are for a good cause and will cause more people to buy them i see no problem in doing so. To me i wouldn't care if my child sold the most boxes or not, im sure thats why people are complaining. there should be no competition! i would be happy knowing that we all TOGETHER was able to raise more money. This is a problem today people are more concerned about being competitive than the actual cause! GSUSA really needs to reconsider this, like other people say just remove her from the competition if thats all they care about not how much they can raise which i thought was the whole point, guess not :-/

I hate that show. As dirty as those people are, I can't imagine buying food from them no matter HOW it's wrapped. You'd have to update your Shot Record just from TOUCHING the boxes. They give southern people a bad name.
