Mama June took a can of whoop ass on her daughter after she found out she was cyberbullying two girls in her class ... TMZ has learned.
13-year-old Pumpkin posted 2 cruel Instagram videos last week, ripping into 2 classmates ... calling them fat, ugly and annoying.
What makes it even worse ... 4,000 followers watched Pumpkin rail on the little girls.
The mother of one of the girls got wind of it and blasted Mama June on Facebook, calling her a hypocrite because June has been so active in anti-bullying campaigns.
When June realized what was happening, she went ballistic, and took swift action. For starters, Pumpkin had her Internet privileges yanked. June also ordered her daughter to apologize to all involved.
June tells TMZ ... "My family takes bullying very seriously. I do not tolerate it. As a mom, I jumped in, reached out to the parent and took action."
Pumpkin got the message -- she went back on Instagram, but this time to post an apology.

There's been ENOUGH testosterone in the White House -- it's time for a WOMAN to lead the country, this according to Mama June.
The "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" star was leaving an NYC Barnes & Noble (yes, they still have those) ... when June explained why the next Commander-In-Chief needs to have lady parts.
Fun Fact -- June and her family recently visited the White House in D.C. ... and Mama says one of her daughters was so impressed, she left a "sticky note" for President Obama.
So far, no word if the note actually made its way to the Prez.

Eat your heart out, David Hasselhoff!!!

'Myrtle Manor' Stars
Our Trailer Park Hair Biz
5/5/2013 6:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Not everyone on "Myrtle Manor" spends their days getting arrested ... fact is, two "Myrtle" stars are too busy raking in the cash.
Gina (a.k.a Miss Gina) and Roy (a former drag queen) co-own Tangulls -- the only hair salon inside the trailer park -- where all the cast members get their hair did.
Our trailer park spies tell us ... Gina & Roy's biz has seen a 300% increase since the premiere of the show -- and there are now endless lines, with up to 300 people a day showing up from all over the U.S. of A..
Business is so brisk, supply can't meet the demand ... G & R can only chop the locks of 25 people a day. Some fans actually extend their trips to get that special cut.
Now here's the kicker. Gina and Roy have no plans to raise prices or move out of the park.
Hey ... it beats jail.

Sorry gentlemen, Mama June is officially off the market ... 'CAUSE SHE'S FINALLY GETTING MARRIED ... TMZ has learned.
In just a few hours, the "Honey Boo Boo" star is gettin' hitched to her special man friend Sugar Bear ... for a special Cinco de Mayo wedding fiesta!
FYI -- Mama (real name June Shannon) and Sugar Bear (real name Mike Thompson) met in an online chat room 9 years ago ... hit it off, shacked up, popped out a now-famous kid -- Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson.
But this ain't gonna be no private small shindig -- according to the wedding invitation, obtained by TMZ, cameras will be rolling during the ceremony ... and will most likely air on TLC.
In fact, wedding guests have been warned -- "No cell phones, cameras, or outside video taping will be allowed."
Fun Fact -- we're told the people working the wedding have been instructed to show up in full redneck attire (either hot pink or camo clothing).
'Welcome to Myrtle Manor'
More Cast Members
4/28/2013 4:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Welcome to Myrtle Manor" -- a reality show on TLC about a bunch of Southerners living in a trailer park -- might be setting a brand new record ... not for stellar ratings, but for the amount of cast members getting arrested in one weekend.
Arrest #1: 28-year-old Taylor Jonathan Burt was popped by cops Saturday night after a teenage girl (under 16) told the Myrtle Beach PD she and Burt engaged in sexual relations, according to a local report.
Arrest #2: Lindsay Brooke Colbert was arrested Sunday AM on suspicion of DUI. Cops say they pulled Lindsay over for speeding, but when they approached her ride, not only did she reek of alcohol ... there was an open bottle of rum near the driver's seat, according to local reports.
The 21-year-old was given a field sobriety test -- which she bombed -- and then reportedly accused the cops of picking on her because she's on TV. Police say LBC blew a B.A.C of .15 ... almost twice the legal limit in South Carolina.
As TMZ previously reported ... Taylor and Lindsay weren't the only "Myrtle" members arrested this week ... Amanda Lee Adams was popped on suspicion of DUI Friday ... after she allegedly got drunk as a skunk and crashed into an electric pole.
Maybe this show is more interesting than we thought.

Returning to Reality TV
... In a Wedding Gown
10/6/2012 3:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Linda Hogan isn't gonna let a little thing like NOT having a fiancé stop her from searching for the perfect wedding dress -- and then documenting that search on reality TV show.
Five years after the demise of "Hogan Knows Best," Linda will return to the world of reality to appear on the season premiere of TLC's show "Brides of Beverly Hills" -- even though she's not a bride (or even close to being one).
Sources close to the production tell us, 53-year-old Linda was originally booked on the reality show while still engaged to her 23-year-old ex Charley Hill ... but that relationship bit the dust back in May.
We're told, despite no longer having a wedding to plan for, Linda still wanted to tape her special episode -- which features her "search for the perfect gown."
We spoke to Linda and she tells us ... she wanted to do "BOBH" regardless of her situation, because it shows "the other side of weddings" -- and that sometimes they don't work out.
TLC Singer T-Boz
I'm Getting A Reality Show
... On TLC
10/1/2012 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins -- best known for being one-third of 90's girl group TLC -- is getting her own reality show ... and the network making it happen -- is none other than TLC.
Sources close to the production tell TMZ ... the network has ordered four episodes of Watkins' reality show called "Totally T-Boz" which will air on TLC in 2013.
The timing couldn't be better -- considering T-Boz filed for bankruptcy in late 2011 and could probably use the paycheck.
We're told the show will focus on the 42-year-old single mom as she tries to re-launch her music career ... after recovering from the life-threatening brain tumor she was diagnosed with in 2006.
The brain tumor was so bad, once it was removed, T-Boz had to relearn how to walk and talk.
We're told, the show will star her daughter, brother, cousins and friends ... and is currently filming in Atlanta.

For the first time in nearly a decade, TLC will be reuniting for a U.S. concert tour later this year -- and TMZ has learned, the late Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes will be making a special appearance.

So far, we're told 5 major cities have already been booked -- and even more are in the works.
But the big surprise ... we're told the group plans to pull a Tupac -- incorporating their deceased former member Left Eye in the shows, projecting her image on a big screen and working her vocals into the live performances.
FYI -- today marks 10 years since a fatal car accident in Honduras took Left Eye's life. RIP.
