"Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" may have an impressive fan base, but Adam Levine is not impressed.
"Seriously, Honey Boo Boo is the DECAY of Western civilization," the Maroon 5 frontman and "American Horror Story" actor told "GQ." "Just because so many people watch the show doesn't mean it's good.
So many people witness atrocities and can't take their eyes away from them, but that doesn't mean they're good. That show is literally The. Worst. Thing. That's. Ever. Happened. It's complete f***-ng ignorance and the most despicable way to treat your kids. F*** those people. You can put that in the magazine: F*** those idiots. They're just the worst. Sorry, I'm so sensitive to that -- like, I don't know, man, it's upsetting. Just to clarify, I said, 'F*** THOSE PEOPLE.'"
Although "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" has been a huge ratings success for TLC -- over its 10 episode first season, the series averaged 2.3 million viewers and it's been renewed for a second season -- other stars have expressed their concern over the series as well.
“What’s little Honey Boo Boo going to grow up to be? That’s what I want to know," she said. “She’s going to be a fat kid; she’s going to grow up to be a big fat woman. She is, I can tell. She’s just a kid, but you see the genetics are right there. She’s going to have large boob boobs -- Honey Boobs Boobs.”
