Honey Boo Boo and Mama June can't help out a friend and sell Girl Scout cookies for a friend. According to a report by TMZ on Feb. 28, the Girl Scouts of the USA asked Mama June to remove the banner from her Facebook page soliciting Girl Scout cookies.
Mama June plans to continue helping the family friend with her cookie sales, despite what the Girl Scouts consider to be “unfair to others.” She wants to help raise money for a troop that normally wouldn't sell that many cookies.
“I see it both ways,” Peggy Watts, from Oklahoma City, said. “Perhaps they could work something out to where part of the sales goes to their friend and the rest to entire troop or state.”
Honey Boo Boo isn't a Girl Scout. It is unknown how the Girl Scouts of the USA would react if she was selling Girl Scout cookies for herself.
“With Facebook and Twitter, selling Girl Scout cookies can really go global,” Watts continued. “I remember my daughter going to her father's workplace and standing on a table, selling to everyone who came in the break room. That was mass sales back then. Things have changed. The Girl Scouts need to adapt.”
At the time of publication, Honey Boo Boo and Mama June had sold over 400 boxes of Girl Scout cookies. The orders keep coming in.
