Girl Scouts Ask 'Honey Boo Boo' To Stop Selling Cookies On Facebook

Honey Boo Boo thought she could sell Girl Scout cookies to fans on Facebook and crush the competition. But the organization has just shut down her campaign.

The 7-year-old TLC reality star was selling cookies for $3.50 a box plus shipping with an autographed family photo of Alana, Mama June, Pumpkin, Chubbs, Chickadee and Sugar Bea to her 700,000+ fans.

However, a spokesperson for the Girls Scouts has told the young pageant queen to stop the campaign because online selling is not allowed.

Not to mention, they aren't happy that Honey Boo Boo isn't even actually a Girl Scout.

"What we felt was inappropriate is that it appeared that 'Honey Boo Boo' herself was selling the cookies, and she's not a Girl Scout," they say.

Though they've stopped selling on Facebook, Honey Boo Boo's mother says they'll continue to sell the cookies any way they can.

"It's always been my family's goal to give back and help others," says Mama June. "We have helped our family friend sell Girl Scout Cookies for the past three years,."

"While Alana is not an official Girl Scout, we followed all rules sent to us by the local council."

"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?"
