The seven-year-old girl known as "Honey Boo Boo" has been selling Girl Scout cookies through Facebook, and upsetting the organization in the process.
Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson, the star of TLC's Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, posted a banner on her Facebook page advertising Girl Scout cookies. It featured a picture of her, and listed pricing and contact info for her 700-thousand-plus fans on the site.
"Honey Boo Boo," whose family lives in Georgia, is selling the cookies on behalf of a friend -- and that's a problem for the Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia, which asked her to take down the ad.
Debbie Caballero, a marketing and communications officer for the Girls Scouts of Historic Georgia, explains to ABC News Radio, "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."
Though the ad has been removed from the Facebook page, "Honey Boo Boo's" mom, June Shannon, indicates that her family will continue to sell the cookies. Shannon, a.k.a. "Mama June," tells TMZ.com, "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?"
